For Today, Monday October 5th, 2009...
Outside my window... the trash is being picked up. I'm so grateful for trash collection. Can you even begin to imagine life without it??
I am thinking... that balance in life is a very hard thing to achieve long term. It seems, at least for me, that there is always adjustments to be made, distractions to be laid down and priorities to rearrange.
I am thankful for... a really understanding husband, really good friends and a wonderful church home. Oh and Maxalt. I'm really thankful for Maxalt when I get a migraine.
I am wearing... a very soft, purple knit dress over black capri leggings and it's chilly enough in here that I'm wearing boiled-wool clogs.
I am reading... a book that Julie C. loaned me that I must add to my library-- The Cure for a Troubled Heart by Ron Mehl. It is a devotional/meditation on Psalm 37.
It's just what I needed... and I had no idea I needed it and still aren't sure why I need it.
I am hoping... to feel/be less scattered this week. If you find my groove, can you please send it back to me?? :)
I am creating... nothing!!!! and it feels so good. The wedding invites are done and I am officially going back into retirement.
I designed the ad cards for the movie and I am working on the wesbite for that.
But what I really, really want to be doing is knitting or some other handy craft. Soon I hope...
I am praying... for details, for revival, for the Lord to come back, for Nana to hurry home...
Around the house... we are purging closets on Tuesday and then taking the girls clothes shopping on Wednesday. I am really clueless about staying on top of things like that.
From the kitchen... I like doing a crockpot meal on Mondays. For tonight I have a BBQ Beef Brisket in the slow-cooker for sandwiches later.
Thank you to all that left me suggestions last week.
You guys are such a blessing.
Here is the recipe I am using today...
Adrienne's Overnight Barbecued Beef
One of my favorite things...digital cameras! I can barely remember that I used to have to develop film.
A few plans for the rest of the week... Schooling the kiddos and getting everyone appropriate clothes to wear-- that fit.
Here is a picture thought I'm sharing with you...
