Outside My Window …




Do you remember Cubbie?  If not, you can read about her here,  here, here and here.  If you recall (or if you just read about her) you know that we (my husband, especially) really don’t want any more animals.  But, alas, it seems that God is not finished with us.  He not only set us a stray cat, but is now preparing to bless our lives with KITTENS.  Seriously, this cat looks like she ate a football.  The kids are thrilled.  My husband?  Not so much!

I am thinking… Of asking my husband if we can keep the kittens.  ;)

I am thankful…

That my children are getting the chance to know their great-grandmother


From the learning rooms… Taking a break for the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Exodus 12:14-16, Acts 12:3, Luke 2:41; Matthew 26:17.)

From the kitchen…

My son, the monkey:


I am going… to have an interesting week.  We *may* be taking my friends six children for a few days.  She just had her seventh baby and needs some time to rest.  If we do have them, we’ll have ELEVEN children here… ages 1-13!  Anyone want to pray for me?!  ;)

I am reading…the Lightroom forums on Flickr.  I need all the help I can get!

I am praying… for health for my step-mom, encouragement for my brother, fertility for my friend, for families in Italy who have lost so much in the earthquakes, and for a friend who contacted me to request prayer… among other things.  :)

I am hearing… the baby, singing to himself.

Around the house… Guess what I found RIGHT AFTER we celebrated Passover?


These are cans of cat food.  But not just any cat food.  These are the cans of cat food that I MEANT to feed to our cats before Passover.  Because they have yeast in them.  But guess who forgot to feed them to her cats?  And so, once again, we find leaven in our house during the feast of unleavened bread.  *Sigh*  Oh well.  At least we didn’t accidentally eat it!  ;)

One of my favorite things…

Little girls at play



A few plans for the rest of the week…Not sure yet, but if we end up with eleven kids in the house, I promise you I’ll be blogging all about it!

Here is picture thought I am sharing…

    Well, the eleven kids at once could be good practice I suppose…

    I’m just trying to figure out how you’re going to manage blogging with eleven munchkins all around. I think you’ll be forgiven for taking a brief blogging break should the madness ensue. (But I should probably also say that is the most incredibly thoughtful thing, to offer to take in your friends children while she recovers.)

    Lol about the cat. I had a cat when I was young, and my mom was very allergic to cats so it was an outside cat. Yeah, the cat got pregnant, mom felt sorry for it, and let it move in the house. She endured the allergies for several weeks while the litter of eight kittens grew. That cat was the best mouse-catcher- maybe that would help soften your hubby. Rodents are undesireable, and a bit of cat food is a small price to pay to be rodent free.

      I didn’t mean I’d be bloging DURING their visit. I meant AFTER. Maybe even several days after. Who knows how long it will take for me to recover. ;) Actually, I think it will be really fun – especially for our kids. And really, after you have five what’s six more? :)
      Our outdoor cat is a pretty good mouser, too. Loves to leave them on the back porch where our kids can step on them. Not much of a selling point. :)

    I’ll be praying as best as I can for you with eleve children! I don’t know if I’m able to pray but I’ll try for sure.
    Thanks for remembering Italy, we need all help possible :)

    Well, your mama cat sure is a pretty creature, and I suppose it will be educational for your children to learn all about how a cat takes care of kittens. I hope everything works out with a minimum loss of sanity for your poor husband.
