Every now and then I am drawn to the Simple Woman's Daybook for a journal entry. It is like a breath of fresh air for me to go there and post my immediate thoughts at the moment. I sometimes sit here to blog and my head is so full of stuff that nothing profound comes through the fog. Other days I cannot wait to sit down because all night long something was brewing in my mind. Those are my favorite days. But on the foggy days the Simple Woman's Daybook is like crackers at a wine tasting....it clears my head like the crackers clear your pallette.Outside my window... It is an absolutely beautiful day, much to pretty to be stuck inside. The temperature is in the upper 60's and it is not even spring now. It will probably storm during our spring break....that is if it ever gets here. What a glorious day to Praise the Lord!
I am thinking... Of all the things I need to do this weekend. My house has suffered because of my many absences. I did not go see my mom during my planning period today so I would not be inclined to dwell on her. So far....so good.
I am thankful for... my family.
From the learning rooms... I am trying to teach my Spanish I students time. GROANS!
I am struggling... with my mom's dementia. I am going to talk to a pastor friend of mine and see if I can go and talk to him. CH Frank is my pastor right now...but he is too close to this and is not what I need to deal with my mom's rapid deteriorating condition.
From the kitchen... I smelled nothing this morning. Frank is out of town and I did not make coffee.
I am wearing... my new black sweater, black pants, a pink, red and black scarf. I am feeling pretty snazzy. I have one my black weejuns too.
I am creating... photo shop pictures this week. I also need to create my tax list for the accountant.
I am going... To try and enjoy Spring as it comes (I KNOW it's not really here quite yet)...and I am not getting to enjoy today...because I am inside.
I am reading... When Couples Pray. It is a 40 day program of 5 minutes prayer for couples. I am loving this book. It is a real intimate thing for me....I love prayer.
I am hoping...to retire in the next few years and keep my job through proration.!
I am hearing... my students talk after I told them not to. :-(
One of my favorite things... Actually two....Snuggling into a comfy chair with a good book or playing Words with Friends on my IPad.
A few plans for the rest of the week: School, cleaning, church, photo taking, blogging
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
Down an Irish lane in Killarney, Ireland. I loved this place and this trip. If you ever get a chance...you need to go. Of all the places I have been this little tiny island in the Atlantic is by far my favorite place on earth.
I thouight I would share a wee bit of Ireland with you in song. Happy Thursday!
