May 182009


Outside my window

… there is a glorious bue sky backdrop to our cherry blossom tree which has almost shed all it leaves …. the final stretch of autumn before winter sets in.

I am thinking

… about yesterday’s prayer meeting and pondering on the teaching. It was a beautiful word from the Lord on the Sacrament of Penance.

I am thankful for

… Our Blessed Mother’s intercession to help me update 12 months worth of bookkeeping…… don’t ask but I guess it’s called procrastination. I did it all in one week so I know it had to be divine intervention that helped me through it. It’s amazing how we are helped and encouraged when we plead for mercy and help.

From the learning rooms

… Patience. We are tested continually but this test has been ongoing for three years.

From the kitchen

… nothing – not even coffee perculating.

I am wearing

… navy track pants and pink top.

I am creating

… some new blog posts.

I am praying for

Conscience and Protecting Life. It was Respect Life Sunday yesterday but the prayers can continue daily. I’m also praying for our Holy Father.

I am reading

… a little booklet – CONFESSION It’s Fruitful Practice

I am hoping

… the shelving will get installed in our garage this weekend and not get put off yet again.

I am hearing

… my nephew & niece squealing and making a general racket outside … I’m just waiting for my sister or brother-in-law to come pick them up.

Around the house

… the kitchen is a disaster area & needs a good tidy & clean.

One of my favourite things...

… photographing roses.

A few plans for the rest of the week:

 Shopping for an anniversary gift for a friend; Heading off to Ballarat for the day tomorrow; a doctors appointment Wed morning; organise the next lot of paerwork ready to enter.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing
