FOR TODAY, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15th
Outside my window... brisk weather at 59°. I love it - feels so invigorating.
I am thinking... about when I first got the internet on my computer and a chat program I came across: ICQ. Anyone remember that? I think of it in my mind like this: I seek you. At that time, I was looking for friends to talk to, but now it occurs to me that I can think of it as "I seek You, my ultimate Friend." My aim is to seek Him in every spare moment of thought. "ICQ JESUS 24/7" Wouldn't that make a great bumper sticker? Or a cute chalkboard sign ... hmm....
I am thankful...beyond measure for the life I've been given. Yes, there have been uncomfortable days, struggles even, but for the most part it's been a joy and a blessing I don't take lightly.
In the kitchen... how far I've fallen from the "menu-planning domestic goddess" I was last week. I do not know what I'm making for dinner today. *Sigh ...
I am wearing... navy pants and a coral long-sleeved drapey kind of tunic. I don't know how to describe it but it is comfy and cute and I've been waiting for months to get to wear it. I purchased it when I was in Colorado.
I am creating...a haven for those cold blustery days that come this time of year.
I am reading... the Nester's book, "The Nesting Place: It Doesn't Have to be Perfect to be Beautiful." Love it.
I am looking forward to... making my first batch of Chipotle-Pumpkin (with chicken and barley) soup. I love this stuff! I've already made my first batch of chili for the season. ;)
I am learning how much I love pinning recipes to Pinterest so I can find them again!
Around the house... the fragrance of baked cinnamon buns in my wax burner. Smells divine.
I am pondering... what I can do to make Christmas special this year for our twin grands. They will only be 6 months old ...
A favorite quote for today...
“See a need, do a deed”
… Sarah Knackal
Seen on the blog “Morganize with Me.”
One of my favorite things... getting out my dress jeans, boots and scarves to wear. I love fall wardrobes!
A few plans for the rest of the week: board meeting Thursday and another free day on Saturday. I foresee a road trip in my future.
A peek into my day...
