Outside: I think I covered that in the above picture. My drive to work this morning was uneventful except for the people stuck behind me. I refuse to go flying down a road with snow blowing over it to cover all the ice. Nope - they can either have a heart attack or wind up in the ditch but not me. :)
Reading: Love and Respect - and I will explain why a little father down but I still love that book and wish I would have had it a LONG, LONG time ago! Also, re-reading Lori Wick's book "Every Storm" and her book "Pretense". Please don't ask me how many times I have read them - they are just my favorites and I haven't had a chance to make it to the library yet!
Work: Still thankful for my job although some days that may be harder than others. Don't get me wrong - I like my job and the people I work with but both of those make me bang my head against the wall every once in a while. Then I stop and thank the Lord I have a job, that it meets our needs and pray FOR those people and my attitude gets back in line. :)
Family: My house is quiet again. Both a positive and a negative! :) Everyone in our family except maybe Andrew and Dave and David has been sick in one form or another. This "cold" and "flu" bug just knocks a person down and getting back up is a challenge! But, I think we are all about on the mend except for Christa who is really just getting it. It is just another reason I will be glad for spring! :)
Dave: I am blessed - he took the car and filled it up with gas, shoveled the drive AGAIN this morning and sent me on my way. I am glad he is usually home this time of year because shoveling is probably my VERY least favorite chore! :)
House: Thankfully is clean! Back to the Love and Respect book - A couple weeks ago our pastor and wife decided to do th3 6 week small group study with this book. They had such a great response that they needed 2 sessions on Tuesday nights. Then, a third one for Wednesday night which we offered to do at our house. Hence the reason for reading the book again AND why the house is clean. :) I can't say my house is all that big and my little living room gets pretty full but our first meeting was fun!
Eating: Homemade vegetable soup. The cold and snow just screams SOUP to me! Next on the list will probably be chili! :)
Praying: Hmmmmm....not sure where to start here. There are several things I am praying for but for some reason, most of them are centered on me. Don't get me wrong, I pray for a LOT of people and a LOT of different things but right now, it is "me Oh Lord standing in the need of prayer". I just want my life to be in complete harmony with my Savior and the one way to do that is to be in communication with Him. Sometimes I have a tendency to get too wrapped up in the problems and situations around me that I lose track of ME. That may not make much sense to some but it does me. :)
