For today: Monday, October 5, 2014
Outside my window... overcast and expecting some rain today. The leaves on the mountain are golden and some of the trees have lost all of their leaves. We had a really chilly Sunday with early morning temperatures in the mid 30s~brrrr!
I am thinking... about how quickly time passes and that we should never take anything for granted. This is a lesson I keep learning about over and over again.
I am thankful... for our sweet home and family. God has blessed us richly, indeed
I am wearing... Aqua jammies, soft and pretty. I wish all my clothing was this comfortable!
I am creating... more floral arrangements and starting to sort old family photos into groups of people. I am hoping to do some scrap books for individual family members. I am thinking of using the vintage greeting cards to coordinate along with pictures of the people who sent them to us over the years. Mom left me quite the collection of photos and cards; might as well put them to a creative use.
I am going... no where today; just planning to vacuum and do some studying with Caleb. I am going to be spending a bit of the day watching him create and edit a video game he is working on in Unity. He is becoming very proficient with this program.
I am wondering... when I will ever feel like my old social self again. It has been at least two years since I really felt like dressing up and getting out there with people. I used to be very active in church and loved to go to services and sing in our choir; now we go only occasionally. Mostly because I have a hard time finding clothing that is comfortable enough and also due to some of my husband's current health issues with his legs and his feet. We are looking for solutions as we miss being with our church family. (PS~wish I could just wear my comfy old jammies to church~lol)
I am reading... still mostly magazines and my devotional books. I am thinking of starting a new book that was given to me by a friend. I will let you know more later...
I am hoping... to get some things together for a rummage sale that the youth at church are holding on October 18th.
I am learning... still working on some crochet and learning about video game editing with Caleb.
Around the house... peace and quiet for now as my hubby and son are still upstairs. They haven't even stirred this morning.
In the kitchen... planning to have pork chops for supper and maybe a good old apple crisp.
I am pondering... Reflecting on the sermon by Charles Stanley yesterday. Wondering about my spiritual gifts~what are the gifts God has given me to use for Him?
A favorite quote for today...Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness. Home is where the heart’s tears can dry at their own pace. ~Vernon Baker
One of my favorite things... apple cinnamon tea with honey on a chilly afternoon
A few plans for this week: Women's Bible Study tomorrow morning
A peek into one of my days from this past week... No current photos, but here is an old favorite I will share with you:
