It’s been a while since I shared my weekly joys, not because my life has lacked joy but because my life has lacked time.

1. Electricity

Hurricane Michael stole the electricity at my apartment on Thursday, October 11 at 5:00pm.  After watching the Duke Energy website all day at work on Friday, I decided to stay with my parents until electricity was restored.  I finally regained power on Sunday after 4:00 pm.

1. A new season of Monk (kind of)

Although this season was released in 2006-2007, and I have seen all the episodes, I am now the owner of season five on DVD.  I see a lot of Scrabble and Monk in my future.

March 10-16, 2018

1. Longer days and more sunlight!

May we never lose the blessing that is Daylight Savings Time!

2. The overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God.

(both the actual love of God, and the chorus of this song.  Check out the lyrics!)

Oh! The overwhelming, never ending, reckless love of God.

Oh! It chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine.

I couldn’t earn it. I don’t deserve it! Still, You give Yourself away.

Oh! The overwhelming, never ending, reckless love of God.

3. This cartoon that Brother shared on Facebook.

And the top comment that he added is true.  Our last name actually means “sheep” in German.

March 3 – 9, 2018

1. Chocolate covered almonds

(or chocolate covered anything, if I’m being honest)

2. Finishing my first graduate-level class

(with a good grade!)

3. Free shipping. 

Am I the only one who falls for the marketing schemes?  The website says, “Spend $10 more to qualify for free shipping.”  So I spend $10, usually on peanut butter.

 

Two questions for you:

  1. What is your favorite chocolate-covered food?
  2. Do you put more in your cart so that you qualify for free shipping?

1. President’s Day Sales

If you follow my Instagram, you know that I eat most of my lunches at Old Salem.  However, the nasty weather on Monday convinced me that I should make a quick stop at Hamricks.  I left the store with three different pairs of new flats (black, chambray, and a sort of pewter-tan-gray color) and fleece-lined leggings.  I love a good deal!

1. Homemade chocolate and peanut butter no-bake cookies

I had never added chocolate to my peanut butter no-bake cookies, but I made two batches of these cookies this week (one batch for a game night, and one batch for Bible study).  Y’all. These. Are. So. Good.
