I haven't participated in this meme in quite a while. But, it seemed a cozy and homey sort of thing to write tonight.
Outside my window...It has been partly cloudy all day, but the sun peeked through at times, and the weather was mild.
I am thinking...That I've been missing my husband who has been gone most nights lately working on our rental house.
I am thankful...That we have renters for our house and that they are friends who will be good renters.
In the kitchen...Tonight was beef tips with pasta and corn and beans. It wasn't anything new or different, but I cooked it in the crockpot, so it was super easy and ready when we were.
I am wearing...Sweats and a tshirt
I am creating...Ah... nothing at the moment. But, I did print off lesson plans for Charles's next literature unit and the little girls' lapbooks. That should count, hmmm?
I am going...Nowhere tomorrow until the evening when we'll head to church for supper, choir, and youth group.
I am wondering...How soon could I get away with saying it's bedtime and having everyone clean up?
I am reading...Um, a free Kindle read that would definitely be considered twaddle and probably isn't worth my time but is somewhat entertaining.
I am hoping...That Jason gets home soon.
I am looking forward to...Jason coming home (notice a theme here?)
I am learning...More about clean eating. It sparked my interest a few years ago, and we made some changes. We've slipped back into some old ways, but I've been considering it again, and that just happened to be our homemaking topic at Ladies Bible Study today.
Around the house...Right now the schoolroom looks like a crafting explosion, and there are Legos in my kitchen floor. But, it will be cleaned up by bedtime. I promise.
I am pondering...Absolutely nothing meaningful. In fact, the mere phrase brought to mind the old cartoon: "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering." "Yeah, Brain, how do they get the chickens to wear the nylons?"
A favorite quote for today... “We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.” C.S. Lewis- We were talking about answered prayer at Bible study today, and I thought this was fitting.
One of my favorite things...Having one of my children come up unexpectedly and hug me. Without wanting anything.
A few plans for the rest of the week:.. Church tomorrow evening; Soccer for Charles tomorrow; Ashlyne to the gym on Thursday and Friday; Kathryne to a birthday party Thursday; Kickoff for Global Impact Week at church this weekend
A peek into my day...
Child after my own heart reading and reading and reading.....
