FOR TODAY Monday, February 23, 2009...
Outside my window...The sun is blazing and the wind is blowing so that my screen rattles in it’s frame. I see little sticks on the ground that we will have to gather up to add to the “stick pile”. I see a board the children left on the ground after playing some sort of make-believe game.
I am thinking...that the sunshine feels good on my neck as it shines on me.
I am thankful for...the news that I will be a Grandmother late in the year.
From the learning rooms...a tour of Europe and a look at the Church in the year 1000 before we head into the Norman Invasion next week. I love my Truthquest!
From the kitchen...Whole Wheat Cinnamon-Raisin bread rising & yellow split pea & sausage soup for lunch.
I am wearing... blue jeans and a bright pink blouse with ruffles, socks and my ancient black slides.
I am creating...still working on that quilt for Crista, must finish it!!!
I am going...nowhere outside of my domain today except to pick up hubby from work.
I am reading... The Beauty of Modesty by David and Diane Vaughan
I am hoping...to get the house ready for company tonight.
I am hearing...Isaac putting away dishes and singing and Shayna working on memory verses.
Around the house...typical Monday things, cleaning up after Sunday, backlog of laundry, just trying to get things ship-shape for the week. On top of that, a visitor or three for dinner expected.
One of my favorite things...my transferware bowls (Friendly Village), for our morning oatmeal.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Getting on a new schedule, back to early rising and a new thing-breakfast & devotions with Papa before he is off to work.
On Friday & Saturday I’m going to the quiltshow. I’m so looking forward to it (have been all year)!
Here is picture thought I am sharing... My favorite from last year’s show:
