Outside my window...the sun is shinning, I can see the shadows it forms on the ground...the way our house sits, the sun rises on the side where the faux fence is outside my bedroom window....the grass is freshly mowed and so green..we had a storm yesterday, which deposited many seed pods on the porch,from the Maple tree...I just saw two Mocking Birds, the female Downy Woodpecker, the Cardinal pair, and a Wren on the feeder...I have hung my Hummingbird feeder where I can see it from this window, so far there has been no activity...right now its 43 °F, (6 °C), and expected to reach 60 degrees today.
Hearing...Smokey in the kitchen crunching on his dry food....the fan
I am thinking...I need to run put the recyclables out on the curb....I usually do it the night before, but it was raining last night.
Feeling thankful for...all the prayer warriors in my life...the extra day I had Honey Bear home(makes today seem like Monday though)...time to pursue my hobbies...friends
I am remembering...seeing the Princess in the Passion Play Sunday night...she looked so happy.
I am currently reading...Daring to Dream by Nora Roberts....anxious to begin The Union Quilters
One year ago today...It was 58 degrees and expected to reach 86...I was reading "Someone Else's Daughter"...Easter was the weekend before...I was working on the family history scrapbooks....looking forward to Habitat Women's Work Day.
I am hoping...that I feel like going out with Daughter today....that this Bronchitis is about over....that I get the ironing done
On my mind...the things I need to be doing while I sit here on the computer...
Noticing that...the days are getting longer
Pondering these words...
“Dreams do not vanish, unless people abandon them.” P.F. Harlock
From the kitchen...toasted raisin bread for breakfast...lots bits and pieces leftover from weekend meals for me this week...I'm thinking I need to cook some of the okra from the freezer....and plan something for Easter...clean both fridges
Around the house...things are pretty much chaos (when I'm sick the whole scheme of things changes)....must do some tidying before the cleaning girls come on Thursday...need to schedule a carpet cleaning
I am praying for...Rene's Dad...Honey Bear...my children and grandchildren...Shortybear and Eddie...Denise...Abbie...others
A few plans for the week...spend some time with Daughter today...my week is mostly free
One of my favorite things...sitting out on the porch in the morning with my coffee...maybe I'll be able to do that this week.
