Stepped out of my car this afternoon and almost stepped on this guy...in my garage....ick!!!! I am sure you are thinking "really, Sara, it is so tiny"...but it doesn't matter the size...I don't like snakes!!!
Fried pork chops for dinner tonight with mashed potatoes, grave and peas. Jared was not too thrilled with the peas, but they were the only vegetable I had in the house....I think I need to go to the grocery store!!!
Yesterday was my neice's birthday. So Alyssa and I drove down to Arkadelphia, picked her up and took her to Hot Springs for lunch! We had a GREAT time....even if we did get a bit lost on the way back! :)
Thursday nights is our night with Alyssa. We have a scheduled night for her to come to dinner (and she does her laundry) She has been so swamped with grad school, it was great to see her. And I made her favorite meal....stir fry!
I was gone ALL day today. We started our church bible study, Esther and then I had to run errands. I had a 2 hour meeting at the school at 1:00 and then had more errands to run...ugh. Jared had plans tonight so Steve and I went out for Sushi. I had a coupon so we got to try some Sushi rolls that were a little pricier....oh.my.word....they were amazing!!!
If you saw my post yesterday, I saw and pinned a picture of a Thankful Tree. Today, I made my own for my foyer and I LOVE it!!! As we head toward Thanksgiving, my family and those who visit my house can add the things they are thankful for! I can't wait to see what it looks like in November!!
Well, Labor Day didn't turn out as I had planned....
We woke up to Kayley and Janeal throwing up with a stomach virus...ugh. Kayley spent most of the day right here....poor thing was so sick.
The other kids enjoyed another round of Settlers.
I enjoyed watching the US Open in between caring for the girls and getting the food ready for the BBQ.....I think I was too busy to realize that I was getting sick too.
Steve manned the grill and made these awesome wings that I found on Foodgawker. Go here for the recipe!!!
The stomach bug hit me hard in the early evening and Steve had to take over caring for everyone and getting the house all picked up after the boys left. The girls were still too sick to leave for college.
I am a woman in mid-life who loves the Lord and her family!! I am the mom of 3 absolutely amazing kids (23, 21, 19) who make my life happy, crazy, busy.....perfect! I am also a pastor's wife. I try to live each day looking for where God is working so that I can join him there.
I am attempting to take one photograph each day of this next year. My hope is to be able to slow down and see the small things, become a better photographer and to be reminded of the many blessings God sends my way!
