FOR TODAY - September 16,2010
Outside my window... I can't believe that we are having another beautiful September day! The sky is blue, a few feathery clouds, a stiff breeze is blowing the pine trees around, but we are suppose to get into the high 80's today, so the breeze will feel nice.
I am praying for... For my son and his dear wife. Her sweet baby girl was killed at a daycare 2 years ago, on the day before Thanksgiving. Hannah was only 18 months old. The daycare provider was charged with Involuntary Manslaughter. The judge that was hearing the case, ordered her to have a jury trial, but it has been postponed and rescheduled for over a year. Today, they have a mediation hearing - hopefully, they will make some decisions about the jury trial date, or if there will even be a jury trial. I cannot even imagine how extremely difficult it is going to be for both of them. Diana is a strong woman, but, she is also a mom, who lost the love and companionship of her little daughter way too soon. She desperately needs to have closure, and peace that comes with it. Today, I will be praying that they will find that comfort and peace.
I am thankful for... Prayer.
A scripture I am sharing...
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
From the kitchen... I have not had a chance to think about cooking this week. Although, I did make and freeze two quarts of fresh apple juice and made a batch of applesauce out of some wonderful apples that a neighbor gave me. Yummmmmy!
I am wearing... Denim capri's, and a blue and white striped t-shirt.
I am creating... Trying to create a wonderful Autumn atmosphere in my home! I'm going to get my Fall decorations out today and make my house cozy and warm...:0)
I am going... To stay home today and clean my computer room!
I am reading... Fly Lady!! I really need to get back into a routine with my housework. I think that Fall is a good time to do that. I like to follow her holiday routine - it really does work!
I am hoping... That I didn't do to terrible when I weigh in tomorrow, it's been a hard couple of weeks. If I gain, it will be the first gain I've had since I started my diet. So far. . . 45 pounds. I think that Fall is a hard time to diet, I seem to change my eating habits when the weather starts to get cold. Plus, I'm not as active - I really need to exercise more!
I am hearing... The wind blowing through the pine trees - I like that sound.
Around the house... Clean the computer room, make bread, finish the laundry, poke around in my garden, put up my Fall decorations.
One of my favorite things... Hanging out with my little sis! Yesterday we went to lunch and then shopping. It was so fun!! I just needed to visit with her yesterday - I seem to struggle this time of year, so just talking and laughing seems to make me feel better. Thanks Karen... :-)
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Babysit three of my sweet little grandchildren tonight.
Tomorrow - Dr. appointment for hubby and weigh-in!
Saturday - My grandson's football game.
Sunday - Church.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.
