I'll come and visit you and read about your homemaking week!! :) and you can go to Crystal's Blog here who started the Wednesday Snap Shot HERE

So Far This Week I have also used my Spiralizer and made tons of spiralized veggies which 3/4s are in the freezer to be used over the next couple of weeks - yum :). 

I have also started a bible reading plan with a group on facebook and we are going through the book of 1 John at the moment which is such fun plus we are reading through a book called "How to study the bible" - I have yet to receive mine in the post which will hopefully arrive by the end of this week along with a couple of Christian Women's magazines I have ordered too.

I have also made a card and put in the post cards and pressies for birthdays at the beginning of this month.

On My To-Do List is to do some much needed housework at some point, hoping the hoover won't scare my kitten too much. Plus I intend making some menu plans for the coming weeks

My goals for this week are:

To lose at least 3lbs in weight for Slimming World next week. 
Be more consistent with my bible reading
Read and study Psalm 1 to go through with a friend next Wednesday
To not hide myself away to much at home which I can so easily do.

Projects I'm Working On I plan on working on putting together a "War Journal" this is a series of journals inside what is called a Traveller's Notebook which I shall "pretty up" and make my own with various scriptures and stickers etc. This is the only project I am working on at the moment.

Today's Weather  -1 which it has been for most of the day. it has been sunny near enough all day but with a hard frost on the ground and bitterly cold

The View from where I am sitting: I am facing my  prayer wall which has all kinds of prayers posted :)

What I'm Reading. I am still reading Beauty for Ashes from Joyce Meyer and this is a brilliant book for women. The book is about receiving emotional healing from all kinds of areas that may be needed during your life. It is a good book and one I hope to come back to time and time again. 

I am also reading and studying my bible which is good and though I missed yesterday's reading I am going to make sure that I keep up on this on a daily basis.

What I'm Listening To. My cat moving around on the windowsill and the quiet gentle hum of my laptop. Otherwise you can hear a pin drop in my apartment lol

Something Frugal I've Done This Week. I peeled lots of veggies and added these to a ziploc bag which is in my freezer waiting for me to make vegetable stock at some point in the next few weeks :)

Fitness for the Week. I still have not started walking yet as i said I was going to but I will be I can assure you for definite and this week too hopefully :)

Weight Loss:  Well I started slimming world today and I have 74lbs to lose. I weighed in at 228lbs  which is the heaviest I have ever been so I do plan on losing this weight this year and I was so upset when I got weighed today at SW so I need to do something about it. Yep way to go forward for sure..............

Every Blessing,

vegetables and more vegetables!

Here is a bag and a half of vegetable peelings from using the spiralizer today. These bags are in the freezer ready for me to add more peelings next time and then I will make vegetable stock which should make quite a lot.

I have used my spiralizer for the first time today and have made a bag of courgette (zucchini) spaghetti which is in the fridge and will last about four days.

The other bags of mixed vegetables I have spiralized and grated as well and put these in the freezer ready to make wholesome meals with - so looking forward to my new way of eating vegetables :)


Every Blessing,

Happy New Year
