Fairy Hair, The Girls, and Hitting the Mark

I’ve had a drone stuck in my hair before, but I’ve never had a fairy stuck in my hair… until yesterday.

Jimmy, Sadie, and I were driving home from the hospital for my hematologist appointment and I felt something weird in my hair. Turns out Sadie wanted to give me a fairy sticker from her reusable sticker set.

Fairy hair aside, the hematologist appointment went well. I’m going to have five IV iron infusions over the next few weeks. After the appointment, Jimmy went back to work and Niva had a husky friend over.

Since Runah, Niva, and Sadie are all girls, I’m always referring to the trio as “the girls.” Two of the three girls caught and killed a bird in the yard. I think you can guess which two 😉

I also worked on an Etsy brownie order, and then practiced archery with my new bow and arrows! We set up a cardboard box in the yard and I finally hit it! Poor Jimmy thought something was wrong when I called him. Nope, I just called to (very excitedly) tell him I hit the target 😂

The Christian life is a lot like archery. We need to practice in order to hit the target. Sometimes we don’t hit the mark, but we can’t give up. We just have to collect our arrows and keep trying. Philippians 3:13-14 reminds me of that!

Our God is a God of love and forgiveness and he doesn’t expect perfection. What a relief! He just wants us to try our best to hit the target. Sorry for the deep/random archery thoughts, but I have bows and arrows on my brain lately 😊

Last Minute and the Way She Sees Things

Friday was a busy day for Braid Bakery! A local customer texted me in the morning and asked if I could make 100 chocolate covered Oreos… for pickup that afternoon.

She was hosting a community garage sale through her real estate agency and wanted the decorations and colors on the Oreos to match her agency’s colors.

The request came at a good time because I was just about to drop Sadie off at a gymnastics camp. I got Sadie settled in at gymnastics and then drove home and got to work! (more…)
