For Today...Tuesday, April 20, 2010
Outside my window...Beautiful sunshine on an absolutely gorgeous spring day!
I am thinking...about upcoming school plans for the whole family.
I am thankful for...prayer support and an end in sight to Doug’s frequent jury duty summons (today should be his last day!).
I am wearing...jeans, a short sleeve brown pullover, sandals, and (amazingly for this time of year) a jacket!! I got so chilly earlier – in the middle of the afternoon, nonetheless – that I had to put on a jacket! That rarely happens in April for this hot-natured momma!
I am creating...a split slip for the summer months.
I am remembering...the fun of the morning – actually getting to see the shuttle's trail in the sky as it flew over Arkansas, hearing the sonic booms, and then watching the actual landing on tv.
I am going...to get started on some active school planning for the fall. Soon, very, very soon.
I am reading...Friendship for Grownups by Lisa Whelchel.
I am hearing...the kids playing happily in the back; their music playing (sounds like Veggies), and the beautiful music of my wind chimes floating in through the open windows.
On my mind...the prayer needs of quite a few friends facing various challenges, both long-term and short-term.
From the learning rooms...the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis & Clark & Sacajawea; growing beans and corn; lines & line segments.
Noticing that...God sends little confirmations just when we need them.
From the kitchen...a great need for menu planning. A very great need!
Around the house...a bit behind on laundry. Otherwise, fresh air from being able to open windows!
One of my favorite things...the whole family sharing in a common excitement.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Gideon's pastor appreciation dinner Thursday night and a trip to Monroe on Saturday. Otherwise, not much – and I like it that way.
