Small Successes


Nicholas wanted to make cinnamon rolls after watching Paula Deen make them. Despite the fact that I am allergic to flour and I knew that making dough at O'dark thirty would mean I'd itch all day long, I agreed. The yeast wasn't the perkiest and we were still making those rolls at 3:00 in the afternoon, but when we finished, they were pretty darn good. Like all things Paula Deen, they called for way too much butter, but the butter in the icing is amazing, don't skimp there.. 

Danielle and I made great progress on our book. We had a quiet afternoon to collaborate together on the phone and we're both pretty excited about the writing we've done and the finished product we hope to share with you.

 I got a pedicure. This might not seem like a success, but I have a problem taking time out for such things. When three different friends suggested it would be a very good idea, I took the hint. It's a very pretty pedicure and I have Princess Pink toenails. That night, I dreamt that I fell asleep in the pedicure chair and was gone for two days and when I awoke, I was at the Birthing Inn.

Not sure what that means...

What are your successes this week? This is a great exercise in holding ourselves accountable and patting ourselves on the backs. Mothering and homemaking don't have built in performance reviews and bonuses. The  internet can be a source of support and encouragement. Let's encourage one another in our small successes.I'm very late to the party, but you can still share too at Faith and Family Live!
