Hello friends! I haven’t posted in forever and I guess it’s because life has been a little bit boring around here. It’s a good thing because sometimes life gets so crazy that I can’t think straight! There’s been many nights where the boys and I just sit around and watch tv, read or play Uno. It’s been really simple and I can’t help but want the rest of the year to go like this!
We have had some excitement. The boys are getting some much needed haircuts! Here is a picture of C and K. E got a haircut last night but I don’t have a picture of him yet.
I haven’t had much time for reading. I’m not sure why, I just haven’t felt like reading or writing. I spend the evenings with the boys and then when they go to bed, I’m so exhausted I go to bed too! Must have something to do with it getting dark so early. I have been listening to my audiobook to and from work and that’s really the only reading that I have done lately. I just finished it.
This is a really good book and I had no idea that it was based on real people! I have never heard of Sarah and Angelina Grimke and their work as the first women to fight for equal rights for women as well as equal rights/abolition of slavery! I would encourage everyone to read this book. It’s very good!!
Thoughts of the Day
I am thinking: Making progress on cleaning!
What a beautiful morning! It reminds me of the verse from Psalm 118:24 ” This is the day the Lord has made; rejoice and be glad in it”. Such a beautiful sunrise, all brilliant pinks and oranges, and I rushed to get my camera to capture the Lord’s beauty…but it was dead. No problem, I thought, I’ll just use my phone. It was also dead. Wonderful. So, I had to gaze at the beauty alone and not be able to share it with all of you!
I instead will share this sunrise that was similar which I have borrowed this picture from http://www.farmgirlfare.com/2006/05/back-to-beginning.html
Friday was my birthday but as I was not in the office that day, all the girls from work took me out to eat yesterday at the Mexican restaurant as a late birthday gift. So sweet of them! I really love my coworkers!
When I got home, I got 2 letters and a late Christmas card in the mail! Yea! Such a great day!!
