For Today, February 8, 2012…A glimpse into my day, just an ordinary day.
Outside my window…sprinkles of snow falling and then melting away.
I am thinking…about how the boys will be home very soon and we can all curl up next to the wood stove together with popcorn and hot chocolate and maybe even a movie.
I am thankful for…a fridge full of food, heavy blankets on chilly days, crackling fires, red curls, phone calls, unexpected lunch with my Brian, just living LIFE.
From the kitchen…the hum of the dishwasher finishing its final cycle… chicken thawing for buffalo chicken wraps… piles of filing on my desk. (I’ll get to it, I promise.)
I am wearing…brown, brown and more brown along with some green and my new peacock pendant from my mom.
I am creating…long lists of books to check out at the library tomorrow. I cannot tell you how much this thrills me.
I am going…to stay at home with my loves. Couldn’t ask for a better afternoon.
I am reading…The Blue Castle, Somewhere More Holy and The King’s Cross. It all just depends on the mood I’m in.
I am hearing…Bella-Girl sing while she paints next to me: here in the death of Christ I live.
Around the house…remnants of our Super Bowl party: popcorn pieces under my couch, squished floor pillows, black TV cables snaking from room to room (evidence of my Brian’s ingenuity), bean bag chairs, forgotten hats–I. love. college. students!
One of my favorite things… anticipation. There is so much to look forward to, isn’t there?
A few plans for the rest of the week…recovering from bronchitis is first on the list. But lots of errands and shopping and baking and cleaning and just doing what I’m made to do.
What happens matters, my friends… it all matters.
