FOR TODAY, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22ND
Outside my window... a lovely cool fall morning. The windows are open to the fresh air.
I am thinking... I'm so excited for this week - a lovely staycation at home. We are planning a day-trip for later in the week and the rest of the time I will be right here - fluffing and enjoying my nest.
I am thankful... for paid vacations!
In the kitchen... ribs tonight. I hope to be doing some experimenting of new recipes this week as well as putting up some batches of dumplings for the freezer.
I am wearing... blue jean bermudas and a lime green and gold tee. And I'm barefoot ... because I can!
I am creating... some blog posts and some collage pictures of the grands
I am going... no where!
I am reading... well, I'm starting a new book, "Fear has a Name" by Creston Mapes. I've been advised that once I start, I won't be able to put it down. I've saved it specifically for vacation for that reason.
I am looking forward to... all the fun things I am going to do this week. Come visit my blog on Friday and see what I've been doing.
Around the house... projects waiting to be done.
I am pondering... what should be at the top of my to-do list.
A favorite quote for today...
"Home interprets heaven - Home is heaven for beginners." Charles Henry Parkhurst
Maybe that is why I'm so passionate about home. It is just a teeny tiny foretaste of my heavenly Home.
One of my favorite things... early mornings. I love the start of a new day filled with plenty of possibility. I function best in the mornings. It seems to be the time of day when I get the most ideas. It's also when I have the most energy.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Each day I will get up and peruse my master to-do list and pick the ones I want to do that day. If the list doesn't get done, no worries. I will save it for my next staycation in October.
A peek into my day ...
