Hello! I spent the afternoon whipping up a batch of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. They turned out well and are very tasty and my children are begging for more, but they have to wait until after dinner. :)
Dinner tonight will be hamburger patties, mashed potatoes, and pork and beans. I like to season the hamburger meat with a little salt, pepper, and garlic salt before cooking. I like the flavor it adds.
After homeschool today, I did needed home chores: several loads of laundry, vacuumed the living room, cleaned the master bathroom, and I tidied up the kitchen. Then, I babysat my nephew while my sister went to get her haircut. We were able to visit a bit afterwards as we waited for a thunderstorm to pass.
This morning, I was reading in Proverbs 21 and verse 19 stood out. It says: "It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman." I am afraid I have too often been contentious and angry, and it's in those times when I haven't been in the Word as often as I should be.
I try to have my personal Bible study/prayer time after my husband leaves for work, but before my children awaken. Then, I leave my Bible open on my desk or on the kitchen table to snatch a Word in here and there throughout the day.
Well, I better run so I can finish getting dinner on the table. Goodnight, friends!
