Homemaker Happenings | April 7, 2023

Good morning, friends! Ah, what a beautiful day it is. I’m so thankful to the Lord for giving us this morning.

Over the past few days I’ve really enjoyed typing out my thoughts and sharing with you. Sometimes the well seems like its run dry, and sometimes I just want to share so much. There are definitely seasons to this blogging journey.

Above all, I’d like to encourage you to not give up hope. There are so many blessings to be had in homemaking if we embrace them.

Yesterday I had a little headache, which was strange for me. I used to have headaches all of the time, but since I started exercising regularly and eating plant based they stopped. Now if I get one, they are usually triggered by stress. I rested for a little while, and started to feel much better.

We worked through our homeschool things, and I got vegetable and rice soup in the crockpot. I decided that we would eat leftover flatbread along with it, which made dinner prep so easy!

I started to get together goodie bags for Counting the Omer. I’ve never done this before, and I’m really excited to start counting. The fifty days between Passover and Shavuot (Pentecost) represent the days in the wilderness between leaving Egypt and the giving of the law at Sinai. I bought a box of party favors from Amazon, and my children will receive a trinket each day.

At the last minute, several of us drove to the home improvement store to pick up wood for my husband’s latest project. Our new covered patio is coming together nicely. I am so grateful for this space, and I can’t wait until we begin using it!

My husband is now off of work for four days, and I’m so excited to have him home!

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today, friends.

Blessings, Nicole
