Outside my window...the moon and stars are quiet. The weather says it's foggy but it's too dark out yet for me to see anything.
I am thinking...about the long winter ahead. So not looking forward to it.
I am thankful...for yesterday. All our kids came over for the afternoon. It recharged my emotional batteries to have our family together, laughing and talking and teasing.
From the learning rooms...school is going well. We're getting into a routine and we are both thankful to be busy again. I never thought I'd say this, but our summer break was too long!
In the kitchen...I need to bake cookies. The cookie jar is empty and lonely.
I am wearing...still in my pj's. Hey, it's only 5:45 in the morning!
I am creating...I'm not really creating anything, but I'm in the process of tweaking two scrapbooks. One of each of my parents' lives
I am going...to babysit my new grand baby this afternoon! So excited!
I am wondering...how on earth I gained 5 pounds. Hopefully it'll be gone in a week or two. Hold me accountable, will ya? Somebody? Anybody?
I am reading...The Hobbit to myself and The Fellowship to my son. Next to the bible, these books are my favorites right now.
I am hoping...to get to the point where I stop wrestling with God and surrender. Why do I do this? He always wins and it's always for my good and I know it's because He loves me....
I am looking forward to...spending the day with my new granddaughter.
I am hearing...crickets and a dog barking. Fans are humming and the key board is clicking. That's about it.
Around the house...baby bottles on the kitchen counter. It's incredibly sweet to see tiny baby things in our house once more. God is good.
One of my favorite things...the name Elizabeth.
A few plans for the rest of the week: losing at least 2 pounds, finishing those 2 scrapbooks, school, enjoying the cooler weather...
