Blessings this Week: 02.19.2016

Counting my blessings, naming them one by one.

A sure sign of warmer-ish weather- we've got icicles!

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

One morning, as I went to take the dog out, I saw birds. Little brown birds. I didn't know I'd been missing them until there they were, flitting around. 

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Bear and I took a walk through the pasture and happened upon some pretty big raccoon tracks. 

Sorry about the terrible picture- it was dusk, and I was taking a photo with one hand while the dog jumped around on the leash in the other hand. He thought it would be a great idea to find that darn raccoon! 

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Sloshy, slushy puddles, and the warm weather that brought them. I didn't even have to wear my second coat this week!
...   ...   ...   ...   ...

The warmer weather also brought out the wildlife in force- the deer are out and about. 

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Fancy coffee creamer. Need I say more?

...   ...   ...   ...   ...

Gorgeous sunsets and this big photobombing dog...

Try again...

has been one huge whirlwind. I actually had to pull up the blog to see what I'd written this week. It's been that crazy.

Just in case your week has been as nuts as mine...

It's Lent. And that means that people are giving stuff up, taking up practices, cleaning out their closets... and I'm beginning a lenten study through Leviticus.

Yes, Leviticus. Don't get all squicky about that. Leviticus can look like a book full of impossible and weird rules, but really, there's more to it. Leviticus teaches us that from the beginning, God came to us.

Is it truly terrible that I write a post about meal planning on the very same week that we had frozen pizza for supper two nights in a row? Maybe. But do I know I've got to get my stuff together and get going on meal planning? Yep.

If you're in the same place (no judgement) this post is about how I use my planner to help me meal plan

Have a wonderful week- count those blessings!

  1. I love seeing little animal paw prints in the snow or dirt... it is so nice to just go slow and really SEE all the things around me outdoors. <3

    My week has been crazy, not many updates on the blog. Thanks for this post. It reminds me to count my blessings despite the craziness. God is good!
