What have you been up to lately?
My weekends are very special so I make the most of every minute - but that doesn't mean I work madly for 2 days, far from it as much of the housework has been done during the week. Its time for all those enjoyable activities that I don't have time to do during the week.
I had morning tea with my son and his future wife and her mother, I had dinner out with my dear husband, gardening (almost finished the extension to the vegetable garden), sewing, cooking, shopping (I needed to find a pashmina) and even found time to sit in the sun and read. To me this is a perfect way to spend the weekend.
|I thought I would do some simple sewing projects in the afternoon - Ruby was quick to help. I had to get cross with her as she kept on playing with my pin mouse (the little mouse I stick pins in)!!|
|Whilst I had the sewing machine out I thought I would make a heat-pack (perfect on a cold winters night in bed) which I filled with barley and some lavender (to make them smell nice when heated in the microwave).|
|I bought this for my husband as he loves dogs. He kindly put a hook by the front door for all to see when they enter our house!! Isn't it so cute.|
|On Sunday evening my husband served up this - he cooked me a slow cook lamb shank dish for dinner. How perfect to end the weekend with a meal prepared by ones husband.|
And for something funny - to any parent with a teenage child.
This sums up my 19 year old son's bedroom and his fathers view of it!!
Prayer to my brother and his wife for this Wednesday as they attend the funeral of my sister-in-laws father. In my prayers. May the Lord provide the strength that you will need.
Happy 8th birthday to a sweet little girl for the 25th of July.
May everyone have a lovely week ahead - no matter what the bumps in the road may be, the Lord is always with you.
