My Army son Benjamin and his little daughter Anya. Is this adorable or what? Thank you Ashley, sorry I stole it from your facebook page:)
It's hot today. After that long long winter, it's lovely, but...okay, it's just a smidgen too hot. There, I did it. I complained about the heat.
My ear hurts today, and my teeth and face ache again, sinus trouble. I just feel like diving into bed and staying there. I read an entire book today, between schooling Jon and doing laundry and cleaning up. (The other day I heard one of my friends, when asked to do something, say to, "ask Della, she does NOTHING.") I thought of this today while I read my book:) But. This is one day of down time after a VERY busy weekend, which followed a VERY busy week, in which I did shopping for the church soccer tournament grill....four times. In the evenings, I worked a baseball game, brought the kids to soccer practice, did food prep on Friday night...phew. Honestly, I was a little offended when I heard her say that Della Does Nothing. I wanted to jump up and straighten her out. She knows I homeschool, but she must have forgotten. She perhaps doesn't know how much other stuff I do. But seriously, it doesn't matter. I KNOW what matters is how I take it. Being offended...really? Is that worth it? It is written, "when giving, don't let your right hand know what your left hand is doing, that your giving may be in secret..."(Matt. 6:3) When I go blaring about what I do, and start demanding on others to do more too, I lose all my heavenly treasures. Seeking honor is worse than not doing anything in the first place. I am writing this to encourage myself:)
Anyway. I am having a Down Day, and that's all right. As long as I don't include ice cream in it, I'll be fine.
Yesterday morning I found myself here with 8 kids, so I made them breakfast. Sausage and waffles, which looked so yummy. But I behaved and made myself some scrambled eggs and Ezekial toast (made with sprouted grains). I brought home pizza the other night, and had one slice. I don't really like eating any, but was glad that I resisted after the one slice. I know everyone isn't afflicted with the I Want More thing, but it is the thorn in my side.
And....the first school bus is here, off I go to sort out drama and hear about some girls' day.
