FOR TODAY... from Cheryl’s Daybook

Tuesday ~ April 20th, 2010

Outside my window...
~ it is cool, the early morning air smells sweet

I am thinking... ~ about the teaching we listened to over Sabbath

I am thankful... ~ that the 19th passed without another tragedy

I am wearing... ~ still wearing my pajamas, ~ barefoot

I am remembering...
~ some scenes from another April that will be forever engraved on my mind

I am going... ~to work on the house today, schoolwork, and hopefully play in the dirt (the garden, not the dust inside)

I am currently reading... ~ Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs

I am hoping... ~for lots of sunshine (& Sonshine) this week

On my mind... ~ my sister

Noticing that...
~ my to do list exceeds my energy gage more often than I like

Pondering these words...

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

From the kitchen...
~ the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, later today grilled chicken

Around the house...
~ all is still quiet, peaceful

In the barn
~ we have a sick nanny goat (Buttercup)

One of my favorite things ~ family

From my picture journal:

From a field trip.

Giveaway Question of the Day...

    Thanks, everybody, for commenting!


  12. Nice entry. What is Here Burns My Candle about?

    Candle scent--Vanilla.

  13. Hi Amy,

    Thanks for coming by and commenting.

    Here Burns My Candle is historical fiction, that is set in Scotland in the 1700's. It parallels the Book of Ruth. I just started it last night, so haven't gotten very far. However, I always love Liz's books, so I know I won't be disappointed.

    Have you read any of her books?


    Posting this here and in your comments.

  14. Glad I found your Daybook. Trusting your anxiety about the date will ease. Thanks for coming over to see my page and your kind comments etc.

  15. This is beautiful. Where was the field trip? Looks like something we would like. I hadn't thought about baked bread, which reminds of cinnamon rolls. My house always smells like beans and corn bread. If I have them I heat of cloves in water, it helps.

  16. Hi T.MOM, actually it was local. There is a group here who have formed and they work very hard at not allowing the history of our area (Pontotoc County) pass away.

    The lady featured is Dr. Ann Kleeper. She was our children's doctor for years.;-)


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It is always a joy to hear from you.
