Thankful Thursday

It feels like it has been a much longer week than it actually has.  I think I've been over tired for some odd reason.  Makes it more difficult to cultivate the thankful attitude.  But here I am, because I expect this of myself and I want to have a thankful heart, even in the midst of being tired.

1.  I'm thankful that I'm not nearly as tired as I was when I had Lyme disease.  Wow, talk about tired, it was almost as bad as being depressed as far as the tired bit goes.

2.  I'm thankful that I have a loving husband who is willing to indulge my crazy ideas, even when they mean more work for him.

3.  I'm thankful that my daughter came up with a way to deflect her frustration during class time.  She ended up having her animals join us and do some of her work for her.  It's quite fun to have an entire class to work with.

4.  I'm thankful for this thing Jesus is doing with me that's related to water and fishers of men.  It's not fully expressible yet, but let me tell you, I was gutted this morning and I haven't felt this free in quite some time

5.  I am so thankful that my nephew, Bryce, was born this past weekend and that he is home, safe and sound!  He's a cutey!  I can't wait to give him a ton of kisses and whisper blessings into his ears!

6.  I'm thankful for the good work that God has been doing in me and those around me.  I can't wait to see what will happen next.

What are you thankful for?

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
