Friday's are the day I stop and look back over the past week and reflect on the blessings I've experienced on this Journey. Whether the week has been tough or easy, there are always highlights to be found.
1. The highlight of our week was, of course, seeing the babies. My daughter has been bringing them over most evenings and we get to play with them a couple hours before bed time. So much fun!
2. AI DVR: We got behind on watching American Idol so we've all been watching it together in the evenings from our DVR. I discovered the babies like to play while it is on. They love to bounce along with the music.
3. On Monday, I wore an outfit with spring colors to summon forth Spring - and it worked ... Okay, it had already been forecast to be warmer, but I still think it helped. I went two days wearing flats instead of boots but now rain has set in, so I'm back to boots.
4. I've been trying out new recipes and so far, they have all been good. I love new recipes - I've been bored cooking the same old, same old. Last night, I tried a new lasagna recipe with a little twist to it, Pillsbury's Slow Cooker Lasagna, and I loved the flavor. I also tried another crock pot recipe, Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini, Spinach and Chicken Soup. (Don't the names of recipes nowadays get longer and longer?). This soup had a broth with great flavor. Next time I'm going to cut back a wee bit on the amount of tortellini I put in it.
5. Speaking of recipes reminds me of a great post by Edie at lifeingrace. Edie talks a lot about vocation and God's work for us. As a homemaker, her words in this post resonates with me:
You don’t need to change the world.
Just make dinner.
It’s practically the same thing. - Edie Wadsworth
Go to her site and read the full article, You Don't Need to Change the World - she gives you a lot to ponder.
And so wraps up another week on the Journey. How did your week go? Any signs of Spring your way? Leave a comment and share, or link up at Susanne's blog, Living to Tell the Story, and give us all the details. Because inquiring minds want to know.
