Sitting...at my dining room table. I was out on the porch earlier but it's HOT. Too hot. August. Ugh.
Weary...of the heat. It's too hot!
Anticipating...the start of school next Wednesday. I know, I know, my homeschooling friends may think less of me but I cannot WAIT to send my kids to school Wednesday. I stink at maintaining structure and routine, which is fine for the duration of a normal summer break. However, you may remember we haven't had any degree of routine since the tornado--in April--making for a L O N G summer. We need the structure; we need school! Me and the kids both!
Marking...off my list of summer projects. There are few items I have yet to tackle, like painting the trim downstairs, but for the most part, it was a fairly productive summer. Of course, I think it's Murphy's law of homekeeping that the more you do around the house, the more you see that you need to do!
Discovering...the wealth of options for purchasing upholstery online. Who knew? I spent far too long on this site (among others) looking at upholstery options for a chair (or two) I'd like to have recovered. Y'all know I'm a decorating novice so I don't really know exactly what I'm looking for, plus I'm cheap, making it fun to browse from the comfort of my laptop.
Wanting...a bread machine. I stumbled on this site and now I'm totally inspired. Anyone have one that they love? If you have any recommendations, send them on!
Completed reading...the Harry Potter books. Yes, all 7. Sigh. Good stuff.
Excited...about our church purchasing some property with the vision to one day build a facility of our own! The Lord is so good and this is yet one more evidence of His faithfulness to us! To God be the glory, great things He is doing!
Working...through Wendy Alsup's study on Ephesians, By His Wounds You Are Healed. Good stuff!
Reading...A Praying Life. Also good stuff!
Realizing...once more how the gospel is meant to pervade every part of my life and how my weaknesses--my inadequacies in praying "properly," for instance--serve to show my need and God's grace. It's all grace. From beginning to end.
