FOR TODAY March 5, 2012

Outside my window... the sun is awake and shining brightly making the frost on the trees sparkle.  It's beautiful.

I am thinking... that I am fearfully and wonderfully made to handle a lot of stress.

I am thankful... for the beauty of nature.

In the kitchen... a weekend of rest and relaxation is rearing it's ugly head today with life's clutter on the counter.  I see a screwdriver, daily planner, crayons, cd's, paintbrushes, an ipod, math book, story books and legos.

I am wearing... a very colorful ensemble.  Candy striped pajama pants with a red fleece pullover on top of a pink t-shirt.  I match, but in a clown sort of way.

I am creating... a space for books in my bedroom.  My husband and I repainted an old bookcase this weekend that will be a nice addition to our bedroom. 

I am going... to smile at a stranger today and have many tradesmen treking through the house.

I am wondering... how to eat organic without increasing the amount of money I spend on food.

I finished reading... A Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers.  It is a lovely fiction book and just what I needed to read after the collection of non-fiction that I've been reading.

I am hoping... to be able to solve some scheduling conflicts we have this week.

I am looking forward to... tomorrow's weather.  It's supposed to be 30 degrees warmer than today's high.

I am s-l-o-w-l-y learning... how to be self-less.  This is very challenging for me in many areas.

Around the house... pillows and blankets that are remnants of the fort the kids made yesterday.

I am pondering... giving up a few dreams.

A favorite quote for today... "I just love you".  ~Megan

One of my favorite things... letterboxing.

A few plans for the rest of the week: doctor appointment, bowling, Awana, meeting with our city's common council, training class for Milo and co-op.

A peek through the lens...
