One Day at a Time


The sweet days of summer are coming to an end...a week today and my oldest two will return to school!  I'm shocked that summer is practically over!  We've enjoyed it, that's for sure, most days have been lovely and over all, I'm sad to see my big gals heading back....marking another spent summer in that elusive summer countdown until they are out of the house and on their own!



Ugh!


But I digress.  


Today they are colouring pencil cases for carrying their supplies.  Colour your own pencil cases....I want one!  I've asked to help them...but so far they have refused! lol!!  Mostly we are just hanging out these last few days, hoping to hit the beach at least once more, sneak in more play time and trying to figure out if we should ready ourselves with routine start up now, or just let it all go for the last week!?!







.
As for my Hubby, he's been busy!! He's been working almost everyday since he was laid off, other then the time off for our vacation, which is a blessing, for sure!!  We pray the work continues but 'handyman' things tend to tapper off as the colder months set in....but no matter what, God has His plan and so we continue to take it, one day at a time!  Not always joyfully, nah...I'm not fully there yet, but we try!! lol!!



In other news, two photos that I entered into a 'local' Christian Radio station contest have made it into the finalists!!  I'd LOVE for you to head over there and give them a vote!  These are my two:

 So just find them in the line up and cast your vote!!! (click 'Like' or leave a "vote" comment)  Buuut there are lots of nice pictures there...so if one of my two are not your favourite then pick the one that is! But I appreciate the support all the same!


Shameless plug...over!

lol!!



And well...that's about all I have as of late.  We've had family visits which were FANTASTIC!!  Bon fires with friends.  There are Netflix marathons and creative projects...more of the former than the latter...I'm ashamed to say! Hahaha!!  There are piles of dishes that never seem to end and side walk chalk art that doesn't want to wash away...one I enjoy more then the other...you guess which!  There are temper tantrums and tears and sometimes from the kids as well!  There is always the laundry to fold...always....and new toys to enjoy...for both young and old!  There are grumpy days with not enough coffee and fun days full of laughter and love!    There is looking ahead all while enjoying the now....and there are these summer days that will quickly melt into Autumn ones....







.
And so, we take it as it comes, looking to our Lord, trusting in His care and hoping for the best.  That, it seems, is just how it goes...one day at a time.










But I will hope continually
and will praise You more and more.
                                                                           -Psalm 71:14

  1. Another lovely post and I want one each of those four face shots to put in my frames! If you send them to Walmart, I can pick them up and pay for them. However that is done.....sad that summer is ending, but I am a September baby and I love the fall most of all.

    1. Two of them are the wrong orientation for your frames! :P I do love Fall too - my favourite for sure!! I'll be happy for many reasons when it is here but lazy summer days have a special place in my heart! :)

  3. Savor the week before school... it is so important... Enjoy these days of summer, and make as many memories as you can... A Beach Trip sounds so wonderful, I love Sand between my toes... Enjoy... Loved the photo's... Good luck with the contest... and you have my vote for both, but I realize that doesn't really count.. ;) Glad the hubby is working some, God will provide which you know, just stay strong and believe his plan is far better than our plan... Bless you girl...

    1. I'm not a huge beach fan but this little beach we go to is well shaded and perfect for kids, so I love it there!! Hoping to make it Friday or Saturday...or both!! :D Do you not have Facebook? (not that you SHOULD just you know, so many people do!) if you don't then, no I guess you can't vote. Thank you for your encouragement!! ☼
