FOR TODAY – October 5, 2009

Outside my Window….a blush of pink tingeing a cloudless blue sky.  Sunrise and 36 degrees.  Fall is here…

Thinking…about how quickly our plans can go astray as illness hits the household.  Two of us down (yep…me…again!)  Fears that the rest may soon follow…prayers that it be short-lived…

Thankful for…a warm sweater on a chilly morning.  And my Eden Pure heater.  I can’t believe we’ve needed it so soon…

From the kitchen…gingerale and crackers.  At least for me.  Lunch:??  Dinner:??

Faith and learning…I want to continue to plug away, but we may just take a lighter approach today.  I want to grab blankets and pillows, history books and storybooks and read.  Maybe…

Creating…We had a lot of fun with feast days last week.  So many wonderful crafts and foods.  My standing projects are on hold…

Planning…not much today.  It’s the Feast of St. Faustina...coloring pages and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy to remember our Saint.  Not…food…

Wearing…tan micro-suede lounging pants, long-sleeved black tee, camel polar fleece sweater.  Warm socks…

Reading…this n’ that…

Praying…that round three of sickness will be short lived.  For my friend, Sandra, who has injured her back as she’s preparing for a move, for my dear husband at work, for my three oldest daughters whom I miss terribly!

Hearing…voices of the children…

Around the house…messy.  Not terrifying, but definitely messy.  Except for the classroom.  And the dishes are washed…that’s something.  The laundry isn’t tooooo bad, but bad enough.  I just wish I felt like getting it all done…

One of my favorite things…good health.  You never appreciate it, until it’s missing!

Here’s a picture thought I am sharing with you

A photo from my favorite nature photographer, Gareth.  BTW:  all those rapidly changer blog header pictures?  Those are all Gareth’s pics.  He’s constantly asking me to display this one or that one.  How can I refuse those big blue eyes?  I can’t, I tell ya!

Blessings,
