For Today… 24th February 2016.
Outside my window… it is a chilly -1 and each star is like a little chip of ice in the sky.
I am thinking… about who fascinating it is to cross paths with new people.
I am thankful… for my musical gift.
I am praying for… my old friend Jason who is in a high dependency unit tonight after a significant and serious surgery today.
I am creating… a plan for a screenplay. Can’t publish it yet but watch out, it’ll be coming soon!
I am going… to be leading our Lenten Bible study tomorrow night with my friend Helen.
I am wondering… whether this scratchy throat will develop overnight or will disappear.
I am reading… a really crappy novel that is nice night-time reading but not worth commenting on really in amongst the reams and reams of notes and critical essays I am reading for my studies…
I am hoping… I can make a good headway on my children’s literature assignment tomorrow. The official deadline is tomorrow lunchtime but I have an extension until Tuesday because I have been a bit poorly.
I am learning… to say “no” and to take some rest when my body tells me I have to.
In my garden… I have recently put out a new bird feeder filled with nuts and seeds but there hasn’t been many visitors yet. I might have to add a bit of something extra to tempt the birds in.
In my kitchen… Emma and Gemma made a delish meal tonight of pasta and a “sauce” which was stuffed FULL of vegetables. Very, very nice.
A favourite quote for today… this is from our Lent challenge at church, and it is a video I created for the verse “The Lord is my salvation”.
A peek into one of my days…
This is my friend Dot and it was taken on Saturday at our Deanery Away Day which was held at FC United. It was a great day and we had a good old natter about stuff.
One of my favourite things… is watching people blossom when they are given encouragement and praise.
Post Script: I posted yesterday about the question of whether Britain should remain in or leave the EU, and it has sparked a bit of a debate it seems. Have a look and see, and please leave me your thoughts if you have an opinion or an observation about it. I’m keen to find out if other people are as confused about it all just the same as I am.
