April Twentieth

Work went pretty good yesterday… It’s always better when I just follow the day instead of trying to control it…

A coworker brought some strawberries to share…

IMG_0043

So hubby made strawberry pancakes this morning… strawberry in the batter and on top…

IMG_0044

With some blackberries too…

IMG_0042

Son3 doesn’t like strawberries so he made a banana man on waffles… see the eyes, nose, smile, arms and legs…

IMG_0039

This is what the boys do while I’m at work on Friday night… Nerf gun battles… poor Taz was  target practice…

IMG_0038

New blinds in son3’s room, I forgot to take a picture when hubby first got them… no more beach towels hanging up…

IMG_0035

Maple hanging out in the tree house… I think she likes to sleep in the chair that’s in the tree house…

IMG_0036

Today hubby and I worked in the backyard… trimming roses, vines, trees… raking… watering…

We went for a walk around the orchard…

My boss was back from vacation today and called to see if I or the other lead was working tomorrow to set the ad… she’s going in as she needs a day off later in the week…

We made pizza for dinner… and we are now caught up with Chicago Fire… We’ll have to wait for the next episode to come on…

Hubby and I have Castle and Hawaii Five O…

And another day off tomorrow… I did not even make a dent in the list of all the things I wanted to get done this weekend…

Son2 wants to go to the plant nursery tomorrow… I’ve been promising him…

The boys are sleeping in the family room tonight to watch Pok√©mon…

And I almost forgot, hubby got a call as I was leaving to go to work yesterday for an interview on Tuesday with Food Maxx, the place where he filled out the paper application…

Nothing new… just work and work… today I will be going to work…

But I am off this weekend…

Did you know that TV’s are like cars, every year all new models come out… at work we have been resetting the department to make room for the 2013 TV’s… out with the 2012 TV’s

We are expecting an audit at work at any moment or not… maybe next week…

Son3 is having his last annual school carnival tonight… they had dress up all week: Pajama day, Inside out/Backwards day, Sports jersey day, Crazy hair/hat day, School shirt day…

IMG_0002 (2)

Leftovers for dinner still and lots of Chicago Fire… almost done with season one…

No word from hubby’s interview… he continues to apply at others…

Going to straighten up, go through my work papers and get ready for work so I can get home and start my weekend off…

"Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins." -1 Peter 4:8

You are set apart by God for a special purpose. (Romans 12:2)

We can change. By the grace of God, we can begin making right choices and developing new habits that will bring us the life we desire.

Nobody is in charge of your happiness except you.

Some of the habits you need to break or make will be easier than others, but there will surely be some that will require great discipline and self-control. Don’t be afraid of pain, but remember the old adage, “No pain, no gain.”
Any time something is hard, say to yourself, “I am making progress.”

Develop a support system to help you remember the new habit you are developing. Put up signs where you will see them often. Depend on the Holy Spirit to remind you when you get off track. Ask a friend or family member to remind you if you’re reverting to old ways.

Today, Linda, we believe God wants you to know that ...

you always have a choice.

No one can direct your actions but yourself. Don’t give that power to anybody else. Remember, even when it seems like you’re on a one-way road, you can still choose the other direction.

Pictures today are the roses bushes in my backyard…

I still need to share the pictures of our hike to the waterfall at Lewis Creek…

To see more pictures visit my photo blog: Not Just Roses… I posted a lot of pictures there today…

IMG_0020IMG_0021

Yesterday I got to work early to do my scans and counts… We are getting a surprise storewide audit any day now and my list of things to do just kept getting longer yesterday… I ended up working a half hour overtime again as I kept getting called for one issue after another…

IMG_0022IMG_0023

I came home a bit grumpy and took hubby on a walk around the orchard…

IMG_0024IMG_0025

I made popcorn chicken, veggies and pork & beans for dinner…

We watched The Simpsons, Family Guy and Chicago Fire…

IMG_0028IMG_0037

Today we were up early…

Hubby got the boys to school and college…

We had muffins and hot chocolate for breakfast when he got back…

IMG_0038IMG_0046

We went to Big Lots to get hubby’s shampoo and Walmart for some groceries and Oil of Olay…

Came home and had lunch, watched Joyce Meyer and fell asleep and we took a nap with Maple for about a half hour…

