Simple Woman #35

FOR TODAY    November 9, 2009

Outside my window... dark.  It's late.  Forgot to post earlier.  Oops.

I am thinking... about my boys.  One in CA, having a glorious time.  One seems to be recovering from a mild illness.  And another had a birthday today!  Tate is eleven!

I am thankful for... my family.  The immediate family, mostly asleep as I type.  And the extended family who generously love us :0)

I am praying for...  the CA contingent, that they are all healthy and having a blast.

I am wearing...  blue jeans, blue shirt, blue sweater.

I am going... to bed, momentarily.

I am reading... music!  How's that for variety?

I am hoping... Gunnar is truly well tomorrow so we can take Tate out and do something fun for his b'day.  (Postponed from today, to let Gunnar recover.)

I am hearing... beautiful music, in my head.  I'm just back from rehearsal.

I am remembering...  the amazing inspiring sounds of a 75-voice choir.

From the learning rooms...  not much going on this week, with Wyatt gone, Gunnar feeling blah, and Tate having a b'day :0)

From the kitchen... all done for the evening.  The dishwasher is gurgling away and the floors look mah-ve-lous, me having spent some time sweeping, mopping and waxing today.

Around the house... blessed quiet.  The sound of boys sleeping.  Ahhhhhh.....

On my mind... why do little boys' heads sweat when they first go to sleep?

Pondering these words...  Gunnar, enjoying creaming me at Monopoly, "I'm the typhoon!"  Or the tycoon.

One of my favorite things...  sleeping little boys :0)

A few plans for the rest of the week...  no soccer!  November is our rainiest month and I am gloating with joy, as I curl up in my warm, dry house with my boys and books.  We've been playing a lot of games too. 

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

I am secretly jealous of people who can hear the music in their head. I would so love to be able to read and hear the music. Tone deaf and can't sing I'm sorry to say.
I'm sure typhoon is an apt description most of the time :0)
Your week sounds wonderful. Do hope all turns out the way you hope.

Do you play any instruments?
Those are absolutely beautiful blue eyes.
I enjoyed your daybook, have a blessed week.

Dropped in to read your daybook. I hope your son is better today and the birthday celebration brings each one joy. Have a blessed day.

I love that boy's big blue eyes. And his brother's big green eyes. And his other brother's big brown eyes.

Quite a gene pool, ya?

Do I play an instrument... I play piano very poorly. The rehearsals are for "Messiah", and I'm singing alto. I'm no great shakes as a singer either, but I can read music and hold my part :0) Fortunately the choir is BIG this year... almost 80 voices! Very, very inspiring.

And, Gunnar seems to be better - thank the Lord - so we are planning to go out to lunch and a movie today. :0)

Your post sounds so relaxing, I'm totally picturing the peacefulness of the evening!

Belated Birthday to Tate!! I hope you were able to do something fun yet.

I love the picture. He looks like he's having fun. I love to read music and I love to sing. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself at choir. Doylene
