Monday Stuff

For this Day...October 4, 2010

Outside My Window...A cloudy day, my little maple tree is still beautifully green.

I Am Thankful For...God's provision!!  My pantry is full of good food to feed my family well this week!

I Am Remembering...the lovely "date" my hubby and I had yesterday.  We ran down to the grocery store - got a soda and sat in a nearby parking lot with my notebook and planned our schedule and menus for the week.  No interruptions - just sweet conversation with my honey!!  A funny kind of date - but really - to start the week knowing each other's plans and thoughts sure makes life easier!!!

I Am Creating...Still working on my sister's baby blanket.  I'm so close to being done I can taste it!!  Having a little trouble with the border but I think it'll be okay.

I Am Reading...my Bible and a sweet book by Grace Livingston Hill - love, love, love her books!!!

I Am Hoping...the colds in our home go away quick!!!

On My Mind...All the little things that need my touch on this Monday!!  It's going to be a busy day!!

From The Learning Rooms...We are starting Geography today.  I am excited - I love maps and such and enjoy teaching it to my kids.

I Am Pondering...honestly, not much!!  I am actually trying not to think too much this morning.  My heart is anxious and I find if I think too much instead of "just doing the next thing" my silly old heart just gets to stewing!

From The Kitchen...I need to make yogurt today, make a double batch of bread and for dinner tonight - Potato Soup, Salad and Bread - yum!

Around The House...General tidy and get going on a deeper clean on the kitchen after all that canning - there are some sticky surfaces that need my attention (I did do a good cleaning but really, I need to do more)!

One Of My Favorite Things...Ever!!! is going to the thrift store.  I hope to go today for just a few minutes - I saw a bag with fun yarn and bright green knitting needles.  Ruthie was all over getting  new pair of needles (especially bright green) so we are going to run over and pick them up!!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...Not much, just a fairly regular week - which I like - not to much running around - Yay!!!

A Picture to Share...
