Monday Morning

For Today...October 12, 2009

Outside my Window...The sky is just getting light - the darkness is being chased away by brilliant color!!

I am Thankful for...God's grace!! Where would I be without it?!!! I am clinging to Him!! And so thankful He wants me too!!
I am Remembering...the wonderful sermon on Peace we had yesterday - it always amazes me that God always gives me words of encouragement right when I need them

I am Creating...Christmas gifts - I finally got the color situation worked out (thanks to my creative daughter) I changed the pattern I was doing and now am very happy with my project. I got a good amount done!!

I am Going...No where!!! We've ALL got colds and we are staying home!!!

I am Reading...Hebrews and an Agatha Christie

I am Hoping...that today is productive in spite of my cold - I've got tons to do!!

On my Mind...More than there ever should be - our limping appliances, our broken car and my children and how God is working in their lives (not in that order :0)!!)

From the learning rooms...I have so much preserving to do - apples, zucchini, tomatoes - it will be a home econ day today!!

I am noticing is COLD out!!!

Pondering these words... (still) Be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you. " Hebrews 13:5

From the Kitchen...Buttermilk pancakes for breakfast, left over roast and potatoes made into a pie for dinner.

Around the house...a quick tidy then taking care of all the produce

One of my Favorite things...crisp cold mornings!!

A few plans for the rest of the week...I not making many plans until these colds are better - everyone in the house at the same time!! Usually we do it in small groups - at least it will be done faster!!!

A picture I'm sharing with you...How I plan to preserve the zucchini - in loaves of bread for the freezer - can't beat taking a loaf out in January for breakfast or a snack!!

Have a wonderful Monday!!

The bread looks so good, and i love that you have a plan for your week. While i have "unquit" i am still in trench warfare, and decided this was the wrong week to give up Dr.Pepper and chocolate...
Praying for a speedy recovery
