This week is flying by! Last night we finished up our Bible conference at church. If I'm counting right, I think we heard 17 messages over the last four days from Bro. Larry Brown, Bro. Dennis Corle, Bro. Jeff Fugate, Bro. Sam Gipp, Bro. Lonnie Mattingly, Bro. Brian McBride, Bro. Bryan Sharp, and Bro. Rick Sowell. I am thankful that my schedule allowed me to attend the daytime services. If I were working outside the home, I would have missed out on some blessings! The Lord laid some things on my heart that I plan to continue to ponder and study over.
Since I've spent so much time away from home the last few days, today there is quite a bit of catching up to do. I've kept up with the daily essentials, but several projects that I had started earlier this week never got finished. I'm hoping that everything will be caught up by tomorrow afternoon. If not, that's okay. Having a housekeeping routine allows time for regrouping. There are no deadlines to meet. Slow and steady applies to our housework, too. After all my bragging last week about our warm January weather, this morning I woke up to a very cold house. After turning on the heat and slipping on some cozy socks I headed downstairs to prepare breakfast. I selected the biggest grapefruit in the fruit basket and thoroughly enjoyed it.For those of you who buy grapefruit at the grocery store, here's a little comparison for you. I purchased a five pound bag of grapefruit the other day for $1.50, which is about as cheap as you'll find it. While driving home from the store I stopped by a roadside produce stand and spotted the biggest grapefruit I've ever seen. At 3/$1, I couldn't resist picking up a few. They are delicious, and just look at the difference in size! Sometimes it's worth it to pay a little bit more money for really fresh produce. Lesson learned.
After breakfast it was time to tackle a few loads of laundry. My wonderful husband bought me a brand new washer and dryer set a few months back. They are front-loaders, and I love them! The clothes come out cleaner and dry so much faster.After finishing up the last load of towels, Lil' Nut and I enjoyed a perfect cold weather lunch: leftover Lazy Potato Soup and fresh-from-the-oven yeast rolls. Tomorrow is supposed to be another chilly day, perfect for staying indoors and tackling little projects around the house.
Enjoy the rest of your day! :)
