Outside my window...kids that are late for school hurrying along the street, a cool wind moving the bare branches of the trees, some blue sky but mostly ominous grey clouds blowing in, yet there is still a sunny look as the clouds haven't covered the sun.. There is a big shift in weather forecast. Gone is the beautiful warm tshirt weather we've been having. There might be snow coming.
I am thinking...about our ladies study tonight. I have to lead it tonight as the leader cannot make it and I'm trying not to freak. It's always a step of faith for me when I do something like this. We are kicking off with this book and study tonight. I'm looking forward to it as it's an area I struggle with.
I am thankful for...my ladies group being a small, intimate group where we are comfortable enough to talk freely and where we practice grace. I'm gonna need it tonight!
I am wearing...dark blue jeans and a fooler purple top with tiny burgundy flowers, socks.
From the dayhome...a more relaxed day as last week was very busy. Still working on the letter "B", we'll practice printing it, learning the sign language for it, and today we're making a bat paper bag puppet.
I am reading...Snitch by Rene Gutteridge, I Second That Emotion (for study), Book of Romans
I am hoping...to get the little Christmas tree I want to send Kay in time to send it with the kid's when they go to a youth conference at her bible school/church this weekend. They couldn't get to it in the stock room yesterday.
I am creating...a less cluttered home. Slowly, very slowly, but surely.
I am hearing...the morning news on tv
Around the house...the dusting awaits. Again. Bathroom cleaning is on the list too. The big bedroom shuffles are finally done and we can settle into just organizing it a bit.
One of my favorite things...a Sunday afternoon with absolutely no committements, no place to run to, no things that need to be done. Rare, but I love them when they come around.
A few plans for the rest of the week...ladies study tonight, grocery shopping, making sure laundry is done for the kids, helping them pack for their weekend youth conference.
Here's a picture thought I am sharing with you...
I'm not the only one confused. Here's my Ohio Buckeye tree that thinks it's spring again. The thing dropped it's leaves a couple weeks ago when we had frost at nights. But now, can you believe, here it is November and because of the unusually warm, dry weather we've been having the last couple of weeks, the thing is budding out. Poor thing will be in shock if the forecasted snow comes today or tomorrow.
