The Weather is ….
It’s going to be a very wet week here …. However I will welcome the cooler temps!

As I look out the window….
It’s cloudy and dreary…. The rain will soon begin… however it’s been so dry here this summer…
I am sure the ground will gladly receive every drop that falls gladly.

What’s on my plate….
Toast , yogurt, and a cup of coffee in my new favorite cup…..

On my bedside table….
My Bible, devotional, inhaler, and my water bottle…

On my reading pile …
I decided to reread One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voscamp, when I noticed I was struggling a bit ….
Also I have been reading The Way Of Abundance by Ann Voscamp! I have really enjoyed it so much,
I hate to see it end.

Movies and shows…..
We watched Mary Shelley tonight it was amazing! I truly loved it…
.Another great movie we watched this weekend was Brain on Fire
I don’t really have a series at the moment….

On the menu….
Monday Manwhich and tater tots
Tuesday Caribbean Jerk Chicken and rice
Wednesday Pasta Bake and salad
Thursday Breakfast
Friday Pork Chops, green beans , and roasted potatoes
The weekend is undecided

To Do List
Write this blog post and at least one more this week
Pack for a week out of town for revival
Tidy the house before trip
Gather calendar dates for church and post new children’s workers schedule
Make sure London our puppy has all she needs when her sitter comes to stay with her.

Happening this week….
Today I have a trip planned to American Girl with one of my sweet princesses from church.
We will be having a birthday lunch in the bistro. She is so excited.
We have a really busy week this week. I see a new lung specialist on Thursday.
We are trying to understand why I still have to sleep setting straight up…. 
I will be preparing for us to go out of town for revival that my hubby will be preaching.
I need to get all this done before Friday….
I have a benlysta infusion on Friday and it tends to wipe me out for several days.

Looking around the house….
Overall it’s not bad at all … We did a deep clean last week and it’s really just a matter of some light
cleaning and maintaining it….

In the craft basket…
I have been doing some light sewing again! I have really enjoyed it. I don’t think I realized how much 
I had missed it till I began again. I really need to begin working on Christmas presents.

made this and two more for my a little girl at churches Birthday last week.

What am I wearing ….
A soft denim flowy peasant top and khaki leggings

From the camera...
these are some center pieces i have been working on...

One of my simple pleasures….
Taking care of my home…. When you lose what used to be your very normal life…. 
You find a new normalcy… I enjoy the things I haven’t lost… I love to take care of my family.

Favorite Bible Verse, devotion, or quote…..
Both of these has spoken deeply to my heart recently...
On my prayer list…..
My daughter Christian… I am pretty sure she has bronchitis, we will be adding a doctors visit to our
list of things to do.
For my hubby as he prepares for revival. We pray that lives will be changed.
