So, for a little distraction, I whipped up some home-made BB cream:
The benefits of making my own BB cream in addition to simplifying the process of applying my make-up (one product in one easy step instead of six separate products in six separate steps) is that I can adjust the color until I get the perfect match. This I like. I'm all about simple and quick: Dinners, housework, personal grooming. I'm showered, dressed, and out the door within 20 minutes, tops. It's one of the obstacles I have in my prayer life, though. I tend to bring my make-it-quick attitude to that as well. It's one of my biggest challenges, to learn to savor the time I spend in prayer or quiet contemplation of God. I tend to rush it a lot of the time. But I'm working on it, and He knows that.
I feel bad about missing yesterday's Wednesday Hodgepodge, but I didn't get on-line at all. There was much gardening to do, which took almost the whole day. Then an episode or two of "Dexter" and that was pretty much it. I usually prepare my post on Tuesday, but this Tuesday was spent doing major de-cluttering around the house in preparation for our newest arrival, who will be joining the family this Saturday. Yes, we've lost our minds and decided to take on a new puppy. She's a Golden Lab, runt of the litter, and I'm told she has a sweet, mild temperament. Her main attraction was that she was FREE. Here's what she looks like:
We haven't told the cat yet...
