This should make my family happy. P.S. - I'm not sure what the deal is with the lantern battery. My husband placed it there several days ago, & it hasn't gone away yet. It probably won't unless I make it go away.
The mess waiting for me when I'm done writing this post. :(
Actually, I should clarify that I don't buy a ton of processed snacks (i.e. - cookies, cakes, etc.) because I know home-made tastes better anyway! But, on occassion there's such a good deal (and I shop at a discount store already, so the deals are sometimes awesome!) that I can't pass it up. In an effort to continue to be more conscious about what we eat...and to hopefully save some money at the grocery store, I need to get back into the swing of making my own.
The rain also makes me think about what my kiddos will do with themselves when they get home. Would you like to see what has been keeping them occupied over the last couple weeks?
There used to be one hole in a corner of our backyard for digging. After this particular day there were 3 holes. And, my boys had started carrying buckets of water down to create mud pits. By the time I realized what they were up to they were already covered in mud. So, I figured I should at least document the moment with pictures.
By the way, he wasn't wearing boots here. These are his school shoes completely encrusted in mud.
I wanted him to turn around so I could get a picture of how muddy his bottom was. This was how he thought he should pose.
So, after that particular day (and that huge mess of clothes & shoes I had to clean), mud making is off limits. But, they've still been digging in the dirt.
No go today since it's raining.
On another note, rainy days make me think about reading. And, I'm craving a good book. I've been getting Christian fiction from the library lately. But, can I be honest? I am really frustrated with Christian fiction. The writing just usually isn't as good. Many times the characters are annoying and the storylines unappealing. I hate to sound harsh. It's just how I've been feeling.
So, can you help me out? I need some book recommendations. I'm open to both Christian and secular suggestions....as long as I'll come away from the story uplifted and encouraged in some way.
Hope you have a great day! And, enjoy your weather, what ever it may be.
