I love it when friends quote me to me. ::snort:: I'm so glad Deja reminded me of my mottoes...."big rocks" and "do the next thing". THAT has helped me tremendously in the past week.
We did all the normal stuff today....school, speech, driving kids here and there.....I uploaded a google order form for our United Co-op. I was proud of figuring out how to add lines and formula. ::snort:: I registered Emma and I for workshops at the upcoming PWOCI Conference. It was so early that I don't remember what *I* registered for. There were tons of wonderful options.
Wednesday I read this little verse, "The lazy man does not roast his game but the diligent man prizes his possessions." Prov. 12:27. I got to considering that eating out when I have a full pantry is similar to being too lazy to roast my game. I determined to get this area of our lives back under control. I didn't order produce last week so that we could use up what was stored around here. (We're out of lettuce.) We've been studying the sluggard this week. I don't think I'm really a sluggard...I certainly don't spend my days in bed as some of the Proverbs suggested....but I realized that I need to be sure the BIG rocks are getting done FIRST.
To that end I baked 12 loaves of bread this weekend.
Nolan helped me this afternoon with apples.
It was tough to keep Stacia from eating them.
I turned 7 lbs of hamburger/turkey into meatballs. We ate some sort of saucy meatballs for dinner (which means I COOKED.) I have lots of bags of meatballs in the freezer for future meals. I put them in quart instead of gallon bags now that the older 4 are rarely home for dinner.
Stacia really likes to "help" and chat with me while I work in the kitchen. YES. Here she is asking, repeatedly, "What kind of cookies are these?"
