A Restful Evening at Home and Organizing Recipes

Garden of Grace

The sun has set. It is quiet and pleasant here at home. As I look around me, I see groceries still on the table. I didn't put them away yet. I haven't been able to do much cleaning this week. I know this affects my mood. When I have on a nice, pretty apron, and listen to my gospel music while I work, somehow it brings me peace and joy. I think I will spend a half an hour tidying up and enjoying the quiet evening.

I have a great project idea for Amy (15) and I to work on together. First I will tell you what happened yesterday. I had a lot of errands to do. Mr. White was home with the boys, Matt (17) and John (12). I took Amy to dance class and waited for her in the car. I had a book with me and a hand-sewing project. When her class was almost over, I decided to use the office phone to call Matt. I offered to buy a big bag of shredded mozzarella cheese if he would make a batch of homemade pizza dough. I didn't know where the recipe was back at home, so I recited it from memory. He copied it onto our chalkboard. (It was delicious!!) This gave me an idea:

Amy and I are going to make a list of all our favorite meals. Then we can write them out, in a fun way, and place them in my homemaking binder. (I'm  really not as organized as I sound - don't be fooled. - smiles) It will be a great way to handle emergencies such as what happened yesterday. I love having someone back at home all the time. If I am not here, the house still runs without me. The children have been trained to take over and, even though they don't "Love my Kitchen" (or house) as much as I do, they do a decent enough job.

I'm off to clean up a bit and enjoy a quiet evening. Hope you have a wonderful night!

I tend to throw things together when I make things. Lately, I've been trying really hard to make an effort to write down how I make things. I want Munchkin to have recipes for her favorite foods. I have a notebook where I keep the recipes as I don't want them to get lost. I try to remember to take pictures of the finished products, so I can create scrapbook type recipe pages for her.

Have a blessed Memorial Day weekend.
