FOR TODAY September 15, 2014
Outside my window... a gentle rain is falling making ripples in puddles and drip drops on the trees.
I am thinking... of the great horned owls my husband and I had the pleasure of observing the other night.
I am thankful... for candles that can chase the gray day out of the house and give it a cozy warm and wonderful smell throughout.
In the kitchen... leftover Mexican surprise and something for dinner. Hmmm, I'll have to give dinner more thought.
I am wearing... shorts, t-shirt and fleece pullover.
I am creating... butterfly snack bags for my trip to Burkina.
I am going... to put Mason down for a nap in a minute and then do a French lesson or two.
I am wondering... how to live every moment of every day, selfless.
I am reading... The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
I am hoping... life will slow down a wee bit so I can take inventory and catch my breath.
I am looking forward to... finishing all the preparation for my trip to Africa and leaving on a jet plane in a little over two weeks.
I am learning... what it means to be a fisher of men.
Around the house... sick kids, a lazy dog, a busy washing machine and clean dishes in the dishwasher.
I am pondering... the very slow and imperfect progress of maturing as a wife, mother and friend.
A favorite quote for today... "If you must err, do so on the side of audacity." ~from The Invention of Wings
One of my favorite things... free time to wander and take pictures.
A few plans for the rest of the week: finish lesson plans, grocery shop, put together a couple freezer meals, teach at co-op and take pictures.
A peek into my day...
One of the very first times she picked a book up and began reading on her own.
