Monday Musings

Whew! This partying business is exhausting! I'm basically an introvert (yes, really!) and the idea of going to a party with over 1000 people makes me weak in the knees.

But I have been having fun hopping around to lots of blogs meeting some new folks. Some I know will be new friends. There are lots of gals out there who love God, books, coffee, and chocolate!!

And for those of you who missed it because it got buried by the Party Post, I have a couple of recipes posted as part of Lysa TerKeurst's (Proverbs 31 Ministries) Recipe Swap. Just scroll down to my Friday post below the Blog Party post. And Bonnie Bruno from Macro Moments was sweet enough to come back and comment after she made my enchilada casserole about what a great recipe it is! But the funniest aspect of her comment was that she decided to subsitute a can of diced green chiles for the Rotel. . . . . and that's the substitution I made in the original Cooking Light recipe!

It's SPRING BREAK at our house. My boy and his best pal are happily brawling in the living room. My girl isn't even up yet, I don't think. What a bonus to have Spring Break immediately after the time change!

It's nice to be tucked safely in my own house! And wow, today's a good day to be partying in my armchair. It is a messy, rainy day outside. Perfect for curling up with a laptop or a book and a warm drink.

But I can't sit here all day. A girl does have other things that must be done. Like another Scrabble game!

And this afternoon I'll be taking my mom to the dentist. Wheelchairs and umbrellas are always a fun combination.

But how can I complain about the rain when I read words like this?!

Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; make music to our God on the harp.
He covers the sky with clouds; He supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills.
He provides food for the cattle and for the young ravens when they call.
His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor His delight in the legs of a man;
The LORD delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love.
Psalm 147:7-11

Have a blessed Monday!
