Well hello! How have you been? I pray you are having a wonderfully blessed day in our LORD! I'm excited to be back. I didn't intend on taking such a break from blogging, but physically I had to for a couple weeks.
Ever since I started back teaching my K-3 class, I have suffered from a lingering cold. Which got pretty rough about two and a half weeks ago. There was constant sinus inflammation, an ever aching head, and total lack of energy by the end of the day.
But praise the LORD! I have not had a headache for 3 days now, and I have had an almost scary amount of energy! Which has been great for getting housework done. :D
So, enough complaining. It's time to praise the LORD for the good moments HE has blessed me with during these past few weeks.
My last post was about how my hubby and I were going hunting for the first time together. We did go, but didn't see a thing. We did enjoy the time spent together, but agreed we prefer to hunt in our own tree from now on. That physical attraction between a man and wife, well, let's just say it's kind of hard to ignore it and focus on hunting when sitting so close together in such gorgeous scenery... :P
I was able to enjoy some fresh fried chicken, mostly guilt free, for the first time in over a year. There was one evening, I just has a terrible craving for it, but fought an inner battle on how unhealthy this meal typically is. So I went online to try and find a way to enjoy this treat, without completely wrecking a years work of eating mostly clean. And I found a recipe where the chicken is fried in coconut oil! SCORE!
And oh, how yummy it was with homegrown, sautéed green beans, sweet potatoes, homemade wheat rolls and sweet tea! :D
My hubby was extra sweet one evening. When I came back in from hunting one evening, I found this sitting on the table...
A sweet note, fresh sunflowers, and pumpkin spice doughnuts (which I ate without ANY guilt). Oh, do I love that man...
I've had to endure this scene quite a bit of late...
A house almost constantly disorganized. Not matter how hard I try, I can not seem to keep my house organized. It is especially hard this time of year when we are constantly coming in and going out with our hunting gear. I love to keep a tidy house, and I will admit seeing it out of order gets me flustered very quickly.
But this has been a tool the LORD is using in my life. To teach me how to be slow to anger, and not to let something so little as a disorganized house drive me batty. I'm striving to be thankful that I have a house, that will become disorganized at times, and to praise the LORD for the time and ability I have to be able to put it back together. :)
The fair rolled into town last week. Which meant an evening spent with family and friends, riding rides, and eating loads of cotton candy... :)
Saturday, I went along with Justin, while he cleared a new hunting trail...
I did take a few swings with the machete. But mostly I was there to watch our out for him. It did give me a great opportunity to take some photos of the slowly turning leaves...
Thank-you LORD for your blessing on me! :)
Well, time to get off here and get supper started.
How have you been enjoying life theses past few weeks?
Have a wonderfully blessed day! Thanks for stopping by!
