Reflections on the Day

Reflections on the Day – November 4, 2008


Reflections on the Day for November 4, 2008.
Today is election day.  The weather is alternating grey and chilly with bright  sunshine.

Plans for today – The ballots where dropped off at the  library, then we had lunch.   I want to work on getting some more work on the book shelves done today.

I am wearing  My slacks and a comfy top.

I am feeling  A little out of sorts.  The boys have been especially trying these past two days.  My chair broke.  I can’t believe it, but the back just snapped off.  Very depressing.

I am hearing –  Christopher walk himself through long division.

I am thankful for  Our new roof. If anything would have made to old one leak it would have been the past couple days of rain.

In prayer The election, Kyle while he is traveling.

The Children:

Ashley – Was so helpful last night.  She made dinner while I went to the store and got her a new bus pass.
Rachel – I keep forgetting to email her teacher.  I will do that next.
Christopher – Do you remember the pain of learning long division…. I do.  And if I had forgotten I have just been reminded
Hannah – Is very excited that she has been invited to a tea party this weekend.
Joshua –  I have never seen a child more into coloring pirates.
– Misses her daddy and has been a very good potty-girl.

The Homefires:

Kitchen – I want to remember to start sour-dough tonight.
Craft-room – There is a bit of sewing I am getting to and I need to take my machine in for its tune-up.
Music – Josh learned “When the saints come marching in” at CCD last night.  A couple of the children wore their Saint costumes to class and Josh was so sad and upset because he was worried that he would be the only child there in street clothes.  He was sort of mad at me.  But he was fine when he got to class and saw that most his class didn’t wear costumes.
Lucky Room of the Day –  The living room.

My pleasant thought for the Day – The election is over today! 

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you –
