Simple Woman's Daybook~~April 14, 2010
FOR TODAY April 14, 2010...
Outside my window... It’s a positively gorgeous day. I love the light green of the leaves when they have just emerged, especially when combined with the flowering trees.
I am thinking... of the trip we will be making in May to visit Girl Out of the House and That Boy for his graduation from the university. I’m looking forward to seeing their apartment and getting a glimpse of the life they are building together. This will be first time we’ve visited them since their wedding last August.
I am thankful for... a Savior who knows my frame and remembers that I am dust.
From the learning rooms...We are finishing up Hamlet and will be starting MacBeth soon. Girl of the House got to pick our Shakespeare this year, and she picked two tragedies! lol
From the kitchen... I made this yummy recipe from Sallie for dinner. (The one with the bowtie pasta, only I used penne because that's what I had on hand.)
I am wearing... denim capri pants and an peachy/pinkie top with my favorite canvas slip-on shoes.
I am creating... not a thing at the moment. I need to get back to Girl Out of the House’s pillows so I can take them to her in May.
I am going... nowhere in one sense because I won’t be leaving the house today for anything other than a walk with Man of the House, but in another sense I’m going to Russia, England, Canada, Bangladesh, and various parts of the US as I teach my on-line classes this afternoon.
I am reading... Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink. This is one of my favorite children’s books, and since I’ve been reading rather heavy non-fiction for awhile, I decided to treat myself. :-)
I am hoping... to get the flowers for my porch planted soon. (First I have to buy them!)
On my mind… Wondering what the future holds for us as we contemplate moving to another state~~the when, and where, and what for.
Noticing that… Allergy season is in full swing!
Pondering these words… From Psalm 19: The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.
I am hearing... the sounds of the first bugs of the spring beginning their evening song as twilight falls.
Around the house... I need to fold the laundry I did yesterday.
One of my favorite things... Ice cream! It’s getting warm enough to buy it again!
A few plans for the rest of the week: Doctor’s appointment, voice lessons for Girl of the House, putting taxes in the mail tomorrow, planting the aforesaid flowers.
Here is picture thought I am sharing... This is a picture Girl Out of the House took before she got married last summer. She's has a very artistic eye, don't you think? That's Cat of the House.
Thanks to Peggy for hosting the Simple Woman's Daybook!
