For Today . . . May 31, 2010
Outside my window . . . perhaps, just perhaps, warm weather has returned to our corner of the universe! It was cool and rainy this morning but the day is ending with sunshine and +12 degree C temperatures. The forecast is for clearing skies and frost (!) tonight with a high of +17 tomorrow. Hopefully we have seen the last of the snow for at least 2 months!!
I am thankful . . . for so much goodness in health, relationships, food, peace, and joy - all gifts from my Heavenly Father.
And I also am thankful . . . for all the moisture that has come to our area in the last few weeks.
I am praying . . . for our son-in-law and daughter who will celebrate their 11th anniversary this week.
I am thinking . . . about birthday gifts - June is a busy month in our family!
I am creating . . . some surprise gifts :))
I am celebrating . . . our daughter-in-law Kelsey's birthday later this week.
From the kitchen . . . not much! Spiral Pasta in Cheese Sauce, Grilled Pork Chops, kernel corn, sauteed cabbage and cucumber slices for supper.
I am wearing . . . brown dress pants, brown tshirt, green sweater, floral scarf and brown shoes.
I am reading . . . Luke 20 - The Last Supper
Shanghai Girls by Lisa See - on hold for now
The Help by Kathleen Stockett - "Set in Mississippi during a time when possibilities for women were very different than they are today, Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. Why? Because they are suffocating within the lines that define their town and their times. And sometimes lines are made to be crossed." It's a very, very good read - I'm only on page 100 but I recommend it already. This is our book club read for June.
I am hoping . . . to finish the garden planting this week.
I am hearing . . . the second game in the Stanley Cup playoffs - Chicago just defeated Philadelphia - 2-0.
I am going . . . for a walk as the sun goes down.
Around the house and yard . . . still covering and moving plants around, dandelions blooming on the lawn, lilacs blooming and perfuming the yard.
One of my favourite things . . . spring and summer blossoms.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . 3 more days of subbing, a whole province Health Advisory Council meeting, and a retirement party at which my friend will be honoured.
A quote for today . . .
