Monday Musings

I learned 5 minutes ago that my 10 year old’s feet just surpassed the size of her 13 year old sister’s.  Sigh.

Just in case you haven’t heard me mention it before, planks are the DEVIL.  They are SO hard!!  When I complained on Facebook, my BFF (Mama Train) told me to flee the devil.  My mother, on the other hand, informed me that they were good for me.  Sigh.  Not sure what a plank is?  Check it out:



And before you say that doesn’t look too hard, try holding it for 60 seconds.  I. DIE.

Dress one of two that my mother-in-law is making for my daughter for “Beauty and the Beast” is done.  Here is her peasant dress:

BellePeasantTo say she’s excited and ready for rehearsals to begin is a HUGE understatement.  She posted a countdown picture on her Instagram feed this morning.

Our latest Praise and Harmony CD came in the mail this week!  My husband and I both were blessed to record on this album, and it sounds amazing, if I do say so myself!  You can purchase your copy HERE.  Also, this video was shared this week of one of the songs from the album.  So much fun!

I had a friend gift me a whole carton of plums this week from her mother’s plum tree!  It was so kind of her!  We made plum crunch, plum bread, and 6 jars of plum butter!  Yum!

We also spent Saturday morning working in the  yard.  I almost have the herb garden weed-free again, but there’s still a corner left to go.  It is SO hot and muggy out there!

Have a great week, friends!  STAY COOL!!
