Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Waffle Day

Most of you would refer to this day as Saturday, but in our family it's become known as Waffle Day (used to be pancake day until I got my wonderful waffle maker for my 2008 birthday!). Every Friday night, unless we're on vacation or something else comes up, I prepare my overnight waffle mix. It's just a recipe that came with the waffle iron...it sits over night, hence the name. It's always a tedious task that I do not look forward to. I'm not sure why I consider those 10 minutes to be tedious, but I do....something about all the steps, I guess. However, it is always worth it when we get up, cook the bacon, eggs, and waffles, then sit down to eat. Delicious! We add different fruits or chocolate chips to our mix...so we had blueberry waffles and chocolate chip waffles today. They melt in your mouth, and Karl said this morning, "I think this is the best waffle I ever ate." His was a mixture of both. Yeah, it was worth the 10 minutes....

It's rainy and cold here today so we're staying indoors, playing the Wii, drinking coffee while blogging, and generally being lazy. It's fun sometimes to just do nothing. We do have some chores to do so don't think we're actually doing nothing, just not going out to do any activities. We will go to church tonight.
