It’s time for another edition of Just an Ordinary Day, where I share the happenings of a day in my life.
It began as a typical Friday morning. Breakfast on Fridays is usually pancakes or French toast, a detour from the usual oatmeal/cereal/toast rotation during the previous days.
What wasn’t so typical was that I made the pancakes by myself. Usually, my kids are eager helpers in the kitchen, especially on pancake day. But on this day, most of them were sleeping in. Strange. What happened to all my early risers?
Well, there were two, who were up with me that morning.
During breakfast, we went over our Bible memory verse. With the arrival of our baby and taking a break from our regular homeschool schedule, I’ve fallen off the habit of going over our memory verses, so we’re trying to get back into the practice again. “… train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.” (1 Timothy 4:7-8)
Since we’re still not in school mode, the kids and I are enjoying the extended free time. This day being the opening day of the highly-anticipated Minion movie, I had to explain to the kids that even though “everyone” else is watching the movie, we never go on opening day because of the crowds. Not to mention paying for admission to the theater for our big family usually means an early withdrawal from our retirement accounts. Even without a movie night in their near future, minions were still very much on their minds.
Speaking of minions, I found myself looking like one of these yellow creatures. After some excessive rubbing to relieve my itchy allergy eyes, I noticed a huge fluid pocket in my left eye. Let’s just say I freaked out. And when I came to my senses, I googled it. I think I had chemosis, irritating my eye from all the rubbing. I tried all the home remedies and prayed it would go back to normal by the evening since we were expecting company over. By the afternoon, my eyes were still red but at least I looked less minion-like.
We had invited the families from our Bible study group for a Friday night ice cream social. So, I assigned the kids to hospitality prep duty, cleaning up just the main areas of the house.
We had such a great time with our dear friends that I neglected to take any photos of our fun evening. It wasn’t until after the last guest left that I snapped the photo below of my boys, dancing on our table. We don’t have any outdoor furniture, but the night was so nice that we just moved our indoor dining table out. Added some stringed lights for some ambiance and voila!
How did you spend your day?
