For Today: Monday, March 30, 2009
Outside My Window... The sun is finally peeking out, after hiding all day yesterday. (Appropriate for Passion Sunday, come to think of it...) But it's cold! Eek! I thought we were done with 30 degree weather!
I am thinking... about how much I love my country.
I am thankful for... living in the greatest country in the world, under the greatest Republic ever. I am thankful for freedom, more than ever.
From the kitchen... For breakfast, leftover pancakes and link sausage from yesterday. (Surprisingly, the pancakes tasted better!) For dinner: Baked Zita with meat/Italian sausage sauce, garlic bread and salad.
I am wearing... black pants, a cream mock turtleneck, mauve and black houndstooth jacket, silver necklace, and black flats. We have a guest coming in to work today.
I am creating... more mind maps, my book, and digital scrapbook pages.
I am going... to call our tax lady today. It's terrible. I have been dragging my feet the past two months. Geez.
I am reading... Dead Heat by Joel Rosenberg, Tribes by Seth Godin, and my new Envoy magazine issue. I also finished Davidson's Catering to Nobody and liked it so much, I borrowed another one of her mysteries, Double Shot.
I am hoping... to focus on my book outline this week. I also hope to download a new website design software program and play with it a bit.
I am hearing... The War Room with Quinn and Rose.
Around the house... The NetFlix envelope to return "Crash", new books from the library, my Bible that needs to be "tabbed" with the special tabs I bought from the Catholic bookstore.
One of my favorite things... figuring out a better way to do something. The mind maps is a way to get my ideas out of my head and onto paper so I can plan to make it happen.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Playing with the website design program, meeting with the man from church to discuss how we can update the website for a church ministry (more on that later!) writing, and getting the tax stuff in order.
Here is picture thought I am sharing. . . I don't have one. I wished I had taken some photos of our church with all the statues veiled in purple. I can't remember this tradition when I was younger but I like it. The veiling is a symbolic act to represent Jesus Christ drawing Himself away, being "hidden" as it were. And God's face was about to be hidden from His only Son, which is frightening when you think about it.
