Looking towards another week...

I saw this on Meredith's blog Life at 7000ft I thought I would jump in and do it too...

Outside my window... the Sun is shining, the skies are blue & it’s in the 20’s outside (which is a bit warmer than it has been in the past couple days.
I am thinking... about the love I have for children’s naptime (at the SAME time)

I am thankful for... for the sleeping children (said above), the ability to knit again (after over 2 weeks off), the wonders of a crock-pot (for which dinner is cooking in)

I am wearing... plaid pajama pants (even though it’s after 2 here) and a Chicago Cubs t-shirt.

I am remembering... my grandfather and how I wish I could have had a little bit more memories with him, maybe going to a Chicago Cubs game or on road trips.

I am going... to stay inside today (we were suppose to a family over for dinner but they got sick), I will be spending time knitting a blankie for Joseph, finishing up laundry, loving on my kids…

I am currently reading… hmm…seeing that it for a Blogging for Books I’m not sure if I can say. So stay tuned (I’m hoping by next week at this time it will be done…) So far I really like it!

I am hoping... for the ability to help figure out what Rick’s next block of rotations and interviews for residencies and such within the next little bit of time.

On my mind... the children at the Cornerstone Orphanage in Nigeria

Noticing that... I need to order pictures of the last couple months and fill out “baby” books for both of the kids

Pondering these words... well…I’m actually pondering Beautiful Things by Gungor (I heard it 2 weeks ago at church and we sung it again yesterday.) I’m pondering if I’m actually living this song and know it 100%, clinging to the words that “you make beautiful things out of the dust, you make beautiful things out of us” I have to keep telling myself “you make me new, you are making me new” Check this out YouTube

In the kitchen... I have meat & black bean chili in the crock pot…soon I will make some corn bread for tonight as well.

Around the house... well, I have 2 children 2 and under…SO I have 2 year old boy toys all around (cars, trains and balls), I have a bouncer & activity play mat for Aspen out, a clean pile of laundry waiting to be folded, so I better hurry up and finish this!

One of my favorite things... practical favorite things is my crock-pot, favorite things in general my knitting needles & great yarn or fiber, favorite people my family!

From my picture journal... My 3 favorite people…LOVE them to pieces!
