Outside my window... clear blues. 73 today, heading towards 83 by Friday. (In February. Time to move.)
I am praying ... for my Pastor's wife. She's got intake at 9:30 and surgery at 1:00. A skillful surgeon, calm and loving support staff, and peace that surpasses understanding.
I am thankful... for Lauren's safe return home. She was only at her dad's, but I'm always more at ease when she's home.
In the kitchen... nothing yet. A turkey will go in the oven soon, and later there will be mass cooking for tonight. The girls cook and feed themselves and a few others on Monday nights at orchestra, as there are several that are there through youth and adult. Makes for one hungry crowd.
I am creating... a cleaned out master closet, and a decorated weekly spread in my planner (this week's challenge - pick a shape and repeat). Yesterday I turned a few of Piotr's oxford shirts into nightgowns. Cute!
I am going... to deliver the girls to a gig tomorrow morning and go enjoy a coffee and study time somewhere quiet while they do their thing.
I am wondering... how not to destroy my children. I've been observing other children be slowly destroyed, a little bit here, and little bit there. It makes me wonder - where am I doing the same thing?
I am reading... Discipline - The Glad Surrender - again. Tore through it quickly the last time around and need to dig in this time.
I am hoping... that we get to finalize some TN business soon.
I am looking forward to... Saturdays' Regional Festival. The girls have been working so hard, and the music sounds amazing.
I am learning... about discipline, my own lack of.
Around the house... routines humming along.
A favorite quote for today...
for good deeds. It's as simple as that. It was God's idea. He did
the designing. He expects us to work, just as the designer of a
precision instrument, if he understands the principles involved and
designs it accordingly, expects the thing to work. It is no great
credit to the instrument if it does."
Elizabeth Elliot - Discipline -
The Glad Surrender.
One of my favorite things... the 'post work-out' status, which means it's over and I did it. :)
A few plans for the rest of the week... clean the master closet in this week's prep to move, enjoy my Monday night off, run the girls to a gig Tuesday, World Tour Wednesday, Regional Festival concert Saturday, church on Sunday. That's enough.
A peek into my day...
I wonder what it will look like by the end of the week?
