FOR TODAY August 16, 2015
Outside my window… dark. It was over 100F in San Jose today which did not make me a happy Jen. We also have smoke from the wildfires in the northern part of the state so it’s not good air for walks with the small child. *makes mental note to go in and record miles walked in the last week on MapMyRun*
I am thinking… about things in the coming week.
I am thankful… for the time with my parents. It’s been a good week with them and I’ve gotten to get together with a few people including Rebecca.
In the kitchen… Dad made hot dogs again tonight.
I am going… to the store tomorrow for more apple juice for Daniel.
I am wondering… about a lot of things right now.
I am reading… The Alpine Yeoman by Mary Daheim for the third time. (2nd re-read this time.)
I am hoping… for resolution in some areas of my life.
I am looking forward to… a mall date with Rebecca to get some Giants socks. I’m going to my first MLB baseball game in a few weeks and it’s at Dodger Stadium so I can’t wear my Giants stuff. Before I even knew about the game, Jon and my priest were negotiating the terms. I can’t wear my Lincecum shirt (which I only have because they weren’t selling Romo shirts at Target) but I can wear Giants socks. I am also not allowed to boo Kershaw or Puig, which I think is completely unfair.
A Daniel story for today… He’s been taking over closets at my parents’ house and playing with his tablet in them.
Around the house… silence as I think everyone is likely asleep.
A favorite quote for today… “When I pray for another person, I am praying for God to open my eyes so that I can see that person as God does, and then enter into the stream of love that God already directs toward that person.” — Philip Yancey
One of my favorite things… Coca-Cola which is pretty much banned at my parents’ house – my mom got me some one night when I needed “comfort food” (I’m weird, OK?) and she was referring to it as “hemlock”. Whenever I’d take a sip, I would say, “mmmmm… minty!” (According to a murder mystery, hemlock tastes minty.)
A few plans for the rest of the week: drive back down to LA and whatever else comes up.
A peek into my day… Daniel and I in the redwoods.
