Daybook: 09.22.14

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 ...



Pretty in pink!

I am looking forward to a staycation soon but this weekend will be the one we take every year that I get to sit on a deck in the Ozark mts and converse with my Lord!
Can't wait to see what you have been up to. However, It will be Sunday night before I get to visit as this weekend will be "unplugged". :)

I am so glad that you have a staycation week at home this week, Jerrale! I especially love that you are going to enjoy fluffy up your nest!

And those grandbabies are adorable! It is hard to believe how much they've grown already.

I'm loving your day. He's SOOOOOO cute! Staycations are great, as long as I'm not using them to do major projects around the house. I'm not a fan of projects!

Enjoy your staycations! Often those are the best. You don't have to pack and prepare for a trip - just relax and do what you want. I'll be sure to check in on you Friday to see what adventures you've been up to!
