Today was house-cleaning day! Woo Hoo! Parts of the house are done and the rest will come later.
I subscribe to http://www.proverbs31.org/ for a daily devotional and sometimes I read the blogs of the contributors Yesterday, I just happened to read the blog of the contributor, http://www.marybethwhalen.com/ who was beginning a new activity for the month of August. Each day she will post a question, quote, or verse to challenge us to journal our response. I have never really been good at journaling. I can't even blog every day! But, I am giving it a try. Today's question was "where do you want to be in 10 years?" I responded where I want to be spiritually, physically, professionally, and socially. I challenge each of you to look at Mary Beth's website and try journaling yourself.
Last night, I made chicken-fried steak, mashed potatoes, and cream gravy for dinner. N was in heaven! It's been at least 5 years since I made chicken-fried steak. I didn't even have a cast-iron skillet last time, but I did yesterday! There's not much you can do to make something deep fried healthier, but I did use the Pioneer brand gravy mix that's fat free and I used fat-free half and half to make the potatoes. I have to say it was delicious!
E is having a fabuous time in Destin. She texted today that she had seen 3 baby sharks that were about 6 inches long. I told her to look out for the mama shark! Check her blog to see pics she has posted. It's under blogs I follow and is A Guide to Emily's Life.
