For Today:  Sunday, January 31, 2016

Outside my window  Partly cloudy skies and a spring preview.

I am thinking...   About this year's a-z challenge and how I need to finish last year's.

I am thankful... 
  • for new possibilities and opportunities
  • for awesome worship today
  • for growing strength and health
  • for clean running water 
From the Workshop...  I've not gotten much time to create this week.  I should get cranked up this week.

I am reading...  Besides the books I listed before, I'm starting Leviticus in the Bible. 

Favorite quote(s) of the week:

“You can't build a reputation on what you're going to do." - Henry Ford

"Use your voice; you're the only one who has it." - Jon Acuff
I am looking forward to... 
  • A better week than last week.
  • Sunday's worship service.
  • The Parker Memorial Pancake 5k on March 5th.  I wrote about my first experience with it here.

One of my favorite things:  My bathrobe.  I've had this thing for 100 years.  It's old and way too big, but it's so comfortable.

A peek into my days:
I took advantage of the great weather this weekend and got out on the Ladiga Trail.

And now for something totally different...
Workout of the Week:  I didn't get to try the Pound class because of schedule changes, so I'll make another attempt at it this week, plus I signed up for swim lessons.  Hopefully they will go as planned.

Five Minute Friday Word of the WeekQuiet.

Scripture of the week:  Still working on this one.

Hebrews 5:13-14 - For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. (King James Version)


  1. We are supposed to get warmer temps this week and I'm not working and after seeing your picture of your bike I'm now hoping it will be nice enough for a ride here :) Have a great week!

    1. Thanks. Our weather has been stormy. It's cooled off some, but it's still nice enough to be outside.
