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!
