If I could, I think I would be happy living inside a library. Just imagine being surrounded by stacks and stacks of books of all genres, on every side, and inhaling the scent of book pages. That probably sounds a bit weird to say out loud, but I have a feeling many of you will understand what I'm saying and even nod in agreement.
Something else I've been trying to focus more on, is cooking and baking. With all the running around, I feel like I haven't been cooking as much as I would like to.
So I've been in the kitchen more, trying new recipes and hoping to kick start my interest back in sharing recipes on the food blog. Not just because I love sharing with you all, but even for myself, I love having a bunch of different recipes for myself and for my children to look back on when they're out on their own.
The picture above is from an Instant Pot Caramel Pudding I made, that turned out delicious. It's so easy to make and so quick too. I will share the recipe sometime this week, and if not, then this weekend it will be on the food blog.
We are also down to the crunch with Nick's school, and in just a little over a month, my baby boy will be graduating High School. That will be it for me, no more babies at home. He is also turning 18 this Sunday, so there's that as well. Good grief time flies.
Jasmine is doing brilliantly in her new job. She has already been promoted and made it to the top 10 reps in the country. Wow!!!
We are so proud of her and her accomplishments.
Curt is also doing extremely well with his college courses. His new classes just started 3 weeks ago and he is really enjoying his courses. He is taking Evangelism and something else, I can't remember now what it is.
Elliott is being his usual adorable naughty kitten. He is so good for the most part, and then every few weeks he has a day or two of craziness. Has to be up high on all my furniture, kitchen cupboards, bathroom window etc. Zips around like a tornado, jumps on people, chases the dog, and so on. Life with a cat right?
As for me, I am just taking care of everyone and the home, trying to keep it together, praying, reading my Bible, homeschooling and driving people to appointments, while still plodding along with the whole perimenopause journey.
That's basically what has been happening around here. I hope you are all doing well, and thank you again for always checking on me and praying for our family and pets. It means so much.
I'll be back tomorrow to show you the latest books on the shelf and anything else that I manage to do and take pictures of, around here.
