A Good Day To Stay Home
Can you hear the wind blow through the trees?
Church was canceled and we are having a quiet morning at home.
I kept waking in the night due to the howling winds, and once because of my boy coughing. He's had a bit of a cold, so I woke him and gave him cough medicine. He was sleeping fine, but I wasn't! The cough medicine helped us both sleep!
I started a pot of soup yesterday. I put one of our roosters in the pot with carrots, onions, garlic, sea salt, fresh cracker pepper, and parsley and let him cook away. He made a lovely broth and combined with the meat it will be a lovely Chicken and Orzo soup for today.
I need to add the orzo and some corn. I may make some cornbread to go with this.
We are watching a pair of eagles in York County on a local newspaper's 'eagle cam.' Just click the link. The female laid an egg yesterday, so she is on the nest now, full time.
Thinking ahead to our homeschool convention in May, planning some treats for Emma for her birthday, finishing up our school year.
I'm starting a book today for a review I am doing for Bethany House Publishers. I'm sure I'll enjoy it. It's by Jeanette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan "Where Trust Lies." It will be my first review. I'm excited to do it.
Tim is working his last Sunday for Donnelley. We are thankful how God has provided for our family through his work for them. We are also excited for the opportunity for a new job, with the same pay and better benefits, overall. They are sorry to see him leave, as he is very gifted at what he does.
One last note - last night we got Five Guys Burgers and Fries (totally an off plan meal for me) for us and the kids and had 'dinner theater' here at home. We love to do this and it was fun to share Valentine's Day as a family, though we surely missed our Emma.
We are making memories.
I hope you all had a wonderful day celebrating with your loved ones!
