As I look outside my window:
It looks really cold from where I sit. I dread having to go out for two errands that must be completed today. I haven’t seen the deer in my yard recently, though there are tracks in the front yard snow.
Right now I am:
Coughing my head off. The infection and fever are gone, but this crud lingers and is making me hoarse. On week of sucking on cough drops and Robitussin. I am also trying to be quiet as my husband is sleeping, since he is working the overnight shift this week.
Thinking and pondering:
About the church service yesterday and where the Pastor is leading us. See yesterday’s post for the message notes if interested.
On my bedside table:
My Bible. No less than 8 library books. Finance, quilting, cooking, and a political thriller. I also picked up a copy of Rick Warren’s 40 Days of Purpose for a buck at the library’s used book sale!
On my tv:
I keep it off during the day, I relish the quiet. My husband turned on some old movie to fall asleep to, and that tv is still playing in the back room. There are taped episodes of The Big Bang Theory, How Its Made, and The Pioneer Woman to be watched.
Playing on the radio:
No music playing either, enjoying the quiet.
On the menu for this week:
Monday –Pasta night (I keep this night constant weekly so I have little stress at the start of the week)
Tuesday – Hamburger steaks and french fries.
Wednesday – Soup and Sandwiches.
Thursday –Chicken and roasted potatoes.
Friday – Pizza at Pastors.
Saturday – Something in the crock pot…maybe a roast
Sunday – ??? I just can’t think that far ahead right now.
On my to do list:
Laundry as always – Ironing (yuck)
Putting the manger scene in the basement. Got the figures packed away but left the wooden stable sitting on the table all week.
Declutter my sons’ t-shirt drawer. It is so full, he has trouble getting it all the way closed.
What I am creating:
A winter snowy-themed table runner. All silver, ice blue, and swirls.
My simple pleasure:
Eating away at my Toblerone bar I got in my stocking, one peak a day only.
Lesson learned the past week:
There are worse things in life than what I face. There are families in worse places than I am. I am blessed!
Looking around the house:
There are still Christmas boxes and toys scattered in the living room, I haven’t made the kids take them to their rooms yet. Our family desk is a total mess. I need some kind of organization system for all these papers and disks laying on top. I can see that my daughter did not vacuum yesterday.
From the camera “nothing new loaded this week”
MY CAR! LORD, please, touch my little van and let it keep running on this battery and tires. We just can’t afford to replace either this month.
Special request for another mom-of-a-rebelling-teen. Keep asking God to intercede with my dear friend who is struggling to find peace in her home. Very concerned about my father’s wife, she has a chronic condition that is worsening, and he is watching another wife slowly decline in front of his eyes. Our Pastor and our church family, to just explode in the community and service.
Favorite Verse this month: John 14:2 & 3 KJV “In my Fathers house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and recieve you unto myself: that where I am, there ye may be also.”
