Weekend Happenings and Honey Do List

I am looking so forward to this weekend. It has been a stressful week for me personally. I have found out a lot about myself this week. I found that I am more emotional than I realized. I am not cut out for business, and quite frankly I don't even want to be oriented in that direction. I LIKE being a wife, mother, and homemaker. The highlight of my week was spending a few hours one morning rearranging dishes on my hutch for a fall display. (Am I boring or what)???!!!

Our son will play his last football game of the season tonight. I will be on guard in prayer for a safe event for him. I have enjoyed once again watching him play football, and I would like to end the season on a good note.

We are planning a laid back weekend with little priorities on anything. I am sure Michael will find his way back into his shop throughout the weekend. I too love being down there with him especially on cool evenings. It is such a peaceful place, and I love to see how things are created. I usually sit and watch him create and listen to his heart. He shares much from his heart when he has a piece of wood in his hands. It is truly one of the treasures in my life. I can connect with my husband while drinking a cup of hot coffee and watch my children "play"/work in the shop.

I am planning a family dinner for tomorrow of Grilled Pork Tenderloin, Hashbrown Casserole, and Jacob's Salad. I am sure there will be a hot loaf of bread to go with that too. I am not so sure about a dessert, but we will see what my hands find to get into tomorrow!!

grace and peace,

Tracy,
Thanks so much for sharing your blog address with me. I had so much fun visiting your blog and viewing your photographs. Your roses were beautiful in your last garden. I have tried to grow roses, but I have never had any success with them. I want to learn how to grow these beautiful flowers. Please share some of your garden tips on rose gardening when you get a chance!! Thanks for stopping by our little corner of the web. It is nice to know that we can communicate and watch each other's farms grow even though we live in different countries! I think that is fantastic.
grace and peace,
julie
