May 16, 2011.
Outside my window...rainy, rainy, grey, grey, rainy, rainy, grey. Seven days of rain, apparently. It's supposed to be sunny on the long weekend, which is good, because my sister is getting married on Saturday.
I am thinking...I kind of have mixed feelings about my sister's wedding. Only because weddings are usually such happy occasions, with high hopes for a long and bright future together. Even all the cards say that, so it's kind of bittersweet. They were planning to get married even before he was diagnosed with his brain tumour in December. It's not likely they'll have too much time together, but I think this is their way of showing everyone how much they love each other.
I am thankful for...some productive writing time this past week. I worked on my non-fiction project, The Scarlet Thread.
From the kitchen...fresh pike, caught by a friend of ours, mashed potatoes, white gravy, veggies, and canteloupe.
I am wearing...jeans, a pink top, and a purple sweater.
I am reading...A Tailor Made Bride by Karen Witemeyer, on my Kindle. I'm still navigating my way through it.
I am hoping...to get the rest of the garage cleaned and organized. I got 3/4 of it done on Saturday. I worked hard and was sore afterwards. What's that verse? "I'm too weak to dig and too proud to beg." I'd best stick to my job. My husband is going to hang a peg board in the garage, so I'll be able to get most of the stuff up on the walls.
I am hearing...the train.
Around the house...our girls have started their two-month summer courses. My youngest is still looking for a summer job. My husband is busy at work. My mom is not a dog person, even though she wasn't opposed to us getting Kody. She doesn't appreciate his "puppyness". Maybe she'll like him better when he's older and more sedate. I have an appointment booked with and ENT Doctor (ear,nose and throat), for June 3rd. I guess that's pretty good for a specialist, although I'd prefer earlier. By the time I see him, I'll have had this symptom for three months.
One of my favourite things...seeing something in Scripture for the first time, even though I should have noticed it before. Beautiful.
Some plans for the week...work four nights. Ugh! Work on the garage. Drop off the dog at doggie daycare while we're at the wedding. Church on Sunday. Maybe have a friend over Sunday night.
