Quiet Morning

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.

Happy Sunday!

I too like quiet time in the morning before the hustle & bustle of life comes bounding in. I have my coffee and read some scriptures from a list specifically for Lent. I too have missed my quiet time the last couple of mornings. I will resume tomorrow before my teenager gets ready for school. I will pray God's protection for her as she goes out into the daily world, because it can get pretty rough out there.

It finally feels like Spring has arrived. I noticed lots of buds this morning on our Azalea bushes. Yeah!
I might stop by for a piece of that carrot cake ~
Have a beautiful Sunday!!

It's time for me to change our menus up a bit as we are stuck in a rut. Your carrot cake sounds good! My daughter is going to be baking one this week for her fiance's birthday. YUM!!!
