This is an idea I stole from Danielle's Day Book. Often I don’t know what to write but as I think about my day I realize there may be some interesting items. Well at least to me.
The weather in my neck of the woods:
Today..Cloudy with 60 percent chance of showers. High 7C/42F
Tonight..Cloudy with 60 percent chance of snow flurries or rain showers.
Wind becoming southeast 20 km/hr. this evening. Low -3C/26F.
I am thankful:
To have lots of wood in store so I can be as warm as I want to be and no reason to go out if I don’t want to. Hubby has stocked the wood shed completely full we probably have enough for the next three years.
From the kitchen:
I had a scrawny old stewing hen which I boiled up yesterday. Today the poor little thing will turn into a sumptuous curry. Have been trying out buckwheat and its effect on my blood sugar. It has no effect so I can incorporate some of that into my diet. Buckwheat is not a cereal it is actually a fruit related to rhubarb and sorrel. It contains ingredients purported to lower bad HDL cholesterol and lower blood glucose too. I have been looking up recipes other than buckwheat pancakes.
I am working on:
Finishing a blouse that I started in May. I lost interest in it but there is just a hem to do now. Also I am working on another bracelet on my loom. I have done a few now hopefully I will sell some at the Christmas bazaar.
I am reading:
Pilgrim by Timothy Findley is a review of the book, it is a bit different but I think it could be quite interesting. I have only just started it. I also got out several other books last night, I read so quickly I have to have at least five at a time. That lasts me about a week. I will read just about anything.
What I am thinking about:
The gospel was never meant to be used as a means of protesting the sins that are committed in the world. That's not what the gospel is about. The gospel is a declaration of God's love and grace toward people and it's the power that defeated sin - not protested it! Grace Roots
Did I exercise:
I walked up and down for 20 minutes and did some stretching. I may do more later.
