My kids have been on Spring Break this week, and while we had a very good time, my husband informed me that I have the day off today!
Which means I can catch up on a couple of projects and get ready for Sissy's birthday without being responsible for feeding, entertaining, and changing diapers.
Here is a collage of inspiration for the week...

On another note, I make steamed broccoli about once a week, and was getting rather tired of it. I tried this cold broccoli salad for Easter and I highly recommend it. My kids were munching on it like little rabbits:)
- Large head of broccoli
- 10 slices of bacon, cooked crisp
- 5 green onions
- 1/2 cup of raisins
- 1 cup mayo
- 2 tsp. vinegar
- 1/4 cup sugar
Lastly, I actually read this back in December but picked it up from the library again. It is not a Christian based parenting book, but it has to be one of my favorites ever.
“If you are raising children in these anxious times, you need this book. It will inspire you, reassure you, and, most important of all, it will remind you that less is more, that simplicity trumps complication, that rhythm and routine bring peace to the soul. In this profound and practical guide, Kim John Payne offers parents a doable, step-by-step approach to simplifying everyday family life, from the toy box to the dinner table. In the process, he reveals to us the rewards to be found in slowing down, savoring our children’s childhoods, and more fully enjoying our own adult lives.”—Katrina Kenison, author of Mitten Strings for God
Here is wishing you a wonderful weekend.
