I am thinking...about this image of Christ
I am thankful...for the cool mornings lately.
In the kitchen...beef stew, cornbread and some sort of dessert. a very simple meal for family and two visitors after vespers and Bible study tonight.
I am wearing...a soft purple scarf made from bamboo (!) given to me by my oldest sister
I am creating...peace in my home by decluttering as much as I can with four lovely children 'underfoot'
I am going...to make plans to travel & see the new family babies this summer
I am wondering...how the folks at Blimey Cow decide on the week's topic.
I am reading...Sink Reflections by Flylady and Screwtape Letters by C.S.Lewis- yes, I have both books multiple times.
I am hoping...to go to the big park day on Friday between preschool and ballet...it is only once a month and I have to 'socialize' those kids! Really, it is only I needing socialization
I am looking forward to...the Spring semester finishing in the middle of the month. I don't teach a lot, but it takes up a lot of space in my brain.
I am learning...to listen to uplifting podcasts while cleaning instead of political talk radio! baby steps to a more positive me!
Around the house...kids schooling, playing and hopefully helping me cook dinner a bit later- then- off to ballet!
A favorite quote for today..."I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it". - Anne Lamott
Some of my favorite things...rice cakes, dark chocolate, Irish breakfast tea, black trash bags for Goodwilling, Castle & Pysch on Hulu- even though I can always figure out the mystery before they do, my husband who seems to get that I am an extreme introvert, podcasts helping wean me off talk radio!
