Reflections on the Day for 13 February 2009.
It’s a lovely 58°F!!
Plans for this weekend – just shopping (blech!) food, clothing and kitchen chairs
I am wearing – comfy pants, t’shirt and wool socks
I am feeling – strange! With the boy sleeping upstairs in his new room, I can do a lot more in the mornings than I used to!
I am hearing – the fish tank. it’s so loud. it still needs a new filter.
I am thankful for – A smooth transition yesterday. There were few complaints or tragedies with the room move. We now have a girl room, LittleDood’s room, SoldierBoy’s and CarKiller’s room/guest room and a “spare” room. (it won’t be “spare” for long!)
In prayer – Chief and all of our kids. My friend who is still healing from her miscarriage, friends who are currently pregnant, friends who are hoping to be.
SoldierBoy: Off skiing this weekend.
CarKiller: Off to Austin for the night… just for fun, I guess
GuitarGirl: Surprised me the most by her lack of complaints when I put the girls in the “big room.”
MissKaboom: she’s been a bit testy lately
MissCreativity: I think she likes the room switch most of all. Having both sisters there is a good thing!
LittleDood: seems to have taken right to the move from our room to his own. Yay!
Kitchen – Fajitas, I think
In our my craft room: Just knitting, check out the My Knitting Basket page. Still working on the “under gown”
Still time to get the yarn and needles reorganized
In our school: Nothing spectacular or fun (Sorry, Kids!)
Lucky Room(s) of the week: Finish my bedroom and closet!
My iPod – Nothing
My Reading – Nothing again, but I’m lining up some lenten reading
My scripture meditation for the Day –
Matthew 13: 3-9
And he spoke to them at length in parables, saying:
“A sower went out to sow.
And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and birds came and ate it up.
Some fell on rocky ground, where it had little soil.
It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep,
and when the sun rose it was scorched, and it withered for lack of roots.
Some seed fell among thorns,
and the thorns grew up and choked it.
But some seed fell on rich soil,
and produced fruit, a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold.
Whoever has ears ought to hear.”
Here are some picture thought I am sharing:
From “Ditch and Stitch”
The kids and I had a wonderful treat this week:
