Minutes – August 18, 2014

::thankful – for my baby sister, Twyla!  This week is her Birthday!!!

::praying for – all the things.

::fun – Well, Let’s See.  What fun things happened last week?  Princess Pea popped in for a surprise visit!!  Actually, she was in town to greet her Sweetie who returned from his job training at Goldman Sachs in the Big Apple.  She stopped by my office for a little while to visit.  I love it when my big kids come home for a visit!

::delicious – Yesterday I was feeling particularly perky, so I made a Costco trip and spent the afternoon packing up several dozen meals for the freezer, something I haven’t done since my cancer diagnoses last fall. (We were abundantly blessed by friends and family who kept our freezer stocked while I was in treatment!)  I’ve been doing this for years – prepping multiple entrees and keeping them on hand has made getting dinner on the table so much easier after long days at work, school and other activities.  It has become exponentially easier since the kids all learned how to cook.  With everything assembled and ready to go, whoever gets home first starts cooking dinner!

::this week – The boys are back in school.  DirtBike is all excited about taking a Physics class. The Architect is loving the prestige of being a Senior, and is still working on plans for taking over the school during his term as Student Body President. There’s a dentist appointment on the calendar, as well as hair cuts and fetching school supplies and books that were not listed on the school website before classes started.

::captured – Yes…that’s The Architect.2014.08.18 (2)

Superstar!  Keep the Faith.

One thought on “Minutes – August 18, 2014

  1. I would love some of your favorite freezer meals. I told the older girls this weekend we were going to spend some time in the kitchen prepping some meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. I cannot wrap my mind yet around our upcoming schedules and having food prepped is one less thing to have spinning around my mind. I’m also asking because Bernadette told me yesterday she wants to go to your house because your meal plans always look so good!
