Outside my window... sunny and 65. Woo hoo! Come on spring!
I am thankful for... God's word. How it speaks to me directly, giving me answers I wasn't even looking for but needed to hear so badly.
I am praying for... a job for my husband. He needs some encouragement... and so do I.
From the kitchen... chicken and stuffing casserole, green beans
I am wearing... an old sorority sweatshirt from college and gray sweatpants
I am creating... a novel, plans for the next one too
I am reading... Traveling Mercies (re-reading this one), Writing Fiction For Dummies
I am hoping... that this test we are facing will become part of our testimony
I am hearing... the tv, the water running in the kitchen, a whining child
Around the house... laundry, dishes, cleaning, straightening... the usual
One of my favorite things... taking Sunday as a true day of rest
A few plans for the rest of the week... I lead a retreat next weekend so on Friday I will be leaving. This week I will be preparing for that and writing my 1000 words per day. Am still on track to finish up by mid April with my first draft, which leaves me 6 weeks for tweaking and revising before I turn in my novel on June 1. Interestingly, one of the characters in my new novel's husband loses his job. I planned that long before Curt lost his job. Talk about life imitating art! It has made me much more sympathetic towards this character.
