Outside my window…It is getting dark. We missed seeing the Northern Lights last night. I think being in town made it impossible to see them, and I was too tired to stay up late. There is still lots of snow on the ground, and it is cold.
I am thinking…about a lot of things–how to keep things simple in the busyness of life.
I am thankful…for my family, for God’s provision for us, and for parents who love the Lord.
In the kitchen…the dishwasher runs, and the counters are pretty clean. Dinner was Lazy Shepherd’s Pie–basically mince and tatties, to put it the Scottish way.
I am wearing…blue jeans, an old long-sleeved periwinkle coloured top, and my Mom’s soft navy fleece.
I am creating…a mess in the house as I try to do some spring cleaning, and getting rid of stuff.
I am going…nowhere tonight.
I am wondering…how my dear sister in law is getting along with taking care of the house after my Mother-in-Law’s passing.
I am reading…The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher. Actually I am listening to the audio version while I cross-stitch.
I am hoping…that I can finish my current project in the next couple of days.
I am looking forward to…working on another cross-stitch project.
I am learning…very slowly, that you can find time to do things you like if you waste less time on the computer.
Around the house…Belle is sitting with her computer, there are small piles on the floor and on my desk, and my cross-stitch frame is sitting in my favourite chair, waiting for me to pick it up again.
I am pondering …thoughts on giving a “word in season”–something I aspire to, but fail miserably at most of the time.
A favourite quote for today…” The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.” Isaiah 50:4
One of my favourite things…being with my family.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Possibly baking bread, making waffle mix, going to hear organ music in a local church tomorrow night, and taking Belle to her babysitting job tomorrow afternoon, then house-cleaning on Saturday, and getting ready for Sunday.
