Daybook 2-7-11



Outside my window…quiet stillness.  Sun breaking through hazy skies.  Jack Frost was here last night.
I am thinking…about how many Superbowl Ads were uncomfortable to watch - especially with my 8 and 9 year olds.  Good thing they were asleep by the second quarter.
I am wearing…my favorite black pajama pants and long-sleeved top from Gillian O'Malley at Target along with fuzzy pink slipper socks.
I am hearing…"Who Am I" by Casting Crowns on Pandora.  It's a live version I have never heard before.  It will be in my head all day!
I am thankful for…my two year old's stitches healing perfectly, my eight year old's stitches coming out this afternoon, the return of health and energy to all of my family after a very long flu.
I am going… the dentist this afternoon.  Not my favorite thing to do.
I am hoping…to get back into my gym routine this week.  They have added some new Zumba times so I can make it more easily.
I am praying for…my Godson who turns 5 this week, someone who is praying to have another baby, my niece who is preparing for her confirmation.
I am creating…Valentine's cards and boxes for my son's party at school.
I am pondering…"Life is a self-revelation.  Life expands in direct proportion to our ability to reveal ourselves to others and to the world around us.  Yet most people spend most of their lives hiding their true selves and pretending they are somebody they are not."
Rhythm of Life by M. Kelly
God is leading me…to be unafraid.
In the kitchen…sloppy joes, lots of salads, and apple pie for my son who has asked me to make him one for three weeks straight.
Around the house…tackling the horrifying hall closet that has lost all semblance of order.  If I can bear it I will include before *gasp* and after pictures in my organizing post tomorrow.
One of my favorite things…that each morning I have the opportunity to begin anew.  To start over, to create, to love, to listen, to learn something new.

  3. You have inspired me, Misty. We live too far away from town to get to the gym but I am going to get back into the habit of exercising at home. All my usual routines sort of disappeared during the holidays. Too much sitting around blogging and not enough moving! God bless.
