For Today

For Today
October 7, 2014

Outside my window... breezy, sunshiney warm day. We have to close the windows tonight though as tomorrow it will be warm again. I enjoyed the five days they were open.

I am thinking... that I am blessed.

I am thankful... that 9 months into serving in the Army, that my son is safe and healthy. I'm sending a care package today and hope enjoys his chocolate.

I am wearing... pink fit and flare dress, black capri leggings, black ballet shoes, hair is long and straight.

I am creating... schedules for doctors appointments as our insurance changes at the end of the month so I need to fit everything in.

I am going... to the post office today. 

I am wondering... if online school is a good thing for Bry.

I am reading... One Nation by Ben Carson, MD and listening to Love Letters by Debbie Macomber.

I am hoping... to be able to attend my niece's wedding in Ohio the beginning of next month.

I am learning... how to switch my blog to Wordpress.

Around the house... printing pictures to hang on the walls kind of like a gallery down the hallway.

In the kitchen... see yesterday's post (breakfast was biscuits and gravy).

I am pondering... whom I will vote for next month.

A favorite quote for today... “Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.” 

One of my favorite things... The Archers podcast

A few plans for this week: outside of work, errands, and church, just finishing the pictures and getting them hung.

A peek into one of my days from this week... My son getting his haircut


  1. Online school has been a wonderful option for my Anika!

  2. Thanks for the quotation. I read it to my son as we experienced an exasperating "hurdle" today.

    Your pink outfit sounds sweet and feminine.

    A hair cut around here is usually a momentous event for a certain two reluctant persons.

    Do people really eat biscuits and gravy for breakfast? I suppose it must make a nice change. (I'm teasing.) You have at least one Yankee reader who eats an crisp apple and then a bowl of hot oatmeal with a rationed drizzle of Vermont maple syrup.

    For his last three years of college my son took on-line courses and graduated.

    Yes, you are blessed.
    Joy, Karen A.
