FOR TODAY – September 22, 2008

Outside my Window…blue skies, gentle breezes and fall-like temperatures.  Grass that needs mowing, tree branches that need clearing away and a garden that needs to be “turned.”

I am thinking…that there’s so much to be done today.  A week away from home has it’s price…

I am thankful for…the refuge of my mother-in-law’s home after the storm.  For time to read, knit and play with the children.  For the stroll down memory lane.  For the workers who repaired the roof, gutter and flashing.  For the guys who cleared away the largest part of the fallen tree…

From the kitchen…a nearly completely empty refrigerator.  A freezer that needs to be emptied.  Nothing much that is salvageable…

From the learning room…I’m painting a few of these at a time.  Thank you, Jessica, for the inspiration!  I was going to attempt to create little felt clothing for our “Alphabet of Saints” figures, but really like the simplicity of the painted ones…

I am creating…a pair of alpaca leg-warmers and painting a gazillion little wooden dolls…

I am going…to be working hard all day…

I am wearing…a brown micro-suede skirt, brown clogs, rusty-red t-shirt, cream cardigan, hair down.

I am reading…Oh, my goodness!!  I’ve been reading so much this week, but have fallen in love with A Haystack Full of Needles by Alice Gunther.  Tears, smiles and good deal of hope thanks to this precious book…

I am hoping…to pray more, worry less and laugh out loud a whole lot more…

I am hearing…silence.  The occasional footstep upon the stairs.  The children are surprisingly subdued…

Around the house…bags to unpack, laundry to wash…work, work, work…

One of my favorite things…running water.  I don’t mind living without electricity.  Living without running water, no flushing toilets…ugghhhh!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…prepare for our first day of school.  Next Monday, on Michaelmas!  We will most surely celebrate!!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you

knitting + reading = a very good morning
