The simple woman's daybook: 1
Outside my window - no sun today only grey skies but I doubt it will rain so the towels on the line should dry as there is a light breeze.
What am I thinking - about my youngest son who has gone for a walk along a Gorge with a couple of his friends and the parents of one. As the weather isn't hot, it should be a very enjoyable walk.
What am I thankful for - my sons.
What am I wearing - a long black skirt with a purple long sleeve t-shirt and a sleeveless purple woolen vest (which as one large toggle at the front). Slippers on the feet for comfort.
I am going - nowhere today as it is a public holiday (Labour Day) - I am enjoying just being at home, but the next 4 days I will be at work.
I am reading - I am mid way through "Radical Womanhood: Feminine Faith in a Feminist World" by Carolyn McCulley. It has been a great read, just finished the chapter on the role of Christian men and women in marriage - compared to the "worldly/feminist view".
I am hoping - for some warmer sunny weather this coming week.
From the kitchen - tonight's dinner is defrosting - Moroccan lamb mince (spicy) which will be added to pizza bases with feta cheese and once cooked covered in spinach leaves and garlic/mint yoghurt.
Around the house - this morning I did a quick tidy up, load of washing is on the line and I cleaned out Ruby's kittty litter (which she is pleased about). My eldest son has just taken a boot load of old clothes, shoes and other items to the charity bin. We all did a spring clean of the cupboards.
What can I hear - the house is quiet, except for the sound of Percy Granger playing on the CD. Ruby is next to me looking at the computer screen, she is being as quiet as a mouse!
One of my favourite things - a quiet afternoon at home with the sound of rain falling.
A few plans for the rest of the week - make a birthday card for a 5 year old, scan in some old photos for the family photo album, phone my parents to see how they are and go to work.
Verse for the day - "And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses". Mark 11:25
My picture of the day - one of our ornamental fruit trees is in flower and last weekend I took some photos, this is one of them. Trees throughout the neighborhood are in flower and they look so pretty at the moment, however we only need a few windy days to blow the petals off the trees, creating gorgeous confetti in pinks and white.
