craft sabbath saturday

I've been waiting for the interwebs all day ya'll.
Finally, it has arrived.
Praise Jesus.

Today my craft sabbath was on the green side.
I'm taking the (non-existent) spring indoors.

Cheap indoor plants from Wal-Mart.
Exotic Angel Plants: Sansevieria and Pilea

Adorable white pots from Jo-Anns.
70% off. (oh-yeahs)

Honeybadger likes.
Honeybadger wants to eat the plant in the goldfish pot.
Dully (sp?) noted.

Let's hope I keep these greens alive.

AND since I'm showing pictures of my home, I may as well show you some *for real* pictures of my home from today.
Have I told you I'm a messy cook?
And just messy, in general, at times.
(I tell myself it's the artsy side of me).

Maybe your house is always neat, orderly and proper.
Mine is not.
Want to see?

This is me while cooking.

Take a closer look.
Milk out. Green beans all thawing on the counter.
Too many utensils.

I am totally killing this succulent.

This butter is so not in a butter dish.

I don't even know where to begin with this table. Ugh.

This potato bag is homeless. (Still sitting here 5 hours later).

This counter is a hot mess.

I leave a lot of cabinet doors open.

Potting soil on the kitchen floor?

I don't even know what those little grains of grossness are.

But you know what? That's okay. I'm good. For some odd reason, today I am feeling in my own skin.

Today I am feeling okay with showing the world a bit of my messiness.

I think too often I am not okay in my own skin. In my own house. In my own life.
I think too often I try to portray myself as something that I'm not. As "put together." As "good." As "organized/on the ball/planned out/figured out/all of the above."

But you know what? I'm not really like that at all.

All that I really am is loved, blessed, and cared for by my Creator. I am His and today that is enough.

Happy weekending!

This was a very timely post because my kitchen looks like yours, maybe worse...and you know what? I'm in bed. Not cleaning. Because I'm tired. And that's ok :). Love you friend, and your messiness too!
