- Waiting for this coffee cake to come out of the oven...this time made with 2 cups of blueberries and extra streusel.
- Looking foward to a week with fewer errands and events, more stay-at-home time, lots of reading. Let's see...we're reading Of Courage Undaunted (James Daugherty), A Tale of Two Cities (Charles Dickens), Abraham Lincoln's World (Genevieve Foster), and Pippi Longstocking (Astrid Lindgren). These are books that we're reading aloud; the girls both have other selections that they're reading for school and for pleasure. I am hoping to treat myself to a reread of a Jamie Langston Turner book this week. (If you have never read any of her books, I highly recommend them. They are not fluff. I don't have time to read fluff. But I will take time for this kind of fiction.)
- Hoping to get back into some spring cleaning. Cleaning has willingly given way to celebrations this month (Resurrection Day, Bekah's birthday, and a couple of vacation days for Ron), but I would love to accomplish a bit more on the home front before summer arrives. (Summer is normally the time to do "extras" for this family of homeschoolers, but this summer promises to be different from all others. More on that later.)
But with all of my planning and doing, I pray on this fresh April Monday that I will be sensitive to His voice. That my time will be His...and that I will redeem it. That I will be a blessing to someone this week with a word of encouragement or a listening ear or a helping hand. That I will invest in things eternal.
