Monday Daybook

For Today...February 22nd

Outside My Window... bearable winter weather. No snow and no frigid temps. I can handle this kind of winter.

I Am Thinking... about Margaret's family as they bid farewell to their dear Ellie.

I Am Thankful For... a relatively calm week ahead.

From The Kitchen This Week... Beef n' Biscuit Bake; Easy Baked Parmesan Meatballs; Spinach Pasta Toss for Friday (Thanks, Mommy Monkey!)

I Am Creating... a set of table runners for my uncle.

I Am Going... to keep praying that Lily's new awkward bedtime habits and anxieties will work themselves out.

I Am Reading... the latest issue of Faith & Family; An Undivided Heart by Vonette Bright and Nancy Moser.

I Am Hoping... that hubby will be able to return to normal business hours very soon.

Around The House... we're working on our Sacrifice/Good Deeds jar again this year, but seem to be struggling.

Lyrics In My Head... 'at the cross you beckon me...draw me gently to my knees'

One Of My Favorite Things... the smell of a Glade Creamy Custard & Apple Blossom candle in my kitchen.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Lily's second piano lesson; possibly my cousin's high school basketball game; follow-up with my Creighton instructor.

Picture Thought I Am Sharing... (Brought to you by Jonah)

  1. The dishes from your kitchen sound yummy but that picture is making my mouth water.
    So happy for you that the weather is breaking, no more ice on the trees?
    Happy Birthday to the wee one.
    Mama Bear

  2. That picture is making my mouth water, too! My kids seem to be struggling with their sacrifices and good deeds, too, this Lent. It is good to know others are walking through this "desert" and struggling like we are. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thank you for your prayers, Sarah. My heart aches with missing Ellie but I trust in God's goodness and hope to learn--truly learn--at the foot of the cross this Lent.

  4. Those lyrics have been in my head since your post this week...for that I say "thanks!"

    Hope the follow-up appt. went well!!

    Jonah's photo is making me drool. Do your children realize how blessed they are to have such a great cook/baker for a mom?!

  5. And PS - hope you enjoy the spinach pasta toss...and how simple it is to make:)

  6. MM, glad to hear that the lyrics are stirring in you as well.
    As for the caramel rolls, I must admit that I didn't make them. It was hubby. The rolls are one of his specialties! Although, I do love to bake too, hubby seems to do much better with all things involving yeast! :)


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
