Recent Household Improvement: Paper Towel Holder Installed.
[Shoutout to Adam for taking care of this Recent Household Improvement.]
Giving someone flowers has a special joy like nothing else. It may be simple and it’s probably not going to solve a problem, but what it can do for the spirit makes it the perfect gift.
[My grandma went into the hospital on Wednesday and was in ICU that evening. She’s recovering and doing much better, but it was quite scary for a day or two. I was so blessed getting to take her flowers.]
I’ve been very lazy about taking constructive me time. I kept saying that I wanted to paint my nails, but I’d sit and play a game. When I take time for myself to relax I don’t want to just zone out or become a zombie. Living that slight edge life is about living on purpose. So, tonight I painted my nails… Easy to do, easy not to do.
[I may or may not have gotten nail polish on the sink…]
[…Okay, I did get nail polish on the sink. I’ll clean it up!]
Making decisions can be difficult, especially when it comes to a winter coat! I haven’t had a warm functional coat for a few years now, so I’m doing the adult thing and researching some options. At times it’s daunting to see a price tag, but much like my Daily Disciplines, it is an investment into my future. Here’s to making a warm informed investment into my winter!
I’d gotten a day or two behind on my bible reading plan, so I took some extra time to catch up. It was strange that I was reading in Ecclesiastes and felt exactly like Solomon: everything is meaningless! Some days you just wonder what it’s all about, but the good news is that there’s a season for everything and this too shall pass!
[I kept saying I’d get a picture of the pie I made, but I did not. So, I’ve made a second pie and here’s the only picture I have of it.]
Having guests helps you to wake up to the reality of your living space. When you know people will be over, you shift into ‘clean in-fix it-trash it mode’. It’s a beautiful and horrible thing.
[Photos of the finished pie will be posted tomorrow. Adam and I tested it, and he said it was one of the best he’s ever had!]
Love costs you something. I bought coffee for when my mom visits. I do not drink coffee. This is love.
[This was a little stressful. I wanted to pick out a coffee that wasn’t just what my mom would buy herself, but something she might get as a treat. I believe I have been successful.]
