Today was an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day today! I was able to sleep in until 10:00 am (thanks honey!) and then when I got up I took my 3 boys to the Farmer's Market, Academy Sports (to get knew tennis shoes for tennis), and then to Sam's Club to pick up some goodies for Relief Society tomorrow. We are doing something special for all the mom's in our ward. When I got home I was so exhausted that I put my head on my pillow and slept deeply for over 2 hours! My body still needs lots of rest but my head doesn't realize it. After I got up I was able to garden a little outdoors while 4 of my sweet 5 children played outside. This new hobby is so wonderful in the way that I get to be with my kids so much more plus I still get to do all of my other hobbies. I have been thinking of the Parable of the Talents lately in the New Testament (Holy Bible). The Lord will give us as many talents as we want to develop but that doesn't mean he will take away our other talents. Sometimes I am afraid to try new things because I think then I can't do all the other things I love. Not true at all! Plus, I am gaining a whole new respect for plants! LOL! I will share pictures of my jungle at the bottom of this post. This was all done since my surgery but it has been the most peaceful & relaxing thing to do.
We also, as a Relief Society Presidency, wanted to do a fun activity for the Sisters this month. One that didn't involve any lessons, talks, etc. We are calling it our fluff activity! LOL! Just opening and closing prayers with food and friendship in the middle! Can't beat that! Here are the 72 invitations I made tonight to pass out tomorrow. Notice how I stamped and didn't use my Cricut on these ones? I still love my Cricut but it is nice doing something else for a project.
Here are my 3 boys at the Farmer's Market. All we got today was some Asparagus.
You will see how how my newest hobby is kind of going a bit crazy BUT I am enjoying the beautiful outdoors so much more now than ever!
