Quiet Time and Blessings

This morning I woke to a house with no heat and wanted to stay under a blanket. I came downstairs and my devotional was gone. I choose to not waste time looking for it. I knew that I would get distracted so I just picked up a book. 
 Then I opened the book to a page without thinking about it. 
This morning I read about adoption. Something that has been on my mind a lot recently. It was the perfect devotional. Then as I was praying I noticed a paper sticking out of the bottom. I opened the paper and it was from my prayer partner-mentor-friend 16 years ago. 
I am always glad I make time but today I was totally blessed. 
What has blessed you this week? What are you reading during your quiet time?

Poor Mama

Please don't laugh but I get sad when my chickens lay a double yoker. To me it is like delivering a huge baby. When I walk in the coop and see a girl in the nesting box I want to go over and rub her back and tell her it is okay. 

Don't even ask about the tears I shed while my girl was off getting bred. I know I need help.

How to Peel a Potato

This trick really works. Boil your potatoes with the skin on, instantly put potatoes in ice water for 5 seconds or longer if you have sensitive hands. Then pick up and the skin will pull right off.
No more worrying about cutting your hand with a potato peeler.  We only needed a couple of potatoes so this worked great.
