Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
Randomness from the last week.....

1. Junk mail. You know what I'm talking about. Normally I just pile it up and toss it. However this particular day one piece caught my eye. FREE. When you're a thrifter (its a word, I just made it one) you notice these things. What came next shocked me. Free Cremation. Seriously? SERIOUSLY people? Who does that? Shocker. Yes. I tossed it. Weirdness.

2. Silas and Zahra are official bike riders. Silas the two wheel variety and Zahra with training wheels. Very cute. I should have taken pictures. Mom fail.

3. I miss fall in the NW. You know, hay rides, cool weather, pumpkin patches, and apple cider. I'm working to create fall in my house despite the sun outside.

4. It has been cooler here in FL this last weekend. Having my windows open makes me happy, it also makes my house seem cleaner.

5. I did finger curls in Zahra's hair this week. I love it. I want to keep it like that every day. I'll admit it made me happy when a beautiful black mama commented on her hair do in Target. No shame.

6. Some sweet friends are getting married next month, I had the honor of doing their engagement pictures awhile ago. This past weekend was the first shower for precious Amberly, its been so fun to watch their courtship and we can't wait to celebrate with them in November.

7. School lunches are horrible. They affect children's behavior and alter their love for good food. Silas is all about them and wants a "hot lunch" every day. He even told someone that was his favorite thing about school because mom never made him "hot lunch". Yes son, you're right, I didn't feed you sodium filled slimey spahgetti, corn dogs, or pizza every day. That is correct. Today he's having an organic homemade lunch and he's going to love it. I love you Silas. So much I'll make your lunch.

8. I started fitness boot camp today. I'll know every muscle that exists in my body by tomorrow. This I'm sure of.

9. I'm working on some fun posts coming up and I'm super excited about them!

10. I'll leave you with this verse. It's meant a lot to me this past week and also kind of kicked my butt. It's well known but often its moments of weakness or struggle that verses pop out at me. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

Happy Monday All!!

I like this MONDAY idea. I am finding I have less and less time to blog but really do enjoy it. Have a great week!

Love that verse! Oh, and I'm so with you on school lunches. My kiddo is super-picky and wouldn't touch a hot lunch ever, but one day I inquired with the lunch lady about a particular food to see if it was offered. The response was, "oh, not here. Maybe at the high school, but we don't make food, we just keep it warm." Lovely.
