FOR TODAY - September 28th, 2010
Outside my window... It is pitch black!
I am thinking... That I needed to get my daybook done tonight, because I will be very busy tomorrow, and will not get it done if I don't do it before I go to bed.
I am thankful for... Why do I always have to stop and think about this one? It should be so easy, as there are so many things I am thankful for! I guess it's just choosing one of them that's difficult for me. I am mostly grateful for God's constant and abiding love for me. I am so thankful that He loves me unconditionally, in spite of all of my imperfections.
From the learning rooms... I learned today that I can go 60 minutes on my elliptical machine! This has taken some time - it's something I have been working on in 15 minute increments. I can tell that I am getting stronger each time I workout, because at first my legs felt like Jello after only a few minutes. Now, I look forward to the time I get to spend on my elliptical machine.
From the kitchen...Tonight I made pizza with whole wheat pizza crust, zucchini (it really was good!), red pepper, onion, mushrooms, olives and turkey burger seasoned with garlic and oven dried tomatoes, and on top, a mixture of mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese. It was very delicious and filling. It was also very low in points - I figured about 6 points per slice!
I am wearing... White capris and an orange t-shirt...the shoes came off a long time ago!
A quote I'm sharing...
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."
I am going...We are leaving Thursday night to go camping! I can hardly wait to pull out of the yard! The mountains are so beautiful this time of year - I won't forget my camera!
I am reading... Still reading, "The Cure".
I am hoping...That I can get a good nights sleep tonight. I have been waking up at 2:00 a.m. and staying awake until 4:15 a.m. - that's when we get up! I'm having a hard time functioning on 3 or 4 hours sleep! I have been taking melatonin, but it doesn't help. If anyone has a remedy for insomnia . . . I need it!
I am hearing...The soft hum of my computer - everyone else is asleep, no noise in this house tonight.
Around the house...I have been puttering. That's what I do when I don't get enough sleep... :0)
One of my favorite things...Popcorn. It doesn't matter what kind, I love it all!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Tomorrow - Finish last minute chores around the house.
Thursday - Go grocery shopping in the morning, pack the trailer and get ready to go!
Friday - Relax!
Saturday - Ditto!
Sunday - Ditto, Ditto!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
I'm posting this one for Kimmie at, Serendipity Cafe. Kimmie bought a purse made from a pair of recycled jeans yesterday. The picture is on her blog - it's adorable! I made this purse almost 40 years ago - I thought it would be so cute to make a purse out of an old pair of jeans! I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same!!
