FOR TODAY March 23, 2009...
Outside my window...Cloudy skies - tiny breeze. I think were having a typical grey Pacific Northwest drizzly day
I am thinking...about what it looks like to be the wife and mother God wants me to be - not what the world expects it to look like or even what the church expects it to be - but what God wants
I am thankful for..The really fun day we had on Saturday!! Such a great time we had!!!
From the learning rooms...Starting our new units on Eyes and Ears and American Folklore
From the kitchen...We just finished buttermilk pancakes for breakfast - I'm finishing my menu for the week next.
Verse for today...Philippians 2: 5-7 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who being in the very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped but made Himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant (the part I'm working on)
I am creating...a birthday gift and my wrap - I went into a very fancy yarn shop this weekend - I almost had to ask for a tissue to wipe the drool off my face :0) It did inspire me to find more creating minutes in my day!!
I am going...Grocery shopping sometime today - not terribly excited to go - hopefully it will seem more fun later ;0)
I am reading...Philippians and Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind by Ann Ross - silly book
I am hoping...Esther's tooth comes through soon. It's just hanging around just making her fussy at night. I can feel how swollen her gums are - poor thing!!
I am hearing...Ruthie tidying the kitchen - the others getting out some coloring things
Around the house...Tidying up - a bit more cleaning up in my bedroom - a good floor sweeping and maybe if there's time a mopping
One of my favorite things...Long rides that start out early in the morning
A few plans for the rest of the week: A potluck Boy Scout Court of Honor on Thursday evening - I think Daniel has achieved a new rank - if he did, I get a new pin to add to my collection :0) For sure he's earned some new merit badges (sewing for me!!) He's working so hard to get Eagle!!
Here is a picture I'm sharing: another picture of the snow geese we saw on Saturday - the farm was so pretty and that distant line of white in front of it were hundreds more geese!!! I wish my camera could have captured the rugged Olympic Mountains that were behind all that - they were just gorgeous!!!
