Right now, I am…

SouleMama does “right now” posts on a fairly regular basis, and that kind of post just felt right to me today.

looking forward to eating these sweet rolls for breakfast.

A pan of apricot sweet rolls.

-delighted that Mr. FG and I have discovered we can sleep a wee bit later. Two days ago, we accidentally overslept by 25 minutes and still managed to get him out the door in time. That was a little TOO rushed, so we thought we’d try setting the alarm for 10 minutes later so we could hurry a bit less. I’m pleased to say it worked out perfectly, and I think we’re going to feel like an extra ten minutes of sleep is worth having to be a little more efficient.

-thinking that I need to come up with a summer time budget so that I don’t waste my summer

-wanting to make some soft pretzels

-happy that I don’t have to go anywhere today.

-feeling like this week is a little too busy for my taste.

-remembering again that a pared-down schedule helps me to be more peaceful.

-feeling surprised that June is almost gone (see the time-budget item…gotta make sure I don’t waste this time!)

-listening again to Betsy Ricucci’s series on emotions, and feeling convicted about how my thoughts so easily drift inward when things are hard, and how looking inward leads to self-pity (most recently about Mr. FG’s schedule).

-being reminded that there’s grace to help me fight against that.

-thrilled that my friend Kristen, who I’ve know online for 9 years but have never met in person, is going to be in my area this summer. Yay!! She’s been on the short list of internet friends I want to meet for so long, but since she lives on the west coast and I live on the east cost, a meetup has not happened until now.

-working on cleaning out my email inbox. I’ve been doing really well at this for the last couple of weeks, but the inbox did get a little bit piled up yesterday. I’ve been implementing the “touch it once” rule, and it’s helped a lot!

-grateful for the bags of hand-me-downs my cousin gave to Lisey. Sonia and Zoe can always wear Lisey’s hand-me-downs, but of course, Lisey has no big sisters to hand clothes to her. So, I’m always thrilled when I get things in Lisey’s size.

-going to go eat breakfast with the kids and make a plan for how I’m going to get all my tasks done over these next couple of busy days.

Have a lovely Thursday!

What a nice day. We need those days to recover from our hard busy work that we enjoy too.

Can I just "ditto" most of your musings? Oh, and I have an soft pretzel recipe. I'll have to post it sometime. It's just like Auntie Ann's, remember those from the mall back in the '90s? Anyway, they are deeee-licious! Or have I sent it to you already? Anyway, now I have to go make some this weekend because I'm totally craving them.

And yes, please post the danish recipe. Yum yum.

I'm totally jealous that you get to meet Kristen!!! You better share about your meet up. :)

Love Betsy Ricucci teachings. Oh, self-pity, always trying to be my friend. What a task it is to capture and redirect our thoughts! Something worth the effort, though. Do you go to a Sovereign Grace Church?

No, we don't, although we do love SG's stuff! We've visited a couple, but all of the ones "in our area" are too far away for us to really consider joining (it would be hard to be involved during the week).

We're so grateful for SG's ministry to us, though, through their books, music, and messages.
