photo update.

My husband and I in front of our newly painted bedroom wall.

The room almost finished for our middle son.

What happens when you complain too much to dad about how hard it is to hold the ice pack on your boo-boo. Hee hee.

Now he is all "recovered"

and finally (if you are super-squeamish don't scroll down) but we caught three mice ( not blind mice!) in our pantry. My husband has "gone to war" with them and is currently at the home-improvement store buying more ammo aka glue traps. Here is a photo of one of the guilty parties. Unfortunately he is rather cute... but destructive and dirty. I have been wiping down everything with a tea tree oil soap solution. On a funnier note my little dog for some reason thinks that when we catch a mouse he is the one who actually did it and walks around with his head held high and his tail in tha air. We all pat him and say "Good job!" It is rather funny.




* here is pipsqueak* First photo I ever took of a live mouse. He doesn't look much like "mickey" does he?

one pot cooking= less dishes.

I have been trying to cut down on the number of dishes I have had to wash. I was pretty good at doing this when we lived in the rv but since I now have a "normal stove" I have noticed that I spend much time doing dishes. And this isn't my favourite chore! So this past week I have gone back to my one pot cooking. Tonight this is what I made for supper. Broccoli, Macaroni and cheese and Beef sausages. This is how I did it: First I put a large pot of water on to boil- into that I dumped a bag of frozen broccoli and the sausages. I let this cook a while. After has cooked until almost done I dumped in three boxes of mac and cheese. When macaroni is cooked I drain into colander. - put the sausages on a plate and then dump the broccoli mac mixture back in. I follow the mac and cheese directions except I add some sour cream to make it more creamy and flavorful. I also sprinkle with seasoning. Serve. So In one pot I was able to hit all the food groups and best of all ONE POT TO WASH! Yesterday I made a one pot meal of beans rice and chicken. So what can you make in one pot? Be creative!

What do you do when a friend hurts you?

What if the friend is a christian? What if she isn't? Is it the same?
