From my daybook...the week beginning August 15
Outside my window...Its 82 °F, (28 °C), and sunny...the bird feeders are empty again, grass is green, flowers are red....we have a baby rabbit living under the porch...he's a fan of my Sweet Potato vine.
Hearing...the washing machine working on the second load of the day...
I am thinking....about the chores that I need to get done...I'm taking a break for another cup of coffee and some orange juice..I was feeling a little weak(low blood sugar) and shaky.
Feeling thankful for...every gift from the Father....
I am remembering...Bible study yesterday morning...starting the Fall semester...studying Jonah and the interrupted life...
Creating this...little piles of 'stuff' as I sort through the clutter that used to be my studio and decide how best to store it and what to throw away.
I am currently reading...Ford County by John Grisham
One year ago today...It was hot and we were having some pop up storms...I was gathering lots of Okra and about out of tomatoes....working on Scrapbook pages for my family history and getting crafts ready for our annual cultural arts contest...reading The Novelist by Angela Hunt...planning a trip to Boaz.
I am hoping...to at least clear the kitchen and my closet of items which I moved there to have the carpet cleaned before the day is over.....to freeze some Okra, and other items.
On my mind...finishing the chores and having a day to spend with Daughter tomorrow
Noticing that...Smokey likes to have his bedding changed in his basket...he hadn't been in it since Friday, perhaps it smelled of the carpet cleaner, this morning I changed his bedding and now he is inside again.
Pondering these words..."In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught." --Baba Dioum.
From the kitchen...leftovers from the weekend: Fried Okra, Stuffed Peppers, Roast with carrots, onions and potatoes....tuna salad.
Around the house...clutter in at least 4 rooms that requires my attention....two more loads of laundry.....the living room and master bedroom are tidy....
I am praying for...Jill's father, the requests from Bible study, son and family as well as Daughter and hers....Honey Bear(in Houston this week)...my nephew
A few plans for the week..Spend the day with Daughter tomorrow....errands to run.....repairman coming on Friday afternoon....another wonderful weekend with Honey Bear
One of my favorite things...a well organized house
