Ya'll are going to have to try it once I post the recipe to the beans blog later in the week!!

On my To Do List:
  • The car has another appointment with the mechanic. There were a few things they needed parts for that they couldn't fix last week.
  • Swimming. I'm aiming for 1 km again.
  • Having coffee with a friend at one of my favorite bakeries !
  • I'm going to do some house work.
  • I hope to do some baking.
  • AND ......... we're putting an offer on a house today !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking forward to:
The owners of our new house accepting our offer !! Here's hoping ...

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Read everyone else who participates in Sandra's Happy Homemaker Monday to get good tips ! That's a tip ... a good one !! It's the best I can do !! ha ha


Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
The Sea and The Scarf by Angie at Bring The Rain
It's a long one so get a cup of tea before you go visit ! It's well worth the read though ... her whole blog is ! If you haven't visited Angie before, I suggest you do.

Favorite photo from last week:

From my 'I Love Gadgets' post ...

Lesson learned the past few days:
Waiting patiently has it's benefits.

On my Prayer List:
The offer on the house !!!
Amy's friend Noelle
Vikki's friend Regina

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Psalm 1 ...

Particularly the first part of verse 3 'He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season ...' Got me thinking about trees. And fruit. And how we often expect for the things we do to 'yield fruit' straight away ! But ... trees have to be planted, watered, exposed to sunlight, and grow (sometimes for a significant period of time) before they yield fruit !

I'm still thinking on this but it has been an encouragement to me this week ....

How exciting. That was really fast finding a house- you'll have to keep us posted.
Post some pictures if you have any!

I will be praying for you and your new house!
I really liked your scarf - not only the color but the fluff. BTW what did your sald taste like - sweet or tangy? Just wondering. It looks great though! Have a happy week.
