Come on over and join me on the front porch for our Monday visit!
Last Monday, we did not have our visit. I was being anti-social. (smiles) I was just too tired to sit on the porch. Did you miss me?
Today will be a lovely day. I am going to listen to a sermon while I clean my house. I have a new one from John McArthur that I have been saving for a special day. I know it will encourage and cheer me, while I do my household duties.
I had a great weekend. It was spiritually refreshing! Even though there were trials, I was blessed beyond measure. I sang hymns. I read some lovely, encouraging articles. I cleaned and made a nice home for my family. Amy (15) made lasagna. I shared some with Nana. I also gave her and Grandpa some homemade chocolate chip muffins.
Last night, I was thinking that Amy and I need to start sewing again. We had attempted a (self-inflicted) 60 day sewing challenge. We attempted to hand-sew (no machine) 60 aprons in 60 days. I gave up after a couple of weeks. It wore me out. We decided to still make the aprons, but take as much time as we needed. I will pull out our sewing box and fabric today and get some projects going. It is fun to sit and chat with her, while we both sew together.
I have a little grocery shopping to do this afternoon. My oldest daughter, Rachel, (22) is coming home for a visit tomorrow. I don't think she has been here since April, so it will be a wonderful visit! She asked me to make homemade pizza for lunch. I have to come up with a good idea for supper as well. I will have Amy bake a chocolate cake.
I love that Rachel thinks of home-cooked food when she thinks of her childhood home. She says,"Mom, will you make me homemade pizza?" I smile to myself, and say, "I will make anything you want!"
I have been writing her letters to cheer her up. I love the letters she writes back to me. While we do talk on the phone on a daily basis, the letters are such precious treasures.
I better get some housework started while the morning is still quiet and everyone is still sleeping. We will start our homeschool in a couple of hours. I want to be cheerful and ready to begin!
Have a wonderful day!
