39 degrees and “overcast” according to weather.com – but I’m seeing some SUNSHINE! 🙂
On my reading pile:::
I’m smack-dab in the middle of Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas – Germany and the state of its churches in 1934 at this point. I think I’ll have to write a review when I’m done – if just for myself. My Oma and Opa were young people in Germany in 1934 (my Opa was born in 1911 in Frankfurt, Germany and my Oma in 1918 in East Prussia). I wish they were still alive so we could talk about this time!!
On my TV:::
On the menu for this week:::
ONE DAY SOON I will post this!!!! Last week I put all my recipes in notebooks and scanned what was feasible to make soon … This week I’m looking thru all the recipes I’ve pinned on Pinterest. THEN I will menu plan!
On my to do list:::
I need to soak-and-scrape the border off the wall in my bathroom so we can prep and PAINT some day … I still need to find an ALMOND colored sink to replace the old sink in there (WHY are there only WHITE sinks in my area??!!).
I need to prepare the W2s and 1099s for our church and school staff. My computer basically does them for me, it is just a matter of TAKING TIME to print out all the copies and sort them and mail them off to the IRS.
Looking around the house:::
Even after everyone being home all weekend, my house is surprisingly calm and clean … well, don’t look at the cobwebs on the ceiling and dust in the corners. I am hoping to develop a simple cleaning schedule along with my menu plan – some day. soon.
From the camera:::
NOTHING RIGHT NOW … but here’s a pic of the sink (and its hardware) that I can’t wait to REPLACE!!! (you can’t see it in the pic, but there is a flawed spot by the little overflow hole)
Something fun to share:::
I have 2 plane tickets TO GERMANY for March!!!!!! After much contemplation and talking myself down from the mommy-guilt of leaving my girls and husband for 10 days (they will spend this time with my in-laws), I decided to take my 13 year old son to GERMANY over Spring Break – to visit my father, aunt, and several other relatives – and to show him where he was born at an Army hospital in Wuerzburg. We’ve applied for his passport – and I’m already packing suitcases in my mind … Wow, I’m going to GERMANY!!!!!! 🙂
On my prayer list:::
- A friend whose father’s funeral is tomorrow (Tues)
- A blogger whose son starts chemo this week.
- Guidance for our family, day-by-day, step-by-step – for God to reveal His will clearly for some upcoming decisions
- My daughter has had a stomach ache off and on for 3 days (she’s back at school today; praying she’s ok); my son has had a low grade fever off and on since Wednesday (he’s back at school today too).
Bible verse, Devotional:::
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, said the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
