Plans and Ziti

The days go by quickly don't they? It seems like yesterday was Christmas. In fact, it is already January 7th and classes start back up next week. Who was it that said God laughs when we start making plans??? Well, whoever it was is probably right. This week I had it all planned out - I was going to get everything sparkling clean, get in all the workouts I wanted, have time every day to just spend with Dan, and get to bed and wake up on time every day.... Even if God isn't laughing right now, I am! How did I ever think things would go according to that perfect plan? (o:

As it stands, my apartment is messy, we stayed up late last night and woke up late this morning.
Kitchen and Livingroom: not too bad...
Bedroom: terrible because we shoved everything from the livingroom into it last night before guests came over. (o: Anyone want to guess what I'm doing today and tomorrow?

Anyways, we had friends over last night and I made a new recipe. Baked Ziti with Meatballs. De-lish. Here is the recipe: Yummy Recipe Here!

I should have taken a picture of it last night but I didn't have time. Maybe I'll have leftovers today for lunch. (o:

Today's verse is from (you guessed it) Jeremiah. Today it is 7:27, "When you tell them all this, they will not listen to you; when you call to them, they will not answer."  I hate when people don't listen to me - especially when I'm either pouring my heart out to them or giving them instructions. Every good teacher desires to be heard the first time I suppose. But this verse made a connection with me because it made me think - do I really take time to listen to God? Jeremiah is pretty much all about God's people ignoring what He has to say. Am I any better than them? Take some time today to simply sit and listen. I tried this morning and it's way harder than you think!

Christmas isn't over yet, it seems. Here are some of my pictures from today...
