Norwegian Cruise Line

Outside in Kansas City~It is a beautiful autumn day and the high is predicted to be 91 degrees. I love these cool nights and warm days after the weeks of heat this summer.

I am thinking~about new beginnings. I can beat myself up about the things I had hoped to have accomplished or I can begin again TODAY. God is so faithful to assure us that his mercies are new every morning and His steadfast love never ceases.

I am thankful for~time at home. Working from home as a full-time mom allows me to spend time with all the kids, structure my day around their schedules and my husband’s, and enjoy just being at home. I enjoy folding clothes, paying bills, or reading on the deck while the baby plays on a blanket and just soaking in the beautiful weather.

In my kitchen~I have been researching saving on food costs. This will be a real challenge because I am already dealing with several children who are very picky eaters and my husband, Brent, and I both need to cut down on calories without feeling starved. I am not a short order cook; just ask anyone who has lived with me. What is prepared for the meal is what diners are expected to eat and they may be extra ready for the next meal if they refuse. I definitely need wisdom in how to meet all these needs/preferences in the best possible way.

I am wearing~jeans, pink t-shirt and pink toenail polish.

Last creative endeavor~too long ago to remember…

I am going~to go to mandatory training tonight at Missouri Baptist Children’s Home. Each year as part of our licensing requirement we attend a Medication Refresher class. In class we are taught by a Registered Nurse how to measure and dispense a variety of medications. We are typically updated on any changes in foster care requirements that are specific to medication or health care.

Can’t wait for~my January cruise on Norwegian Cruise Line’s ship “Sky” with some of my favorite ladies. We are sharing a suite with Butler and Concierge service and it is going to be a blast.

Family News~We are impatiently awaiting the birth of our newest grandchild to Nicholas and Staci. He should join the family around the middle of December. Our daughter-in-law makes a very beautiful momma to be.

Current Read~I am reading books about saving money on everyday expenses, again. See prior post.

I am hearing~the dishwasher and the quiet click of the laptop keys as I hide in the bathroom to finish this post. Too much information?

I am hoping~to wake up to find that the toilet water that leaked from an overflow in the upstairs kid’s bathroom has dried up and that the hard wired smoke alarm that it tripped, after bedtime, is not fried.

Around the house~the interior and exterior are sadly neglected due to the long hot summer, many struggling children to care for and a husband who has been fighting injury after injury for the last several months.Here’s hoping for a productive Autumn.

Simple pleasure~a few moments of reading a sweet fiction novel on my phone before passing out for the night.“Sixty Acres and a Bride”, is a retelling of the story of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz.
