On my bedside table: my Bible, sewing items
On my TV: nothing
On the menu for tonight: spaghetti and meatballs and a salad
On my To Do List: hopefully my last doctor's appointment with my neurosurgeon, clean our house, organize the kids rooms...this is on going!!
New Recipe I tried last week:
4c rhubarb chopped
Place all these in a saucepan; cover, and let simmer over medium heat until all the rhubarb has melted down. Place in a jar and keep in the refrigerator. Use like you would any type of syrup.
Our kids like to use this as syrup for waffles or pancakes. They have even added it to Sprite or tonic water for a fizzy drink.
In the craft basket: skirts for the girls and I. I'm really enjoying making them.
Looking forward to: Planting our garden, getting our "farm" animals.
Homemaking Tip for this week: When your children want to be in the kitchen with you, let them. One day you will turn around and be surprised at what they can do on their own.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): I came upon this blog Finding Joy in My Kitchen the other day and have found a ton of wonderful recipes.
Favorite photo from last week: This is my first ever apron that I made. I made it for my nephew's birthday. Can you guess what his favorite color is???? Orange! He loves to be in the kitchen with his Mom cooking. I'm still waiting for a picture of him in it....hint hint Heather!
Lesson learned the past few days: It is very difficult to protect your children from every bad thing that happens in this world. All we can do is give it to God and let him "fix" the situation. This is very hard for me to do. I have trouble giving all to him when it comes to my children. I'm working on it though.
On my Prayer List: My Husband, Children, Parents and friends and family who need to accept Christ as their personal savior.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: Philippians 4:6
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
