April 7, 2016

I'm going to update this post with a current picture later, but for now, I wanted to check in! I'm back at our other house today and will be here off and on over the next who knows how long. There's work to be done around this place.

If I'm honest, a lot of it disgusts me. It's not my story to tell, so I'll spare you (and the one the story belongs to) and just tell you that for all the ick, I'm really super excited for the parts that involve digging my fingers into my garden spots. I'm also pretty eager to walk my old routes and see the familiar faces that I've missed over the last seven months. 

Aside from cleaning, working in the yard, doing a lot of driving, and praying my heart out, I'm currently...

Making: The next edition of Journey Together. It's going to be late this month, but I'll get it finished and I'll be sure to let you know when I do!  

Wishlisting: A good pair of boots. Spring is the time of year when I don't like wearing socks or tights with my flats like I do in the winter, but then it's also way too cold for sandals. I think boots will keep my feet warm and my socks covered. If it's not boots, then I'm looking for some kind of shoe that will get the job done. What do you wear on your feet when the weather is chilly and damp?  

Cleaning: EVERYTHING. I wanted to leave The Queen's Cottage spic-and-span and I did. I've just finished a deep clean on the bathroom at this house. Next up is bleaching the kitchen sink. 

Posting: things that I think will encourage, inspire, and delight you guys. I'm focusing on my facebook page, so you can expect to hear more about that at some point. In the meantime, have you liked it yet? 

Tasting: Well, I just got over being sick. Soooo, I'm kind of in the mood for everything. Tonight we're having my Grandma's spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread and caesar salad. This 
weekend, I'll probably give into my chocolate chip cookie craving and bake a batch of my favorites.

I'm linking up with Jenna and Anne and I'll be back with a picture eventually! Have a great day, friends! And remember....Every cloud has a silver lining. The sun is shining even when you can't see it. And God's best is the best. 

Happy Wednesday!

What are you up to?  


  1. Mmm tonight's dinner sounds lovely!

    Sorry to hear about the ick, but I am glad that you are having good moments at the Queen's cottage!

  2. Oh no, I hope you will feel better soon!!

  3. I'm late, but I hope you're all better now. Moving back home? That sounds like an adventure.

  4. I have pink ankle boots that got me through Ohio springs. They aren't warm enough for snow, nor are they waterproof, but they're great for chilly spring weather! Of course, now I live in Georgia, where my pink boots are good all winter long.


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
