Can you believe we are already halfway through September? It truly blows my mind. Soon the leaves will be changing colors, if not already. The weather will cool down and summer clothes will be replaced with warmer outfits. I like this time of year. And the Mutts cartoon above is so precious I had to share it.
I had such a sweet response to my last daybook approach to Monday’s Musings that I thought I’d write another. So, here we go:
Today is Sept. 13, 2015 (I’m writing this Sunday evening.)
Outside my window is darkness. I can see the moon and there is some wind to cool off the evening.
Spiritually speaking, I am working through the book of Acts for my bible study. For a devotional, I am reading through J.C. Ryle’s Daily Readings from all four gospels this month.
For dinner, I made spaghetti and we took it over to my in-laws to eat with them. It’s what we do Sunday evenings—spend the evening with them. It truly is a fun and memorable time.
Healthwise, I am planning to walk two miles in the morning using one of my Walk At Home DVDs.
I am thinking that I need to be on my knees even more for my children since they are now all finding their way in this big ol’ world. It is weird to be here in this moment but I know some of you have already walked this path. Any encouragement would be so welcomed.
In my garden, we had to pull out all the kale and brussel sprouts plants because of Harlequin Cabbage Bug issues. (Look above) Aren’t they pretty? Don’t be fooled. They multiply pretty fast and can take over—like they did in my garden. Now I’m grossed out when I see them. I even had to ask my husband to pull out the brussel sprouts because there was too many for me to handle.
I’m looking forward to the state fair which started this weekend and the beautiful colors of autumn.
My reading material includes my newest food magazines and Self Raised from Lamplighter books. I found an original copy of this book at an antique store for $3 and can’t wait to read it. Also, I finished up The Broken Hyacinth (affiliate link) and loved it.
One project I hope to start on is our front room—our Disneyland room. It needs a little tlc. I finished up my agenda in my pantry as I posted in my last daybook entry. I also want to get in some photography.
I am thankful for each of my children and for their gifts. Oh, and that the Lord has given my daughter 18 years of life. To Him be the glory!
