For Today ~ Tuesday May 20 2008
Outside my Window… It is very early in the morning, the sun isn’t even thinking of rising yet. It’s very dark.
I am thinking…about how I wish I could get back to sleep. I woke to nurse the baby and simply could not fall back asleep. I prayed a rosary, and I laid there, but sleep simply would not come.
I am thankful for…Friends of like minds, the prayers and support that we offer one another. They add such sweetness to life.
From the kitchen…a steamy mug of coffee. Same as last week, I know. May explain why sleep is so elusive…
I am creating…A mental menu for the week with the things I bought at ALDIS yesterday.
I am going…to take our daughters to have lunch with dad at work today. I took the two little boys last week. I’ll take the girls this week, the two middle boys next week, and then the oldest boy the following week.
I am wearing…A pink and white flowered nightgown, red fuzzy slippers, and a brown blanket around my shoulders.
I am reading… All the wonderful enteries from The Simple Woman’s Daybook.
I am hoping…for a sunny day today. I could stand to soak up some sunshine, as could my children, tomatoes, and the baby diapers! 🙂
I am hearing…The hum of the fish tank behind me. It is eerrilie quiet in the house this early in the morning!
Around the house…stacks of the childrens school books and papers ready to be looked over and filed away.
One of my favorite things…The anticipation of a long holiday weekend.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…I still need to renew those drivers license. I need to start packing away school books after our first (and most likely last!) ‘school at home’ year, make campsite reservations for the boys whitewater rafting trip next month, plan an ‘at home’ date with my husband, wash and press a suit for Isaac’s First Holy Communion this coming Sunday, and purge the little boys’ bedroom.
