I got up early this morning, as I typically do (I am a morning person by nature). I love the peace and quiet of the morning. My hubby was already up and working on plans for remodeling the kitchen in a rental we have. We enjoyed a cup of coffee together and then he went back to work on his plans and I moved on to my responsibilities.
As I was sitting here in my living room getting ready to write this post I was looking out my 3 large living room windows at the dark and thinking of Proverbs 31:15, “She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household, and a portion for her maidservants.”. Aside from getting breakfast going for the family, today is a grocery shopping day for me. I smiled at that verse, yep, time to provide food for the household!
My youngest son Isaac who is 13 just finished his Saxon Algebra ½ book on Monday. Everyone gave him a round of applause for his diligent good work! Now it’s time to move onto the Algebra 1 book after he takes a math break for a few days. Today he is going to go into town with me and assist with the grocery shopping. Often on grocery shopping days I will call up one of my older daughters and see if she wants to meet up in town for a little visit at Starbucks. It is always a fun way to start the day and often whichever daughter it is will go shopping with me so we have extended visit time, plus I enjoy seeing the grandkids and having them tag along as well.
By the time it started to get light out I could see the mountains out my windows. Well through a cloudy mist. It is one of those typical gray, misty, wet days here in the Pacific Northwest.
Hope you have a great day on your homestead …
