Mini Me: The Simple Woman's Daybook for Thursday, May 23, 2013

Outside my window …  Birds singing, my windchimes playing their song, and the smell of roses and honeysuckle in the air.

I am thinking...  about summer.  I want it to be a good one.  I survived winter, but I really don’t want to merely survive anything else.

I am thankful... for the ability to read.

In the kitchen...  Beef stir fry with some Brussels sprouts.  I am really enjoying my “new found” food.

I am wearing...
Celebrate Recovery t-shirt and Capri pants.

I am creating... Got several crochet projects going, plus I’ve got a few ideas for painted flower pots.

I am going... To the gym later (I need a nap before I go).

I am wondering...
about myself (as usual J )

I am reading...
Sunday School materials.  I started a new book by Dr. Henry Cloud today called 9 Things You Simply Must Do.  The first couple of chapters left me dumbfounded.  Ever since December, I have felt stuck in one place.  I’m learning ever so slowly how to get unstuck.

I am hoping...
that I’ll have a good week next week.

I am looking forward to... a better mindset.

I am learning… that survival is no way to live.

Around the house... A few chores.

I am pondering...   on how to live out my Christian life the way Jesus showed us how.  I’ve seen that we’ve had this whole thing quite backwards for a long time.  I’ve seen a lot of hate going on and much of it perpetrated by people who label themselves “Christians.”  I’ve also seen a lot of disagreements being misinterpreted as hate.  Since when does disagreeing with someone mean that I hate them?  Could we PLEASE get it together, people?

A favorite quote for today... “Avoidance of risk is the greatest risk of all.” - Dr. Henry Cloud

One of my favorite things... Those papery-blog things called books.  J

A few plans for the rest of the week:  I have no idea.

A peek into my day...  Auntie's "mini me" (my grandniece Kelviona) graduated from kindergarten this week.
