For Today…Friday, March 18, 2011
Outside My Window…It’s a beautiful day! The sun is shining, The morning air is still cool for a little while. All is right on our few green acres.
I am thinking…about getting off this computer and getting busy around the house, but that will wait a little while longer. 🙂
From the learning room…not a lot is happening. I really need to grease the “learning” gears so they don’t freeze up. You know the old saying “use it or lose it”.
I am thankful for…a quiet morning and time to sip tea and spend a generous slice of time on the computer.
From the kitchen…I see light filtering in through the window over the sink.
I am wearing…a soft, cotton knit T and a well-worn denim skirt. It’s another no shoes needed morning.
I am creating…a knitted wool scarf a few stitches at a time.
I completed…a baby shower gift for my friend’s granddaughter…three burp cloths.
I am going…to stay home today! I love days I can stay home.
I am reading…My Bible and a few blog posts.
I am hoping…My dear husband gets well quickly. He has the flu and walking pneumonia.
I am hearing…FOX news…the news is mostly dismal. Japan’s disaster still boggles my mind and breaks my heart.
I am wondering…where my camera is. I haven’t seen it since shortly after getting my android phone. I’m beginning to REALLY miss it.
I’m praying…my dear husband will desire to quit smoking.
Around the house…It will be a quiet day. My dear husband is sleeping. Sick or not he must work for twelve hours tonight and tomorrow night.
A verse from my morning Bible study…The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook. Proverbs 18:3
A quotable quote…”A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t read.” ~ Mark Twain ~
A word for the day…expatriate – noun: a person who lives in a foreign country; also: a person who has renounced his or her native country.
One of my favorite things…a fine bone china teacup.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Today and tomorrow I will transplant herb plants and work around the house. I’ll also make a new batch of yogurt. Sunday morning I’ll go to church. When I get home from church it will be time to make a new batch of water kefir. If my dear husband is feeling well enough for me to break away I will spend the night with my mom Sunday night. It’s been far too long since we “spent”.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…A glorious outdoor bouquet.
Coming soon…my Spring Giveaway. I hope you will keep your eye out for it and get your name in the pot.
Until next time…
