Time for another The Simple Woman's Daybook!
Outside my window... it's a cool, crisp morning but the sun is shining!
I am thinking... about how I miss reading and writing. I haven't had much time for either lately and I'm having to be intentionally about getting back into it.
I am thankful.... . . for our family being in one place again. Daddy was on a business trip last week and Mommy (most especially) did not like that. I'm glad that he does not have to go away very often.
In the kitchen... there is food to eat. I'm just going to have to be creative in putting stuff together for the next day or so. ;)
I am wearing... "sweat pants" (not the 80's variety) and a t-shirt.
I am creating... a "lesson plan" of sorts to carry us through the Olympics which are set to start on Friday!
I am going... nowhere today.
I am wondering... why it is I can so quickly lose sight of what is really important.
I am reading... The Narnian: The Life and Imagination of C. S. Lewis. I'm not sure if I'm going to recommend it at this point - not because it's BAD but because it's redundant. So far anyway. We'll see. I'm still reading.
I am hoping... to decorate the house for the Olympics today.
I am looking forward to... having our family pictures taken later this week. I'm also simultaneously NOT looking forward to this. (I hate having my picture taken.)
I am learning... to keep my mouth shut. (I'm always learning to keep my mouth shut.)
Around the house... children are learning how to talk and how to make each other laugh.
I am pondering... the best way to make the S. Korean flag with construction paper.
A favorite quote for today...
"Courage, friends," came Prince Rillian's voice.
"Whether we live or die, Aslan will be our good Lord."
One of my favorite things... fellowship with good friends.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Haircut, church small group, family photos, OLYMPICS!
A peek into my day... I'm planning to keep things calm around here and prep for the Olympics (which, um, obviously are a focus) and we're also going to get started reading The Voyage of the Dawn Treader which is where Bookworm1 left on in the series. I love Narnia.
