We are already at the end of the first week of August. How did this happen? Where have the past seven months gone?
I haven’t done a ‘lately’ post for a little while and I thought I’d just slip this one in while I have the time and photos!
Making: Playdough for Jacob.
Cooking: Lots of low carb meals. #gettingolder
Drinking: Tea. What else?
Reading: The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
Wearing: My stay at home Monday uniform. Trackies and my favourite ’round the house’ t and a comfy cardigan.
Appreciating: New relationships that reinforce to me that I need to keep doing what I am doing for the 99% and ignore the 1%.
Loving: How the photos I took of the kids turned out. Even though there wasn’t one in the fifty that I took that didn’t have them all looking at the camera at the same time! #groan
Enjoying: The peace that is my self-imposed quiet time when Jacob goes to bed. Only noise is the clock ticking and my fingers tapping on the keyboard. #bliss
Knowing: That I can’t fix the problems in my beloved ones lives.
Learning: To let go and allow God to do his thing more and more each day.
Watching: All the rain fall down on my garden. I am so grateful for the rain that we have had in the past few days and I LOVE the look of the forecast..more rain! God is good.
Listening: To the last chapter of Missional Motherhood by Gloria Furman via my Audible account. This book has blown my mind and reminded me about so many good things that God wants us to be busy with. #reviewcomingsoon
Celebrating: Rob being another year older.. and wiser at tactfully telling me to let things go.
Making: A start on the binding of my latest quilt.
Anticipating: More growth on my succulents.
Needing: To complete the editing of the photos from my latest photo shoot.
Disliking: Sin. My sin, your sin, their sin.
Opening: My new secret sister allocation for this year. It’s always exciting and daunting at the same time.
Noticing: Just how much my math nerd is enjoying Adam Spence’s World of Numbers.
Following: The Australian’s at the Olympics. All my favourite sports are on right now. Cycling, Gymnastics and Swimming.
Getting: A sore back because I should be sitting at my desk and not at the kitchen bench. #ergonomicsallwrong
Saying: Goodbye for now.
Have a wonderful Monday whereever God has placed you.
