December 21st

FOR TODAY... from Bev's Daybook

Outside my window... Dawn is here and with it a promise of another mild day of 9 degrees

I am thinking... about about what to do with my granddaughter today

I am thankful for... the mercies and protection and guidance of a 'gracious' God

I am wearing... green jeans later on today for shopping and clogs as they are so comfortable and versitile, for now it is pjs. as this is the first home time i have had in a long time it seems.

I am remembering... a special decoration i made years ago out of pistachio shells around a styrofoam ball with a red ribbon.  i hope i can find it now.

I am going... to make a list of what i have to do today including a baby shower that will be held today at the church.  they will use my pink christmas decorations that we had for womens ministry meeting

I am currently reading... Buyteko Breathing

I am hoping... that my children will be safe today and find a blessing in keeping the Father of heaven in their lives

On my mind... well!  it is nice to write this again after another month and to sit in from the of pellet fireplace enjoying its warmth

Noticing that... i have three kids that were born this week on christmas day---oldest daughter and two years later twin boys

Pondering these words... "She turned to the frost-covered window and scratching a small opening with her fingers, she pressed her face to the pane to look out on Christmas Day. An angry wind swirled heavily falling snow, piling drifts in seemingly mountainous proportions. She could not even see the well at times for the density of it."...Love Comes Softly  i am going to leave this quote up posted by  our host,  just because i love it.

Ephesians 6    And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

From the kitchen... all kinds of sprouts and green salad and biscotti

Around the house... Christmas decorations to put up , general things to do

One of my favorite things~ poinsettias

From my picture journal...this is for gifts to wrap.....

A month has gone by

FOR TODAY...november 16, 2009
i looked at the last entry and a whole month almost has passed and it has been that long since i have a few minutes to sit down and actally write, so here it is......

Outside my window... well between the flowered curtains i can see that it is still dark out--quarter after seven

I am thinking... i have probably said it all this morning but right now i keep seeing shadows move and i am thinking i am going to have to get one of those ultrasonic plugins to scare mice away.  they don't eat the poison anymore. 

I am thankful for... for this week off, my boss has gone to San Diego,  how do you spell that!!, for a seminar, it has been nice to be at home as i am sorting junk and moving it around and trying to get rid of it - threw out a little bit---hahahha

I am wearing... well wouldn't you know it,, its almst like when the phone rings when you are in the is white.....

I am remembering...the times when my mom was alive and the times i would phone and dad would answer the phone with OH! Hi Buff,,,,,hey Orlo...its buff come to the phone...

I am going... probably going to Smithers today, that is town about 45minutes away.....and bringing my kids the junk i sorted out so they can throw it away...hahhaha

I am reading...just magazines--Mary Janes Farm,  Romantic Country decorating because it has pink in it  and e-Sword on the computer--a bible platform

I am hoping... that i will be able to read a few of your entries, that i will get a decent paycheck after this month, that God will answer a couple of prayers for today and that each of you wil have a good day full of blessings to put on paper

On my mind... well that is almost the same as i am hoping and remembering and thankful and thinking......

From the learning rooms... the learning rooms of my mind tells me to be careful what and who i critisize, to be more understanding of other people--there is always a reason what they do and to remember the issue behind the action.

Noticing that... it is getting daylight now and there is still the same snow out as was yesterday

Pondering these words... a little clipping my mother had saved---it is funny how you never get too old to learn some new ways to be foolish

From the kitchen...Creamed eggs on toast for breakfast, gren salad with pears, feta, pecans and lemon dressing for dinner and am going to make some hard bread---now aren't i just absent minded for a moment what is it called.........

Around the house... lots of boxes to put away and christmas decorations to sort out and a womens meeting to get ready for, clothes to wash and get ready for work tomorrow

One of my favorite things~ i just love this old couch with white sheets covering it and green pillows with a lace one too

From my picture journal...

I am hearing...the cold wind swaying the trees, crows talking, train going by, we went to a friends house the other day and the train went by and right after that the coyotes started to howl. Every time!!!!

Around the house...just about got everything organized, a young couple will be spending the weekends here and someone will be waering my plants. Garden is rototilled for the most part. When i come back i will get two loads of manure and have it set for the winter. Still need to get underneath the trailer and insulate a few pipes. i have been putting it off till the last minute.......
