Okay, maybe I’m a little too exuberant? I did Shred this morning. My leg still hurts when I do lunges, but I was at least able to do them. Man, that workout kicks my butt!! I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do it 5 days in a row.
Anyway – the sun is shining in a clear, blue sky and the temps are supposed to be in the upper 50s WAHOO!!! Of course, it was 41 when I got up & 37 the last time I checked (thinking that I would go do the chickens while the muffins cooked). Oh, I have missed the sun the last 3 days! Friday it was 70 and Saturday it rained all day. Joel took the kids riding at the metro park on Sunday (it was 41). Kristen had worked really hard on Friday to get the inner tube changed in Joel’s bike tire and all of the tires aired up & ready to go and then it rained Saturday. They came back from their invigorating ride and we had home made chicken pot pie. I have a recipe from one of the ladies at HT that is superb!!!
I had the neatest experience yesterday. A good friend of mine has been on my heart and I really felt God encouraging me to call her. I felt like ‘God, what do I say???", but I called her and we had a great chat. I told her I hoped I wasn’t too off the wall (which she expects from me so maybe it pays to be a little on the wierd side anyway). I told her that I felt God wanted me to tell her that He loves her. Y’know what?? I made her day!! How easy it would have been to ignore that tug at my heart & not say anything, but she needed to hear it. It made my day, too.
I guess I’d better go feed the chickens & take a shower & get the kids to the schoolroom. We had yesterday off & I finally got my floor mopped. I took down my snowmen, cancelled my homeschool convention reservations, put away the pile of recipes that hadn’t been refiled, changed my kitchen curtain from a snow scene to little pansies and got the plastic & cardboard recycled (forgot to take the magazines!) So, today it’s back to work. OK – that shower is so calling my name. Have a great God day!
And that’s what’s happening on the homestead.
