Happy New Year! Its hard to believe 2010 is over and then not so much! It feels like it flew by! I am looking forward to the future! Pure and simple. *Ü*
Today we began our first day back at our "school" routine. I dropped one of my girls at work at 10 so the youngest and I went to Starbucks for coffee ( she had milk and water ) and treats. I even brought some school!We covered LA, our BSF studies and knitting. OK so knitting wasn't school but hey.
Once that was done we hit the book section for cake decorating! Starbucks is also inside Barnes and Noble.*Ü* Ry found 2 keepers. Plane Cake by Paris Cutler and my new favorite The whimsical bakehouse by Kaye Hansen and Liv Hansen. We are pretty excited! So much so we went to Joannes before heading home to pick up a few supplies!
We got home after 5 tonight. I made dinner, the girls took care of math and there world view assignments for the day. Its been a great day. No a fantastic day! We didn't start our Tapestry of Grace study today. That will start next week. I'm just not ready.
This New year:
The other day a dear lady I know, ok not just a lady, but Ill call her firend asked me what I will "do" this year. Not what resolution, but what can I do or learn or accomplish. She wasn't talking diets and things I will forget about in a month or 2. My response was to learn all I can about quick books. LOL Yes, you read that right. Quick Books! Not just for book keeping purposes but for my husbands new business.I need to learn to create invoices, billing, add customers and the like. My husband became a general contractor in July/August and we desire for me to get paid, not pay someone else to do that. My friend grew up with her daddy owning a construction business and has offered to help me accomplish this goal. She rocks. Not only that but is one smart cookie. She can do anything especially quick books!
The 2nd thing is something I thought about later. The 2nd thing is to continue to learn to not be so independent. No man is an Island right? Nor woman for that matter. I have a bad habit to retreat and handle things on my own and in my own way most of the time. I can do it, I can fix it, I don't need this or that in my life ect, ect. This brings me to number 3 to reach out to those around me when I need help. Its a bad habit I have to retreat! I'm a loner so to speak. Always have been. Its not that being alone is bad, but trying to handle life and struggles alone is. I have some remarkable woman in my life who not only can I share myself with but vise versa. They exemplify who I want to be in Christ. What I want to be more like when I grow up. *Ü* That includes you too mom! *Ü* I'm encouraged and excited for things to come, come what may. I am not alone.
Happy New year!!
Isaiah 43:16; 18-19
This is what the LORD says--he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters.... "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."
