Reading ... I'm reading John in the Bible, and adding in a chapter or two of Psalms every morning as well. I find the Psalms so encouraging and soothing. They become more and more precious to me.

In fiction, the Anne of Green Gables series has still not been completed though I started a while ago already. I also have Garlic and Sapphires here waiting to be read again. I loved it the first time I read it, and am looking forward to enjoying it again.

In non fiction I read Life Changing Manga of Tidying Up last evening(Basically the graphic novel version of cleaning Konmari style) It was weird. If it had not been a super fast read I would not have finished the book. I won't be thanking inanimate objects, clapping at books to wake them up, or sprinkling salt in bags. I also won't be recommending the book to anyone else. Like I said ... weird!!!

Watching ... The gentle mizzle outside the window and the steady drip drip of water from the small leak in the gutter along the front porch roof.

Listening ... to the sweet chimes of the wind chimes outside my window as they sway to the movement of the gentle East wind this morning.

Cooking ... last evening I made barbeque pulled pork sandwiches, only I used the left over beef roast instead of pork to make it. It turned out quite tasty,which say something since I don't usually care for beef.

Cleaning ... nothing that exciting. I cleaned the refrigerator out yesterday. I try to do it every week to keep it from getting to be a big project. Something had spilled so it took a little more effort than usual to clean it.

Wearing ... a mint green dress. I look as if I'd be ready to celebrate Easter.

Playing ... we played Hoagie, In a Pickle, and Fruit Punch yesterday. Each happens to be fun, fast, and don't require a lot of strategy. Sometimes it's fun to simply play for fun!


  1. I enjoy hearing about your life and the things that you're doing. I have been writing out the Psalms for the past year or so. I finished and began again. It's amazing the things you see as you're writing. I have read through the Psalms dozens of times in my life and I'm finding new things each time I write them!
    Wishing you and your family a wonderful weekend.

  2. I need to look up these games, to play with the girls. I want your recipe for the pulled pork beef sandwiches!

  3. Some books look like they may a good read and turn out not that great. I've had a few like that.

  4. I have never heard of any of those games. I am sure that I will have to find out about them.

  5. To avoid having to clean the entire fridge at once, I tackle one shelf each Monday morning. The trash goes out Monday night, so I can dispose of any 'science projects' that have accumulated. The fifth week, I do the little freezer over the fridge. The big upright is done twice a year - whether it needs it or not!

  6. Sorry about the disappointing book, but great about the rest of it, especially the playing games just for fun.

  7. I have several half read books for that very reason..they look good but ugh...
    I so enjoy reading about your life and I will have to look up those games too. they are all new to me...Having fun for the sake of just having fun together is the very best!

  8. I popped by to catch up on the happenings at your house. I know you're always busy caring for your little family.
    I love the sound of wind chimes too. Sometimes in winter they get really bashed around by wind but so far they've survived.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
