Tuesday in the Cottage... A Little


On this lovely day at home....  

A little Bible...  I've got a new NKJV Study Bible that I'll be looking through today.  I want to look at the little extras they put in it to make it a study Bible.  I'll do some reading in the book of Philippians, too.

A little errand running...  A joyous no!  I don't even have the van today.  It's a stay home day.  Praise God!

A little cleaning... just a general clean up.

A little cooking...  I've got a nice roast that I'll sear well and put in the oven this afternoon with some carrots and onions.  I'll make some mashed potatoes and gravy, too.  

A little reading...  I'm reading a biography of George Mueller aloud to the children.

A little teaching time...  Spelling, math, and such.

A little knitting... Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth from Joy at Artful Homemaking.

A little computer time...  E-mail, linking a few posts to blog parties, reading a few blogs, and a little writing.

A lot of meetings... Another joyous no!  I do hope my oldest son will join us for dinner and pumpkin carving tonight.

A few minutes of relaxation, no doubt with a book, then a little sleeping.

  1. Your blog is such a beautiful place of peace. But anywhere that is centered on Him radiates that joy!

  2. I love the days when I do not run around doing errands and stay at home. Loved seeing your list and hope that you have all your family together for the carving!

  3. It sounds like a very nice day... We don't go places a lot and when we have to, I yearn for those days that are "at home" days. I like your list... do I have one like it? no... but maybe I should. :) It has been a "fly by the seat of my pants" kind of time... and I should get back to my lists. Thank you for sharing this.

  4. I think your page is beautiful and your post for today is lovely. I don't have them often, but a day just to stay at home and do what we love to do is such a blessing. I found you on R&R Linky. I have pinned and tweeted because this is a post that will nudge people to appreciate the little things.

  5. Thanks so much, J. I want my whole life to be centered on Him. I pray His shalom peace (nothing broken, nothing missing, complete peace) fill you. In Jesus' Name.


    Blessings to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

  6. I long for those days at home now, Joy. I'm afraid I took them for granted for too long, and now I miss them dearly.

    Have a wonderful productive weekend.

  7. Clearissa, I am so honored. Thank you. Days when I can be home all day are rare for me now and will soon become rarer. It helps to enjoy the little things as I can.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. They are wonderful, aren't they Karen. Staying home is such a privilege. I wish I had found joy in it when I could do it daily. Live and learn I suppose. Thanks so much for visiting me and "talking back"!

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.

Be blessed!
