Sunday - it's a day I usually do lesson plans in the evening while the kids are at youth group, Honey relaxes by watching some game (this is a fancy way of saying he's taking a nap) or we'll sit and talk. All weekend I meant to get out my sewing and work on my quilt, but the weather was just beautiful! So what did I do? I took some time to catch up on some blogs and friends I've missed reading.
Glenda over at Gg is settling in her new home and received a lovely blog award - she has a rich and wonderful story to share - always encouraging.
My friend Kelly is expecting another miracle
The Momma found a way to find joy in laundry (she masquerades as the Quilt Lady)
Lorie is celebrating her momma moving closer to her
My friend EM is finding her week a little more calm and answers to questions being answered.
and where did all this lead me? Blog surfing! I found this lovely blog that Felicity from Australia, Gifts of serendipity. She posed a lovely idea of creating a strand of Lustrous Pearls honoring women in our lives:
"They are women we admire, they are women we care about.
They inspire us, they help us reflect on our own lives and give thanks for what we have."
I loved perusing, being encouraged, and I love her Word of the Week! Something I learned today that I wanted to share with you.
[n] mental weariness from lack of occupation or interest.
The feeling of being bored by something tedious.
Listlessness, tedium, lassitude, languor.
Do you see where I'm going with this? Finally a fancy name for The Blahs! Now if I only knew how to pronounce it! Well, I'm must confess that I feel ennui at the thought of heading out into the night for last minute groceries, when I'd rather stay home and watch the Hallmark movie The Lost Valentine...
