FOR TODAY July 9, 2013

Outside my window...
sun, swimsuits and sparrows.

I am thinking... of the fun activities and action that we have been able to participate in all summer.  This week we are going to Lifest in Oshkosh, WI.

I am thankful... for small moments of rest and renewal throughout the busy-ness of summer.

In the kitchen... lots of green things.  Green leafy plants, green peas and green limeade.

I am wearing... shorts and t-shirt with bare feet.  It is hot and humid today!

I am creating... a letter to a very special child. 

I am going... to pickup my new glasses today and then go grocery shopping at several different places to take advantage of all the deals.

I am wondering... how long the construction will be on a street I frequent.  It is going to throw me for a loop until I can train my brain to choose a different access road home.

I am reading... three books simultaneously.  :)  the uncommon woman by Susie Larson is my summer book study with friends, The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.

I am hoping... the weather will stay nice for the rest of the week and weekend.

I am looking forward to... seeing my mom.  I haven't had good quality time with her in many months and sometimes a girl just has to enjoy her mom's company every now and then.

I am learning... to move freely in the mystery of who I am.

Around the house... our bags are unpacked from our weekend holiday and now I need to do laundry and prepare for Lifest.

I am pondering... excuses.  How often I make an excuse for my procrastination or unwillingness in any given situation.

A favorite quote for today... "...In Christ Jesus freedom from fear empowers us to let go of the desire to appear good, so that we can move freely in the mystery of who we really are." ~Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel.

One of my favorite things... sleeping in!  Was able to sleep in until 8am this morning!

A few plans for the rest of the week: enjoy the everyday errands this week.

A peek into my day...
Picking strawberries with the family never tasted so good!

  1. I haven't gotten to visit you in a while. You know, the busy - ness of summer! Sleeping in! Oh how wonderful! Even on weekends I jump up by 7 am! I just can't seem to sleep in on my days off when there is so much to do on the homestead, before it gets too hot! Then I rest by/in the pool in the afternoon! Hope you enjoy your trip to Lifest! Sounds like it will be an amazing event! All my favorites! Tobymac, Third Day! Mercy ME Oh my! I'm jealous! :)

  2. Visiting from Simple Woman. It is hot and humid here in Maryland too.
