Life is moving right along here at The Farmhouse! Ron is finishing his seventh week of IV antibiotics. For five of those weeks, we have been administering them at home, three times per day. Add to that two to three medical appointments per week. Add to that trying (unsuccessfully) to keep up with the business of educating my ninth grader. (We'll be hitting the books hard when life is "normal" again!) Add to that Christmas shopping (very little so far) and wrapping (what is that?). Okay, I'll stop there. But you can see why I am scarce here in Blogland.
This could be us...
Because I missed our Annual Mother/Daughter Christmas Shopping Trip this year, my sister Linda came one day last week and joined Mom, Bekah, and me for a local outing. We ate lunch together and then hit the mall, and I was back in time for 4:00 meds!
Also last week, my niece hosted a delightful luncheon for the ladies in our family. We ate scrumptious food, sang Christmas carols, and celebrated the new baby who is coming in January! I'll share more about that later this week.
We enjoyed a rather quiet weekend. We finished decorating the house for Christmas. (Oh wait. We didn't finish. We haven't put the candles in the windows. Or a bow on the front door wreath. Almost...)
We took a little Sunday afternoon drive and managed to find some coffee.
And we did a little cooking. For Sunday evening supper, Ron and I made Smoky Sausage and Grits Casserole, a recipe that he had seen in the December issue of Southern Living magazine. I am not a fan of grits, but I loved this casserole!
|(We halved the recipe for the four of us.)|
I am still musing and still learning from this walk through illness and restoration, so I may continue to share some thoughts. I also plan to retroactively "Gather the Moments" of October and November, although I will probably backdate them. I really want them there for my own benefit, to take notice remember what the Lord has done. There is lots of catching up to do.
One day at a time...
