So one of my many goals this year is to walk\run 14 miles a week. This may not seem like much but it is for me. I have arthritis and a hip ...

Tea Filters ) to hold my ingredients. In a 1/2 gallon jar I use 1/2 tsp of dried peppermint, 1/4 tsp powdered ginger, 1/4 tsp dried thyme, 1/4 tsp dried rosemary, 1-2 tbs honey, 2tsp lemon juice. I hang the filter off the side of the jar ( they are really long filters) and screw the ring on it. I then pour boiling water in the jar and steep for 3 - 5 minuets. It all depends on how strong you want it. Sometimes I add more honey in my cup for a sweeter flavor.
I have set several goals for this year and blogging at least weekly is one of them. So often I say I'm going to be an active blogger again but life gets so busy and its always the things we enjoy that seem to drop off the list of must do's. There have been some great changes though and hopefully this is a goal I can keep . I miss the bloggy world :/ We still don't have internet at our place. Mainly because only thing available is a mobile hotspot or satellite internet and I am overly cautious of that 2 year contract . So for now its reading and blogging by my phone or at the library; which is where I am today. By the way, I think they forgot to turn off the AC in here...it is FREEZING! Anyway, be well and blessings til we meet again!

For the second time in little over a week we have more snow! After battling freezing rain, ice and snow last week; we woke up to more snow today. We have about 4" here and other places have less or more. I had 3 interviews scheduled today but had to reschedule 2. I'm sure I'll have to change the last one also. The goal is to stay warm :) Blessings!

So thankful for my family who stuck by me and bore the hardships and for God giving me the strength and courage to do it. Now I can have time to blog again :) Blessings! - Nikki

With the heat outside, we have been working on de-cluttering our house inside. Today we are finishing up our "desk switch a roo". BabyGirl bought a new to her desk at a local thrift store yesterday. She needed more space for her editing. She gave her old desk to Roosie who needed more space for her drawing. Roosie gave me her old desk for me to use in the kitchen since I needed less space than the big table I was using to study on. Now I think we are all content.
Last week I worked in the kitchen trying to rearrange things so that it felt more open. I got rid of one of my storage shelves and moved some others around. I think I have it just about perfect. The kitchen seems bigger and brighter. I still have to switch around some things in the cabinets but I will work on that Monday.
Toodles used my shelving unit I took from the kitchen to organize his stuff on the carport. By recycling items this week we have managed to meet a lot of needs for each other.
My favorite part of this de-clutter and rearranging is that now my Mamaw's antique metal cabinet is used solely in housing our baking ingredients and pans. I used mason jars and post-it labels to create storage bins for things like chocolate chips, coconut and baking powder. It looks so nice and neat and it is easy to find things in a hurry now. Is anyone else doing any de-c;uttering this summer? Blessing!
