Knackered. What a fun-sounding word for such an unpleasant state. And, what an appropriate Daily Prompt word for a Friday. I am most definitely knackered today. This has most definitely been a most knackering week. (Is that a word?)
Thank God the weekend has finally arrived. Literally. I am LITERALLY thanking God. I have had an extremely busy work week. My husband, bless his heart, has been working on a job with his brother that has been a nonstop barrage of problems. It has come to a blessed end today. And, I’ve had a lot on my mind the past couple of weeks, and that has certainly left me feeling knackered.
The thinking too much and worrying is the most tiresome of everything. It is something I seldom do. It tells us in the Bible time after time not to worry, not to be anxious. And, usually, I don’t. I have found in life that just rolling with the tide is best. I don’t know why I’m suddenly going against God’s word here and wasting any time, effort, and sleep worrying about the future. Especially since I can’t really pinpoint what it is I’m anxious about. I just feel…..unsettled.
Song of the Day

Book of the Day
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware. I was disappointed by this book. It was on so many must-read lists! I totally expected to be blown away by it. But, alas, I was not. It’s the story of Lo Blacklock, a journalist whose career has been pretty stagnant for a decade or so. She is finally given the assignment of a lifetime when she lands a trip on the maiden voyage of a luxury cruise ship destined for the Northern Lights. She almost immediately stumbles into a mystery after boarding, and her life is endangered when she reaches out for help. I was never really pulled in to the story line. The plot, though promising, was poorly executed. It wasn’t awful, but it certainly didn’t live up to all of they hype.
Recipe of the Day
I am going to do something a bit different here. Instead of posting a recipe that I have tried, I am going to ask a recipe question. I watch a lot of cooking shows on TV. I am quite obsessed with food. Often on these shows, I see chefs making flavored or infused butters. Have any of you tried this? What do you like to use them on? Do you have a favorite infused butter recipe? If so, please share your experiences with me! I would very much like to try to make my own…..
