Weekly Wrap-Up

Happy Friday, y’all! I hope you’ve all had an amazing week. We’ve had a great one. The weather has been fantastic and I’ve been able to have the doors and windows open. I love it, but my allergy-sufferers claim that I’m trying to kill them.

I felt dressed up, even in a hoodie, with my matching Fair Trade Friday goodies on.

As a compromise, I’ve only kept open the window in my room, the door in the dining room (where I work), and one door to our screened in porch. I also bought two essential oil diffusers and I’ve been diffusing lavender, peppermint, and lemon in the bedrooms.

Speaking of our screened in porch, I’ve been working on teaching Belle, Brianna’s dog, to open the door from the porch to outside with a piece of cloth tied to the door handle. That dog is so smart! I’ve only worked with her a couple of days and she’s almost got it.

I’ve been having fun with my Instant Pot. So far I’ve made homemade chicken noodle soup, chicken pot pie, and my first-ever batch of homemade yogurt. All were delicious, but I’m particularly proud of the yogurt. I feel so domestic.

We’ve been adding fruit preserves to the yogurt for a little sweetness, along with fresh fruit and granola. I saw a recipe that calls for using sweetened condensed milk that I want to try since we’re all used to store-bought flavored yogurt instead of plain. I do love the flavor of the batch I made, though, and it doesn’t take much to sweeten it.

Wednesday our church had a dance for the high school students. Yeah, I know, I’ve never heard of a church hosting a dance either, but the kids were all excited about it and there was a good turnout. Admission was baby supplies (diapers, wipes, etc.) for a local pregnancy center. Since prom is next Friday, my crew considered it prom practice.

They sure do clean up nice, don’t they?

I can’t believe how grown my kids are getting.

I also can’t believe that this weekend is Easter. Our church is doing a Saturday night service in addition to both Sunday services. That means it’s going to be a busy weekend since I serve in the nursery. That’s okay, though. It will be a good kind of busy – and next week is spring break!

  1. I wish our church would have a dance like that! Unfortunately, there’s some archaic law on the books at our church stating that there’s no dancing allowed, and since they’ve never officially removed it, technically, we can’t have anything dancing-related there (although there’s quite a bit of dancing at VBS). Weird, right? I don’t know what they’re waiting for. Sigh.

    And great job on your domesticity! 😉 Yesterday I overcooked chicken noodle soup. Yes, it’s possible. Domestic goddess, I am not.

  2. How fun for your kids! My church hosts dances for the high school age students about every other month and they’re some of my best memories from high school. We joined with the other congregations from our denomination in the area, so I got to make friendships with kids I might not have known otherwise, and enjoy a dance with no dirty dancing or inappropriate songs.

  3. Your kids look fantastic!!

    Not a lie – I read the word “allergy” at the beginning of your post and starting sneezing!! hahaha
