Sunday, day of rest!

Here is a picture of my sweet grandson Oliver on his first birthday.  He has the prettiest blue eyes like his daddy.  We love him so much.


 

Here is our Oliver on a rocking horse his other grandma got for him at a yard sale.  I love my daughter's in laws.  They are so much like Hubs and I.  I love that she would pick up something like this at a yard sale.  Isn't it sweet.

Yesterday, hubs and I and our two daughters and the grand-kids all went to Lil sis's new pool and we had a blast.  Schmills especially had a good time.  We stayed for a couple of hours and then came home.

We also really cleaned the garage yesterday and it is so nice right now I just want to stay out there.  But we had a little reprieve from the heat.  It was only about 80 yesterday morning, don't worry by the time we left Lil sis's it had climbed to 100.  

We have regrinds who needed to store freezers as they had sold tier property and have not been able to purchase a new place yet. They moved them in late yesterday afternoon, so we really needed to get the garage cleaned up and organized.

It was a lovely Saturday, other than they were out of donuts at the store.  So I settled for pastries.

 Today, we are having two missionaries over for dinner.  Only 2!  We are having baked pork chops, garlic mash potatoes, corn on the cob, squash, popovers, and brownies with cream cheese frosting and strawberry ice cream. But right now I am going to go take a nap!

Is Sunday a day of rest for you or just a regular day of the week? Do you honor the Sabbath or a Sabbath?  I am not judging at all, just wondering?  I find whether you are doing it for religious purposes or not, taking one day a week and just trying to really keep it more peaceful helps with my life.

Have a restful and peaceful Sabbath.

  2. Glad you had a good day! I have been purposely trying to get back to taking Sunday as a Sabbath day and a day of rest. Today the kids and I have been to church and that is about it. The kids have spent the day playing and they watched a movie, while I blogged, took a nap in the recliner and made a peach cobbler with peaches we picked yesterday because I wanted to. Cleaning and stressful stuff can wait until tomorrow.

    1. That is right. Take one day a week to just shut down most nonsense.

  3. Happy Birthday, Oliver! (He's so cute!) Sounds like you've had a good day. Pork chops and all that other good stuff sounds delicious! Sunday is my day of rest, but I want to refine it...spend more time actually resting and focusing on the Lord. Have a great week ahead and sweet blessings, my friend!

    1. I think the Sabbath is important. I know when I honor it, I feel better and my week goes better.

  4. What a cute baby on a very cute rocking horse.

    Day of rest here, more or less. There is of course always meal making, but most of the time I spend it just doing project work.

    God bless.

  6. Your menu sounds fabulous! And, such a cute baby. :)

    I typically try to find one weekend day where I'm more relaxed than the other. It depends on kid activities. I prefer Sunday, as it gives me more of a chance to settle down ahead of Monday, but sometimes it's reversed. I always try to start the day as productive as possible (a workout, and a few chores), as I'm typically pretty tired by the late afternoon.

    1. I am sure your Mondays are very full. Trying to get a little more relaxing on Sunday is a good thing for you, if you can get it!

  7. Aww what a cutie! Looks like he had a fun birthday! Love the rocking horse and wagon.
    Glad you had a good weekend!
    Our Sundays are more relaxed, although we do what is always needed such as cooking, washing dishes etc.

  10. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
