Daybook 2-21-11

A photo thought

Outside my window…pewter sky and the occasional dry leaf flip-flopping by in the wind.
I am thinking…how nice it is to have a calendar with big blank boxes after the busy week we just had.
I am wearing…pj's since the boys have no school today we are staying cozy all morning.
I am hearing…flying, giggling, boys leaping off beds upstairs.  Anytime I hear crying now I expect to go to the ER until someone yells, "Don't worry, there's no blood!"
I am thankful for…my husband being home later than usual this morning, the big bowl of budding tulips from a friend, this new day.
I am going…to the park to meet friends and enjoy the warmer weather, to Target for a coffee to bring to the park!, and home for playtime in the backyard with the boys.
I am hoping…to find the instruction paper for my son's book report due this week.  I think I may have tossed it in the recycling bin.  He read a biography of Albert Einstein and needs to share it with his classmates this Friday.
I am praying for…Terri as she prepares to leave for Germany and an experimental treatment.  If you could please continue praying too?  Her husband told me yesterday that she has regained some speech.  God hears our pleas!
I am readingRhythm of Life by Matthew Kelly.  Almost finished but life still not totally in rhythm!
I am pondering…a new soup idea I have and must try.  Pot-sticker soup sound good?  My boys love sushi and pot-stickers.  I brought some home on Friday and all the sushi is gone but no-one opened the pot-stickers.  Itching to get into the kitchen now...
God is leading me…toward family prayer.  Last night after dinner and baths we lit candles and prayed the Glorious Mysteries together.  My toddler fell asleep in my arms and I felt the graces all around us as we put them all to bed.  My husband wants to do that every Sunday night.  I am so grateful for his leadership.
In the kitchen…tonight is left-over Lentil Tomato Soup,  later this week we'll have chicken enchiladas and some kind of salmon.  Still have birthday cake to finish so no need for sweets.
Around the house…more organizing hot spots to cover.  Most pressing - my toddler's clothes spilling off the shelves in my closet and my older boys' bookshelves, also spilling over, 
One of my favorite things… my new Shark cordless bare floor vacuum.  Over the past few years I have gone through four Swiffer vacs and they always die out.  I bought this at Target over the weekend and even got a $15.00 Target gift card back with the purchase. It is sublime!
