Saturday evening Scott and I were able to hang out with our good friends J & S (or as Scott likes to call them, "Jorbrina" lol). We spent the evening playing egyptian rat trap (my reflexs are not up to par for that game!), playing a hilarious game of apples to apples, and watched the movie Frequency. Goodness that movie had me on the edge of my seat. Silly messing with the past, screws things up everytime.
Sunday was filled with fellowship at church and burgers & friends all afternoon (we ate the burgers but not the friends). There isn't much better than warm weather, grilled burgers, & friends hanging out in the yard. What a blessing friends are!
Over the weekend I finally got around to making granola (I've been meaning to make granola for a few weeks now). I made a few changes in order to use what I had in the cupboards, so I left out the sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, added wheat germ, and replaced the raisins with craisins because I don't really like raisins. Plus Craisins make the granola look prettier :-)
This weekend has left me feeling blessed & refreshed. Especially after such a very long week. I hope this weeks speeds by. I am looking forward to Scott & I's 1 year wedding anniversary next weekend. I can't believe it has already been a year! Time flies. I hope your weekend was as relaxing and refreshing as mine was. What was your favorite thing about the weekend?

So my thesis statement for this blog is: A Blithe Spirit exists to purposefully find the blessings God gives in daily life.
I know that I don't stop often enough and really focus on what God has given me. I tend to worry and fret and remember all of the blah stuff from the day. Here I plan to praise God by thanking Him for his many blessings. Some days those blessings may be in the form of pictures, other days it may be a 'how-to' post, and other days it may just be musing on my blessings. Regardless of the form, I want this blog to be an uplifting and authentic representation of my blessed life. I hope that if anyone reads my words that they will come away with a renewed desire to see the blessings in their own lives and to give God praise for His many gifts.
p.s. I promise to never assault you with automatically playing music when you come visit my blog. You can hold me to it :-)
