Daybook November 2, 2009

FOR TODAY... Monday November 2, 2009

Outside my window... it's a beautiful day... warm and clear.

I am thinking... about a couple of boxes that I'm waiting for... my new MacBook Pro and a box of diet food.

I am hearing... boy and grandfather scheming about a trip to the ice cream store.

I am thankful for... my Dad. It's his birthday this week. He's a great dad and a great grandpa. I'm not saying that he doesn't drive me nuts and that he doesn't interfere in our parenting, but I wouldn't trade him. I should pray for him more.

I am wearing... the summer "uniform" - black cargo capris, croc flips, and my wild yellow and bright colored tee shirt.

I am remembering... a silly outfit that I used to wear when I first met Surferman. A white long sleeved shirt, navy tights and red/navy plaid shorts. I don't know what I was thinking. Must have been some leftover preppy. Do you remember any silly outfits you wore?

I am going... to celebrate my blogoversary this week. Four Years! I should also be hitting 600 posts. Watch for a giveaway later this week.

I am reading... same as last week. It's slow and I haven't been taking any extra time to read.

I am hoping... that the new comforter cover that we bought is going to stop shedding someday. It's flannel and has been leaving fuzz everywhere. I washed it and it's still very linty.

On my mind... all the fund-raising they do at Grom's school. Just today, three opportunities to spend money came home. Do they really need all that money?

From the learning rooms... books about the ocean, ships and sea animals. It's "g" week at school.

Noticing that... my desk is so messy that now I'm putting my computer on top of a pile of papers.

Pondering these words...
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV
It's from our message on Sunday. Today Grom was lollygagging before school. He told me that everything in his life was too tempting and that it kept him from listening and doing what he was supposed to. Oh, the things God teaches me through my son.

From the kitchen... tuna noodle casserole tonight. It's a favorite that we don't eat very often. Please don't tell Grom in has tuna in it.

Around the house... marshmallow gun wars. We bought my dad a couple of marshmallow guns for his birthday. Way fun. It's surprising how scary it is to be shot with a mini marshmallow.

One of my favorite things... picking Grom up at school and getting the chance to be the first one to hear about his day. Today they went to a play of Charlotte's Web. It was a man in a pig costume... not a real pig.

A picture to share...Another of the sunset shots. I love Grom's reflection in the wet sand and evident joy he gets just running around at the beach. We need to hit the sand more often.

  1. Wow Robin, congratulations on 4 years! I enjoy reading your blog and learning with you = )

    I have to comment on the photo -- that is an absolutely AWESOME photo -- one to be framed, definitely!!!!

    Okay you asked about silly outfits -- there are too many to report on, but they ALL had something in common, huge football-player like shoulder pads. Need I say more?

    Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for sharing your life with us....


  2. Four years is a long time to have a blog. Sometimes I like blogging and sometimes I don't. I love to have people visit my blog but I hate for them to thank me for stopping by their blog. Congrats on your four years. I will have to read more of your posts. The picture you shared is beautiful. Your son has an unusual name. I couldn't figure out how to pronounce it. I like the verse from Corinthians. I hope you have a wonderful week. Doylene
