In enjoying the winter spirit we did snow-themed art projects, made chicken stock and chicken noodle soup and cornbread, we had a Scrabble game going, and were snug at home enjoying David's day off.
The weekend was packed with an overnight trip down south, two birthday parties, a big 49ers game, church, and cow-buying (to keep in Albany, because no matter how cute I think it would be for the kids and I to walk our cow around the neighborhood, I think she'll be happier in a pasture with other farm animal friends).
Somehow the days can be so full, to the point where we don't even want to look at our calendar and be reminded of the commitments we have, but then we get a restful, rejuvenating day like yesterday and we're fit to tackle the upcoming week. Your Sabbath doesn't have to be on Sunday, you know.

I hope you can find your time to rest this week.
