Day 33: Saturday, February 2, 2013
Slept in late. Made whole wheat pancakes with coconut milk instead of regular milk, cooked using coconut oil instead of butter for brunch with Bryan. He whipped up some scrambled eggs and maple sausage patties, and I made a fruit salad to top the pancakes: pineapple, blackberries, apples, pears, oranges, and kiwi. We ended up eating around 11AM, so that kept us full until dinnertime. Ran some errands, and went to a book exchange party!
We finally installed a new faucet for our kitchen sink (it’s needed replaced since the day we moved in…four and a half years, a Lowe’s Christmas gift card, and a little muscle work later, we finally have a faucet with a working handle!). Next project: replace the kitchen cabinet hardware so it matches the new faucet! (Maybe that will happen by the time we reach our tenth anniversary! LOL) While Bryan worked on the faucet (and I kept out of his way), I filed my looming stack of paperwork and trashed the junk mail that had been piling up. (I have a new goal of filing for 5 minutes every night after this last batch.)
Day 34: Sunday, February 3, 2013
Good service this morning, followed by our 2nd grade Journey Group lesson about “God is Patient.” Kind of ironic topic, since the kids seemed to be trying our patience a bit, but I’ve always said I think the teachers learn more from Sunday School than the kids anyway, and He is definitely not finished with us yet. Had lunch at Bryan’s folks’ house, as we celebrated our nephew David’s 1st birthday! Cannot believe he is already one and walking everywhere! So cute! And he’s dairy-free too, so Julie made a delicious dairy-free chocolate cake that I had to ask for the recipe! Had some good conversations about the Gospel with Bryan on our drives out and back home. And finished the night by watching a few Super Bowl commercials. Overall, a very good day of rest, worship, and family fellowship!
