Brief recap of our life currently: On Saturday, we had our church picnic. It was cold and windy. I was so thankful that I brought a hat and cardigan for Lil' J. My daughter did NOT want to wear her jacket. Most of the evening I let her get her way, but about 30 minutes before leaving, I firmly told her, "Put it on." She obeyed, but as she put it on, she said, "I'm not cold."

At the picnic, one of the games involved a pair of disguise glasses. Charis was given a pair of glasses after the picnic. Yesterday before church, I had fun putting them on my son and taking a picture of the little cutie.

Thinking about how I have a love-hate relationship with my to do list. To do lists are helpful and keep me on track, but when I don't accomplish everything on them, I feel like I have let down my family. Even though, I completed 75% of my to do list last week, I still feel like a failure. I hate feeling like I don't measure up. Thankfully, my husband tries to be supportive and tells me, "It's fine. You can't do everything."

Reading nothing new myself, but I'm looking for suggestions on what to read next. Keep in mind, I have a baby who is still not sleeping through the night, so I prefer simpler books.

Watching new seasons of NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Castle, and Bones. After my children go to bed, I usually watch one show a night and knit at the same time. Sometimes, it's the only knitting I'm able to get accomplished during the day.

Linking up at Joyful Life.
