Five Things Friday

This may be my new go to post for Fridays. I'm usually pretty tuckered by the end of the week and my inspiration for writing awesome blog posts is pretty much non-existent. Oh and sorry that this post is late getting up, it's been one of those days.

1. I had a cold last weekend and I was in desperate need for some chicken soup. Good thing I have world's best recipe for a nice healthy soup that is sure to cure any sickness. Not really, but it is pretty good soup.


2. Tuesday was a rough day for me and I was having a really hard time letting go of stress. I decided that I should take some time out to curl up on the front porch with a cup of tea, my Bible and my journal.


3. Dan often (pretty much daily) cuddles Mia on the floor but I never do. The other day I decided to change that and we had a nice little cuddle time. Although I'm pretty sure I won't be making this a regular occurrence, since she's kind of heavy and I got a little squished.


4. I finally made beet pickles! I decided that I would just keep putting it off if I didn't buckle down and do it, so I picked the beets last night and pickled them this morning. Go me!


5. Today is a melancholy day for me, for a few reasons. Today was Dustin's due date, which means we should have a child who would be turning 4 today. I can't believe it has already been 4 years. It is also the day two years ago that we found out Daylin's heart stopped beating. So basically, today sucks and I'm really feeling it. I have just felt grumpy and sad since I woke up, with a bit of anger thrown in there. And I don't even have any cookies.

Two years ago tomorrow
I hope everyone else is having a better Friday than me and that you all enjoy the lovely fall weather we are having. See you next week!

    1. Thanks Kate. The double whammy anniversary does suck. And I am feeling better from my cold, I fought it hard and I won!

  4. Sorry about those sad anniversaries. I'm anticipating lots of them in the future, after our son died this spring. You just have to learn to live life differently.

    1. I am so sorry to hear that you lost your son. Sometimes I hate that life involves loss. I agree though that you have to learn to live life differently, one day at a time.
