It is early afternoon and I just came from lunch with a friend, and I am having a handful of trail mix. Well, to be accurate, I am picking out my favorite things from a bag of trail mix. So I'm eating cashews and peanuts, but no M&Ms or raisins. My husband always wonders where the cashews go. Hehehe
It's been a crazy week with my 9th grade daughters working hard to finish a huge science project that is due tonight. It will consume the rest of my day, hence taking the time for virtual coffee and cashews. In spite of that, I managed to keep up with Home Sanctuary. I have noticed that with each "small thing" I participate in, I find myself looking around and taking it a step further. The task of sweeping baseboards soon had me using an electric broom on all the floors, then a quick mop job. Not only did it get me up and moving (when did I become so out of shape?), but my floors got the cleaning they needed. After following the challenges diligently all month, I can say that there is a difference in our home and in my attitude toward keeping up with things.
Prayer requests today: B., stroke victim whose health is declining; the family of Ella, a toddler who died as the result of an accident this week.
In the meantime, have a great weekend.
