Outside my window...Fog and drizzle, I was expecting sunshine. I know though I could jump in
the car and take off to the beach and it is 80 degrees there, I am not yet though, ready for
warm weather. Just knowing, makes me feel happy.
I am thinking...That I really have so much to be thankful for, my cupboards are full of food,
I have clean water and electricity.
I am thankful for...The freedom to do what I want. If I want to write a blog or jump in my car or
even say uncharitable things about the government. I have the freedom to do so.
From the learning rooms...I think my learning room this week is to let go and open my hands and let God be the one in charge. To live in the now, and not in the what ifs that I seem to be
letting my mind wander to in January.
From the kitchen...This week, I plan to stick closer to my Weight Watcher plan, Not think I can make yummy treats, those blasted cupcakes called my name every night. I could smell the chocolate from my chair. I chewed lots of gum and drank lots of water. So glad when the last one got eaten up by a kid who needs to gain weight.
I am wearing...Wow, same black sweats again. I guess I don't mix it up very much. But they are my favorites and they are warm.
I am creating...I am almost through my workbasket and will be starting some new project later this week, like continuing hooking my rugs.
I am going...to be staying home a bunch this week as the college kids go back to school.
We have a orange Volkswagen that my husband is restoring and it is drive-able but it is a bug and sometimes going around a corner the doors fly open, so I do technically have a car to drive.
I am reading...Well still making my way through the new Father Tim book but I have been reading Death of a Glutton by M.C. Beaton. I am almost finished with the series I am going to start Bleak House next by Charles Dickens. Something comforting about Dickens.
I am hoping...For a quieter week. Less late nights and more uniform schedule.
I am hearing...My husband is playing a game on the XBox called Dirt Two so the sound
of race cars roaring through the house. The sounds of the kids voices from upstairs.
Around the house...The twilight is again creeping in and the fog is getting thicker as the sun
slips down into the dark. Tonight everyone will be home and I can lock the doors and bedtime
will be nice.
One of my favorite things...Sitting and having coffee as the sun goes down with my husband.
A few plans for the rest of the week: To walk more than I did this week. To get my berry vines trimmed and get my flowers cleaned out and trim my herbs that are going crazy in this cool weather.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing... I miss my flowers.
Once again I want to thank Peggy for the Simple Woman's
I hope your Monday is a very special day.
