FOR TODAY – April 20, 2009

Outside my Window…A weepy gray sky…lots of rain and wind on the way.  After last night’s deluge, there’s a moat around this castle…

I am thinking…that we had a nice, long Easter break.  It’s time to get back to work!

I am thankful for…this day and every day the Lord has given.  May I live it well!

From the kitchen…espresso and monkey bread.  Dinner this evening:  something with turkey.  I have a lot of leftovers from this Sabbath’s feast…

In our school room…school’s in.  I feel so very disorganized and uninspired.  Ah, well…school work is work.  If it was all fun, it would be play!

I am creating…I’ve been crocheting quite a bit.  I never thought I’d enjoy crochet.  I’ve always been a bit of a knitting “snob!”  Since discovering just how quickly one can complete I project, I’m hooked…pun intended!

I am going…to allow this day to unfold as it will, trusting in God that all is happening according to His will for my life…

I am wearing…flannel jammies…it’s really early, the rest of my family is sleeping…including hubby who worked a late shift last night…

I am reading…Finishing He Leadeth Me.  I can’t recommend this book enough.  And the Golden Legend of Young Saints.  I’ll be posting a review shortly for The Catholic Company.

I am hoping…that our first day back at school will be a productive one…

I am hearing…the sound of the children…footsteps slowly padding down the stairs.  The day begins…

Around the house…We’ve been keeping the downstairs in fairly decent order.  Now, if I could just get caught up on the laundry!

One of my favorite things…chickens.  Ours will be here the first week of May!  Looks like we’re getting six…

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…school, school, school, school, school.  And laundry.  Next week, my two oldest sons will receive the sacrament of Confirmation according to the Traditional Rite.  An historic occasion for our Diocese…and a long-awaited event in the lives of these two boys!

Here are a few picture thoughts I am sharing with you

When your shoes fall off in the creek…

…the only thing left to do is this:

Have a blessed week!
