The Simple Woman's Daybook #97

Outside my window...the cicadas are chirping.

I am thinking...about how God's plan works perfectly even when we don't know how

I am thankful for...cooler weather and the chance to enjoy the last few weeks of summer break.

I am wearing...tan t-shirt and navy shorts that I've had since I was 14. They're PJ shorts now. ;)
I am remembering...catching frogs at the campground pond when I was 8.

I am creating...plans for a structured and organized school year during which much learning occurs.

I am going...to Columbus twice this week

I am reading...Colossians.

I am hoping...that Lukas is fever-free in the morning.

On my mind...remembering that the world too often sneaks into the minds of Christ-like people.

From the learning rooms...
Civil War studies and vision therapy.

Noticing that...Ava has a servant heart. 

From the kitchen...whole wheat pasta with ground turkey, onion, mushrooms, green pepper, garlic, fennel seed and a little EVOO.

Around the house...the windows are open and the air conditioner is OFF.

One of my favorite things...days like today with open windows, chirping cicadas, cool mornings and warm afternoons.

Praying for...God to provide for all our bills to be paid and for the remainder of curriculum that we need (science, Bible, history just to start our school year).

A verse for you...For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." Colossians 1:13-14
A few plans for this week... starting Lukas' vision therapy tomorrow (hopefully, if he's feeling better), spending Thursday night with Eric's folks, an eye appointment for me and taking advantage of Roscoe Village's Coshocton appreciation days this weekend. Oh! And the Canal Days parade. Can't wait!
