outside my window….
it is grey and blustery. the wind is coming from the north and it feels so very chilly. it’s not snowing though, so i’m fine with that.
i am thinking….
about my garden plans, chicks i’ve ordered, what to make for supper tonight.
i am wondering….
how to be a good friend, how to make friends, how to maintain friendships. it’s funny how life changes the landscape of friendships as we grow older.
i am thankful….
for my family. today as i sat on the chair with Kate on my lap, i squeezed her tight and told her this is my favorite. actually, sometimes i look at each one of my children and think that i could never pick a favorite child because they are ALL my favorites.
i am wearing….
white skirt, striped shirt and shoes. nothing fancy on this day of housework and bread baking.
i am creating….
nothing really. i have a dress cut out, and no thread to sew it with. there are a number of projects we hope to get to soon, but for now, it’s just the normal work of housekeeping that occupies my days.
i am going….
to pick up the school children just soon.
i am reading….
Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell. very intriguing read, in my opinion. and, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier. a dear friend just sent this to me yesterday in the mail, and i was so delighted to get it! i love sitting down and reading through cookbooks.
i am learning….
that taking care of the earth we grow our food in is much more involved than a simple tilling and dropping seeds into the soil. being good stewards is not only limited to how we spend our money.
a favorite quote for today….
You become like the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose carefully.
