A busy day in January

For today--- from my daybook

Outside my window... it has been warm and maybe a chinoock is blowing by for the last couple of days, and raining and very windy,  right now it is five in the morning and dark
I am thinking... all night in my sleep how nice it is to breathe and wondering how i will do a breathing presentation...and how nice it is to sleep and let the world go by!!!!

I am thankful for... for peace and quiet even though i have had too much lately, for time off work, for green salads, that God is a joyful God

I am wearing... nothing new...same old ....pjs this time of morning....same old but very comfy jeans and shirt for the rest of the day

I am remembering... many years ago when I first moved to this valley, how empty the trailer was and how i slept on the floor in the living room with one mattress and a set of outdoor christmas lights around the mirrors to give me light, and now I have a full house of many things.

I am going... to get ready for my dinner tomorrow with the other dental clinic, going to Smithers today to shop,

I am currently reading...just magazines that i have around the house for projects to do and to dream of doing....hahaha..that is the only way it gets done!!!!!

I am hoping... a few of you or more would come by my facebook group and join me and the ladies there...just look for "Common Ground"...that sounds interesting for today......

On my mind... many things today--empty garbage, go shopping, icy roads,  things to say for presentation, how my kids are, how to save money to go to Bolivia again or is it somewhere else i need to go????

Noticing that... i am always the largest person in pictures and i need to get out and exercise and start to eat healthy again...groan ....but that should be easy right!!!!!

Pondering these words...Gen. 2:7....And God formed man out of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life...and man become a living soul.

What joy it must have been for God to give man life after forming every little cell and artery and hair and layering the skin across the dusted form of this man,  after breathing into him and giving him the smile of life and a mate to enjoy.  these are the things God cannot do---make our choices for us, give birth--although He can create--but what joy in his heart to give us these things

From the kitchen... couscous and red quinoa for breafast with raisins and cream!!!!

Around the house...well this may sound really silly but i put up the rest of my christmas decorations last night just to finish things off and enjoy the end product.  Christmas is so pretty..

One of my favorite things... oh yes and there was such a georgeous moon the other day....it was large and round except for the top as it was sort of rounded with the top taken off and it was orange in a subtle way

From my picture journal...

I always think the same things when I see myself in pictures...it is quite humbling!

It is depressing taking Christmas down, but I do enjoy the peace of it all once it is done!

Have a great week!

Such a lovely day! I was noticing my stack of inspiration magazines was getting quite low...time to find something new.
