What I've been up to

I haven't blogged much lately so I wanted to give an update on what I've been doing. A while back ago, I decided to watch a lot less television. The result - I'm educating myself on how to make candles and soaps. I bought all of my supplies. As soon as my wicks come in the mail, I'm going to make some candles out of coconut shells.

I distressed a table. I've decorated three rooms in a house and I have two more to go. I bought some picture frames and then the boys and I went to the beach to gather up a boatload of seashells to decorate them. I've taken them out for ice cream a few times. 

I desperately want to be a better mother and I'm praying for guidance and patience in this area. I'm trying to teach my boys the value of integrity. I have a lot of questions about discipline, but I have come to know and believe that love and discipline go hand in hand.

Ideally, I want to be more disciplined myself. I have a lot going on. I am thinking of ordering some bee hives and raising bees. I like the idea of self sufficiency but a lot of times I am just as busy as one of the bees that I want to raise.

I still want to train for that half marathon and I still want to work on new music. Maybe I just need to rest I get tired thinking of all of the things that I want to do.

I pray a lot but I need to read God's word more. I haven't written down much of anything, but I am hoping that will change too. Because I feel stronger and better when I write. Writing keeps things real and humble.
And I am still going to order that cotton candy machine!
