On my to do list:::

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Starting a Tabbard for my husband, including a patch on the front with all these intricate designs.  I'm kind of overwhelmed but he's entrusted me to do it and I'm up for the challenge :)
Also making some soap bar bags to give away on the blog, more on that on another post later today :)

In Homeschooling:::
Doing more gardening for home life.  Jasmine has a research report to finish, also French lessons.  Nicholas has a robotics video to watch and we're catching up on work from last week when he wasn't feeling well.  Busy day in the school room.

Looking around the house:::
The sound of the fish tank is lulling me back to sleep, I'm thankful for my coffee right now.  I have a lit candle in front of me, the scent of Lavender is permeating the air.  The two pugs are asleep on the couch, my kitchen tables has odds and ends that I've picked up from here and there, need to get it all put away and cleaned up.  My Kindle Fire is open next to me with my Bible reading for today.

From the camera:::

It's that time of year again, Renaissance Festival is in town and we went for opening day.  It was so much fun as usual and I got a ton of pictures :)


Something fun to share:::
If you are like me and have always dreamed of living in a small cabin, you simply must go and take a look at this post.   A family of four living in a small 500 square foot cabin :)

On my prayer list:::
Many friends and family who are needing the Lord's guidance right now.

Bible verse, Devotional::: 
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Looks like you have some great weather! I love that Bible verse. That's one of my moms favorites. She actually painted a painting based off of it. It's beautiful!

Have a great week :)

Great post, as always! Herbs Gone Wild sounds interesting. You grow your own herbs, right? Maybe you could do a post about that, or at least give me some pointers... I want to learn how to grow an indoor herb garden for in my new kitchen! :)

LOVE the cabin! Looks like if we were to ever visit your area it would be February. It's the time of year I long for 70 degree days.

Herbs Gone Wild...I love the title. I'm going to look it up. Looks like one I would love.

I am really enjoying the Bible reading plans on my Kindle Fire!! Have a great day.

Heather said...

You always have the best pictures.

Julie said...

I too am jealous of your weather. I love snow and cold temps Nov- Jan. but come mid Feb. I'm ready to get back outside! Have a great week!

When I was younger I wanted to live in an old school bus. Everyone said there wouldn't be enough room. The cabin helps prove there's plenty of room.

I can't believe your weather!!
