catching up


I have bad news about this pretty plant.  I think I drowned it.  It's not dead yet, but I'm afraid it might be on its way out.  I wish I had a green thumb like my mom!  She can grow anything anywhere and for all year, and I am the polar opposite.  I specifically asked the gal at the store about the care for this little fella, and she said room temperature, no real sunlight, minimal watering.  I am not a hundred percent sure, but minimal probably means more than not ever.

I hope it sticks around, because it sure does make me happy.

Also, I finished my favorite candle.  I mean, the wick would not even light on Friday morning.  Not even a tiny spark.  It was done.  So I've been lighting this one, but it's not as good as the one I finished.  It was a gift from a really sweet teenage girl from a year ago.


I go through spells when I listen to certain songs on repeat.  This is my most current one.  I sang this song (the old version, of course) in high school choir many moons ago, and I still remembered the words.  Do yourself a favor, and go listen to this!

Chris Tomlin's songs are amazing, and I love that they're straight out of scripture.


On Saturday afternoon, while waiting on dinner, I sat down to fill up the white spaces in my planner.  I love this planner, still, four months after receiving it as a gift.  It's my favorite gift ever.  Some of those things you see are stickers and embellishments, some are drawn.  It was looking mighty white after being home with a sick kiddo all week, so I added some color and things I prayed for.  I use this for regular schedule type things, but I love to use it for prayer and quiet time as well.  I love that it comes blank, and that I can be as creative as I want.


I wasn't sure if we would be going to church on Resurrection Sunday, but we were able to go!  Drew was finally feeling well enough, and I was thrilled to not have to miss another Resurrection Sunday.  Look at my grown up boys!  They're so handsome, if I do say so myself.  I loved sitting with them during the service, since I didn't sing in choir.


After the early service I came home to finish up our lunch.  I'd put a roast on the night before and I added some finishing touches and side dishes and called it a day.  My mom and sister brought potato salad and sweet treats, and I am so thankful!  They were delicious.  Still are, in fact...they need to get out of our house!

After lunch, Toddley and I fell asleep and enjoyed a quiet afternoon at home, while the boys hung out with friends.  Some ended up here after they went out to eat and stayed until late.  I love having their friends over!  Their laughter is like music to my ears, and I am so thankful for the sweet friendships they have.  It was a good weekend and today we decontaminated this house and washed all the bedding and blankets and used the rest of the Lysol.  (Not really.)  I did get out today for a bit, but more about that tomorrow....

Love to all!
