Outside my window…discovering all of the wildlife that I’m now surrounded by…peacocks, horses, blue jays, sheep, ducks, geese, deer and I’m fairly confident that last night I heard a donkey.
I am thinking…I’d like to take a trip pretty soon.
I am thankful for…all the perks of this new house…(besides the aforementioned laundry, storage shed and a bigger bedroom) a deep kitchen sink, coat closet, taller ceilings, a yard, built in shelves in my closet. God certainly provided for my needs…and then for some of my wants.
From the kitchen…Chocolate Zucchini Bread.
I am wearing…my work clothes.
I am reading…Genesis. Preparing for my Old Testament Bible study tomorrow.
I am hoping…for my life to calm the heck down. I’d like to be still for awhile.
I am noticing that…it’s difficult to work full time and have a life/home at the same time.
I am creating…a new space for myself.
I am hearing…Phil Wickham.
I am pondering these words…“There are some things You learn best in calm, and some in storm.” – Willa Cather. Straight off of last month’s Real Simple magazine. Pretty profound.
I am praying…for my sister and brother-in-law as they start the process to adopt a child.
Around the house…cable today, internet & phone next week. I see an end to unpacking what seems to have been hundreds of boxes.
One of my favorite things…pumpkins on my front porch.
A few plans for the rest of the week…baking, organizing, decorating. All things I love.
