~ ~ ~ Hope For The Sweet Morning ~ ~
"For Christians, the beginning of the day should not be burdened and haunted by various kinds of concerns that they face during the day. The Lord stands above the new day, for God has made it. All restlessness, all impurity, all worry and anxiety flee before him. Therefore, in the early morning hours of the day, may our many thoughts and our many idle words be silent and may the first word and the first thought belong to the one to whom our whole life belongs "
I'd never read this part of the post on The Simple Woman's Daybook, but today is a particularly anxious day for me, Dr. appointments always are. One cannot help but wonder what are they going to find? I started to do this meme for this very reason, to lay out my day so as not to have it be so demanding. So here it goes...
Outside my window...
This rose has given me a colourful morning from early spring, it has 9 long stem flowers on it today, and buds awaiting. It's hot and overcast today, and feels like rain. Finally.
I am thinking...I need to decide on what cake to bake for a wedding cake. I'm thinking walnut torte. It's got great body and can hold a second, and even a third layer.
I am thankful for...for my mother's friend who gave me this recipe, it was quite an ordeal, but in the end it's an all time favorite.
From the learning rooms...I'm stopping by the nursery today (after my Dr. appointment) to find out how to prune this great rose properly.
From the kitchen...chicken and potatoes.
I am wearing...my pyjamas.
I am creating...a mess, really, I've decided to clean closets, and things just don't fit back the way they are suppose to. This has been an ongoing project for this week.
I am going... to have a mammogram, and bone density done today.
I am reading...The Last Great Dance on Earth, Sandra Gulland
I am hoping...to not have to wait too long at the appointment, it's so stressful.
I am hearing...a pigeon on my roof,
Around the house...very messy, I've washed floors, walls, and vacuumed ceilings, and moved furniture, packed up things that are not being used, and found things I was looking for. I still haven't put away my Christmas Ornaments after sorting them out, I just love looking at them, I think in the rush around Christmas, I don't get to enjoy them too much.
One of my favorite things...memories of Christmas when my boys were little.
A few plans for the rest of the week:tomorrow I'm at my usual painting group, and Thursday I'm spending with my friend in Niagara Falls. Friday the usual visits with my seniors, and then Saturday I'll drop.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing
I've taken a couple really close-up photo's of this rose, because I'd like to paint it on my new shelf, but that's tomorrow's adventure.
