daybook 02.07.2011

Outside my window... I'm in the gallery at Grom's gymnastics class. I can see out a back door to the parking lot. It's that beautiful time of afternoon when the sun is starting to go down. Today was a beautiful day.

I am thinking... about the things that I want to be different in my life. Some I can do something about, some I can't and some just require prayer.

I am thankful for... God's faithfulness and constancy (isn't constancy a great word?).

From the learning rooms... one almost murdered child. Anyone want to come over and get Grom to write his name on his work samples? It's a huge ordeal e v e r y time.

From the kitchen... leftover pasta... (sarcastic yum). It's another one of those busy evenings and I really am glad to have something in easy from the freezer.

I am wearing... black capris, sparkly red tee, and flip flops

I am creating... I took a quilt top to be quilted last week! It's quite possibly the first quilt I'll finish since Grom was born. It's beautiful. I'll post photos when it's done. I have another quilt mostly done. It's rather modern (read trendy) fabrics. If I don't get it done soon, it's going to look dated. More motivation to get my studio under control.

I am going... to get an ingrown toenail fixed on Friday. I expect it's going to hurt quite a bit, but it will be so nice to be able to wear all of my shoes again.

I am reading... Sisterchicks on the Loose by Robin Jones Gunn. I think I've found another series. (Stacey, I'll pass it on when I'm done. It's from the library).

I am hoping... to get a date night with Surferman soon. We've had a 17 year old living in our home since September and haven't used him for some free Gromsitting.

I am hearing... hollering coaches and gossiping moms.

Around the house... I'm reading and processing our mail everyday. Trying to take care of business. It's easy to let it slip.

One of my favorite things... a crisp juicy apple. I've had some really good ones lately.

Vocabulary word of the week:
blithe (adj.) - joyous, merry, or gay in disposition; glad; cheerful: without thought or regard; carefree; heedless:
Used in a sentence: She moved blithely through her day, no problems could stop her.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Tomorrow is Gogo's last home soccer game. His team didn't do well so post season isn't an issue. Past that it's all the usual stuff. Well.. maybe that date night???

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...How you can be praying for me and mine... that we would pray together more.
