April Showers

 We woke up to a very dreary Thursday. 
Dreary weather makes me want something homemade and baked,
so I whipped up some blueberry muffins! 
(see my recipe page- I posted it there)
Top it off with a cup of AMAZING coffee in my new mug
(birthday present from Erika)
My morning got better and warmer:)


I've been reading lately. I go in spurts. 
I try to have one spiritual/theological book and 
one fiction book going at the same time.
Right now, here is what I am reading...
#1. April in Paris by Michael Wallner- this story takes place in France during WWII and is a love story about a German soldier and French Resistance Fighter- I am not very far into it but it has been good so far. 
#2. Just Do Something- A liberating approach to finding God's Will OR how to make a decision without dreams, visions, fleeces, impressions, open doors, random Bible verses,  casting lots, liver shivers, writing in the sky,etc. ( I am not kidding when I tell you that is the title of the book:) It is written by Kevin DeYoung and is right on in my opinion! Its a very easy read for the common person- not too many big words and written in a way thats easy to understand!
So, there you have it- my Thursday. 
We have Community Group tonight with tacos on the menu- YUM! 
I cant wait! you all know I love food!
And as I am typing this- the sun is coming out!
Good thing because I am not getting much reading done with Elijah and Ella popping up all around me and getting the windex out and spraying everything in sight, and jumping on my bed, and helping themselves to animal crackers, and trying on every shoe in their closet .. you get the idea! 
Maybe we will spend some time outside before nap time and lunch.
I need to wear these kiddos out.

Ha! If I baked every time it was dreary weather around here, my family would be gaining weight like crazy! (thus says the lady who just pulled a batch of double peanut butter cookies from the oven.) I will have to check out your recipe -t hose blueberry muffins look amazing!
That book you are reading - Just Do It - sounds very interesting and right along the thoughts I've been having lately. i'll have to look it up and see if it's available for my Kindle.
have a great rest of the day!

thankfully, we rarely have dreary weather! It is honestly almost always sunny here!
