FOR TODAY Monday February 27, 2012 ...
Outside my window... it is sunny and "warm" (supposed to be in the 50s today!)
I am thinking... how wonderful it is to have a husband who wants to take the children geocaching and is willing to let me stay home to get some things done in peace and quiet.
I am thankful... that we ordained and installed two new elders yesterday! The Lord has been good to our church in calling gifted men.
In the kitchen... I made lamb on Saturday and beef yesterday. Both were pretty good :)
I am wearing... sweat pants and Buckeye tshirt. I'm going to clean bathrooms when I'm done with this.
I am creating... I started a needlepoint to work on while listening to lectures from the Society for Classical Learning. So far I've listened to three and they were all excellent.
I am going... to the library and Whole Foods later.
I am wondering... at God's fulfilling of Old Testament prophecy ... such a beautiful thing!
I am reading... The Roots of American Order with Cindy's Book Club.
I am hoping... I keep up with it as I've really enjoyed the first two chapters.
I am looking forward to... a few quiet hours.
I am learning... about social order and political order and how they work together.
Around the house... we've an extra dog ... we're dogsitting my brother and sister-in-law's beagle. Entertaining to say the least.
I am pondering... prayer.
A favorite quote for today... "The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest." ~Thomas Moore
One of my favorite things... having laundry all washed and put away. I should work to make it happen more regularly.
A few plans for the rest of the week... are to have a quieter week. I need to sign the children up for t-ball/baseball and I have a retreat committee meeting. Bible Study on Thursday. We might take a slower week of school, too. We all need something of a break.
A peek into my day...
