Sunday Reflections

Outside…
It’s 75°, sunny, and the sky is full of big fluffy clouds. I hope it doesn’t rain so we can get the yard mowed

Thinking…
About all those who lost lives or homes etc. during hurricane Matthew. My prayers go out to them all.

Thankful…
That we were spared any damage during Matthew. I thought it would be bad, but Hermine was worse where I live

Reading…
Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots by Jessica Soffer which is the Oct./Nov. pick for Cook The Books

Watching…
Doc Martin. I had never heard of this show until Tina posted about it. She was kind enough to send me a season of the show and now I’m hooked and watching all the re-runs on tv.  Love it!!

Fitness…
I’m still getting a lot of steps and strength training, but I’ve done something to my right wrist/hand. It’s really sore and a bit swollen, and I can barely stand to move it.

In The Kitchen…
Not a clue, might make something simple here, or maybe eating out.

Today’s To-Do List…
Relaxing all day, a bit of reading and watching tv

One of my favorite things:
My library system. Because of where I live, I can use three different counties libraries. That’s 18 different libraries!!

Pin It & Do It…
Sloppy Joe Nachos. Sloppy Joe, yes. Nachos, yes. But sloppy joe nachos? Hmmm. Not very healthy, but I’m sure wanting to see what the heck this tastes like

A Favorite Bible Verse…
Hebrews 13:16
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

A favorite quote…
“Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold, the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.”
Democritus

Sunday Reflections

Outside…
The sun is shining right now, but there is a 60% chance of rain around 3:00 this afternoon.

About about my mom. Today is her birthday. I miss her so much. I couldn’t have asked for a better mom. Love her always.

Thankful…
That the flooding near where I live wasn’t worse.

Hoping…
For less rain than last week, and not so much humidity.

Learning…
That there are two parts to a plan, which are figuring out what you need to do to accomplish it, and then doing it. I have trouble starting the second part.
