For Today… July 21, 2019
Looking out my window… sunny and in the 80’s. It’s also humid, which is not making me feel good. I don’t do heat well.
I am thinking… about my Camp NaNoWriMo piece. I’m around 3,000 words behind, so I think my character is going to have a long conversation or write a long letter.
I am thankful… for the opportunity to help with VBS for the last two weeks. I was washing dishes for it, and it was fun though exhausting!
One of my favorite things… calm and quiet. It’s in short supply in these parts with Daniel.
I am wearing… my “All Together Now” shirt from Old Navy and jeans capris.
I am creating… my my Camp NaNoWriMo piece.
I am reading… Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchet. I’m just a few pages in but very much enjoying it.
I finished Inspired by Rachel Held Evans on our 3 (!!!!) hour drive home from Seattle last Tuesday. It was wonderful though bittersweet as it is her last book with her passing on May 4.
I am hoping… the intensive ABA therapy with Daniel works. We are really struggling here.
I am learning… that my sleep deprivation is at a point where my body is just dropping into sleep at night, regardless of my plans to get some writing done.
In my kitchen… Cherry Delicious, a cherry cobbler recipe where the crust is made with cake mix and butter. I made two pans of it for coffee hour this morning, and I think I had one serving left of the gluten-free pan. (It was as good as the regular one, though the crust wasn’t as soft.)
In the school room… Daniel has ESY this week and then he’s off until the first week of September.
Post Script… an excellent guide to tipping.
Shared Quote… “What I love about the Bible is that the story isn’t over. There are still prophets in our midst. There are still dragons and beasts. It might not look like it, but the Resistance is winning. The light is breaking through.
So listen to the weirdos. Listen to the voices crying from the wilderness. They are pointing us to a new King and a better kingdom.” – Rachel Held Evans, Inspired
