This week was another unremarkable week, yet there are always highlights, or favorites, to be found.
1. Yellow kitchens: What can I say? I love bright sunny yellow kitchens. It goes well with my sunflower obsession. A few weeks back, I shared how I had found the perfect curtains for my kitchen. I was asked to share a picture of them, so here they are:
The print on the ruffle features sunflowers. When the blinds are open, it makes the kitchen so much lighter, which is needed because my yellow walls are a VERY yellow color, as you can see below:
Yellow just makes me happy!
2. As I mentioned last week, I was scheduled to have part 2 of my makeover. I got highlights in my hair with two colors instead of one. I don't have a picture yet, because when I take pictures of myself, I always seem to hold it where it highlights my nose. (See my profile pic!) I really do not have that big of a nose, so I decided to wait until I can get someone else to take my picture.
I don't understand why it is, but I cannot seem to convey what it is that I really want done with my hair. This time I had a picture of what I wanted, yet somehow, the end product was not what I envisioned! I do still like it, though. Maybe someday, I'll have the dream hair-do!
3. Someone else to cook dinner: I mentioned this in my Daybook, but it is worthy of being a highlight here as well: My oldest daughter cooked dinner for me on Monday. What a blessing it was to come home (after a hard day at the hairdresser's) to a meal already cooked (and the kitchen cleaned up)! I just fixed myself a plate and then sat down and enjoyed a leisurely meal. It was awesome!
4. Keeping up with Karyn: This week, I've been enjoying reading Karyn's posts about her trip to Zambia. It's very interesting! I know one thing, I'm thankful that I'm not called to go there! (Remember my aversion to sweating.) But I'm glad and thankful that Kathryn and Vinj are! Go to Karyn's blog, Musings from Me, and check it out!
5. Quote of the Week: "If men and women were surer of their God there would be more genuine manliness, womanliness, and godliness in the world, and a whole lot less fear of each other. " ~Elisabeth Elliot
It all comes back to trust ...
