If we were having coffee, I would warn you that I have turned into a coffee snob. I didn’t realize this until we were out of our usual and my husband made a late night run to the store and bought Folgers. The next day it was a hard cup to choke down, but we made it through. Thankfully we have our usual again, so don’t worry, you will get the good stuff. We are loving Black Rifle Coffee and have tried three flavors so far. All of them very delicious and smooth. We also have cream and sugar if you like, I have recently ditched the oh so toxic, but oh so yummy store bought creamers. Health journey and all.
This week I haven’t been very busy, or productive for that matter. All three of my children have come down with some sort of cold bug. Nothing too serious, but serious enough for lots of whining, nose wiping, clinging and cartoons. We have been battling the bug with elderberry syrup and essential oils. So far so good, no fevers and no major issues. Even though we have been stuck in the house and have barely gotten out of our pjs, I haven’t really had time to do any more than the dishes around the house. You would think that this would be the time I could get more housework done. Nope, no such luck. That’s fine and dandy with me, I will sit and snuggle with my babes as I watch Mickey Mouse for the 100th time.
If you were here for coffee, I would tell you how I keep sneaking my husband’s favorite Army mug. I prefer using this one because, I know it sounds silly, but the coffee even tastes better out of it. It is larger than any other in the cupboard, has a wider handle, is heavier, and even has a little character with it’s chipped top. Seriously though, I don’t really know why I prefer this mug, maybe because I know it’s been with my husband for longer than I have, or maybe because I get more coffee each time I use it. Whatever the reason, I am going to keep sneaking it.
I will tell you that I am so not used to this Tennessee heat yet. I am also thankful my kiddos have not wanted to go outside or anywhere for that matter. It’s been crazy hot and this northern girl is not used to it. I keep telling myself it’s better than the six months of cold and snowy Michigan winters. It’s better than winter…it’s better than winter…
If we were having coffee I would excitedly tell you that I think we have found a good church down the road to attend. It’s been a journey, a crazy one, but I feel God has pointed us to the church that fits our family. I believe this is so beneficial for us. For the past few years, I have struggled with my walk with the Lord. We have been through so many personal and professional struggles that I focused on our troubles and let my faith take a backseat. Which of course is the exact opposite of what I should be doing, but here I am. So yeah, I am really excited for this church and I am really trying to stay focused on my walk with the Lord.
As I look at the time I see that my two youngest will be waking from their naps at any second. I am sure you have many things to do today so I will let you get to them. Thank you for sitting down with me for coffee. May God Bless you and have a great week!
