Part two of my day the past month has been an hour of scripture study. My study had been sporadic and somewhat lacking in nourishment, and then at church we had a great lesson from the President Hunter manual about Scripture Study that very much inspired me and was just what I was looking for. Two things he said 1) an hour is ideal and 2) you gotta set aside a fixed time. That #2 what what I really needed. So I tried it out a few days and figured out that for now my best time for study is as soon as Owen goes down for his morning nap. On the days I get up for the early walks, I might struggle and be a bit tired, so I'll pause and take a break, plus I'll usually take a nap when Owen goes down for his afternoon nap. If I'm exhausted and it doesn't appear that he's going down for a nap any time soon, I'll ask the kids to baby sit while I crash for a few.
On the days I don't do a morning walk, I exercise in the basement lifting weights in Bill Phillips Body for Life style. Today Abi and Natalie joined me. I think they are cute. Work it, girls!
So that's a little of that - and that is what my summer days are like - walk, scriptures, nap, and try to clean a little if I can. Haven't been doing very good in that area - but the dishes aren't going anywhere... I know cause I ignore them at night and wish they'll just go away, but no, there they are patiently waiting for me in the morning. What's the hurry? :) We're enjoying our summer.
