In addition to my listed goals, each week I also plan to bake bread, prepare a Sunday School lesson, make all meals and snacks, teach school to the children, do laundry, etc.

  1. I am trying to decide when to call it quits with my tomatoes, I have only gotten a few at a time all season, my cucumber fried, and my peppers are still producing, my onions died back and came back up, some in places I thought I had pulled all the onions out, they never get very big, but I have decided that is okay, they keep reproducing faster than we eat them so its all good.My goals this week are to finish up the bedroom transfer, we moved one child into her own room and moved the baby into a big bed over a week ago. Already there is less fighting and I am less stressed because baby stays in her bed and isn’t climbing out of a crib and into my bed at night.In addition I am going to try to can some peaches, we got a peach sale this week for .67lb I thought I had missed all the peaches, these are southern US peaches. This is my first year canning.I’d also like to make some progress clearing out our garage, we want to put up a Lego table out there.

I do believe my steps are ordered of the Lord, so I take comfort in I am always in the right place at the right time.But I love reading your ideas and the sweet way you plan out your family week. Blessings to you! Roxy

  7. That recipe for granola sounds super good! I want to make my own one of these days. I know you didn’t get everything done on your list last week, but how cool that you went over and above on somethings like weeding and mending.We have a pile of brush and rocks in our backyard that the previous homeowners left. I told myself a half an hour I needed to commit to cleaning it up. Turned into about an hour and a half and still working on burning this afternoon as it burns off. Sometimes, it just takes the motivation to start!

  8. What kind of roses do you want to make there are tons of how tovideos on you tube I used make some out of ribbon by folding and stiching on the bottom round and round the more times you wrapthe bigger it gets you can also put a bead in the middle. Hope that makes sense.Good luckPatti