Son3 came home and finished homework in five minutes so he could go play at his friend’s house…

Hubby picked up son2 from college…

I did five loads of laundry, cleared the kitchen island, put away the laundry, watered the plants and make more popcorn chicken, veggies and beans for dinner…

IMG_0047IMG_0051

We watched How I Met Your Mother, Two Broke Girls, Mike & Molly and now Chicago Fire…

Now time to get the boys ready for bed, hubby and I are going to watch Bones and tomorrow back to work…

Develop the habit of acknowledging God in all your ways and then He will direct your steps (Proverbs 3:6)

Faith begins when we say, “I trust You, God.” (Psalm 31:14)

Pray about everything and fear nothing.

Nothing in all the world can separate you from the love of God which is found in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:35-39)

Take a firm grasp on God’s sovereignty and trust His love even when you don’t understand His purpose. –Joyce

God will help us get where we are going, but He can’t drive a parked car. -Joyce, "Making Good Habits, Breaking Bad Habits"

Make a decision before you start that you’re not going to give up—God will never give up on you!

 

God is with you today and always.

Today, Linda, we believe God wants you to know that ...

you can take a break from working so hard.

April Thirteenth and Fourteenth

 

IMG_0052IMG_0053

Friday I adjusted my attitude on the way to work… seems every song on my KLOVE radio station was aimed at me… It was a nice quiet evening and I even got a few things done…

IMG_0054IMG_0055

Saturday morning I got quite a few things done at work, all in electronics though… After lunch I had plans to get things done in hardware… However after lunch I got the manager on duty phone and had it all the way til I went home, so I got nothing done in hardware…

IMG_0056IMG_0057

Hubby spent four hours with son3 on Saturday cleaning his room… They cleaned out all the toys, boxing some for Goodwill and boxing some to save in the garage… They took out two plastic drawer towers to bring to the Goodwill too, they were cracking and getting hard to open and close the drawers… They moved his bed around too… Now it is more like an almost teen’s room… Son3 will be in middle school come fall… Hubby took the pictures…

IMG_0058IMG_0059

We had pizza and leftovers for dinner… We watched more Chicago Fire… Son1 and DIL stopped by to see their Easter basket… They visited for a bit and then went off to dinner…

IMG_0060IMG_0061

This morning I was at work early to set the ad… Had help today… Today I was in a good mood… Took most of the day to put up all the signs but I even got to play in hardware and put out merchandise… I even had the manager on duty phone but it was much quieter today then yesterday… Yesterday that thing didn’t even stop ringing...

When I got home, hubby and I went for a walk around the orchard… I got in over 20,000 steps today between work and the walk…

Hubby made breakfast for dinner and now we are watching more Chicago Fire… It’s so good… It’s funny and sad and intense and funny…

Tomorrow I’m back at work early again to do my scans and counts…

Now I’m thinking some ice cream and more Chicago Fire…

You are a new creation. You don't have to allow the old things that happened to you continue to affect your new life in Christ.

Walking in love should be the number one goal of every Christian.

Your Future Has No Room For Your Past!

He is the author of all true success and everything that is good, and without Him we can do nothing of true value. -Joyce, "Making Good Habits, Breaking Bad Habits"

Learn to run to God in times of stress instead of to the habit you normally turn to. Jesus simply says, “Come unto me.” -Joyce, "Making Good Habits, Breaking Bad Habits"

When God brings an “unwelcome disturbance” into our lives, He never asks if it is convenient. The Lord expects to be trusted. –Joyce

If you don't learn to control your thoughts, you will never learn how to control you behavior. -Joyce, "Making Good Habits, Breaking Bad Habits"

Your worst day with Jesus will still be better than your best day was without Him.

God is with you today and always.

 

True friends don't try to control you—they help you be what God wants you to be.

Today, Linda, we believe God wants you to know that ...

when an impossible must happen, put it on God's to-do list.

Well, if you can't make it happen, and no one else can, there is only thing left to do, - finally look up and trust in God to make it right.

Logo3

Today, Linda, we believe God wants you to know that ...

what we need is to love without effort.

Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. Real love is simple, everyday kind of thing. A smile, a hug, an encouragement. Continuous love without effort.
