Who Can Find A Virtuous Woman?

I'm feeling a little down. Sometimes it is just not a Proverbs 31 Woman kind of day. But, with God's Grace, tomorrow is another day...

It is less than an hour from our normal dinner time, and it would make sense to start cooking and stop blogging. But, I am having a not-so-creative moment. It is way past time to "riseth while it is yet night, and giveth meat to my household, and a portion to my maidens" so I'd better type fast and whip up dinner. (I still can't find those maidens, for the life of me!)

Never mind that I need to go to the grocery store because I have not "brought food from afar."

I haven't considered a field, much less bought one.

My candle was burning at both ends, so it went out pretty quick.

Clothing of tapestry, silk and purple? How about a cotton Hanes tee and some capri pants?

I would normally stretch out my hand to the poor, but since I haven't put my hands to the spindle, planted a vineyard, or brought food from a-near or afar, I don't have much to offer.

The one thing I can say is that my husband and child still arise up and call me blessed, I mean, Mom/Wife, ummm....that lady that stays on the laptop too long while we wait, hungry for dinner.

Now, where are those maidens!!!

P.S. After posting this, I went to the cupboard and just gave up. Unless Rachel Ray and McGyver showed up at my house, we just weren't going to eat.

So, I considereth Ruby Tuesday because my child praises their mac-n-cheese. En route, I reconsidereth-ed, (something like that) and we went to Chili's, being that Chili's actually lists the mac-n-cheese as "Kraft." I did openeth my mouth with wisdom and we went to the place afar that has Kraft mac-n-cheese, "OOOHH, MOMMY! You mean the powder kind?!"

Turns out, Chili's is sponsoring a rather awesome fundraiser for St. Jude's Hospital, so we did actually stretcheth out our hands by coloring a chili pepper and donating a dollar! (I am not making light of this; it was pretty cool! And, my daughter loved that she was doing something for another child.)

Chili's wasn't quite from afar, just a few miles; we stopped at Barnes and Noble, but I didn't find any flax or wool.

If you find one of them there maidens, send her my way. I haven't even started supper yet, so I could use her help.
