Outside my window... warm and sunny... spring weather. I actually ran the AC in the car today.
I am thinking... how great it was to take one of my daughters out to run errands, just her and me. We had a great talk and I was so glad God prompted me to take her with me. He knew she needed to talk... I didn't. I need to listen and obey more often.
I am thankful for... evenings at home.
I am wearing... jeans and a pink long sleeved tee shirt.
I am remembering... how fun it was this weekend to watch my son doing something he loves.
I am reading... a stack of books. I had a bunch of holds come in at the library and I want to read them all! First up is Jodi Picoult's new one.
I am hoping... for a fun family time this coming weekend.
On my mind... the novel I am writing. I am getting into that "heading for the homestretch" phase where I can't write fast enough or get enough time to write.
From the learning rooms... the Fancy Nancy books for the 4yo
Noticing that... We are emerging from a long, cold winter slowly but surely. This change of weather feels like a bigger change is on its way. Tonight that seemed possible.
Pondering these words... If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison (That's what I did with The Mailbox.)
From the kitchen... Barbecue ribs, baked potatoes and salad tomorrow night, Spaghetti Wednesday night, leftovers on Thursday night
Around the house... getting ready for small group meeting on Tuesday night
One of my favorite things: Southern Praline ice cream
A few plans for the rest of the week: visiting an old friend tomorrow at her home by the lake-- hoping for great weather and some time outside for our preschoolers
