Outside my window...cold and cloudy. We are going to have temps in the teens this week...brrr.
I am thinking...about the year ahead and all of the things I want to do. I have been slacking in my list making (gasp, I know!) and I need to get back on the ball.
I am thankful...for our new Small Group. Rondell and I recently made the tough decision to switch Small Groups. We had the opportunity to visit a group that is completely going through and teaching on the Bible. Rondell and I realized how much we need to know the basics (since we are new to really studying the Bible) in order to increase our walk with Christ. While we will miss our old group (we will still keep in touch with them, of course...Hi Jodie and Laura!) we love all of the information that we are absorbing and all that God is having us learn through Josh and Katie!
I am praying...for obedience.
I am reading...Twilight...well kind of. I watched the movie this weekend and I thought it was really good, but now I want to read the book (because I love to read). My co-worker is going to bring me the book tomorrow and I will start reading right away.
I finished Captivating and I'll be sure to let you know my thoughts soon.
I am hoping...to figure out a good system and routine to get my projects done. I need to focus on one thing at a time (I feel like I've said this before!).
From the kitchen...Chili, cabbage & noodles, and maybe tacos. I need to get back to meal planning too.
Around the house...it feels like chaos. I have too many little projects going on at once and I need to focus on one at a time. This week I plan on finishing the kids' bathroom and organizing our hall closet.
One of my favorite things...listening to Jamison and her friends talk. Jamison's friend Hannah and her family came over for pizza last night and it was so cute to listen to their little conversations.
A few plans for the rest of the week...figure out a master plan in getting a good project routine, finance routine, menu routine, etc...finish the kids' bathroom, read Genesis 1-14, and go to my friend Tonya's Stampin Up! workshop.
Here is a picture I'm leaving you with:
Jamison got this cookbook for Christmas from Aunt Roni. It has a lot of nice recipes and one of them is called "Froggy-in-the-water cupcakes." Jamison, Aunt Roni and Caleb made them on Thursday. The recipe calls for blue frosting but we had a can of strawberry frosting and that worked just fine for Jamison. Aren't they cute!?
