Monday, Monday

What am I going to do today? Since my car is in the shop, I have big plans to accomplish a lot. Not sure if that will happen...

* We normally go to the Y on Mondays, but with no car, I set my alarm for 5:40 so I could go workout before Andy left for work. Did that happen? NO. Maybe I'll go tomorrow...

*It's 10:00 and I HAVE started the laundry. Mondays is laundry day. Yes, I only do it once a week.

*Make bread - 6 loaves.

* Recover dining chair seats. This is the 4th time I've done them since we've been married. I'm going with black foax leather this time, no more fabric. I got it all for $5! It has to be something spill proof and cleanable. I hope this will accomplish practicality and style. Look at these yucky seats! I'll show the "after" when I finish.

* Take screens off window, hose down, put away.

*Wash windows. Ha, yeah right!

*Where do my poor children fit into this? I know they'll be attempting to help me any way they can, they love to "help". Maybe we'll bundle up (it's only in the 40's here) and go for a walk.


I know this is more pictures than people care to see, but I'm doing it for the grandparents sake.=)


Time for an update. I got these pictures a couple weeks ago. We went to a state park with a big wooden playground by a lake. It was the perfect environment for happy pictures. Chloe was the most cooperative, maybe because she's the least "busy" and the most "dependent". Caden was impossible and couldn't be still a moment, he's a boy. Out of over 100 shots, there were some keepers. We have an old camera, so the quality is lacking.

I've been thinking on David lately and how he confidently poured out his heart to God. He gave him honor and praise, but he also told him his troubles and complaints. Often I subconsciously think that I can't say anything negative to God whether it's about a person or situation. For some reason I need to put on an act for Him. The Psalms are filled with David's complaints to God. Isn't it better to tell the Lord these things than anyone else? I seem to tell other's, but not the Lord. Most things we should tell only God and no one else. Afterall there is no one more accepting and trustworthy. I think the Lord wants to hear our complaints and our praise. I think He wants to hear our hearts.

"I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then you knew my path" (Ps. 142:2-3)
Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. (Ps. 62:8)
