I'm Unplugging

Well a little late but thought I would still join in!

Obviously I am not a consistent blogger here but I really like the idea behind this so I wanted to share with all of you to sometime go check out Kimba's post on turning off all distractions for a whole day and spending that time focused on things that matter?

In life in general I need to prioritize my days to spend more consistent time with the Lord and more quality time with our family& home.[then its fine to have some own time,computer time etc. just not the other way around]. God has been working on me with this.[share more later]

For now I'm turning the computer off and turning on time with God & family

I called for RECIPES...

{Measuring cup perfect for an espresso shot cup}
Recipes... I can sit all day and browse through cookbook after cookbook. It seems though that the recipes I use the most are from my little box sitting on my kitchen counter. They are so special to me being as each one has been shared by a friend or family member gathered
by my sister for my bridal shower.

When I was walking through a department store over Christmas shopping I came across
this adorable red tin recipe box. I thought it would go perfectly in our niece's kitchen that she has been planning for [getting married in May]. I went ahead and purchased it to find recipes cards later.... well I wasn't able to find any really cute ones that were not to expensive. So I decided to make some out of plain index cards. I had so much fun personalizing them for her and then receiving all of her friends & families prized recipes{i think I need to ask her for some copies, they all looked so mmm good } to organize in the box. Last night was her big shower so I finally got the gift all together for her to enjoy. Being as I had made the cards and saved on some expense, I was able to give her a couple of other items including my Favorite coffee mugs from Anthro. So sturdy, just the right size and not to girly for our men to use.

I'm off to enjoy a White Mocha in my "B" Mug and browse the recipes for supper right now.....

The LORD is our rock...

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2

After two weeks of really bad sickness and one week to start moving [slowly] again, I finally feel like joining the blogland again. Praise God for giving us endurance and making us stop and rest at times.
