A New Friend, Sour Dough Crackers, corn Meal Mush and More

Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. ~ Galatians 6:9

Sometimes it feels like the day to day "grind" is getting us nowhere fast. But the truth is each day that we keep moving forward, or, sometimes simply getting up and trying again, is moving us forward bit by bit, whether we see it in the moment or not. So let's not lose heart but continue moving forward, one step at a time.

Today has been a mix of feeling like progress was made and sometimes feeling like we were taking a step backward but over all it was a good day.

The kids had lots of fun together -

A new friend came to play today and all the kids immediately loved her!

I love days like this that are peceful and filled with laughter and peaceful play.

I had a bag in the feeezerfull of veggie scraps and some meat trimmings that I cooked up for broth today. Then I used that broth to make a couple pans of cornmeal mush that will be sliced and fried for breakfast in the morning.

The sourdough crackers started out looking good but then I got distracted and they burned 😢

We had bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns and biscuits for breakfast and fish sandwiches, Mac and cheese (leftover from yesterday), peas and applesauce for lunch. For dinner we had hamburger helper and Lima beans with an ice cream sandwich for dessert.

The paint we bought last night was not a good match for the space we needed it for so we made another trip to Walmart this evening. Hopefully this color will work.

In my reading recently I've come across similar ideas expressed in different ways. I found it interesting and thought I would share it here.

I've gotten where I am today not because of any big event, but because of those micro-actions that I consistently took to create routines in my life. Although many of those actions may have seemed insignificant at the time, those were the actions that mattered the most and have had the most impact because they compound over time. . . . . It doesn't matter what you're trying to do, you don't have to be the smartest, fastest, or most talented person to reach your goals. You just have to be the most consistent. If you show up for yourself every day, if you're aimed in the right direction and taking the right action, you will eventually hit your goal.

And then there is this quote from Craig Groeschel ~

So what have researchers concluded? They've found that "fanatical consistency " leads to the success of the best of the best. These leaders are successful because of their zealousness of doing the same (usually small) right things over and over.
