Reflections on the Day

Reflections on the Day – November 14, 2008


Reflections on the Day for November 14, 2008.
The sun is spilling out from the clouds making everything golden.   

Plans for today – Is it Friday already?  My goodness, where has the week gone?  Today I will work on getting a few things done… wow.  Friday already.

I am wearing – My olive corduroy pants and the snap button top.

I am feeling – Slightly congested.  I think my almost ten week long cough is getting better, I had xrays done this week and they say my lungs look fine.  It is to the point where I wish they would find something so I could do something about it.

I am hearing –  Amazing Grace on the radio.  I love the line “The earth shall soon dissolve like snow, The sun forbear to shine, But God who called me here below,  Will be forever mine.”  It reminds me of watching Amazing Grace I had heard good things about the film and was not disappointed.

I am thankful for – A decent day weather-wise to get some fall yard work done.   Oh, and though it seems silly – yesterday was the release of WoW’s Wrath of the Lich King expansion.  Kyle and I both enjoy the game and we have never picked up any of the limited edition packs, this time we hoped to get them but they were sold out of the Collector’s Editions within a day or two of when they were available for pre-order.  I was sort of disappointed.  Yesterday, my dad (who also plays) called and let me know that Fred Meyers had the CE available.  I popped down to my store and they had none on the shelves, they had been open at midnight to sell them.  I asked and low and behold there was a box of stock that they had missed in the selling extravaganza the night before which had a couple of collectors editions in it… that I got – for the regular price not the insane $129 I am seeing them for now.  Woot!  Little baby dragon is mine… Joy!

In prayer – Nadine, Zachary, Granny and Pat.

The Children:

Ashley – Was doing the moody-blues teen thing last night.
Rachel –  I am waiting to hear back from her teacher…. tap, tap, tap.  Apparently she got into a person’s yard and ate a rose while out walking while at school.
Christopher – Was very excited yesterday that his math (fractions) click yesterday.
Hannah – Is starting to read really well.
Joshua –  Yesterday was a rough day for Josh.  Hopefully today will be better.
 Woke up this morning and told me she was wearing a night-gown.  It  is a very pretty night-gown.  She is just too sweet.

The Homefires:

Kitchen – Pizza night!  woot!
Craft-room – I am cutting out a pattern today.
Music – Sarah might be my most musical child at the moment.  Yesterday she was sitting at the piano gently picking out one note at a time while singing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. Now, mind you, none of the notes were actually correct, but it was very cute.
Lucky Room of the Day –  The bathroom.

My pleasant thought for the Day –

 “For me prayer is a surge of the heart, it is a simple look towards Heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.”
~Saint Therese of Lisieux
