FOR TODAY March 13, 2016
Outside my window… rainy. It’s absolutely spectacular to have a rainy weekend here.
I am thinking… about some of the things that are happening this week. It’s not going to be as abnormal as last week but it will be relatively busy.
I am thankful… for the Dimetapp which finally helped get the kiddo to sleep at 1 a.m. after he woke up coughing. *shakes fist at all the pollen in the air*
In the kitchen… I think Dad is making steak tonight.
I am going… to try and get caught up on my temperature afghan this week or at least get caught up with recording the temperatures. (My illness threw me off a bit.)
I am wondering… the structure of the readings in the Coptic lectionary. (Laura will have an email in her box tonight. :))
I am reading… Calmness by His Holiness Pope Shenouda III. I still have Accidental Saints by Nadia Bolz-Weber on my NOOK and got a little bit of that read this past week.
I am hoping… to get some walks in this week now that the bronchitis is (almost) gone and the rain should be going away. Now if only the bursitis would take a hike!
I am looking forward to… the games night on Saturday. Bob is making red beans and rice and someone else is bringing corn bread.
I am hearing… Coptic liturgical music (I’m keeping their Lenten fast so I’m checking out their music) and my dad drilling various things into walls.
A Daniel story for today… when I took the precious sweetling to Target on Friday to get his happy meds refilled, I was telling him “first shopping, then toys.” (First/then statements are an ABA thing.) Daniel’s response: “OK. Buh-bye.” I seriously need to record myself saying it the way he does because it was ADORABLE.
Around the house… Dad is attaching towel rods now that the painting of various bathrooms is done.
A favorite quote for today… I found this on Facebook and thought it was appropriate.
One of my favorite things… a fire in the fireplace on a rainy night.
A few plans for the rest of the week: catching up on things tomorrow morning, psych appointment for the kid on Tuesday, knitting/crocheting group on Tuesday night, morning prayer/Bible study/choir on Thursday, psych appointment for me on Friday, and games night on Saturday.
A peek into my day… I love this cover of “The Sounds of Silence” by the artist Disturbed. I’m a huge Simon & Garfunkel fan so I appreciate how he was faithful to the original song while giving it kind of a metal spin.
