Outside my Window…grey skies, mostly green leaves, neighbors’ seasonal decorations
I am thinking…is it too early to visit the greatgrandparents? How blessed are we that we both have our parents still with us.
From the learning rooms…Isabella has adjusted to daycare/nursery school better than anticipated. My little hurricane has won the hearts of the staff and this is a blessing and a relief to us.
I am thankful for…this quiet week I am having since Himself is reuniting with his Navy buddies in another state. They spent months aboard ship in Viet Nam together and have a connection like no other.
From the kitchen…a clean stove that was soaked and scrubbed and has barely been used in several days! Still, we have a bounty in the house available to us and I am truly thankful.
I am wearing…Seattle Seahawks sweatshirt, jeans and running shoes.
I am reading…another murder mystery and my Bible.
I am hoping…to finish going through Himself’s bags and bags of cell phone bags with mostly no phones and see what is salvagable and get rid of the rest (I get a lot done when he is away…).
I am creating…a peaceful setting in the bedroom by getting rid of all the clutter.
I am hearing…Isabella play with her balloon from my niece’s shower yesterday…we were so happy to have something to occupy her!
Around the house…a dent made in the clearing of clutter (see a theme here?).
One of my favorite things…quiet and solitude being available to me on a regular basis. Though I love my family and friends, I cherish my time alone.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…to get as much done around here as possible before Himself gets home and to finally start the tape series I need to listen to and work through to help me grow in Christ.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…
How fast they grow.
Yes, you read it right. Himself is out of town at a reunion of some of the USS Princeton sailors he served with in Viet Nam. When he graduated from high school, his parents gave him the choice of college or the service. Fed up with school, he joined the Navy having never really noticed a "conflict" going on in a country called Viet Nam. He has never regretted it though he still has dreams occasionally about being there. There is no PTSD but he did see some terrible things.
The Boy and I have been living in peaceful co-existence since Friday. It is so good for us to have this time together even if we are on different schedules. He has matured so much since he started school and working. It’s good to be proud of him again.
Well, the coffee is fresh and hot at Greatgrandma’s house and she needs a dose of Isabella. I hope and pray that your week goes well. Let me know if you have any prayer requests and I will be happy to bring them before the throne of grace. g
A couple more things:
Tim! I love it when you stop by. Why don’t you have any entries on your blog space? It would be nice to be able to keep in touch.
Can anyone recommend a decaf tea that doesn’t taste like cardboard. Bromley is the best so far. Lipton is the worst. Not herbal – ew. Thanks!
