Recap (2016.01.09)

In my spirit:

  • Working on memorizing Ephesians 1:15-23 – and having it inspire me to prayer and worship
  • Practicing confession, more frequently than I’d prefer as I’ve often found myself frustrated with and short towards Tirzah Mae

In the living room:

  • Packing, packing, packing. I don’t have enough boxes for our books so I’m planning to do that part in stages.
  • How is it possible that I can wash three loads of dishes daily and still have messy kitchen at the end of the day?

In the kitchen:

  • Putting meals on the table, but nothing spectacular.
  • I didn’t grow up eating cinnamon rolls with chili, but I know others did – and I felt like rolls on Monday so chili became my excuse.

In the nursery:

  • Tirzah Mae’s new thing is waking up at night and wanting to stay awake. I’m so thankful this hadn’t been or experience in the first year.
  • I think my breastmilk volume might be decreasing – sometimes it seems like Tirzah Mae will nurse and nurse and nurse some more; and, when I finally get tired and offer her a water cup instead, she gulps it down.

In the craft room:

  • No crafts these days – see “packing”

In the garden:

  • Still dormant for the winter – I’ll be moving my raised bed out to Prairie Elms soon, and I’m contemplating whether to move my compost too.

At Prairie Elms:

  • We do a final walk-through at the beginning of next week – it’s starting to look DONE!
  • We’ll close on our mortgage (to pay off the construction loan) Friday – and them we’re ready to start moving in!

    How exciting about the new house! Though the transition will make everything unsettled for a bit, it will be so nice when everything’s set up in the new place.

    I had not heard of cinnamon rolls with chili. We usually have corn muffins with it.
