For Monday, November 18, 2013:
Outside my window: leaves that need to be raked. The trees are completely denuded now.
I am hearing: the wind gusting like crazy, the fan on the furnace.
I am pondering: how to make Christmas more meaningful and memorable.
I am praying: for many people these days.
I am thankful for: a house that withstands high winds, warmth, the quiet.
I am wearing: yup! still in my pyjamas and housecoat.
I am going: to the school everyday for the last week of volleyball practice.
I am reading: The Almond Tree and Food Matters. They're both really good!
I am looking forward to: the volleyball tournament on Friday. It's a joy to watch the students I've coached for six weeks play hard, do their best, and just plain have fun. I don't care if they win -- I just want to see them having fun and doing their best!
In the kitchen: I really need to get back to menu planning! Some baking needs to be done, and supper may have something to do with turnips or squash. I haven't decided yet.
I am creating: a neck warmer, some more doggie bow ties maybe?
One of my favorite things: Sunday nights when we can all stay in and relax.
A favorite scripture passage: "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Happy Monday, dear readers!!
