Yes, 42 degrees feels like spring, a regular 'ole January heat wave in upstate New York. All these weeks of staying "mostly" indoors on those days that never reached past ten degrees has taken its tole on the small ones with colds and coughs.
The sparkling lights in Chase's eyes has just returned after a six day fever and some major cuddle time with any available arms.
This is one wiped out Mama looking forward to warm barefooted spring days, drooling as I do over all the winter seed catalogs, mentally planning this year's garden.
On the homefront so much is happening beside winter colds. This Thursday we'll begin a marriage and family focus group, learning together about building a strong marriage and functional family. We're using the book Love and Respect as a loose compass, expecting God to do great things through our home as these great couples gather. If you are local, feel free to stop by. E-mail us at cultivatinghome (at) uticasystems (dot) com for directions.
My handsome, hard working, awesome husband is scheming starting a manly version of cultivating home to minister God's truth to the men out there reading this admittedly feminine blog. I've been accused of using flowery language and losing readers with posts on sewing and cooking. Umm... ahem... I am a woman. (Smile.)
I can promise that there will be some sort of political, fix-it, parenting, hunting, sarcasm, religion and whit going on. No flowery prose. So all you menfolk can look forward to that. Sean is taking suggestions for a blog name. Any suggestions? Hint, hint - leave one in the comment section!
Have a great afternoon. I'm go to try to sneak in a quick nap.
