Outside my window... My magnolia tree is in full bloom, dropping petals on the lawn.
I am thinking... About hungry kids and homeless people. Every time I wrap up in a warm blanket or eat good food.
I am thankful for... My husband and a marriage that gets sweeter by the year.
From the learning rooms... a ladybug, golf-ball "treasures," learning about us: our bodies, health, families, culture. Guppies and too-tall grass in our 'island ecosystem.'
From the kitchen... Nachos, grading papers...I wish I was making homemade shepherd's pie and the best snickerdoodles. Hmmm... maybe I will.
I am wearing... a long light-weight brown skirt edged in brown cotton lace and eyelet, and a pale pink tiny-flowered cotton blouse. I love pink and brown.
I am creating... a new habit: I've washed the dishes for 21 days in a row! Yay me!
I am going... to stay home.
I am reading... Psalms.
I am hoping... to make life more beautiful for people in my day.
I am hearing... the sound of no children.
Around the house...cleaning out a drawer (I hate to throw anything away, even if I haven't used it in 4 years!) Crunching on the carpet...I guess it's time to vacuum. Hey, it's a process. At least I'm washing the dishes!
One of my favorite things... Energy. And the images that the word, 'shimmer' conjures up.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
- Spend more time in prayer/Bible reading.
- Bake bread.
- Another shooting range outing with J.
