Today has been a super busy one for this gal!
I know all my other 2L friends are feeling the same! Whew..
However, I was happy to come home from school and relax with some simple joys:
1. Package from my sister!
Loved seeing newest pics of my brother who is serving in Afghanistan (prayers appreciated!), newest artwork of my sweet niece and nephew, and of course Keri's baking puts Martha to shame! Thank you, love!
2. "Baked cookies" scented candle
Two reasons I love my newest candle:
18-hour jar on clearance for $2.50
IT SMELLS LIKE BAKED COOKIES
3. A big pot of veggie chili in the crockpot!
Another one of my "invented" meals: kidney beans, black beans, diced tomatoes (all undrained), frozen corn, leftover butternut squash cubes and limas from other dinners that I wanted to get rid of (don't you love that about soups??), garlic powder, packet of low-sodium chili seasoning... on low for 6ish.
Topped with sour cream and cheese. Whole fat. Sorry I'm not sorry.
Despite it's lack of formality, Eleanor and I enjoyed two bowls each. THAT good, people.
So, make it today if you're an income-less law student who is busy during the day and gets hungry after school and running and wants something easy, warm, filling, and nutritious!
Or if you're just a regular person who wants something easy, warm, filling, and nutritious!
You can obviously alter the random stuff I threw in there!
Or leave out the cheese! It makes lots!
4. Apple Cider and Bible study with my favorite law gals
Thank you sweet mama for all the K-cups!
TWO items of snail mail in one day? I hardly knew how to contain myself.
After dinner and squealing over my packages, my friends came over for Wednesday night small group. I am SO thankful for this time! Tonight we studied Mark 2 and how the friends of the paralyzed man sacrificed to get their friend to Christ. What would that look like in my life? Am I going out of my way to show Christ's love or merely going through the motions? Hmmmm...praying big prayers for the former!
So yea, that's been my evening so far!
Hopefully I'm not too boring for y'all. :)
Off to read for CivPro....
At least I can do so with the scents of baked goods in the air! :)
Love to each of you!
