Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for the warmer temperatures we had today.  It's been below freezing with wind chills in the -temps lately.

I'm thankful for my wonderful husband who loves me, spoils me, but loves God even more.  I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have a husband that follows the Lord instead of drinking and using drugs!
I'm thankful for internet friends.  It's so nice to have Christian women to talk to and ask for advice from.  

I'm thankful for the study we are doing at Christain Homekeepers. learning of God's Grace.

Homekeeper’s Journal ~ 2/8/11

This week’s Homekeeper’s Journal is a Hodgepodge of Thoughts and Ideas!
In My Kitchen this week ………Two batches of brownies, homemade pizza, and chili.
Foremost in my thoughts this week …… my family.  My biological children, parents, and siblings live 1-2 hours south and I miss them terribly!  My oldest (step) daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids live in Arizona, and I've yet to met them face to face. *sigh*  Sometimes I wonder if it will happen at all.  Next (step)daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids live in Dallas.  Just saw them Thanksgiving, but miss them so.  The babies are growing so quickly!
I’ve been so busy with ……..working.  I'm thankful to have a job, especially in this day and age, and in our small town, but I need something less stressful and less physical.
Could someone please ……..point me in the direction of a car that I can afford, and actually runs?  I'm about to pull my hair out with the two we have.
I’ve been wanting to do this for so long …….. See above....I want to meet Diana, Loyd, Miss M, and Mr B!!!  Please send me to Arizona!!
If I manage things just right ……..We might be able to get our bills caught up in the next two months.  Hallelujah!!

Then Sings My Soul

Homekeeper’s Journal ~ 2/2

This week’s Homekeeper’s Journal is all about crafting and creating ……….
In My Kitchen this week ……
My hubby did most of the work...he made a wonderful chocolate cake, fresh bread, and fried potatoes with eggs.  Yummy!

When I think about Crafting/Sewing/Making Things, I want to …
Run out to the craft store.  I've got to get started on a project I want to do for my Mother-In-Law.

My favorite creative outlet it ……..
Making cards.  I'm really not very good at it, but it's so much fun to put together something personal for another.

A Craft that I’d like to learn is ….
Knitting.I keep trying, but my fingers just won't cooperate!  I would love to make warm scarves, hats, and blankets for the grandkids!
One Craft that I can do but don’t do much is ….
Scrapbooking.  Too expensive for my budget right now.
An unusual Craft that I can do or would like to do is ….
Nothing really comes to mind right now

Another Craft that I secretly long to do but don’t right now is ….
Candle and soap making

The Craft/Creative Work that I have no desire whatsoever to do ……
