Monday

So, it's another week. Started yesterday with a full day. I forgot it was Fellowship lunch after church yesterday so we got up late and missed Sunday school. Josh took the girls to church and I showed up about 20 minutes late with the food. I made a noodle salad by Nigella Lawson. So yummy. I would never put sweet chili sauce, peanut butter, soy sauce, noodles, spring onions, alfalfa and snow pea sprouts and red pepper together but it was wonderful. I also made the apple dumplings that you can find on The Pioneer Woman Cooks website (the link is on the right). They are made with Mountain Dew. I kept thinking of Amber and her addiction to Mt. Dew. Got lots of compliments on those. The nice thing about Fellowship Lunch Sundays is that there is no evening service so we can just relax and get ready for the rest of the week.

Today is a big day in the Bay (haha, that rhymes.) It is the Grand Opening of Big W. (think Wal-Mart, not the superstore just the regular old one). Finally Target has some competition. As excited as I am I think I will avoid going there the next couple days as I am sure the rest of Hervey Bay will be there. Just as exciting is that a new craft store, Lincraft, is opening in Maryborough today. (m'boro is half an hour away) Susan wants to go check out their fabric so we are headed there after she gets off work. And while we are down there we will probably go to the Big W there since everyone else will be at the new Big W. =)

So that's today. Tomorrow Susan is hosting a Body Shop party at my house, so that means some cleaning is in order. Which is good since Bible Study is at our house on Wednesday. Throw in swimming and date night on Thursday and youth group on Friday and that's my week. Well, add cooking, cleaning, laundry, homeschooling, etc. and you get the idea.

I was checking out some blogs this morning while the girls watched Playschool. And I came across a blog where the lady had posted the lyrics to a new Caedmon's Call song. And the lyrics really spoke to me. So I am posting them here. Hope you have a good day!!

SACRED

This house is a good mess, it's the proof of life. No way would I trade jobs, but it don't pay overtime. I'll get to the laundry, I don't know when. I'm saying a prayer tonight, 'cause tomorrow it starts again.

Could it be that everything is sacred? And all this time everything I've dreamed of has been right before my eyes.

The children are sleeping, but they're running through my mind. The sun makes them happy and the music makes them unwind. My cup runnenth over and I worry about the stain. Teach me to run to You like they run to me for every little thing.

Could it be that everything is sacred? And all this time everything I've dreamed of has been right before my eyes.

When I forget to drink from You, I can feel the banks harden. Lord, make me like a stream to feed the garden.

Wake up little sleeper. The Lord God Almighty made your mama keeper, so rise and shine. Rise and shine 'cause...

Could it be that everything is sacred? And all this time everything I've dreamed of has been right before my eyes.

Ah the good old days where drinking four Mt. Dews a day didn't add to your waste line! I miss those days. Now it's Diet Coke for my "every day soda" and Mt. Dew for only special occasions. That's as close to a diet as I can manage these days.

I enjoy reading your blog!
