23rd Psalm

Yesterday..............the grandeur of a storm

FOR TODAY (August 12, Monday)...

The Lord is my Shepherd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

Outside My Window...Have you ever seen those mornings when you wake up, glance out the window and the sun is just at its best in promising its going to be a great day, yet the grey clouds that are silver lined are all around, little bits of blue sky showing in the background, you rush to get a picture and the moment is is gone. batteries are dead. But what a beautiful morning! Still I caught the tail end of the rising sun.
and much later here it is and you can see the scarlet runners beginning to open up by my bedroom window where i can reach out and grab a bean when they get large. They are so yummy raw... I see the lady next door who lost her husband several years ago but still keeps going with bringing in her hay and wood and selling bread at the flea market. She is out walking with her red sweater on, dress and jeans underneath picking up stray bits of garbage on the road........

I am thinking... Oh! that poor bird. He just flew into my window... It has been a really long weekend and I have enjoyed it because i did some shopping and because it was nice to do things around home and get paid for it from holiday pay!!!

I am thankful for... neighbors who lent me their truck to go pick up a bed, my sons who built the addition to put it in, paychecks, the rain is lovely too, all the 50 so birds that are feeding at the feeder that is empty now but there is almost half of it on the ground!!! Bananas!!

From the kitchen... Baking bread again, dehyrating bananas into thin strips - they are just like candy. last year i did blueberries and cherries-very good!!! making a couple of cheesecakes to sell, maybe a tray of cinnamon buns too for work

I am wearing... yellow shirt-i love yellow and could only wear it when i got older but it has to be a lemon yellow and brown cargo jeans that roll up from the cuff. and brown rubber slippers

I am creating...

I am going... I have already gone to Terrace but today i stay at home, will go to the garbage dump to get rid of junk and paper that the bed was wrapped up in, tomorrow is work again

I am reading...Bible on the life of John.

I am hoping... so much that my oldest daughter will come here to stay for a year, same wish as last week

I am hearing... a train in the distance, cries of a family who has lost a wife in a car accident this weekend, a daughter who is on life support, the laughter of a wedding, the engines of a truck as new owners move into their home, groans as we decide wether to keep our school going, prayers of all for their children and work and life

Around the house... organizing the computer and sewing rooms, burn the cardboard that was around the bed, check my compost worms

One of my favorite things...Handcream -

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: no plans yet

Here is picture thought I am sharing... this is BOB, a dog i used to own who i gave away to a farm who had big dogs and lots of room to run around in---- i really miss him but i wonder what he was thinking on top of my car????? He is a Great Pyrnee with something else
