Christmas things are put away, and we're in that 'in-between' stage where there's no holidays for another month, so no real 'theme' to decorate with or inspire us.
Of course, inspiration comes from life itself, and not any man made holiday. And God certainly gives us plenty to rejoice over every day. Here's a few of mine:
- Dh is still healthy and working. He did have a couple days in hospital last December, for what they're really not certain. Stomach issues, is all we can say.
- We are saving money after depleting our savings last year, woohoo!
- Have paid the credit card almost halfway down. Winner!
- We have a plan to continue the savings on a weekly basis, with acquiring a second car as our goal later this year.
Homeschool continues on apace. Slightly behind, as the boy and I have our days and nights turned around. The pitfalls of working around dh's shiftwork!
Drake has gone 'hunting' with his daddy a couple times. Our back yard, down near the pond, is host to numerous does and a few bucks, per our game camera. Alas, none for the freezer this year. The neighbor's dog may have had something to do with that (to Dh's temper).
Signed the boy up for Baseball. It is the first of three sports he plays during the year, although we intend to add swimming lessons this summer, after a scare last year. And, it's just time.
I am addicted to tablesetting! Not really the all out, fancy dishes and glasses setups, I don't have but a couple sets of dishes, and one of them isn't enough for our large table. Just a pretty cloth (I now have 7, and want a yellow one to round out the group), with cute placemats (too many sets to count...12?) and contrasting napkins in various colors. Add a centerpiece and done. A good, everyday table that is cute and fun to 'play with'. Must stay away from Ebay, however....lol. See 'saving money' above. :D
Hope things are going well for all of you!
