We survived the week. Touch-and-go at a few points, but we made it. Not as productive as I had hoped, but still fairly productive.
More plans have changed, this time for my postpartum recovery period in June/July. God is working on me…but at least He is doing it now so that hopefully He will have time to soften my heart and attitude. More reliance on His Grace. More tough day playlist.
It has been a busy week here on the blog. I am arranging some guest bloggers for after baby comes. If you are interested please let me know. I have what I normally blog about, but there are a lot of things that fit under those umbrellas, and I am open to other ideas as well.
Sunday was Earth Day. I try to do what I can to be a good steward of the earth. No, it is not our home, but God has put us in charge of it, so we should be good stewards. In most cases, doing things more naturally is also better for our bodies, which we are also stewards of as temples of the Holy Spirit. I shared about some plants and ways to clean the air in your home.
I also shared one of my favorite easy beauty recipes, a nice honey sugar scrub.
The spring bucket list is coming along nicely.
We went to a new museum/historic house and learn about cooking and life in the 18th century. The children thought that the outhouse was the greatest thing ever, and our oldest was rather upset that he couldn’t use it….
We have been enjoying the sunshine and picking flowers a lot since the weather has been so nice.
I was hoping to join the ball game that the children had with dad and their cousins this past weekend, but helping out in the kitchen at a family gathering got in the way. We will try again later.
We have had a few picnics in the backyard, and I hope to take one to a local park one weekend.
The children think hunting for clovers is great. Thankfully our backyard has several plants that put up four leaved ones, and one that puts out five leaved ones.
I am hoping that our raised bed will go in this week so we can get a proper garden going. Unfortunately our seedlings have died…
It has been a rather exciting week on Timeless Mama. I set a new daily views record, and then broke it in the same weekend. That newest record was broken yesterday. Not huge numbers for bloggers in general, but it’s about 16 times my usual “good day” views!
On to the linkup!
The Aprons & Pearls Link-up
“If you want to experience consistent victory and see it played out in the atmosphere of your home, continually look for areas in which the Holy Spirit is leading to greater obedience, and ask God what your part is in making that a reality.
This is a Christ-based weekly link-up to encourage others in their walks, and help Christian bloggers get their work out there.
Leave links to posts that are:
Homemaking/natural living/parenting/Christian walk related.
This could be natural living posts, recipes, cleaning, parenting, devotions, lessons, homeschool, Christian living, mentoring, modesty, gardening, homemade, diy, marriage, relationships, frugality, etc.
- Link directly to your post (not to your homepage).
- Please, no marketing posts (Plexus, Jamberry, MLM Oils or the like). Affiliate links to relevant items okay.
- While I personally do not see anything wrong with a glass of wine every once in a while, please do not include alcoholic beverage recipes. It is a stumbling block to many, and I am not comfortable including them. They will be deleted.
- Feel free to include old posts that need some love, relevant link ups and giveaways.
- Leave as many as you like.
- Link back to the Aprons & Pearls Linkup, either using the button below or a text link on either your post, sidebar, or link party page.
- Use the hashtag #apronspearls when posting on social media so we can find your posts as well!
- I would like to encourage you to browse through the links and take time to visit some and comment when lead.
The link-up will run Tuesday at 6am-Sunday at 5pm. Please come back through Sunday and check out some of the posts!
I have made a Pinterest Board for the posts that you link-up, feel free to send me a message over on pinterest to be added. You can click here to check out the board.
As time allows I will pin some links from the linkup (unless you have already added them to the board), share them on social media and comment.
Please note: View expressed in linkedup posts do not necessarily reflect my own, and I reserve the right to delete inappropriate posts.
Now, to the link-up! Just click on the blue button below to add your link, and to check out all of the links left by others! Links are sorted randomly, so no need to worry if you join us late in the game!
