Yesterday I was thinking it would be a good time for me to come out of my cocoon. But then I guess subconsciously I felt I needed some spice to my life to share and I almost (...practically) cut the tip of my big toe off while making cultured milk smoothies for the guys. (((SIGH))) How you might ask? Well, I was finished making them and even poured them into the glasses and when I was tilting up the food processor container and the blade fell out and got my toe. Did I feel DUMB....yes! So off to the emergency Handsome took me to get stitches. It took 6 or 7 stitches to repair my poor toe. That is the kind of excitement I can do with out for sure, uggghhh.
These are the shoes I sure could use right now to protect my toe while I am cooking for the next week or two.
Ohhh how I have seemed to be in a cocoon stage right now. I have so many things to share but at the same time I am not ready to start posting them. Right now I seem to be praying, thinking, contemplating, then thinking some more. I am still figuring out and solidifying more of my new way of eating. It is going very well and I am getting geared up to sharing. I also plan to get going back on my de-cluttering starting this Saturday. I might even speed it up for two weeks. Starting Monday the kids and I are on a two week spring break. ((yippee!!)) So I will do my best to share.
Also there is good news! My frozen shoulder is not frozen anymore. I would say that it is 98% better to almost 100%. I am able to knit, write, type and so much more. I am a very happy camper. My chiropractor was very happy and amazed at how quickly I got better. Between prayer ( Thank you!) and T-tapp exercises ( which I never had to stop other than the first week) it rehabilitated my shoulder, PTL. All the stretches that my chiropractor told me to do was in the t-tapp basic workout, isn't that cool?
If I haven't been around as much lately please be patient with me. This cocoon is about to open. [o=
Have you ever been called out of busy-ness? That is exactly where the Lord has and is leading me right now. I have for quite a few years been making crafts with my hands and selling them each fall and winter. It started with beading jewelry, then moved into candles and then to fudge and specialty juice making ( rhubarb juice and rhubarb-raspberry juice). It has helped me help invest in things for the kitchen, my craft making supplies and this last year my camera. It has been very nice but it has costed. Each year I work like a maniac and it took away a lot of time from my home and family. The last few months every time I would start thinking about at what I had to do this year plus the supplies I needed to get for the craft fairs was to stressing me out. That is when the Lord gently kept nudging me to be still and rest in Him. Rest in Him and not worry about what I had to do to provide for some extra things. He wants me to rest in that even if I didn't do all these extra things He would provide a way for me. I have been feeling that my attention has been so busy with other things rather than where I was suppose to be. That is... loving and serving my family with my full attention. I need to put more of my energy in to our little homeschool and take care of my home and family...better. So for now and probably till I am done homeschooling my boys. I won't be doing craft fairs.
