FOR TODAY April 16, 2009
Outside my window...Spring begins, filling me with hope.
I am thinking...of so many things that I need to do, paint my kitchen, bedroom and hall for one. Finish the floor trim in the living room and hall. Replace the carpeting in my bedroom. Clean the back porch and the shed...so much to do!
I am thankful for...God bringing me to Fresh Life Church where my soul is fed the spiritual food it craves.
From the kitchen...Last night I made ham and musroom casserole. Tonight for dinner I will make spaghetti using italian sausage and served with soft garlic bread and a green salad.
I am wearing...My comfy clothes of course, Navy Blue pants and a white long sleeved top that is embroidered with colorful flowers. Very hippie looking today.
I am creating...Dishcloths. I have been knitting and crocheting them both lately.
I am going...to the College at 4 pm. I completed High School, but was missing a 1/4 credit in History in 1985. I am getting my GED so I can begin Nursing in the fall.
I am reading...Currently I am not reading anything, but next on my list is Love Comes Softly by Janette Oak.
I am praying...that I can become more patient, more loving, more quiet and that I can be a blessing rather than a burden.
I am hearing...The rumble of the dryer, which will soon be a thing of the past, for the summer at least. Mike is stretching the clothesline today.
Around the house...Life is strange. Our kids are grown and almost always gone and I am unsure what to do with me. I feel strangely useless and unsure of who or what I am supposed to be now.
One of my favorite things... Is finding old hand written recipes and thinking about the women that wrote them and what their lives might have been like.
A few plans for the rest of the week: GED on Friday, Church on Saturday, Financial Aid and registration for Nursing on Monday.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
