For Today…March 23, 2009
Outside My Window…the sun is shining gloriously. Bird song fills the air…my little car is covered in pollen. Our chickens are content…Bubba, Maggie and Emma are soaking up the sunshine and barking at loud vehicles as they pass the house. All is right with our little corner of the world.
I am thinking…of all the trials our family and friends face today. Lily our youngest granddaughter is having a medical procedure this morning. A friend from church had emergency surgery in the wee hours this morning for appendacitis. My BIL is undergoing a hip replacement surgery…and my DH is at work…working in pain.
From the learning room…I see a newly adopted set of encyclopedias I claimed on Free Cycle. Later this week I will pass them on to my daughter for her students. They are not new, but they are in premium condition and are still full of useful information.
I am thankful for…life…present and everlasting.
From the kitchen…I will bake a cake in a few minutes for my DH per his request. He smoked his last cigarette yesterday. We are both hoping he is able to quit for good this time…probably me more than him. He thinks the sugar will help. I hope so.
I am wearing…my camo sweatskirt and a 3/4 sleeve red v-neck T. It’s brisk this morning. I imagine I’ll change by noon…
I am creating…tiny softee teddy bears for my California grands. I’ve got “plans” working in my mind for several other things, but I’ve not had an opportune time to get anything else started.
I am going…to stay home today.
I am reading…Still Christy by Catherine Marshall…and my Bible.
I am hoping…always hoping.
I am hearing…Glenn Beck.
Around the house…things are in decent shape considering this is Monday.
One of my favorite things…a garden in good order.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: On Wednesday my DH has pre-op to take care of. I’ll go with him. We’ll visit our friend who had surgery last night and most likely make a brief trip to Wally World to fill our water bottles. I will work in our garden every day unless rain moves in. I plan on delivering the encyclopedias to my DD’s classroom at some point, but I’m not sure which day.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…taken in my back yard. These tanks are bound for Iraq or Afghanistan…our soldiers are ever on my mind and in my prayers.
Until next time…
Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Isaiah 40:1
