The weekly update
What a morning - I have been busy tweaking my study and the rest of the house, moving bits and pieces from one room to another (and sometimes back to where they came from) plus tossing things out that I no longer want (bin or to charity). My son has just come over and I gave him a few things for his house that I no longer wanted - its good to have someone to pass things onto! Have I got things "just right", probably not - decorating seems to be an on-going task in my house as I change my mind!!
In between the work inside the house, I was able to plant 24 snow pea seedlings and 16 English spinach seedlings in my veggie garden bed. Unfortunately the nursery didn't have any kale so I will need to pick that up during the week (probably Thursday). Other news from garden - I am very happy that the bulbs I planted a few months a go are all popping out of the ground and will flower in late August/early September.
How was your week? Mine was busy, I plan to make sure that next week to much quieter and more relaxed when I get home after work. This coming week my son and his wife are off on a mini honeymoon break to celebrate 1 year of marriage - they are spending three nights in alpine region where it will be very cold.
Only one recipe to share with you this week - this is a fabulous carrot cake recipe, its very moist and very yummy. I made a slight modification - I added sultanas and walnuts to my recipe.http://livejoy-fully.com/2013/07/16/the-ultimate-carrot-cake/
To a little bit of trivia, I was very pleased to hear the news that Jane Austen will be on the British ten pound note from 2017, replacing Charles Darwin (becoming extinct!). I wonder what she would think about being on money of all things!
I usually tell you about the book I plan to read in the coming week - can't do that this week as I am in between books so to speak and yet to decide on this weeks book!! That is something I plan to do in a few moments when I grab a cup of tea and some of that yummy carrot cake. What are you reading?
And which of you by worrying can
add one cubit to his stature?
Luke 12:25 NKJV
Not a single problem can be solved through worry - all it does is take the enjoyment out of each precious day. Leave the worries to the Lord as He knows what to do with each one of them. Your week ahead will be so much better when there are no worries cluttering up each day.
