Outside my window

… Zac is looking intently to see if there’s a treat on the way. It’s not something he gets every day but most days he is given a doggie biscuit….. of course, Zac is a little pooch – a cross between a pug & shii-tzu.

I am thinking

… of the work that needs doing before the weekend arrives.

I am thankful for

… my cousin who will give me a helping hand with the garage … the never ending saga to this much needed, overdue make over.

From the learning rooms

… if you skip your time with the Lord for one day – He notices; if you skip your time with the Lord the next day – You notice it; if you skip your time with the Lord the third time – Everyone notices. Precious moments in prayer or quiet time with Jesus can’t be left out of our day – it’s our source of strength & grace to do or handle anything that life throws our way.

From the kitchen

… left over meatballs are just as delicious in a toasted sandwich as on a plate of pasta.

I am wearing

… navy track pants and a red, long sleeve t-shirt; black socks and thongs …. what a sight, lol….

I am creating

… a new posting idea for one of my other blogs.

I am praying for

… the pro-life youth movement in Victoria. They’re young and keen and want to see an abortion free State.

I am going

… to take my son shopping shortly – a few birthday presents to buy.

I am reading

… the latest edition of Country Home Ideas magazine…. so many gorgeous decor ideas.

I am hoping

… to return to my creative work very, very soon. It’s been way too long since I was able to paint creatively.

I am hearing

… nothing but the low hum of my computer. It’s amazing really – not usually that quiet around here.

Around the house

… the ironing pile is down to almost nil …. WaaHooo ……..sigh, but another load of washing to put out, lol.

One of my favourite things...

… enjoying a good cup of excellent coffee and cake with a friend.

A few plans for the rest of the week:

…. I need to paint a section of the brick, interior garage wall in preparation for the work to be done this coming weekend; Joining my newly found walking group for the weekly walk; attending Holy Hour at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  

Here is a picture thought I am sharing

 Saying Grace – BBQ night at the Apollo Bay homeschoolers (& ex-homeschoolers) camp. Not everyone is in this photo but I just had to take the opportunity for this photo.

  1. Thanks for dropping by my blog.

    Great daybook entry. Isn’t it a great feeling getting the ironing pile under control. I have work to do on mine. As soon as it gets emptied it is soon filled up again. Never ending.

    Have a blessed week.

  2. It’s one of those jobs that insists on growing and never seems to go away, lol. But it is a fabulous feeling when the ‘monster’ is under control 🙂

  3. Elena,

    Thanks for the visit to Fragrance of Truth!

    I had a huge number of visitors today, but couldn’t figure out why. Then I saw it at your post and wondered if you had ‘stumbled’ my post.

    I curious~! What is ‘stumble me’?
