For Today…Monday, June 2, 2014
Outside My Window…It’s a rainy day. It’s another rainy day. It’s the fifth consecutive rainy day in a row. We’ve had in excess of four inches since the rain started falling. I stopped counting at the end of day two. I remember telling God our garden could really use some rain before it started…I wasn’t specific. :) I’m so glad we have mostly raised beds this year, because they drain well. Our plants won’t have super soggy roots. People have started making jokes about webbed feet and the humidity.
I am thinking…of the lyrics stuck in my head…”rainy days and Mondays always get me down”, but really they don’t. I love rainy days, and Monday is just another day to me…one I have the luxury of spending in our home with Bella doing whatever seems like the thing to do at the time. I’m thinking I’ve neglected my blog far too long once again…life gets busy.
Political pondering…The old saying “things can’t get any worse” has never rung true to me. I’ve seen it proven wrong too many times. Our country is in distress, and too many are unaware of the seriousness of our condition. We need a good old-fashioned gospel revival…we need God’s blessing to return to our land. Revival…one person at a time…
I am thankful for…a God who is faithful even when I am not so faithful. I’m thankful He hears us and answers prayer. I’m thankful He never gives up on us.
From the kitchen…I can smell the aroma of two chickens slow-cooking in the crockpot. They will become at least three meals and an ample supply of chicken broth when the cooking is complete. Tonight we will have chicken salad with meat so tender it will melt in our mouths.
In the garden…we have tomatoes, okra, green beans, squash, peppers, cucumbers, egg plant and lots and lots of herbs. So far everything is happy and healthy.
I am wearing…a pair of Eddie Bauer French terry capris and a camouflage tank top. Sheer comfort. Remember, I’m staying home today, and comfort is EVERYTHING.
I am creating…the last stitches in a RR that needs to be sent on its way to the next stitcher. I’ve got plans working in mind for a new project when I finish it. The past couple of months have been slow going in the creating zone unless you consider gardening creating. That’s where most of my energy has been expressed.
I am going…absolutely nowhere today, but that’s already been said.
I am reading…My bible and devotional and Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent Trilogy.
I am hoping…my dear husband has a good day at work.
I am hearing…Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and the sound of whirring fans.
I’m praying…For our country, our leaders (even though that is very hard sometimes), my husband, my family and friends.
Around the house…there is much to do. All the outside work has caused the house to be minimally tended. It’s a shame, but I can only do so much in a day. Super women who manage to do it all are driven in different way than I am. Life is too short…
One of my favorite things…a leisure visit with friends.
A verse for today…For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven. Psalm 119:89
A quote for today…“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” – Thomas Jefferson, 1871.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Tomorrow I will brave the world and go to the post office and bank. I may visit my favorite health food store
unless I can fight the temptation. Tomorrow I will go cast my vote for Chris McDaniel for the US senate. The rest of the week is open…sort of.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…My Bella.
Until next time…
What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. (Psalm 116:12-13)
