I am thinking ... about the coming week and the things we've scheduled to do.
I am thankful ... that the weather has been so nice so I can take my morning walks. Walking the dog early has been a blessing to me ... and those who know me might know how much I've always loathed mornings. So this is a good change even though I struggle to get up and get started.
One of my favorite things ... spending time at my in-laws. We had a fantastic visit on Saturday and they've kept R-girl for a few days, which is a blessing.
I am wearing ... still in my walking clothes. I'm going to do this post then get showered and dressed for the day. It's laundry day, so a load is begun.
I am creating ... plans for our home. I hope to start going through one box an evening in the basement to clear out areas and making that space more pleasant.
I am listening to ... the Center For Lit team talk about Flannery O'Connor and wondering if her stories would be something my husband would enjoy. I think they're likely darker than my preferences.
I am hoping ... to be rid of Sandy's cone of shame in a few hours. She's driving me crazy with that thing.
I am learning ... the differences between trial and temptation according to James and then how to resist temptation - and the results of that. Excellent sermon last night.
In my kitchen ... I sent the actual cooking outside Friday night and haven't really cooked since.
In the school room ... we've kept it tidy for two weeks of school! This is a first:
Post Script ... Even though I'm terrible about this kind of project, I'm watching NaturePal Exchange closely because I think it would be worth the time investment for my children this fall.
Shared Quote ... "God knows better." Pastor Jason Kirklin - as something of a mental statement to use in resisting temptation.
A moment from my day ... Celebrating Grammy's birthday. Love.
Closing Notes: I've been thinking about prejudice and judging and people and people groups and old books and dissmissiveness. I hope to write about it this week.
Linking up with The Simple Woman.
