What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Chatter, chatter

Two days ago the weatherman said it was going to be low-50's so I decided it was high-time for a picnic. I knew it would be soggy, so armed with our muckboots and our picnic basket and blanket, we headed to the park.

I don't know WHAT the weatherman was smoking, but it WAS NOT 50 degrees out. The children both wore coats, but I didn't have one-and let me tell you, I froze my patooti off!!!

The kids had fun, we ate yummy picnic food, we fed the ducks...

and I am still trying to shake the chill!

Won't be doing THAT again for a while! ;-)

Your weatherman must have been smoking the same stuff ours was. We heard 57 here. I made empty promises of bubbles, that I had to break because after just 10 minutes we had to come back inside. The poor kiddos were not happy with me, and I'm still left longing for Spring to ACTUALLY arrive. :-)

We're freezing here! We're supposed to get snow :-(. I cannot wait for real spring weather!

Hi Rebecca :) LOL! I am so sorry - but, still... hooray for dreams of picnics and muck boots, and mommies that plan adventures, and warm weather that will come. Love, Q

Rebecca...come visit me, we'll go to the lake on a picnic!!! Today was chilly, only low 50's but it has been in the upper 60s-70's. LOVE this weather. Also love that the furnace isn't having to work as hard, so less $ for that...gotta love that! :o) I noticed this morning that it was still 69 in the house, and at night it is supposed to go down to 60...no wonder I felt hot during the night! I'm not used to having it that warm in the house.
Spring IS coming...Just one more symbol of God's promises...the death of winter and the new life of spring!

Rebecca..I figured out how to put my pic in the header...I even did a little playing with the cropping and color. I'm so excited about how it turned out!!

Love the pictures, especially the boot ones. Cute boots, are the green ones Target?

Panda's and mine are from Target. The Pink ones I got at old Navy. All were under $5.00 at the end of the season clearance. ;-)
