hello wednesday ♥
for those who wanted the craft table plans
i put them on the ♥ make page...up in the navigation tabs
they are simple, handwritten plans :)
we might be crazy, but we're no professional plan makers
(maybe someday i will type them up in an official document)
(but who knows when that would be...)
(and i didn't want to make you wait till -who knows when that would be :)
(plus i'd rather make stuff)
(for my problem with parenthesis...see here)
(and check out my new pics too! while you're there)
got all that? :)
i really do love spring...
even though we have funky weather in upstate NY
pretty aren't they?
well they didn't look like this when they arrived home yesterday
when Paige pulled them out of her backpack
(Paige is 9)
girls...lemme tell ya what she brings home...
snails (in baggies) (yes, snails) (yes, in her backpack), wild onions, rocks of any kind,
nasty-germ infested slime in a container that she's probably traded some very nice toy for...
she never ceases to amaze me with the wonders that survive the bus ride home
" guess what i have?! "
immediately put me in a -karate chop/aim for the garbage- stance
these little purple pretties came out of the black hole of wonder lookin' like limp noodles
" i picked these for you mommy, in the field at school "
" when did you pick them? "
" at lunch "
it was now going on 3:40
i told her i would put them in water and we'd wait to see what would happen
shame on my doubt...i was positive 3 hours, plus a 30 minute bus ride home
had done these guys in
i was wrong
so often we miss the lessons from His creation that mirror the daily struggles in our own lives...after all, it's His creation, He made it...there is so much to learn from it
on the days when life's got you beat up feelin' like you've been stuffed in a backpack all day parched & motion sick from a bus ride home...
go to the Water
here's a peek at my kitchen windowsill
it's one of my favorite places in the house
(maybe cause i spend so much time there doin' dishes)
it's my little "thinking place"
often home to a couple of 3x5 cards ...with stuff i want to remember or think on
our church has been doing a series on the family
last week pointed out what i already know but so very much needed to hear again
the needs of a husband & wife and how they are so different
over time things dull...i forget...then God reminds me that i need to remember :)
i found the little ledge/shelf thingy at Goodwill
i just painted it white, now it's home to anything i don't forget to water
(hubby secretly keeps things alive for me...
he's always asking if i watered something or other)
i'd like to show you my kitchen soon...i think you'll like it :)
