Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ 11/12


In my life this week…It was a good week. Normal, nothing out of the ordinary, which is always a nice thing.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…This week should be a good family week. Paul has three days off, which happens sometimes with his hours. It’s not always nice on the paycheck, but it’s a blessing to be able to spend more time together. We plan on going on a coffee date with a gift card I received from a friend. Plus I have a mom’s night out later this week. I always look forward to those times.

My favorite thing this past week was…Hmmm, no one thing has stood out to me. I think probably the time I got to spend working on my crafts this week was my favorite thing.

Things I’m working on…Christmas presents, cards and maybe a new crochet project. I finally finished the afghan I was crocheting, so I need a new project to start on. I might start on making some place mats.

I’m cooking…Let’s see, this week I’ve made cauliflower soup, pasta bake, dirty rice, mac & cheese and hot dogs and fries. I’m hoping to try a couple of different GF bread recipes this week too.

I’m grateful for…The many blessings in our lives. Sometimes I forget them when all I see are the things I don’t have. When that happens, I try to change my focus on all the blessings I do have. 🙂

I’m praying for…A friend who is going through some serious marriage issues.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share (silly, serious or both!)…This is the afghan I just finished. It’s not the best picture, I had to take it at night, but it’s the first one I’ve finished in quite a long time, so I’m quite excited about that. 🙂

  1. What a beautiful afghan! And it’s so nice to have that extra time with your hubby. 🙂 Fernando was laid off, and had surgery (!), but is starting a new job and will ease into it very slowly. So, he’s home a lot which like you said is not good on the paycheck but it really has been nice to share my ordinary days with him. Enjoy your time together!

  2. Beautiful afghan! I hope that you enjoy your coffee date. My husband and I have been purposing to bring dating times back into our marriage. We missed the special moments of our early years and before children…hehe!

  3. What a lot of work that afgan was! But it will be warm and cozy, for sure.

    Simple weeks are the best, aren’t they? Ours has been kind of crazy, but I hope that will change next week.

    Focusing on the good things God gives us always makes such a huge difference. I really agree with you. Have you read 1000 Gifts? It’s wonderful!

    Have a great weekend!
