For Today . . . August 4, 2009
Outside my window. . . cloudy, windy, and very cool as we drive home from Jasper after a weekend of camping and hiking (for the dads). We had to abandon our plans of a morning bike ride - it was just too cold.
I am thankful . . . that the hikers returned safely and have many stories to share about their adventures.
And I am also thankful . . . for camping time with 4 of our grandchildren and 2 of our daughters, even if it was crazy at times!
I am praying . . . that I would continue to grow my relationship with God as this devotional reminds me.
I am thinking . . . about how much we've been away - the good times and memories we've had - and now how much I want to stay home for a while!
From the kitchen. . . time to get back into cooking and healthy eating!
I am wearing . . . black warmup pants, green polka dotted shirt, and crocs.
I am reading . . . Summerhill Secrets, a series of short stories about a girl living in Pennsylvania Amish country (near Lancaster, where we were while on our Pennsylvania road trip with Mel and Samuel) by Beverly Lewis
I am hoping . . . to get the raspberries picked tonight.
I am hearing . . . the clock ticking.
I am creating . . . some thank-you cards.
Around the house and yard . . . raspberries, saskatoons and peas to pick, the first ripe tomato to savour, a mountain of laundry to do, the camper to unpack and clean up, and settling back into routines.
One of my favourite things . . . fresh raspberries with brown sugar and cream.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . a haircut, garden work, judging at a local fair, visit to the Farmer's Market and sleeping in my own bed!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . . the moon rising over the mountains as we drove out to Jasper.
