In the great outdoors…COLD! It has sleeted and iced in all parts of the state, but here we just have cold. I40 and I55 are at a standstill with miles of trucks and cars that can’t get thru. It’s crazy!
Within our walls…The curtains I spoke of a couple of weeks ago are finally hanging on our windows. I love them. I even hung Anna’s curtains in her room. We used Command hooks and it made it so easy. No hammers, no nails.
A heart of thanksgiving…
A heart of prayer…A friend of mine lost her father today. He was in a car accident Sunday and suffered three heart attacks since then. He was the grandfather of one of D&D’s best buddy’s. The loss is huge. He was both father and grandfather to their friend and D&D loved him so much. We went over today, just a little bit after he died to spend time with their friend. It was good for all three of them.
Random observations…Lemons in vases make me happy. I’m using them to decorate and they make me happy.
My silly children…
Thoughts from the kitchen…Things are going much better in the kitchen. Tonight we’re having spaghetti, much to the sadness of Daniel, he doesn’t like it at all.
What I’m reading…I don’t know the name of the book, but I do want to say I’ve started reading my Kindle again. I missed it.
Sounds of the moment…The Rocky song. Rocky 1-5 are on tv today, we may not leave the room.
What I’m wearing…black fleece pullover, jeans, and brown socks. Don’t judge, the brown socks matched what I wore to work, I changed tops but not socks.
On the calendar…Samuel has two games and a tournament this week. We are so very ready for this!
A favorite thing from last week…Samuel had a scrimmage game Thursday with another school, he told us not to come, but of course, we went. It was just the varsity team playing (we think Samuel will play some for the varsity team and the JV team), Samuel hadn’t played and we had stayed for about an hour and a half, it was cold, and David was sick so we went home. We left and he played two innings. I felt like a horrible parent. I wrote that last sentence in my journal. I told Stephen that he had played two innings and I wasn’t there(he was at work) and he said “you’re a horrible parent!” He didn’t mean it at all, and I knew then that I wasn’t a horrible parent. I loved how that moment with Stephen made me feel better.
