Morning Friend!

Good-Morning-Coffee-PinkToday is: Monday, April 6


Outside is: Beautiful. The sun is cracking over the horizon painting shades of soft tangerine through the quiet blue of the leaving night as the dark rain clouds start to roll in.


I can smell:My coffee. Today I added bit of cocoa to it to make a cheap mocha!! LOL!!


In the oven for dinner: We are having tortellini for dinner tonight. All that with a light salad, topped with hard boiled eggs, and some fruit. Yummy!!


What I have been thinking about:  I feel so blessed. I have a husband whom I love to the depths of my soul. I have children who amaze me with their thoughts and dreams, and then they go out there and accomplish them! I have a home, a full fridge, friends, ministry and so much more!! I am so thankful for it all. I am most thankful for my Savior. He has delivered me from darkness that surrounded me and held me captive in the waiting room for hell and blessed me in His goodness with all this and so much more! God is good all the time, and all the time, God is GOOD!!


The project I am working on: I am getting fabric together to start the girls making some baby quilts. Sewing Lessons for the girlies!! We are going to be working on them this summer again. I have been so blessed too!! I have a friend who has been giving me her left over fabrics! The fabric is absolutely perfect too!! They are all child oriented pink, blue and greens!! This year the quilts will be so much more friendly to my pocketbook!!


Mood today: I am pleasantly mellow at the moment. I am telling you Coffee, Young Living Essential Oils and a whole ton of Jesus make the world such a better place!!


What I am reading: Inner Transformations Using Essential Oils: Powerful Cleansing Protocols for Increase Energy and Better Health I am starting a cleanse with some of my girlies very soon. We are going to cheer each other on and see if we can get our bodies in the best health we can!! Spring is the time for new beginings!!


School Stuff: I am putting together some lessons about Israel right now. We are going to learn some of the geography of the area and types of people. I have a friend who just came back from there a month ago and has some amazing stories and pictures to share with us! We also just finished studying the Sader. I thought that was appropriate since we just had passover.

Today: Saturday January 11, 2014


Outside is: still dark and quiet.


I can smell: The coffee starting and the cinnamon oatmeal I have on the stove.


In the oven for dinner: I am making chicken chili and cornbread!! Yummm!! I am making the chili in the crockpot in a little while. The house is going to smell crazy good!! Then about 30 minutes before we eat, I will make the cornbread. Have not decided if I should make honey cornbread or cream corn style cornbread…guess we will see how the day progresses…

What I have been thinking about: Lately, I am really getting back into the healthy way of living.  I am finding more organic meals to make, herbs to try,  oils to use, that kind of stuff. I know God planned that for us originally,  not to eat genetically modified foods. I got a bit lazy there for a little and was buying prepared foods like bread (gasp) instead of making my own. I know. Its true. That is terrible. I have no good excuse. I am getting myself back into the world of healthy eating and living.  I will still always have a sweet tooth though and baking, even with better ingredients, will always be going on here in our family. So we need to make sure all the other stuff is better!! Ha ha ha!!


The project I am working on: Training our puppy to walk on a leash. I am not sure this will ever happen. She just does not get it that she has to walk by me. I think she was paying attention to the tv when we were watching the movie UP, because I swear she thinks she is Doug sometimes. Remember him? The dog who would be talking to you then randomly a “squirrel” would just distract him entirely. That is Lola. Except with her its like the wind blows  and her attention is gone.  I will be working on this project for a very long time.


Mood today: Hmmm… I think I am content at the moment.


What I am reading: The Book Thief. It is actually better than I thought it would be. No I have not seen the movie yet. Actually, I have had the book for a few months just finally had a few moments to read it!!


School Stuff: Well, we were off. So no great info there. You can see my post from the other day but nothing exciting yet to share…but next week maybe!!
