February - yippee! A short month, then spring is just around the corner. :)
For today, February 19, 2013.....
Outside my window...it's 52 degrees, sunny, with a beautiful blue sky. And cumulus clouds are floating on the wind.
I am thinking... about preparing supper. It's only 2:00 pm, but the children are reminding me that their hunger pains aren't far away. ;)
I am thankful...for antibiotics. I stubbornly fought a sinus/ear infection for quite some time, before finally giving in and going to our family doctor. Help is on the way!
In the kitchen...we are growing rock candy.
I am wearing...a white top under a red top (love the layering thing) and a multi-colored peasant skirt - all treasures from my thrift store.
I am creating...bloomers for Natty for this summer. She has already grown out of the ones I made her last year. :(
I am going...nowhere today. I LOVE stay-at-home-days! :)
I am wondering... if Mimi will be ready for yr1 of Ambleside this September. Hmmm...still praying about that one.
I am reading..."Trusting God When Life Hurts" by Jerry Bridges. Awesome book, and just what I need to be reading right now.
I am hoping...for a bountiful harvest from the veggie garden this year, with plenty of rain throughout the growing season. Last year it was too hot and dry to harvest much of anything.
I am looking forward to...planting peas at the end of the month.
I am learning...that using encouraging words with my children is a wonderful motivator.
Around the house...musical instruments are all over the couch. The children just finished practice and the house was filled with music. Love that. :)
I am pondering...how our country has gone downhill so fast over the past four years. I used to wonder why the older generation (namely, my parents) worried so about our country. Now I realize that what they remember, is so far from what it is now. America is no longer in her glory days. How sad...especially for my children and grandchildren.
A favorite quote for the day..."The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety." ~ George Mueller
One of my favorite things...is hearing the laughter of my children as they play together.
A few plans for the rest of the week...school lessons, maybe a trip to the library, and, after my battle with this infection, getting some much-needed rest!
A peek into my day...
I hope your week is going wonderfully, friends!
