Phone pictures and Ramblings

I haven’t felt like writing lately. The urge comes and goes. I’ve also had a break from taking photos, which is ok with me. In fact, the break will most likely continue with the arrival of our baby. That’s life. Ebbs and flows, things changing.

This was my project on Saturday. I’ve been putting it off, and thought I best get crackin’ 🙂 I don’t enjoy painting, so I felt a sense of accomplishment when I was done. Only about 5 more doors to go on this big farmhouse.

After…20160420_185905This was my afternoon snack today. Well, the more healthy one 🙂 This baby makes me hungry!20160420_154714I’ve been sitting more than I usually do today, because of strong Braxton Hicks that don’t want to leave. So it’s extra calcium, and trying to stay off my feet a bit, per my midwife’s instructions. This baby wants to keep it interesting 🙂 My discomfort seems mild though, when I think of the young mother from church who is battling cancer, and dealing with pain. Life just seems so unfair at times, but God sees the bigger picture. And I’m so thankful we can give our worries and troubles to Him!

A Saturday night at home..20160416_184351I always treasure a break from cooking.

Jenna made sure Zoey didn’t go hungry 🙂20160416_190504Our supper from last night. I love grilling weather!20160419_181054Devan was home from school this week. Bronchitis, fever, and some throwing up. On this picture, he was feeling a bit better. Apparently, their Daddy’s phone was pretty interesting 🙂20160418_121819This morning a warm little body crawled into my bed, and snuggled up tight, wrapping her fingers in my hair. She loves her snuggles with me yet, and often gives my belly kisses (for the baby) 🙂 I sure do treasure those times, because her strong will and independence sure can be frustrating! This was a night that she told her brother she can feed the calves. So he gladly left her. The mom had to explain to him that she is not responsible enough to know who gets what. I may have to keep an eye on this chore handing off thing 🙂20160418_161508Today their was milk spilled over big sister’s dress right before it was time to leave for school. As well as all over the floor. There was wash to do, and toys to pick up, and dishes to wash. There was fighting, and back talk. And bad attitudes. From the Mom and children. A pretty normal day. I need more gratefulness in my heart for the mundane.

Should I be worried that my son has OCD? This was done of his own free will 🙂20160418_175413He’s definitely got some crazy organization skills 🙂

That’s a wrap, folks. Have a great rest of the week! And if you have the awesome springlike weather we’ve been having, soak up that goodness 🙂

  1. So thankful all is well with you and your family, Jo! It was wonderful to see a post from you today. It won’t be long until little Jenna can kiss the little one, in person! I know you must be getting very anxious for that moment! 🙂 God bless you all.

  2. You did a fantastic job on those doors! Did you have to take the smaller one off of its hinges? We grilled twice last week and I forgot how much I love it. It makes cooking so easy. The picture of Jenna and Zoey is my favorite.

  3. Thanks so much, Monica! Actually it’s 1 big door, and the hinges were off, but they are not working hinges, just for a better look 🙂 Have a great day, my friend!
