April :: Goals and Favorites

The heartiest of hellos to you,
sweet friends. Currently, I am cuddling in my favorite sea-colored
blanket, with coffee in mind, and great music in the background. The current
rain storms we’re getting and the lovely (though surprising) pops of
colors from the local greenery has me feeling alive and ready to accomplish big
things. How appropriate then that Amelia should post her goals and favorites
this month and invite others to join in too! J So here I go, sharing my goals and favorites for this

twice :: D and I have
been watching The Gospel of John and
I really enjoy reading Scripture with it.

Stick to our set budget/meal
ideas :: We’ve come
up with a workable budget and I’m excited to apply it

and ready to be sent at the end of the month

4. Basement brigade :: Wash down the ceiling, walls, and back room of basement

    A herb garden doesn't have to be large, and a few pots would be enough…things like mint (always grow in a pot, or it will walk), thyme, chives and Basil.
