Girl Time

Here below are some pictures I took a while back, intending to use them in a post, but never got around to it due to the flu. I am still not 100% yet. Thinking about it, I am never 100%...LOL. I think I can manage an 85% with this body. Anyway, don't these pictures make you think of girl time?

I've read the All You magazine and it has a peanut butter cookie recipe in it that I want to try. I was going to make them last week and actually softened the butter for the recipe, but came down with a fever. The Southern Lady magazine has very pretty pictures and has some nice articles. I have not gotten to the Better Homes & Gardens one yet. I've been waiting for the right moment.

As you can see, I love polish. I need to give myself a pedicure real bad. I started one before I got sick. I had my old polish removed, toes clipped, nails oiled, etc. I just never got the polish on. Now it has been so long that I have to begin again, but that is okay I need the pampering.

The other day I treated myself to lunch with hubby and some shopping. I decided to let myself have an afternoon off. Today I worked very hard. With moving on my mind I am thinking about getting the house in shape to sell. Let me tell you, it is an overwhelming thought. There is 18 years worth of living in this house and that is not going to be easy to wade through. It is times like these when worldly possessions become a burden. Makes me remember when Jesus said, "One's life does not consist in the abundance of things he possess." (Luke 12:15). We definitely are going to be working on lightening our load as much as we can. And there is cosmetic work that needs to be done, thus a trip to Lowe's to pick up some paint chips. I've got my colors picked out, just waiting on my body to get a little stronger.

Becky -
Wow! That is a big move. I am very happy for you (Colorado sounds like DIVINE scenery!), but I totally understand not wanting to leave your house, friends, and "life." I will pray for you all.
I love magazines as well - I think you should make those pb cookies and take a photo to "share" them with us!

You remind me of my Mom! She loves nail polish and seems you both have the same tastes in colors too :)
She likes magazines too :)

i remember how overwhelming it was for me to move. i have moved more times than i care to count. my best advice is to pack what you can as you can. don't try to do it all at once. one thing at a time. it will be a fun adventure :-)

i am reading up on your blog and i missed the whole colorado move thing big time!! oh my goodness, i will be praying for you :-) Don't be afraid. Ten years ago, I left for Montana with 3 small kids and not enough money to feed them or even the gas money to get there. The more you trust in God, the more He comes through in supernatural ways. I promise, He will provide for and take care of you! Some time after my inlaws go, i will blog the whole story for you. God Bless!!
