Looking forward to this week:
Doing NOTHING, just relaxing and taking it easy, letting my body heal and slow down after the grueling move.

Tips and Tricks:
For wood laminate floors, do NOT use cleaners, they will streak and ruin the finish.  A simple solution of warm water and vinegar does an excellent job.  It's what I'm using on my wood laminate floors in this house.

My favorite blog post this week:
No blog reading, didn't have time to.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Our Wee Farm - What a great blog, love the photos though I have to say that if you do pop on over, the very first photo in the latest post may make you wonder if I've lost my mind sending you over there LOL   Just ignore that first photo LOL

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):


Lesson learned the past few days:

That just because something worked a few years ago doesn't mean it will now.  Things change, people change and I shouldn't fight it, I should just embrace what is to come.  Over the past 2 or 3 years I have really started feeling that my body is changing, that I'm getting older and that there are pains in places I didn't know exist....and I've been fighting it and getting really frustrated and sad in a way.  I've decided to stop, I've decided to embrace what every day brings me, to accept that I'm not who I used to be 10 years ago, or even 2 years ago and there's nothing wrong with getting older because no matter what my body may say or do on the inside, it's my spirit that counts.

On my mind:
So many things and I don't know how to put it all into words, it's just a jumble right now.  I can say that it's a mixture of the normal day to day business and a few new things thrown in

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

“We live by faith, not by sight.”
-2 Corinthians 5:7
Sometimes God asks us to believe when there’s no evidence that we should, except for His steadfast faithfulness. Walk by faith and not by sight. He will never lead you astray and what He has in store for you and those in your sphere of influence is far beyond what you could conjure up yourself.
