For Today . . . March 29, 2010
Outside my window . . . it's sunny and +15 degrees C! It's so beautiful outside! There are only a few pockets of snow left where the deepest drifts had been and the Canada geese are honking loud and clear as they circle and fly further north.
I am thankful . . . for the change in the seasons. I am looking forward to green grass and seeing the leaves on the trees again.
And I also am thankful . . . that I still have potatoes and onions from last year's garden.
I am praying . . . for Bob's dad who celebrated his 88th birthday on Saturday with a big family gathering.
I am thinking . . . about seeing family this weekend.
I am creating . . . on my quilt again - it's been stacked away for far too long!
I am celebrating . . . Holy Week as we move towards the cross and then the empty tomb.
From the kitchen . . . Tropical Granola (thanks again for the recipe, Jill!) for breakfast, cheese and tomatoes on toasted oatmeal bread for lunch, and roast beef - mashed potatoes and gravy - creamed corn - roasted asparagus - mashed carrots and turnips - fresh whole wheat honey buns - and apple pie for supper. We are having friends tonight :))
I am wearing . . . black track pants, red tshirt and still a fleece jacket.
I am reading . . . Luke 22 - The Last Supper (I skipped ahead to read these chapters during Holy Week.)
Reclaiming the "L" Word (Renewing the Church from Its Lutheran Core) by Kelly A. Fryer - chapter 3 "Jesus is Lord".
A Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer - "a story of fate, fortune, redemption and revenge."
I am hoping . . . to go for a bike ride tomorrow.
I am hearing . . . the Dr. Phil show on CTV. I don't watch this very often but I'm working in the kitchen so I turned it on.
I am going . . . to vacuum and dust as soon as I finish this.
Around the house and yard . . . all the winter dishes and lingering decorations have been packed away and the spring wreath is hung, the bathroom is clean and I am ready for spring!
One of my favourite things . . . playing games with friends. I think there will be one or two on the agenda after supper tonight.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . some closet cleaning, sewing, scrapbooking, a trip to the bottle depot, things to mail at the post office, a meeting, and several church services.
A quote for today . . . Epiphany (from StoryPeople)
Once again I am using Peggy's idea over at Simple Woman Daybooks.
