For Today, August 31, 2009...
Outside my window...the sun is still blazing. It's supposed to cool down sometime this week but then the temps should hit the 90's again. So far today, not a breeze in sight.
I am thinking...about the backache I woke up with. Why is it we get a good night's sleep and still wake up with aches and pains? Is this what old age is all about? Ugh! I wanna be a teenager again! (Not really).
I am thankful...for the team I serve with in children's ministry. We had a great time yesterday, and we're getting to know each other really well.
From the learning rooms...I'll be returning books tomorrow to the library, then we'll be tackling some books we already have at home. E enjoyed his first week of school and likes his teacher. I'm hopeful this will be a more productive year.
From the kitchen...tilapia. I didn't get to make it last week.
I am wearing...an olive green v-neck t-shirt, khaki capris and flip-flops.
I am hoping...my son gets financial aid for a technical school he wants to enroll in. University classes are expensive, and technical school is done faster. At 22 years old, he wants to move forward.
I am going...to do what I can to help my son finish his education.
I am creating...a nicer looking dining room today. That's the plan, anyway.
I am reading...Matthew for morning devotions, Luke for SOAP devotions (starting chapter 20), and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Found it in my daughter's room. Decided there was no reason to let it go to waste.
I am hearing...the whir of the ceiling fan. It's a pretty quiet morning now that the youngest is at school, hubby is at work, and my oldest in working on another computer.
Around the house...it's the dining room's turn today. Plus more laundry. That seems never ending.
One of my favorite things...is the holiday season, and it's coming up fast!
Here's a prayer request I'm sharing...pray that our government officials will listen to the people and think twice, three times, twenty times about this health care reform issue. Reform should be better for the nation; so far everything they've discussed is worse. Why would we want to adopt the health care other countries have, when they wish they had what we have?
Here's a picture thought I'm sharing...Daddy and E washing the car.
Wanna join in the fun? Visit Peggy at the Simple Woman's Daybook. God bless and have a great week!
