I am also reading Romans with She Reads Truth. The cool things is that some of my friends wanted to join me and so we are meeting once a week for the next 7 weeks and digging into God's Word. And seriously. Romans. It's filled with so many nuggets or truth about who God is and what he has done for me! We are a week late into the study because we wanted to wait til we were all done with end of the school year crazy. I am reading week one right now and it's amazing! If you need something to get you into God's Word this summer, go check out She Reads Truth. My husband is even doing the same study through He Reads truth. . . except its all manly over there! He loves it and we get to talk about it too. It isn't too late to start.
Here's what's happening around here:
Outside my window the sun is shining. . . it's really hot. We started the week with the most beautiful below average temps. . . think 70 degrees when it should be triple digits! The triple digits are back and well. . . we like the cooler temps.
I am thinking of just how much I actually enjoy the laziness of summer. I am sleeping in, the kids are letting me. TV is being watched, not a whole lot of plans, but we are keeping relaxingly busy. Is that a thing? If not, I totally made it up. Next week, I will be sharing how we survive summer and most of you will think I am crazy.
From the kitchen It's been kind of quiet around here in the kitchen department, but I did make some delicious popsicles (be on the look out for that recipe!) and some plum goodness (Our tree went crazy this year. . . I think it was the rain!).
I am wearing yoga pants and t shirt. We are cleaning bedrooms and doing some laundry today. It's all about comfort for me and I just cannot clean or do things in regular clothes. Please tell me I'm not alone!
I am creating a clean house? ha ha! Actually, I am trying to get stuff cleaned up so I can start some projects next week!
I am going on an adventure this weekend and it means some slightly cooler temps and cool ocean breeze and hopefully a little bit of sand between my toes.
I am reading a fiction book! I've been reading a lot of non fiction lately and I have a stack of fiction that I picked up in the discard section at the library. . . working my way through that stack. Did you see the post on the book A Family Shaped by Grace? You should read that one! The book has some crazy wisdom in it and some really neat ideas. Also, if you buy your book by the end of next week, you can get a freebie video from the author! He's awesome, so you should check that out!
I am hoping that the boys get their bedroom cleaned with a lot of intervention. . . but that's wishful thinking. Right now I think a sword fight is happening instead of them working. Bleh! I wish sometimes we could just snap our fingers and be done with the hard stuff!
I am hearing kids playing instead of cleaning. . . ugh. Also the clothes in the washer just finished so I should probably start another load. Exciting things, huh?
Around the House things are getting cleaned up. The busyness of the last few weeks left this house in a bit of disarray. But, this week, we are weaving cleaning with fun and tackling part of the house each day. Tomorrow our new bathroom floor gets installed and I am so excited!
One of my favorite things is Pinterest! Seriously. This summer, our goal is to try something kid friendly from Pinterest and share it with you guys on the blog. We will share our fails, or suggestions, and the fun factor. This will start next week. . . Be on the lookout!
A few plans for the week: This week, we are cleaning, getting new bathroom floors, going back to the beach (a different one that last weekend) and taking Jon to a soccer game for Father's Day. We are grilling up some veggies for Father's Day and spending time with Jon's family. I am also reading through Romans with some sweet friends and meeting with them once a week! It's like a girls night each week. . . it might be what keeps my sanity over the next 2 months!
Now, it's your turn! Grab your coffee and let's connect! You don't have to do them all! I can't wait to hear from you! You can even private message me if you don't want to make it public.
