On a routine...somewhat.

It's 5 am here and I am up. So far I've cooked breakfast (pancakes and eggs) and both me and the man have eaten. He's left for work and now I am here. After checking my mail I'll jump on the elliptical before I turn on the heater (its 36 degrees out) to warm up the house before the kids get up. After being able to sleep in for so long, it just doesn't seem right to be up at 4:30am cooking! I'm sure I'll get used to it...soon I hope.
After I "work out" I'll cozy up next to the fire and read from the good word!...Best part of my day. I hope you all have a great morning.

What we've been up too..

We've been busy lately.

We have been reading......Daddy has all the good books.

And flying.
And shopping. I just love the carts that seat two!
And cleaning.
This is the closet under the stairs. It was full of sewing things. I took them all out to make room for a small "stock pile". Now that we have over 150lbs. flour, 10 gallons of oil, and way too much other stuff to list. I am feeling pretty good. God is so good! He has provided so well for our little family, especially considering the times. That little closet is now full and still growing as I keep moving food from the garage into it.
