FOR TODAY April 22, 2014
Outside my window… dark. I’m blogging after midnight as usual. It was actually pretty nice yesterday.
I am thinking… about how I’ll make it through tomorrow. Daniel doesn’t go back to school until Wednesday and I think he’s getting cabin fever
I am thankful… that Holy Week is over and for a lovely Easter afternoon and evening with my parents on Sunday.
In the kitchen… dishes. Always dishes.
I am praying for… discernment, a special intention, for Daniel to get the hang of potty-training, and for my family to come to know Christ. (I’m a convert.)
I am going… to probably take Daniel with me to get some chai tomorrow morning as an excuse to get out of the house.
I am wondering… if we’re going to be getting rain up here. My dad was saying that they were supposed to get some in San Jose today.
I am reading… Jesus: A Pilgrimage by James Martin, S.J. — finally getting back to it after a brief break to get through the murder mysteries that arrived from the library for me over a very short period of time.
I am hoping… Daniel catches on to potty-training soon. I want this behind me.
I am looking forward to… Picnic on the Green at Daniel’s preschool on Friday. Parents bring lunch for their kids and we have a picnic on the lawn with them.
I am hearing YouTube hymns from my blog — listening to music I’ve linked in the past.
Around the house… dishes to do (my kingdom for a dishwasher!), laundry to fold, and a kitchen to clean.
I am pondering… life after June 15th.
A favorite quote for today… “If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” – C.S. Lewis
I actually brought this quote up in Bible study last week!
One of my favorite things… a quiet house.
A few plans for the rest of the week: ABA therapy for Daniel every afternoon this week, returning my flats to Payless on Wednesday or Thursday, counseling on Friday morning, Picnic on the Green afterwards, and taking stuff to be shredded on Saturday.
A peek into my day… Madeline Kahn and Grover singing the “Echo Song”. I sing it to Daniel frequently.
