Investing Time, Good Food and a Room Redo

The key is I'm not spending time, but in investing it. ~ Stephen R. Covey

Go to the ant, O sluggard;

consider her ways and be wise.

Without having any chief, officer, or ruler,

she prepares her bread in summer,

and gathers her food in harvest.

How long will you lie there, O sluggard?

When will you arise from your sleep?

A little sleep, a little slumber,

a little folding of the hands to rest,

and poverty will come upon you like a robber,

and want like an armed man.

~ Proverbs 6:6-11

Today we've spent a lot of time cooking, working, and having fun together.

I had been experimenting with sour dough but then I got side tracked and the starter went bad from neglect. So I had to start over. And I've discovered I really like these sourdough flatbreads. They are so simple to make. This morning we had some topped with scrambled eggs and cheese for breakfast. For lunch we had had macaroni and cheese, meatballs, green beans, and blueberries. And for dinner this evening we had homemade chicken and rice soup - full of chopped veggies and simmered all day. There's something about chopping veggies that makes me smile- I love all the colors and flavors. And those fresh eggs in the background make me happy too 😊

The kids definitely stayed busy today. . . .

We are knee deep in a room redo - turning an unused space upstairs into a family room. I've worked on cleaning out the old stuff we had stored in there, and Michael has been a huge help with that.

And Chris has been working on cleaning and priming the walls. He worked on them some more after he got home this evening and then we went and picked out our paint and some other supplies. There is some furniture coming on Friday and more the day after Christmas. I'm so excited to see how this room will turn out.

And here's another excerpt from this book I am working my way through.

The problem is not that you don't have enough time. Everyone gets the same twenty-four hours every day. That will never change, but you can change how you will utilize that time . . . . . Start paying closer attention to what you spend your time doing. Once you can become more aware of what's distracting you from what you need to accomplish, you can adjust and put systems in place to get back on track.
