Monday....Meal Planning, Mowing, and Schooling

Dear Sweet Readers,

Today has been a wonderful day.  Peace has filled my soul and home. I am so happy to have my children back at home with me.  Today was my husband's off day.  I went ahead and got up and had my daily quiet time.....oh...was it so delightful. I will admit when my alarm went off I cringed a bit. Smiles. I layed there and debated for about 10 minutes, but my post yesterday challenged me to get up and have that precious time with my Lord.

In my quiet time I read Psalm 11, Ephesians 2:8-10 (memory work), and then read some devotional. I also read a chapter in, "A Excellent Wife", and I prayed. I enjoyed listening to Fernando Oretgo music at this time. It was so refreshing.

We had a little school today to get back into Homeschool since we are adjusting to them returning home.  It was very good. I got to work with kids individually with little interruptions so that was nice. They both did well.

I cleaned my husbands car, and did laundry, blessed the home with a quick spruce.
Tonight we are going to have BBQ Burgers and Beans.

I am working on our Menu Plan for the week. I have been trying to collect frugal simple meals so I am still in process.

First I checked what I already have and planned from that.

Boil and then simmer!

Today my husband cranked out the tractor for our mowing.....we have 6 acres to mow this summer. We started it today for the first time. The weather has been divine and I am so thankful for the fresh breeze blowing through our abode.

Blessings today my friends.
