Looking Forward With New Plans

It's been a quiet week here on the homestead. Part of the reason for this is because I'm still dealing with fatigue. However, I have great news in this direction. My wonderful doctor referred me to have a sleep study done because she heard my symptoms and thinks something is going on in that direction. Once she explained it, I'm thinking she's right! I'm hoping so, anyway, because when I'm tired, I'm very unproductive! 

I know I shared about our trip to Williams on Monday. I forgot to take many pictures (I really hate when I do that!) but I did get an individual picture of everyone sitting at the table at the restaurant. My hubby....

My oldest son...

My youngest son...

There is a picture of me my son took, but I'm afraid I don't approve of that picture, so it will not be shown here! LOL  Next time I take a trip (a rare occurrence, for sure!), I will make sure I take more pictures! 

I have mostly read this week (look for upcoming book reviews) and I did finish the stitching of the scissor holder I showed you last week. Now I just need to put it all together and then I will show it in all it's glory. :) I really love it now that I'm done. I just have to stitch the two bobs that go along with it and I'll have a wonderful new project to hold little items like needles, scissors and such. 

We've been blessed with some cooling rain over the last two days. The fire that took those firemen, is now 100% contained. Many homes were lost, but there was no greater loss that those lives. I am happy that the fire is out, however. It was such a horrible fire and so many people have no home to go back to. Such devastation in so many ways. 

I have been praying about what direction the Lord wants me to go. I'm definitely hearing from Him and I'm seeing that He is moving me into a new direction. It's rather exciting, actually, even though it's hard to let go of the old things. My feeling is that God knows best. He sees the future and He definitely knows what I should be doing and where I should be. Relying on my own "wisdom" is never good. I am in His hands and have such a desire to be obedient to His callings on my life!

We plan to have a quiet weekend. My oldest son will work a 24 hour shift tomorrow but will be home on Sunday. We are in the process of planning to move things around in our home but we will have to wait to move the big things until he's home for a few days. I'm excited about our plans but also dreading the hard work of moving furniture and other items around. No, I don't move furniture anymore, but even doing the other things is hard. It will be worth it in the end though!

Many blessings ~ Julie


  1. Aww, Julie! I really thought I would see your photo too.
    Yes, His plans are always best!
    Why are you moving so much around at home?

  2. Is the Dr going to check for Sleep Apnea? My hubby and I both have that and sleep with a CPAP machine. It makes a world of difference in combating that fatigue. Not to mention, sleep apnea untreated cause tons of other health issues and is dangerous.


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
