Do you ever wonder about how others spend their day?
I think about people in other countries and wonder what their routine is day to day. Or what their perfect day looks like.
Being home most of the time doesn't mean that I am idle or doing just the things that I have to, like cleaning and laundry. For me, it means I am doing things that I LOVE and that usually keep me very busy!
My Perfect Day....
....starts with a kiss goodbye from my husband Frank (at 6:15 a.m.!)
....is filled with meow's by two hungry kitties....
....starts with a good number on this....
....a yummy, healthy breakfast....12 grain toast with peanut butter and sliced bananas, all from Aldi's. We are Jif peanut butter fans in this house but I finally tried Peanut Delight from Aldi's. Absolutely no difference in taste. It just happens to be $2.99 for the same size Jif for $5.29.
....a cha-ching or two on this......my phone is set to cha-ching whenever I get a sale in my Etsy shop!
A perfect day is when my new computer does not act up or go out because of our local service.
My "office".......my co-worker is usually with me all day.
....a perfect day is filled with a visit from Chloe and JC......
....or a cookie decorating day with Cassidy....
My perfect day......
....includes baking, one of my passions. I may try a new recipe or make an old favorite. My son wants dessert every night, but I can't deliver that every day! Occasionally I bake for our community theatre or some other event. This Ho Ho cake is a favorite.
|All of my boxes and filler to ship the items for my Etsy |
shop come from the dumpster at Frank's job.
....is anticipating dinner time.....these days I am cooking one healthy meal for me and one manly meal for my husband and son.
......is claiming my spot on the couch for the rest of the evening watching this....
My mornings are not my own so I don't do devotions first thing. I do them before bed when the kitties are tucked in for the night and can't crawl all over me and I have some time to myself.
I stay connected by praying and talking to the Lord all day long for whatever is going on that day or for what is going on in others' lives. Most people who pray know that you could spend all day just praying for others!
My perfect day ends getting into this.....
....to relax and start reading my devotions which include Our Daily Bread, The Word for Today, Jesus Calling, Jesus Today and A Grandmother's Prayers. Phillip Mouse is a children's book written by a friend that I am reading before I give it to Cassidy to read.
I received A Grandmothers Prayers, by Kay Swatkowski, from Discovery House, the publishers of Our Daily Bread. I highly recommend it! It is a 60 day devotional with an emphasis on subjects grandmothers can pray for their grandchildren, with each day concluding with a Let Us Pray and Think and Do section with prayers included.
Goodnight for now and wake up to another perfect day in my home sweet home.
What does your perfect day look like?
