Outside my window... clear and cool, a nice day to curl up with a good book with football in the background.
I am thinking... about our wonderful church service today. Am tempted to go back for the evening service to see our pastor preach it live.
I am thankful for... the pumpkin spice decaf coffee my mom got me, a perfect treat on a cool day like this.
I am wearing... my Elevation sweatshirt and jeans with thick socks
I am remembering... fun times with old friends-- this was a weekend to catch up with a few of them. We did our share of reminiscing.
I am going... to work on my novel and hopefully finish the first round of edits early. Had a good day of writing yesterday.
I am reading...Bird In Hand by Christina Baker Kline, For Parents Only by Shaunti Feldhahn, Stein On Writing by Sol Stein and Make It Fast, Cook It Slow by Stephanie O'Dea
I am hoping... for a good but busy week. Last week was not busy at all. I loved it.
On my mind... my former college roommate's sister is in the hospital in intensive care. I sat with her for several hours this weekend while she kept vigil in the ICU waiting room. It was good to see my friend again but terrible for it to be under those circumstances. Her sister is improving but still has quite a recovery ahead of her.
From the learning rooms... B is For Bookworm: A Library Alphabet and S is For Story: A Writer's Alphabet. I made a library run this weekend.
Noticing that... the leaves are so pretty-- red and gold and orange, painted with God's paintbrush for us to enjoy.
Pondering these words... "Joy is not determined by what happens to me, but by what Christ is doing in me and through me." (A quote from my pastor today)
From the kitchen... Curt made pancakes and bacon after church this morning for all of us. It was so nice and the house still smells like syrup and hickory.
Around the house... laundry, dishes, tidying... the usual drill.
One of my favorite things... a quiet Sunday afternoon with nothing to do.
