Looking out my window… dark. It was 70F earlier but just touching being warm enough to be outside without a light sweatshirt. We also had some sprinkles earlier which is expected for western Washington.
I am thinking… about how annoying all the SCANDAL-style reporting is on gymnastics. Tonight’s scandal: ALY RAISMAN IS GOING TO NUDGE OUT GABBY DOUGLAS FROM PARTICIPATING IN THE ALL-AROUND!!!!! WHAT WILL WE DOOOOOOOOOOOO?!?!?!?
I am thankful… for the discovery of Snow Goose Produce, a local seasonal produce market. I really wish the line for their ice cream hadn’t been out the door because it looked pretty good and I wanted some!
One of my favorite things… having the bed to myself. Waiting to Daniel to go back to sleep so I can put him back in his own bed and not have him taking up 2/3 of my bed.
I am wearing… jammies. Church clothes were a black top, black slacks, and black flats. The rest of the day, it was an indigo shirt, jeans, and my running shoes.
I am creating… a big boy blankie for Daniel. I’ve picked it back up and am working on the edging.
I am watching… the Olympics. Gymnastics just finished and the medal ceremony for US Men’s Swimming is going on.
I am hoping… for decent sleep tonight with this stupid cold.
I am learning… my limits in functioning while this sick.
In my kitchen… Dad made burgers and we also had corn from one of the local farms.
In the school room… Daniel is still off of school and will go back on the 30th.
Post Script… I thought this was interesting, especially as I’m one of those ladies. 🙂
Shared Quote… This is Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16 which was the passage I was lectoring this morning:
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval. By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible.
By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to set out for a place that he was to receive as an inheritance; and he set out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he stayed for a time in the land he had been promised, as in a foreign land, living in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he looked forward to the city that has foundations, whose architect and builder is God. By faith he received power of procreation, even though he was too old– and Sarah herself was barren– because he considered him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one person, and this one as good as dead, descendants were born, “as many as the stars of heaven and as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.”
All of these died in faith without having received the promises, but from a distance they saw and greeted them. They confessed that they were strangers and foreigners on the earth, for people who speak in this way make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. If they had been thinking of the land that they had left behind, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; indeed, he has prepared a city for them.”
