All is quiet here this morning. I was up early with Alfred as he got ready for his last day of drill this weekend. I made him coffee and cranked the car so it would be warm for him when he left. He'll be home for lunch around 11am.
The girls had two newly-made friends stay the night. They had a blast as was obvious with all the squeals and giggles we heard. I'm glad they had a good time and have friends to play with.
The weather was so lovely yesterday! It grew to be quite warm which was surprising to me. I got sun on my face and arms as I sat out on the front porch soaking in the sun's golden warmth.
I spend a good amount of time in my kitchen cooking and baking. Last night we had fried flounder and homemade mac and cheese. I made a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for dessert. I have tried a few new recipes lately to add some variety to our meals. It's so easy to get stuck in a food rut. The girls like to help in the kitchen, too, when they aren't playing in the great outdoors.
I have missed a few days of my morning time....I need to get back to it. I like to read my Bible then write out my prayers in a journal. Usually, the Lord will bring a Scripture or two to mind that is fitting for whatever issues I have prayed about and I write those down as well.
I love being home with my family going about my daily tasks with their comfort in mind, praying as I work. Life right now is calm, peaceful, and blessed.
