I haven't been around much, lately because we've been a little busy. Busy with things like a yard sale, spend-the-night company, catching up with old friends and even making some new ones! Busy with church obligations, running a household on my own, a baby with tonsillitis and even a little shopping! I've felt quite overwhelmed at times... but thankfully, only for brief moments. Today was wonderful, and I even took a nap with my kiddos.

My awesome mother did some "deep cleaning" for me as well as a few other little household chores... and even took everything out of my china cabinet and washed it, dusted the insides and cleaned the whole thing till it sparkled. I've been admiring it all day. I just loooove it when things are "really" clean and not just "surface" clean. She also helped me pick out my beautiful new rug- I was quite thankful for her input!

Little Andrew enjoyed some lasso lessons with his Papa, and got to see his daddy over the webcam (the highlight of his day... week... year??)
Miss Anna Kate has had tonsillitis, but is so much better now. She did concern all of us, though, when she had 104 temp. We had the hardest time trying to break her fever.

All of that is past now, and I'm very much looking forward to a new week with a nice clean slate. No sickness, no stress, no worries, no tears. Just nice, clean pages on the calendar... waiting for the story of life to be written. How exciting.

**** Photo of my new rug. I am just lovin' it.

Happy Sunday and
Much Love,

Oh, you do sound busy- but glad today was good. That high fever doesn't sound fun at all...those are the times it's hard being a mommy. But how nice your mom came over to help and that Andrew got to see his daddy on webcam! Hope this week brings lots relaxation and health for your little family!

And the rug is gorgeous! :D

Glad your little one is feeling better. Hope you have a nice, non eventful fun week.

The rug is beautiful! Great choice.

Your rug is just beautiful!

And I'm glad your kiddo is feeling better....104, whew, that had to be a little scary!

Love the rug! Hugs to all, and a big kiss to little Anna Kate for feeling so poorly.

Praying for you. I love you and am daily lifting you up. I keep Andy in my prayers, too. Just let your soul be still and please know your worth isn't measured in the refection you see in the china cabinet. I miss you.

So glad that the baby is feeling better. What a treat to have your china cabinet all cleaned out and sparkling. Like you said, nothing like having things "really" clean! I love your new rug.

Glad to hear you took a nap, too. Do that whenever you can.
