"The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes,
and surely it is in the everyday things around us
that the beauty of life lies."
- Laura Ingalls Wilder
Sunday was lovely. I was able to enjoy countless cups of hot tea, a doughnut or two (shhhh...don't tell), a good movie, reading with Trinity ...the two of us curled up on our brown leather chair covered with Mr. Cozy (my chocolate brown plush blanket),Zac played a round of hide and seek with the kiddos, we had satisfying meals (nothing crazy...just plain simple *hit the spot* wholesome food) and evenings with books and Sinatra and candles.
I'm so thankful for my cozy room. I found an old journal a couple weeks back and one thing I had prayed about (two years ago) is that God would give Zac and I a bedroom, something comfortable for us to retreat too. One great thing about keeping a journal is looking back and seeing the ways that God has worked...the dreams that I dreamt about then that were SO important... now don't seem so important, the ways God taught me then....and the way He is still teaching me the same exact things.
This week I'm STILL reading my two books, I'm going to be doing a little sewing project for Brady and for Trin, and my big project is organizing my recipes that I print off into a three ring binder. You know how you always have those favorite recipes but they are in different books or in a stack of papers or stuck in a recipe box? I want to compile all of my favorites into one big book. I had a big binder all ready so I just bought some dividers and some plastic slip thingys and that's what I'll be working on.
Also, I did get my three days of exercise in last week so I'm aiming for the same this week. Happy Monday.
