Here it is Thursday!

Sorry I haven't been posting so much! Truth of the matter I have been so busy these last couple of weeks! Going nonstop..... It seems to always be something! I spent the entire day today cleaning! Do you ever go on a spree and just NEED to do it! That is how I felt when I woke up! I dusted, cleaned the walls, did the floors, cleaned to ceiling fans, the fridge, washed all of the downstairs curtains!! Seriously you name it I did it!!! It feels so good to sit in a nice cleaning smelling house!! Hopefully it will stay that way for a few days!!

The weather her in Texas is finally kinda Autumn-ish!!! It is suppose to get into the low 30's overnight although it will warm back up to the 60's in the afternoon! I love opening the windows during the day and just letting the breeze flow through the house!

I have been working on some much needed prim projects around here.... I have learned to antique stuff..... Definantly my favorite hobby these days! I finished a shelf that I bought at a garage sale and some wood stuff I found at the Goodwill! now only to get my camera to cooperate so I can share pics! My next project is to master tea/coffee staining stuff :) I also am hoping to grunge some candles this weekend!!! Im having Jason print me some patterns that Leslie shared in her Stitchery how to post; and Im gonna attempt to stitch a few this weekend :)

Devin has an early doctor's appt with his new doctor who will manage his ADHD. Im a very nervous for some reason..... Although I know this is a GREAT change for him none the less..... I still worry! Isn't that what Momma's are suppose to do! Depending on timing I may suprise him and take him to the movies!!! I definantly know that WE (him and I) need to spend more one on one time together and going to the movies is definantly a treat for us! Saturday he has an early game so we will all be off to that bright and early!

Not much else on the homefront!! I cooked some yummy beef stew this evening (my grandpa's receipe) made Jason some cornbread and a buttered pecan cake~ two of his favorite things! Im definantly getting more into this homemaker stuff! I definantly want to be a Proverbs wife and mother!

Proverbs 31: 10-31
10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.
16 She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
29 "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. 31 Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Im off to put the leftovers away! Hope you are each having a blessed evening!

I don't know why, but I am always so much more relaxed when my house is nice and clean- just wish it would stay that way!
I always like surprising my kids with things like shopping trips or trips to the movies- the surprise makes it even more fun!

Cathy,

There really is nothing like sitting in a freshly cleaned house...and mine needs it! lol! I have worked on my bedroom some...but more rooms need to be seriously tackled before the Christmas decor comes out!

Have fun with trying the grunging thing! I sure did enjoy stitching my first stitchery and ready to do more! It's fun trying new things!

Have a great weekend!
