I thought I would particpate, as I have enjoyed reading various blogs who use this daybook for blog entries.
The librarian in me notes with pleasure that the creator of this blog movement is a Christian woman whose house (I peeked at her other blog) I love. It looked very much like a home I would want to have!
Outside my window... is sunshine, red flowers in a balcony across the street, green leaves
I am thinking... that I need to finish the first draft of my paper this afternoon
From the learning rooms... I am learning a lot about through my class on 17th century literature – I will miss this class when it is over! I hope to write a series of short blog posts about what I am learning.
I am thankful for... a really good week so far. It has been great to have time to reflect and recover from this past year. I am thankful that with God I can still change and grow.
From the kitchen... I bought a pizza crust and need to buy cheese today. Will make the pizza tomorrow, I think.
I am wearing... a vintage black shirt and a khaki skirt and white Birkenstock sandals
I am reading... The Waves by Virginia Woolfe and am loving it. The Brothers Karamazov for a summer book club; it is wonderful to be reading this for the first time after being Orthodox almost 5 years. I am excited to see how this book can encourage me to spiritual growth. I am thinking of re-reading King Lear and am still reading literature in the 17th Century, especially Milton’s Paradise Lost.
I am hoping... to get news that my contract will start sometime in mid to late June. I am creating... various blog posts for the week
I am praying... for my friend Mark. He has been diagnosed with sarcoidosis which is a lesser known disease that has flipped his and his wife Brooke’s life upside down. I went to a small Christian schools with Mark from elementary school to grade 12. He is a strong Christian and I am so glad my Mother still passes on prayer requests from my old church so I know to pray for those I grew up with. Please pray for Mark and Brooke!
Around the house... It is almost totally clean! My cat Cleo is loving the warmer weather with the window and doors open. I am slowly putting more decorations up and am really happy about this.
One of my favorite things... other than my cat Cleo!! The books I am reading and the friends God has given me
A few plans for the rest of the week... paper writing, class, going to Home Hardware, reading more of The Brothers Karamazov
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
Taken on my way to my midterm (I got an "A" by the way!).
