For Today . . . September 14, 2009
Outside my window. . . a beautiful Indian summer day with bright sunshine, a bit of a breeze and warm temperatures.
I am thankful . . . that I can easily call our children and talk to them frequently.
And I am also thankful . . . for evening bike rides along the shore of the lake.
I am praying . . . that we can have patience to understand God's leading and His will.
I am thinking . . . about the social and science lessons that I have to teach tomorrow.
I am celebrating . . . because I got a new scalloped border punch from Stampin' Up! Now if only I had time to use it!
From the kitchen . . . pasta beef casserole, corn on the cob and peaches with cream.
I am wearing . . . brown capris, yellow striped tshirt and Skechers.
I am reading . . . A Blade of Grass by Lewis DeSoto. Set on the border between South Africa and an unnamed country, it's the story of 2 women, 1 black and 1 white, and their friendship amidst war. This book provides perspective on what it means to be black and white in a country where freedom is precious and often tragic.
I am hoping . . . to get my visa problem corrected - quickly!
I am hearing . . . the clock ticking.
I am creating . . . a mini travel album but it's going very, very slowly. All this gardening and canning is seriously interfering with my creative time :(
Around the house and yard . . . a few more tomatoes to can, dusting desperately needing to be done and more crabapples to pick.
One of my favourite things . . . fresh cinnamon buns.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . more subbing, filled jars to be wiped and put away, chocolate zucchini cake to bake and a playdate with Meadow (it's been a long time since we've had a day to just ourselves!).
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . . teacher resource manuals open on my temporary desk at school.
