For Today . . . November 16, 2009
Outside my window. . . a record setting warm day, +13 C with a warm breeze, and lots of sunshine.
I am thankful . . . to be healthy!
And I am also thankful . . . that my Dad is doing better after a bout of kidney stone trouble.
I am praying . . . for a family dear to us as they make important decisions and trust God for everything.
I am thinking . . . about Christmas gifts - I really need to get working on some things.
I am celebrating . . . African music - so energetic and rhythmic!
From the kitchen . . . Creamy Steak from the slow cooker, buttered beets, tomato slices and applesauce.
I am wearing . . . brown long sleeved tshirt, brown cords, and my favourite orange down-filled vest that I bought in Austria 3 years ago!
I am reading . . . The Lizard Cage by Karen Connelly, a mystery set in Burma.
I am hoping . . . to get over to see Naomi's newly painted living room and to mail a parcel to Samuel this week. Oh, and maybe make the first batch of this season's poppycock!
I am hearing . . . Christmas music on TV ads - I need to play some CDs to get the real music instead!
I am creating . . . a birthday card for a dear friend.
Around the house and yard . . . hallway painted, door frames painted, doors painted and now Bob's working on the trim. I'm thinking this might be a good week to put some Christmas tree lights up outside - before it's freezing and blowing!
One of my favourite things . . . spending time in my scrapbook studio - it's been such a long time since I really worked / played in there.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . 3 more days of subbing, a visit with my sister and brother, an outing to the city and hopefully putting some parts of our house back together.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . . a beautiful tree-lined canal leading to the river in Zurich. We could have walked for hours in this lovely city!
