Outside my window: cool, overcast and dreary. It looks like rain, but that's not deterring Carl the cardinal, or the robins from singing their morning songs. I so love having the windows open -- even if it drives my allergies to the edge of crazy.
I am thinking:
about my dad and the nasty fall he took on Friday. Please pray for healing, strength, and patience for him -- and my mom too!
In the kitchen:
lots of fresh in season fruit. We can't seem to get enough peaches! Broccoli, mangoes, and apples waiting to be prepared and frozen.
I am wearing: black linen pants, black peasant top with tiny white pokadots, pearl drop earrings, and flip flops. I don my favorite sweatshirt before I hit the pool.
I am creating: I have to get a photo ready for clients first and then I am building chore charts and menu plans.
I am going:
to dentist appt's, an audiologist appt. for Bright Eyes, school cleaning, and back and forth to the pool of course!
I am wondering:
why getting back into shape is so ridiculously painful!?
It wasn't that hard to get out of shape. ;o)
I am reading: hoping to get Charlie and the Chocolate Factory finished this week. I finally gave up on Wuthering Heights. I just can't get into it.
I am hoping: that the way today started is not an indicator for the rest of the week. I slept in and therefore missed my morning walk. I need my walk!
I am looking forward to: I can't believe I'm saying this, but I am looking forward to school starting. Actually I'm having very mixed feelings about it this year, but I am longing for quiet mornings again to just get things done without it being undone less than five minutes after I've completed it.
I am learning: about soil care and amendment.
Around the house: dust dragons, baskets of clean laundry waiting to be folded, fresh fruits and veggies all over the counter waiting to go in the freezer or be eaten.
I am pondering:
workout videos or gym membership? There are plusses and minuses to both. All I know is that I really need to start building muscle again.
A favorite quote for today: "Let all that you do be done with love!" I Corinthians 16:14
A few plans for the rest of the week: get previously mentioned shoot completed today and work on a couple others that need to go up, move girls bedrooms around, tame the dust dragons, start weight training, (yikes!!).
A peek into my day:
I have mastered walking with a giant blister on my heel. It's not perfect, but it works. A bandaid, fun foam, duct tape, and a thick sock.
Happy Monday, my friends!
