Today is Lovely


Outside my window... it's damp and overcast. The snow is late, and I'm missing it.

I am thinking... about charity. I want to spend some time looking for stories from Christ's life that illustrate particular aspects of charity.

I am thankful for... comfort in Christ. This year has been a difficult season for us, and I'm grateful for His support and guidance.

I am wearing... jeans. tshirt. old grey sweatshirt. white socks. I'll have a ponytail soon. Pretty much the same as always.

I am remembering... when this used to be a meme. Looks like the host blog is not only inactive, but gone. That's a bit sad; I was hoping to link up again.

I am going... to take the kids to violin lessons, come back and eat quick, then head to the Pack Meeting tonight. Busy afternoon.

I am currently reading... I just finished Girl of the Limberlost, and I'm thinking that I need to get that in print: I listened to the Librivox. It was excellent. I'm still choosing the next one, but it'll probably be another Librivox, because I have a Christmas gift that I need to spend my after bedtime time on for the next little while, and a story is great company, now that the Daddy's schedule has him going to be so very early.

I am hoping... my kids make some good faces when I give them the cranberries they've been after me to let them taste. I've warned them, but I think they only hear "berry" and they're probably expecting it to be cousins to blueberries or something. They still want to taste; my camera will be ready. This should be good.

On my mind...getting that Christmas gift done. It's going to be close. My friend is loaning me a tool this afternoon. I'd tell you what I'm making but I'm afraid Hero will catch me!

Noticing that...I'm almost out of the tiny post-it notes that I use to mark spots where Hero is supposed to read. Gonna have to grab a few more of those.

Pondering these words... "for the works which ye have seen me do that shall ye also do; for that which ye have seen me do even that shall ye do" -3 Nephi 27:21

From the kitchen... I'm waiting for the Pineapple Turmeric Sauerkraut to be ready. I think I'm excited, but I'm also a little nervous: that's quite the combination. Those cranberries the kids want to taste are supposed to turn into a fermented relish, too, but I lost the recipe I was going to use, so I have to go find something that will work again.

Around the house... it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The Daddy found places for several of my nativities this year, which is awesome. We rearranged our furniture a while back, and lost some large flat places. Which has made it hard to display the nativities ever since.

From my picture journal... A conversation with Dragon about the differences between the Old Testament Laban (and that whole complicated family tree) and the Book of Mormon Laban to help him settle in his mind who is who and where they all belong in their various stories.

Cool thoughts, sounds like a Christ centered Christmas season at your house. 3 John 1:4.

Is this the Simple Woman's Daybook? It was moved a few months back. http://thesimplewoman.blogspot.com She'll start a new link up next week. I should do these more regularly. Such an easy way to blog (because I've been horrible lately) and it gets me thinking about the week.

This *is* the Simple Woman's Daybook! I was digging around in old posts and found it, but when I went to the old location, it's just... gone. How cool that there's a new site for it. Thank you!
