Little Wife On the Prairie

When you are everything to everyone, well, you had better act like you have it all together.

Thank you very much 30.

First, I just have to ask, has anyone else ever gotten dizzy while taking the Christmas lights off of the tree? Oh yeah, I did! I mean seriously! I just walked around the tree a few times to unwind the lights. It wasn't like I'd been drinking. You know what happened? I turned 30... and then I turned into my mother. She can't even turn a corner with out getting sick. Oh well. Just another one of those things I have to thank 30 for.

So no dinner tonight. We got busy ate a late lunch and had to be to Torah study. So we had cereal and fruit. However last night we had a wonderful Sabbath (Shabbat) meal with some friends. She made a roast with potatoes and carrots with challah bread. She also made 2 pies. One was buttermilk and the other was eggnog! I brought a salad made with dark greens, tomatoes, mushrooms, green onion and kalamata olives and some homegrown black-eyed peas from Marsha Smith in the old hood! It was a great way to start the Sabbath.

My baby girl made me so proud today. She really followed through with her conviction to help animals. She called the local shelter to ask what they needed. Then she took the list and her own Christmas money to purchase those things. Then she was able to go take them to the shelter herself. She has such a servants heart. I can't wait to see how God uses these gifts he has given her.

So one last thing,

Sorry, I just had to.

such a sweet girl! I'm glad you're able to stay home and help nurture those special talents in here daily! On another note....30 sucks. It brought me an extra 5 pounds out of nowhere, wrinkles on my forehead, and the inability to jump down off my kitchen counter without extreme pain in my feet!! LOL..I feel your pain!

I really enjoyed reading your blog. I am so happy that you have been blessed with staying home and home schooling your kiddos. It isn't an easy job I am sure and you seem to do it with such grace. I will keep reading as promised! Take care!

Grandmolly!!!!!!!!!!!! hahahahahaah that made me LOL! And yes she does. She has a very tender heart.

Beth, thank you for the sweet words. But I am not sure I do much anything with grace. It's more like with 2 left feet!

Molly, I KNOW!!!!!!! Matt and I always are amazed that it hurts just to get out of bed. haahha. BTW I think wrinkles are cute! They make one look wise (and maybe a little old but you can't be wise and young!)
