Last week when my husband was away I took the opportunity to make a few meals that I like, but he doesn't. On Tuesday night I made my dear friend Heather's Sweet and Sour Chicken. It was soooooooooo good. Divine, actually. :) After dinner I asked our son (age 7) if he liked it.

"YES!!!! I wish there was more!" (Ahhhh, a boy after my own heart!)

I asked our daughter (age 4) if she liked it.

"NO! It was disgusting!"

Now perhaps I shouldn't have laughed. But I did. She had sat at the table, ate a bit and hadn't said a word about how it tasted, so I guess I can be glad that she was polite at that time, at least.

And really, I did ask! :)

I'm all alone......

My husband is gone this week. I am reminded AGAIN of how much I need him and how much I depend on him. I am also reminded of how my schedule is based on HIS schedule, and when he is gone, my schedule is gone. Ugh. Don't like that. I am really trying to stay on a modified schedule this week - and as soon as I get going on it my husband will be home. :) I am so glad. I know my husband will be home on Friday, but during this week while he is gone I am spending more time in prayer for the widows that I know. Those dear ladies whose husbands are gone from this life. Can I encourage you to do the same??

Have a great day!

Spring.....glorious spring!

Does anyone else have spring fever?????
I have it.
I have it really bad. :)
Winter seemed especially long this wasn't, it just seemed that way.
AND this year we are in our new (to us) home. We moved in last August so I didn't do any yard work or plant anything - we were too busy getting the inside livable for humans. :) Soooooo.....this year I am planning to plant a few things and just be outside!!! (The Lord blessed us with 22 acres!!!) I am not really a gardener - it is not something that I really love to do - but I am going to plant a garden this year. For economic reasons alone it makes sense! So - bring on the spring!!!! (although now that we live in the country that also means bring on the MUD.....the kids will love it! :))

Happy 'spring is coming'!!!
