“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever.”
Another new week. Another chance to see God’s work. Last week we had our final night of Kindermusik, and Rebecca had her last day of preschool. So not too much going on this week. We’ll likely go to our little local parade tomorrow. We might go to a baseball game, depending on the weather. The kids and I might go to the zoo, park and/or library. And it’s our week for milk pick up. This seems like a good way to end my “Mother’s May”…a low key week.
As usual I still have plenty of ideas of projects to keep me busy in the kitchen. There is also plenty of cleaning I could do in the house. It seems like every room is starting to get overly cluttered again. It looks like we could have a bunch of rain again, so maybe we’ll get to do both baking and cleaning this week. I’m sure the kids won’t mind.
No big updates on me. I’m just trying to listen to my body, give it what it needs and not worry about it. MUCH easier said than done. But I’m trying. And I will praise God for what he is doing in me and through me.
I enlisted Justin and Rebecca to help with meal planning this week. I ended up with a random assortment of ideas. I fit in the ones I could. I’ll have to add some of Rebecca’s ideas to next week’s plans too. When I ask her what she’d like to eat she doesn’t request her favorite food…she tries to come up with a new recipe. Now where did she learn that? 😛
