Outside my window… chilly, rainy, overcast
I am thinking… gotta make thank you cards…gotta get the laundry put away…gotta get some books mailed out for Paperback Book Swap…gotta get dressed…love my coffee with peppermint mocha creamer…gotta get my camera fixed…gotta get back in the saddle again!My grandma getting sick, dying, then my getting sick right after and now fighting off some more nasties has really thrown me for a loop.
I am thankful for… Not having to eat beans and rice and water three times a day. Like the rest of the world does. My friend’s church is doing a five day “fast”–which means they are eating like the poor half of the world’s population. Isn’t that awesome!I am wearing… white pajama pants and a white long sleeve tee–cool vampy dark purple/grey toe nails.
I am remembering… how I thought I would get up early and get this post done–still working on it 1/2 an hour later
I am going…chiro, reflexologist, health food store –gotta get my immunity up and running again
I am reading…Lost Mission –It’s a great book, suspenseful–interesting, well written. It keeps my attention, but unfortunately my concentration is broken so often throughout the day I am having trouble getting it finished.
Here is a summary from the publishers:
An idyllic Spanish mission collapses in the eighteenth century atop the supernatural evidence of a shocking crime. Twelve generations later the ground is opened up, the forgotten ruins are disturbed, and rich and poor alike confront the onslaught of resurging hell on earth. Caught up in the catastrophe are…
• A humble shopkeeper compelled to leave her tiny village deep in Mexico to preach in America
• A minister wracked with guilt for loving the wrong woman
• An unimaginably wealthy man, blinded to the consequences of his grand plans
• A devoted father and husband driven to a horrible discovery that changes everything
Will the evil that destroyed the Misión de Santa Dolores rise to overwhelm them? Or will they beat back the terrible desires that led to the mission’s good Franciscan founder’s standing in the midst of flames ignited by his enemies and friends alike more than two centuries ago?
From the high Sierra Madre mountains to the harsh Sonoran desert, from the privileged world of millionaire moguls to the impoverished immigrants who serve them, Athol Dickson once again weaves a gripping story of suspense that spans centuries and cultures to explore the abiding possibility of miracles.
Thank you to Amy at Litfuse for a copy of the book to review
I am hoping… to actually get this post done before I have to leave…I am certainly not going to get the laundry put away like I had hoped. Why can’t children just sit quietly on the couch until I am ready to interact with them? I should have given birth to dollies.
On my mind…all the stuff I need to add to my to-do list so I can stop thinking about it!
From the learning rooms… Thanksgiving–several great books and a DVD from MommyLife’s list
Noticing that… there is really no such thing as “going smoothly”

From the kitchen… gotta get the menus done–everything just goes to pot when Mama’s out of commission
Around the house… Getting the carpets cleaned (as soon as I find the newspaper with the coupon and make the appointment)
One of my favorite things…my children. Truly.
