Monday Meanderings

Bible Study
word study on words

Memory Verse
1 Thessalonians 5:11 "Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."

Husband Encouragement
* cheerful attitude
* try to dress up more
* picked up The Love Dare devotional at the store today when I was shopping, so I'm excited to start reading this!

Train Them Up
* daily devotions (stay tuned to find out what book I'm using for my little ones)
* continue one-on-one time before nap
* try to get back to school time

Personal Goals
* stay off computer. keep it plugged in at the desk instead of letting it sit on the couch all day where it's too easy and convenient and tempting to log in online every few minutes

Absolutely MUST Do
* write two birthday thank you's
* mail two packages
* prepare info for MOPS newsletter
* finish preparation for tomorrow's MOPS meeting

Zone - garden. really hoping to get it tilled and then plant right away this week before the soil crusts back over. Still need to buy seeds to plant sunflowers by the barn. The garden is completely planted, thanks to my amazing, hard-working husband!!

Menu - need to use up diced ham, green onions, hot dog buns, shredded cheese, spinach salad, tortillas

M - brats, mixed veggies, orange
T - ham and cheese quiche, peaches
W - soft tacos
Th - breakfast for dinner - breakfast casserole, fruit salad, muffins
F - margarita pizza, salad, breadsticks
S- kids meal - corn dogs, mac n cheese, green beans
Su - herbed pasta (thanks, Holly!), salad, Italian bread w olive oil

Dessert of the week: 1 Dish Blueberry Raspberry Cheesecake

* My friend Angie had her baby Saturday morning! Welcome Gabriel Bennett (hope I spelled that right). He's having some tests run in NICU for a low resting heart rate, so we're praying he clears them!
* Kevin's day off is Tuesday and then the rest of the week is training week so he's home a little bit earlier!
* MOPS on Tuesday
* My SIL Holly's first ultrasound on Thursday! Holly's family has a long history of twins, so we'll find out if they're having twins! Either way we're equally excited, one baby or two!!
* Holly is coming to visit for a little while on Friday!

Things I'm thankful for today:
1. beautiful weather
2. a great start with AdvoCare last week! I think I've lost 2-3 lbs!!
3. Kevin's going to be home today so hopefully we can get a few things done around the house --mow the lawn, work on the dining room
