I love Saturdays!

I'm a little afraid this might be one of the last nice Saturdays of the year (weather-wise) so we're going to pack it full of Saturday goodness I hope.

It will include (not necessarily in this order)

*coffee/blogging/scrapping early in the morning while a few of the family are still asleep;
*sweet cereal for breakfast (something that we reserve as a treat for the mornings we ALL together for breakfast meal {Trev works early during the week})
*mowing the lawn (I had to swath it last week and was wishing for a goat so it needs to be done again before it gets out of hand, or we get any more rain)
*cleaning house (not my favourite but I love it when it's done)
*scrapbooking (I'm finishing up a Heritage album for a friend that's turning out to be very large!)
*football (Go Bombers!)
*canning (not an every-Saturday occurance, but I have buckets and buckets of tomatoes in and out of my freezer just begging to be turned into tomato sauce {pizza & pasta sauce}, canned tomatoes {for chilis} and salsa). I also happen to have The Best Sauce recipe. It's the Schellenberg Family Women's recipe - passed down for at least 3 generations that I know of. If you ever need it - shoot me an email :)
*shuttling kids (one has a birthday party, one still needs indoor shoes I think, one needs underarmour for football in October)

I'm sure there's more that will come up but this is nearly my ideal Saturday - home with family for the most part, getting some stuff done, a bit of time to play and devotions & a great cup of coffee to start it all off with.

And for any of you who scrapbook or make cards.....I'm thinking of merging my 2 blogs one of these days, but in the mean time - you may be interested in a blog hop that's coming up Oct. 1. If you've never done a blog hop - it's pretty simple....start at Blog #1, enjoy - post a comment, and then link to blog #2, etc, etc.....it should bring you right back around to the beginning, or to the my Stamp BOX blog. There's usually (and this time is no exception) prizes to be won for commenting on everyone's blogs. I'm going to venture a guess that this prize will be a stamp set from my Stamp BOX :)

I'll leave you with this - a favourite verse of mine for years and years, but recently it's been taking on new meaning for me every time I read it:

Jeremiah 29:11-14a
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the LORD

sounds like a perfect Saturday :-) And I think you're right - that might have been our last warm Saturday this year :-(
