Today was wonderful!

>> Monday, January 3, 2011

Even tho I over slept a bit today, we got so much done!
We had school and it went very well.
The girls, for Bible, are doing a study about Ester.
We have a book we are using plus the Bible.
I think it's going to be great - we just started it today!!  :)

After school I began completely scrubbing down my kitchen.
Through the holidays we made lots of goodies and lots of messes.  Even tho I kept a pretty good hand on things there were just little things that were making things look messy and things that just needed scrubbing!  So, I got after it!

A few days ago, I put this table cloth on my table and made the flower arrangement.  Today, I added the candles.
I think it looks warm and inviting and my husband and the girls love it.  It's a terracotta (spell?) color.  My hubby loves "orange" as he calls it.  It's *NOT* orange though!  LOL!

This counter had built up with lots of coloring sheets and little things they made through December.  Plus our homeschool things had gotten out of hand on this counter.  So, I sorted through things, threw away things and just made it back to the simple way it was!

Is this not adorable?!?!  My sweet sister in law, Kali, made this for me.  It's such a cool tile she made for us and then included the little stand.  I love it and think it is one of the coolest gifts!  She is so awesome at decorating and creating things.  I was blessed by this!
It sits beautifully on my counter top! :)

After all was done I lit this candle to give it a beautiful smell!
Boy, it did!!  Then, Madi Grace swept for me and Sarah Faith used the swiffer on the floors.  They are such awesome helpers!

So much has gotten accomplished today and it feels awesome!
I sang praises the whole time I did the kitchen and it did my heart good!  God is so awesome and so VIVID in your life if you take the time to just watch for HIS HAND in your every day life.  It's so exciting to see what He is doing.  Daily, I ask for Him to put a song in my heart for Him and I ask Him to fill me with His JOY.
........and ya know what?  He does!
One thankful, happy Mama & Daughter of the KING OF KINGS!

Isn't that a blessing to have that personalized tile!! It fits you as well. We start school back up on Wednesday...the next day is spent on making copies for upcoming lessons so I won't have to do them each day and sorting the last of the books and stuff I cleaned off of our homeschool bookshelf.

Have a blessed day tomorrow.
