For Today…Monday, November 3, 2008
Outside My Window…the sun is shining brightly and the temperature is in the 40’s. To my delight it’s a beautiful fall day.
I am thinking…of and praying about tomorrow’s election. I know beyond a doubt God is in control.
I am thankful for…the luxury of being a stay-at-home, wife and homemaker and the husband who wants it this way.
From the kitchen…I hear the whir of my dishwasher. I forgot to start it last night. I’m in the process of cleaning the inside of my refrigerator…one shelf at a time. Later I’ll begin to prepare our evening meal…something with chicken, but I’ve not decided what.
I am wearing…a long, gray sweatskirt and a hot pink, long sleeved T-top. I’ve got Deerfoam slippers on this morning to cushion my steps…I broke the third toe on my right foot Saturday evening, and it’s sorely painful.
I am creating…a baby gift for a dear young woman from church, a bag for my mom, and a clean house.
I am going…to stay at home today if all goes according to my plan.
I am reading…I intended to begin reading Always By My Side by Jim Nantz this week, but I’ve read only my Bible. I’ve been too tired in the evening to read and very preoccupied with the upcoming election coverage.
I am hoping…there is not a long line at our polling place tomorrow.
I am hearing…only the whir of the dishwasher and an occasional bark from one of our dogs. I’ve decided not to listen to talk radio this morning. The relative quiet is peaceful and much needed.
Around the house…there is much to do. Soon I will hang our sheets to dry on the line outside, finish cleaning the inside of our refrigerator, sweep and mop or vacuum all the floors in the main part of our house and clean the master bathroom. That should keep me busy for a while.
One of my favorite things…is a roaring fire in the fireplace.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: I’m taking part in a sewing stash reduction “contest”. I hope to get in some sewing. Tomorrow my DH and I will go cast our votes for president and local races. Friday I’ll have to run errands and take care of business.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…
Until next time…
