Today, I've decided to post a little snapshot of life. Join along, if you'd like!
1.What I'm reading today:
My Bible...trying to read through it again this year.
"The Loveliness of Christ" by Samuel Rutherford... Short extracts from the letters of the great seventeenth- century Scottish Christian, Samuel Rutherford. ( This is a little book full of sparkling jewels to ponder!)
Magazines: Western Horseman, Beef Magazine, Homeschooling Magazines, Farm and Ranch Magazine
Bible Study- "With the Master; In Fullness of Joy" A Ladies Bible study on Philippians... We start this next week, so I'll let you know how it goes.
2. What I'm listening to in the truck:
"Hank the Cowdog"audio books by John Erickson. We are unabashedly huge fans of Hank at our house, and I'm not ashamed to tell you that my husband and I have listened to them and laughed many times when the kids weren't even driving with us. LOL!
3. What I'm loving in the kitchen:
Flour Sack Towels. I love them for so many reasons! They are large, thin, absorbent, and don't give off lint or fuzz when placing them over a rising loaf of bread dough. They're white so they can be bleached, and they're cheap...$5.49 for a pack of 5 at Walmart.
4. What I'm Loving in my Purse:
True Blue Spa Paraffin hand lotion from Bath and Body Works. My cousin bought me this for Christmas, and told me that it had the seal of approval from her husband who is a Dairyman. If it works for a guy who milks cows and is out in the elements all day in the cold Canadian winters, then by golly, I was going to give it a try! All I have to say is, I'm a believer! This stuff is doing wonders for my cracked, withered and chapped cowboy hands! It has Olive, Avocado, and Apricot oils along with vitamin E. It also has paraffin to lock in the moisture. Good stuff!
This is an oldie but a goodie! I have had an ongoing love affair with this CO Bigelow Ultra Mentha Lip Shine from Bath and Body Works for several years now, and in my humble opinion, it's the best of the best! It is refreshingly cool, and ultra minty with 2.3% Peppermint oil, and .2% Field Mint oil. If you wear this and kiss your sweetheart, he'll kiss you back! Guaranteed!

6. My Current Ringtone:
I change ringtones frequently. Here's the latest:
George Strait, "I can't see Texas from Here"....♪♫ I can't see Texas from here, no matter how I try, it makes me wanna die, so if you see me lookin' down, I'm tryin' not to show this frown, cuz..I can't see Texas from here...♪♫
It's a bit "out there" in terms of ringtones, but it embodies my great love of Texas and the fact that I'm far away from it....and it's classic George Strait. You've got to stick with the classics, man!
7. My newest iphone app:
Endomondo Sports Tracker
I can't take credit for this one. Our tech savvy friends told us about this. It tracks my jogging by GPS, and tells me distance, time, calories burned, elevation change, lap time, etc. etc. Bottom line: It was free, it's cool, it tells me if I've burned enough calories to eat a Blizzard at Dairy Queen, and it talks to me while I jog. 'Nuff said!
8. What crafts I'm working on:
Some simple Valentines cards using scraps of fabric sewn to card stock. I'll use them as inspiration for the young gals in our beginning 4H Sewing class who will be making their own cards very soon. Sewing into paper will help them learn control of their machine, while creating something cute that they can make for friends. I'm excited to see their artistic creativity come out in this, their first sewing meeting of the year. I want them to know that sewing isn't just about making curtains and pillowcases...it can be fun and creative too!
9. What my house smells like:
Right now, I'm melting Scentsy "Luna" in my warmer. It has a nice, soft scent. (I'm a candle fanatic and I change the scents in my house on a weekly basis. Good smelling candles and waxes are my weakness! LOL!)
10. The last thing I bought:
A new pair of jeans for my 10 year old son. He's outgrown every pair of Wranglers in his dresser. One of my biggest pet-peeves is seeing people with cowboy boots and high water jeans. It drives me nuts! It's a fashion disaster! Every few months, I have to rescue the boy from embarrassment by buying him longer pants. The damage to my wallet never ends!
How about you? What's going on in your life right now? What are your current favorite things? I'd love to read about them in your blog, or in the comments section of mine!
