I’m starting a one-day-a-week food co-op with another family this week. I will cook and deliver dinner to them one day a week, and they’ll deliver dinner to us one day a week. I made a way-too-labor-intensive meal for my first night though (tonight). I’ll be checking out blogs like A Year of Slow Cooking for some good ideas for crock pot meals.
I’m taking a break for a couple of weeks from coffee, chocolate and most dairy. I have a suspicion that my consumption of these three wonderful things is behind Faith’s tummy issues lately.
I’ve been working on putting more Scripture and family prayer into our daily life. I read a post over the weekend at Joyful Mothering that spoke a lot to me. 🙂
I’ve been agonizing this week especially over the number of catch-up phone calls and thank you notes I’m behind on. I feel like I work hard every single day and give so much to my family, and it’s frustrating to not have time to love on all of the other important people in my life who just don’t happen to be a part of my daily life…I pray that God will continue to guide me on my use of time. I have no idea if I’ve used every minute of my time this year as He wanted me to, but I’ve tried my best. Discernment of God’s will for your time is an imperfect process. At least for me.
