COLOR ME RESTED!

That's what Saturday's should be for right?  Rest and relaxing.  However, they have always been used for going about being busy!  I picture the Bible time women who worked to prepare for the Sabbath.  All of the cooking was done ahead.  I think of the pioneer women who worked every day to prepare the food they needed and to keep their homes satisfactorily clean to prevent illnesses, etc.  I'm not sure Saturday has ever been intended as a day to rest and relax.  So taking a day out like I am today to have fun online and read might seem wasteful to some.  I'm guessing that we all can do both!  I know I have rested and relaxed, both in the body and in my mind.  I also know that I have taken care of some details around my home, inside and out . . . And some very important cleaning tasks in the corners of my mind . . . So I think the Lord is pleased.

My final Spring Fling post and challenge is rather colorful . . .

Meaning that for the rest of the day and into the evening indulge yourself with color . . . That may be painting, crafting, sewing, knitting, but for me it will be simpler . . . Adult coloring books.  I am hooked on them and so is the world it seems.  I plan to relax with my pencils and books this evening.

Take the challenge:

Paint, design or color a rainbow . . .


     Paint, design or color a garden of flowers . . .

                Put together a spring wreath using only supplies you have around the home . . .

                              Arrange a centerpiece big or small with an Easter theme . . .

                                         
Winner of this challenge will be selected from the picture you send me that highlights how you spent your evening and what you designed!!!   Simple or complicated - all are equally welcome!

Prize will be a brand new box of Crayola Colored Pencils!!!
