5/25/10 Home Keeper's Journal

Just in case you've not heard of the Christian Homekeeper Network, it is a site where fellow Christian ladies give practical and everyday advice concerning living a Christian life.  The Network includes blogs from mothers around the country, journaling their particular journey through life.  One of the features offered is the Home Keeper's Journal, in which several prompts are given to get you going and then you finish in your own words.  Even if you've never blogged or written much before, this could be the start of your introspective journey.  Check it out:  http://www.christianhomekeeper.org/.  Oh, and I will be "guest" writing on this site in the near future.  I'll let you know when. 

What’s cooking in my kitchen this week is …… a mish-mash of culinary delights provided by my freezer and pantry shelves. I vow not to grocery shop until I use up duplicates of items in the pantry that are non-essential and can see the bottom of the freezer! Or at least until we’re out of ice cream.

The one thing that needs to be done the around here the most is …… mow, but the lawnmower battery is dead, and I’m not in the mood to go buy a new one. I think I’ll take a nap instead.

If someone went through my trash, they’d think …… now what was I looking for? This looks like everyone else’s trash.

A memory of mine that involves the smell of vanilla ……. my mom used to make cakes for people when I was a kid and she would always have to shave the tops off the cakes to make them lay flat against the cake board. I would eat the excess and always looked forward to it when the house smelled like cakes baking.

My mind keeps on wandering back to ……. My friend, Sherry, who lost her job last night, and all the people’s lives that she touched and the expanding heartache that has been set into motion by this single event.

I need God’s grace to  ….. just let some things go!

Something that I am anticipating is ……a big crop of tomatoes this year. They seem to be growing bigger by the minute!
