Working Willingly: My plans for the week, meal Ideas and a peek at my DIY Rosette Headband

When the kids are sick…

it seems as if I don’t get much done but that’s alright. In my 18 years as a mom I’ve learned to drop all of my goals and expectations when my kids are sick.

My youngest took sick with a fever and wheezing last Wednesday at school and I’ve had to take him to the pediatrician twice already.

Then my 6th grader was experiencing some pain so I had to take him to the pediatrician. Now are three of my children are sick with cold and flu symptoms.

So we will most likely extend their vacation time an additional day to see if they are feeling better by Wednesday.

Even with the kids being sick, I was able to work on some  Do-It-Yourself, How-To projects and do some organizing. I went through my files and organized things a bit. I then worked on some hair candy.

I’ve been meaning to try my hand at making Rossettes and was able to make three of them which I’ll share soon. In the meantime here’s a peek at one of them.

I even attached a piece of fabric in the back to make them interchangeable with different color headbands. This partcilaur Rosette goes well with a white, yellow, green, black, gray or aqua blue headband. I’ll show you how easy it is to switch them out in a later post.

Here are some of my goals for this week.

1.) FAITH:

  • Bible Reading: Judges 6:11-24, Judges 6:25-40, Mark 10:17-31, Philippians 3:12-21, Joshua 24:14-28, Genesis 14:1-16, Matthew 26:36-46
  • Prayer: Monday – Sunday
  1. – Prayer with and for my husband
  2. – Prayer with and for my children
  3. – Intercessory prayer for my family and others
  4. -Prayer request from church and blog readers

Don’t forget to head over to the prayer forum and leave your prayer needs.
