This Week's To-Do List: 7/2/22

Welcome to this week's 'to-do' list and to the month of July!  Let’s just say that I’m glad the month of June is behind us.  It was not a good month for us …

 ~ covid (both of us at the same time)

~ a significant fall for me

~ a rather large, unexpected auto repair

~ phone line getting cut by power company resulting in loss of home phone and internet services

 Through it all though, God was faithful to open up avenues that helped us cope with each.  I simply love being a child of God, He is faithful!  Do things always turn out the way I want?  NO, but even when the way made for me is more difficult than I would prefer, I take comfort in being His child.

(Isn't this a peaceful looking picture!  I snapped it on one of our trips to a Mennonite settlement.)

Here's what my last 'to-do' list looked like (before our phone line was accidently cut taking out our internet service) ...

Bible Study:  work on lesson 2 of the 'Knowing Our Enemy' Bible study I'm writing.  Done!

Exercise:  Get in 5000 steps a day.  I did it!

Harvest and preserve the rest of our cabbage:  I’m still working on this!

Plant watermelon and cantaloupe:  Didn’t get done!

Finish making over the table that belonged to my mama:  This is almost done, I have just a few touch-ups to do and then it will be finished.

Work on preserving potatoes:  Didn’t get done!

Stitch up a 'Santa Hat' sample block for the 'Christmas in July' quilt I plan to make.  Done! 

In addition, I canned green beans, beets and started more fermented garlic honey.  I add a tablespoon of fermented garlic honey to a cup of hot water, stir it up well and sip on it most every evening.  I really like the taste and as a bonus, it’s good for me!

What’s on my to-do list for the upcoming week?

Bible Study:  complete lesson 2 of the ‘Knowing Our Enemy’ Bible study I’m writing.  In lesson one we explored where Satan came from and in lesson two, we’re looking at the strategies he used against Eve.

Exercise complete 60,000 steps this week

Finish preserving the rest of our cabbage

Can tomatoes from our garden

Work on preserving potatoes

Work on preserving garlic

Start a jar of cider fire

Work on preserving onions

Harvest herbs

Finish touching up my mom’s table

Christmas in July Challenge:  complete 4 Santa Hat blocks

Hmmm, looking back on my to-do list for this week, it looks like a lot, but when I break it down into small increments, it’ll be very doable!

Until the next post,
