Our Sabbath

Every Saturday we take the day and relax!
Time is spent together as a family doing things we would not always do during the week because of other commitments. We spend time praying and reading the Bible together and individually, playing outside or in the house, go skating, visit family/friends ...basically we just have no plans and do not do any kind of work.

On Friday, I make a supper for Sabbath that can easily be heated or baked and make cold sandwiches for lunch. For Saturday breakfast we have cereal or heat up leftover oatmeal. This prep on Friday frees me up to be out of the kitchen on Saturday, a nice break even for me who likes cooking/baking!

Today was extra special because I went for a nice, brisk, cold walk with my eldest daughter, she is 14. It
really was a special time because we rarely get a chance to do something just the two of us and she is growing up so fast and so many things are happening in her little mind that it was nice to have that time to connect.

Today's Eats

  • Steel Cut Oats with raisins, craisins, pecans, cinnamon and a splash of almond milk.
  • Apple 
  • Whole Wheal wrap with hummus, lettuce, red pepper, zucchini, onions, avocado and cracked pepper, YUMMO!
  • Hot chocolate and 10 plain chips.
  • Chili and salad with a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and cracked pepper.

An all round fantastic day!
