Outside my window... is my own little patch of land. I am already dreaming of how to plant it in the spring. Maybe an herb garden under the kitchen window. For the veggies, I may make several small raised garden beds. Oh, warm weather, please hurry up!
I am thinking... of all the changes 2010 will bring to my family.
I am thankful for... a safe return from my parents house.
I am wearing... sweats, socks, and my glasses. It's early and we got home late last night.
I am remembering... how well all the cousins played together. They are good friends.
I am currently reading...my Magnificat. We finally finished "A Tale of Two Cities". Next up for literature is "Crime and Punishment". I read with Sophie and Olivia because I have never read most of the books assigned to the girls. For myself, though, I just bought "An Introduction to the Devout Life". I am eagerly awaiting to open its cover and begin.
I am hoping. Still.
On my mind... organizing the house. I am actually really looking forward to this day. I like having a place for everything.
Noticing that... praying for a specific thing to happen requires infinite patience, the virtue I struggle with the most.
Pondering these words... from the Magnificat.."Christmas is a season for song, for God's love reaches from heaven to earth and earth to heaven in the incarnation."
From the kitchen... truly bare cupboards! I used everything that would go bad before we left, so I will have to go to the Commissary today after I plan our weekly menu.
Around the house... slowly the children are waking after a long journey home yesterday. Finding the gifts from Christmas we did not take with us and getting excited all over again.
One of my favorite things~ The feeling I get when I walk into our house after having been gone for days. Home is good.
From my picture journal... the view from the window where I type.
