Outside my window…
It was a gorgeous day today – in the mid-50s, I think! The sun was shining & the snow has melted … 🙂
I am thinking… about some very pressing issues that are lying very heavy on my heart right now and praying that prayer that never fails, “Thy will be done.”
I am thankful for… my husband. We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day too elaborately; in fact, Dan called me late in the day to ask me if I’d gotten him a card because he was going to get me a card but didn’t want to get me one if I hadn’t gotten him one. Romantic, eh??! 😉 I did buy him and my kids a little something – but otherwise, amid all the gushing of friends who got flowers, candy, a dinner date, or jewelry for Valentine’s Day, I kind of feel like Charlie Brown does about Halloween: “I got a rock.” 😉 I’m not complaining though – my husband does loving things for me on a regular basis and takes VERY GOOD care of me – love doesn’t have to be expensive!!
From the kitchen…simple things because we have a busy week this week. Probably won’t be sitting around the table as a family much at all 😦
I am wearing…comfy clothes!
I am creating…a safe haven for my family to come home to after busy days … now if only I could have a day where I actually STAYED HOME all day, that would help!!!
I am going…to pick up the house after Miriam tore through it today (and we weren’t even home the majority of the day!!), so she can start all over again tomorrow! 🙂
I am reading…a magazine (All You) but I have a book I need to get started on for a reveiw.
I am hoping…it will NOT snow again this winter!! We’ve enjoyed our snow days, but now it is time to THINK SPRING!
I am hearing…silence 🙂 Everyone at my house is asleep.
Around the house…Miriam’s myriad of messes 🙂 and my own paperwork messes I need to weed through.
One of my favorite things…the day after Valentine’s Day chocolate sales!! 🙂
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Wednesday – church (prepare for our kids’ club and business meeting)
Thursday – piano lessons
Friday – the boys will be gone to our school’s ballgames (last away games before the season ending tournament next week!! YEAH!!). Miriam, Anna, and I will have to just enjoy GIRL TIME! 🙂
Here is picture for thought I am sharing…
It’s SPIRIT WEEK at our school this week – Monday was International Day
