Outside my window... dark, cloudy and lightning. Praying for rain.
I am thinking... ~ about some old friends I recently heard from. It blessed my heart.
I am thankful for... ~ the rain we have received!
I am wearing... ~ old, comfortable clothes….barefoot
always, barefoot (some things just don’t change, people)
I am remembering… ~ crazy things!
I am praying … ~ for a friend and for our troops around the globe. This is a difficult time for them, I’m sure.
I am going... ~ to try and get a little more organized and try to follow doctor’s orders.
I am currently reading... ~ I just finished Mine Is the Night by Liz Curtis Higgs. It is a sequel to Here Burns My Candle and it is the best book I have ever read! Loved it.
(It is loosely based on the story of Ruth.)
I am hoping... ~ for an early and long autumn.
On my mind... ~ Ann Voskamp’s blog, A Holy Experience, she had a beautiful post yesterday about her son. It is certainly worth your time to check it out.
Noticing that... ~ the days (or daylight hours) are already getting noticeably shorter.
From the kitchen... ~ going to be putting okra and squash in the freezer today.
Around the house... ~ laundry, always laundry!
From the learning room ~ getting ready for the new school year. For now, the boys are learning how to operate some new equipment and how to build and maintain a pond. (I love it when honey-hunk does the teaching and I get to sit back and learn too!)
One of my favorite things… Lemon Meringue Pie. I’m going to make honey-hunk one this week, along with his favorite meal ~ meatloaf with lots of homegrown veggies and cornbread.
A picture to share… ~

(I'm dreaming of fall.)
Quote of the Week… ~
“Whatever You may do, I will thank You.
I am ready for all; I accept all.
Let only Your will be done in me…
And I’ll ask for nothing else, my Lord.”
~Charles de Foucauld
(from, A Holy Experience)
