Getting a new routine!

Since I’m a morning person (mostly out of survival – sometimes the days I have almost kill me!) I’ve got to get a new morning plan of attack (garden put in).  lately, I’ve just been getting up and taking care of the house but since I’ve got the new garden almost put in (Mrs. Mac – you’re my hero) I’ve got to actually PLAN when I’m going to water it. 

This is my morning plan (which makes it all the more important that I go to bed on time – 9:30).

Eat a banana or a serving of some kind of fruit (get my body moving!)
Time with Jesus!
Water the yard
            8 pickling cukes
            8 basil
            6 Cilantro
            3 flat leaf parsely
            3 cherry tomatoes
            7 beefsteak (tomato)
            4 early girls (tomato)
            4 Bonny something or others (tomato)
            4 yellow squash
            3 zucchini
            8 celery

That’s all that I’ve gotten planted so far. Tonight/tomorrow I am going to try to get the peppers & onions planted! This gardening is a lot of work (and this is just the beginning!!) I’m excited because I hope I can share my garden with a local soup kitchen that I serve with friends!  I love the thought of VERY fresh yummy veggies for them!

Then after I get this all watered, I need to get on the elliptical, and then shower, and get on with the day!  Let’s hope I can get the normal stuff like laundry, dishwasher, and getting dinner in crockpot, when necessary, done too!

It’s a good thing I’m a morning person, or I’d be sunk!

Also going to try to get some evening watering in and weeding!

Yay for summer!

I'm trying to be a Proverbs 31 woman (because I'm not a wife yet!), I have quite figured out how to get it all done, but I know starting out my day with Jesus is the best! 

Proverbs 31:10-31

A wife of noble character who can find? 

    She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value. 
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands. 
14 She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
    she provides food for her family
    and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
    and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy. 
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue. 
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
