52 lists {15} - favorite meals

List #15 - List your favorite meals


I had really wanted to get some recipes shared for my daughters and use this list to link them, but alas, life is far too busy, my house has piles of things I'm going through, and then the crazy stomach flu hit.  Meals were kind of on the back burner this week, as chicken noodle soup, and popsicles were the only thing the girls kept down.

Favorite Meals around our home include:
  • holiday meals - love Thanksgiving!
  • spaghetti with homemade sauce
  • BBQ - kabobs, veggies, hamburgers
  • tacos
  • breakfast for dinner
  • soups and salads
  • crockpot meals
  • BLT & avocado sandwich

Eating out:  I have a favorite Japanese Tepanyaki restaurant that I love!  Texas Roadhouse - steak!  Panda Express - Beijing beef & noodles -- and I'm not a fan of fast food.   Panda and El Pollo Loco and In-N-Our Burger are probably the only places I would choose to eat at.  My family calls me super picky and I think the older I get, the worse I get.

I hope that you will join me!

Little Bits About Me - April


Hello April

 . . . you were beautiful and allowed me to open up many doors and windows, but you played a cruel start by striking my youngest with the stomach bug.  Instead of dressing up for church and a sunrise service, I spent the day doing laundry, disinfecting everything, diffusing essential oils, and praying for my little one's constant whimpers.  I'm praying that today brings health restored and energies renewed.  I'm just weary and slept on the couch to be near my sickie.

I rejoice in His risen gift - His loved traded for my sins - humbled.  I'm embracing His new mercies this morning!  Great is His faithfulness!



 1.  What 3 colors remind you most of Spring?  Yellows, peachy-orange, and pinks.

 2.  What is the first thing you add to your wardrobe in Spring?  Flip-flops! 

 3.  What is the first wardrobe item you ditch in Spring?  I'd say long sleeves, but I still layer usually with a sweater.

 4.  Who mows the grass where you live?  My husband tractors the grass and our goats will graze on some also.

 5.  What's Spring like where you live?  It's like all 4 seasons each day!  We often still get snow in the Spring, so our mornings are icy cold.  Then it will warm up throughout the day and the blossoms will start enjoying the sunshine.  As evening rolls around, the crisp, cool air of autumn offers a beautiful breeze.

 6.  What is your favorite thing about Spring?  I know my LEAST favorite thing is the time change - I think it's still haunting me as I type this, but my favorite part is a culmination of -- homeschool winding down, more field trips, picnics, opening up doors and windows, and just overall beauty of new things blooming.

 7.  Are you a Spring Cleaner?  I'm an all-year-round cleaner, but I do think I get more done in the Spring.

 8.  Are you a Baseball fan?  Not really a fan per se, but if I had to go and sit through a sporting event, baseball would be better than most.

 9.  Tulips or Daffodils?  I love the surprise of daffodils popping up every year, but I think I'd prefer a handful of cut tulips on my table.

10.  Favorite Outdoor Spring Activity?  Going on picnics, wading in waves of the ocean before the crowds of summer, and outdoor BBQ dinners.

11.  Flowers in the garden or in pots?  I love both, but the ones in pots seem to live longer for me.

12.  Favorite bird.  I have fond memories of hummingbirds.  I remember them at my great grandmother's house and loved finding their nests and seeing their small eggs.

13.  Car wash or wash vehicles at home?  We have a monthly car wash pass that uses recycled water and is overall better for us.  It allows us to get our car washed as often as needed and includes interior cleaning, too.

14.  When do you pull out your sandals?  Despite it still being cold, I've already pulled them out. I have super tender feet and much prefer fuzzy socks to any kind of shoe, but flip-flops are second in line - easy to put on, protect the bottom of my feet and don't give me a restricted type of feeling.

52 lists {12} - the things that feel like home

List #12 - List the things that feel like Home


It's not where you live, but HOW you live!

This list hits so close to my heart.

God didn't promise me a manicured lawn, a rose garden, a housekeeper, or even a choice of where I live.  Instead He promised to meet my needs, even when I didn't know what they were.    I had a complicated need that had to be met first.  I had to be out of the unbearable painful pressure building inside my head. Nothing else mattered but to find a way to function.  To lie down and sleep instead of pacing the floors alone at night in pain.  To eat without the nausea from pressures inside my head causing the uncertainty lightheaded and off balance feelings.  To be at home without the repeated hour long trips to the Emergency Room for treatment.  He met our needs.

Being back home for 2 years is surreal.  I am not sure that I can put into words the feelings that are still swirling around inside of me.

  • family
  • my husband coming home to me every day after work
  • candles
  • words of inspiration around me
  • the smell of a home cooked meal
  • wood burning
  • the sound and smell of rain
  • a snow covered landscape
  • wild flowers on the table
  • sounds of home - washer and dryer, dogs barking, horses stomping their buckets
  • my bed made
  • essential oils diffusing
  • books on the shelves 
  • clothes drying on the clothesline

I hope that you will join me!
