Daybook 17

For Today...

Outside my Window...a dry version of last week's post, night skies
I am thinking...how we should celebrate Marguerite's second birthday
I am thankful for... God's protection and safekeeping, my sister being able to join us for church last Sunday (she had to go home halfway through the service, but this is certainly a milestone for us)
From the kitchen...chicken, pasta, mess from a smoothie experiment
I am creating...one mystery story, one inspirational story, a crocheted blanket for Marguerite (almost the same as last week's + a food essay)
I am wearing...shirt and shorts
I am reading...a back issue of The Old Schoolhouse and a zillion blogs :)
I am hoping
...to hear from one of my publishers regarding a story

I am hearing
...Marguerite playing, some traffic

Around the house
...Marguerite's things all over the place
One of my favorite things...a crossword puzzle with morning tea
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week
...bake, craft, write, meet deadlines, organize finances, lots of Marguerite Moments

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you

This was taken by Husband at the beach we frequented when we were still living in Subic Bay. He was just getting started in his photography hobby and this is a picture I've always liked. Somewhere along this stretch of sand lies my husband's wedding ring as well, harrumph. :( I'm not sorry about choosing to move away although I do miss being this close to the sea.

It's a glorious, peaceful picture. I'm so sorry about the wedding ring. My husband lost his when we were first married but found it a year later. Your daughter is beautiful.

Reminds me of a new beginning.....

Now what were you two doing on the beach so that the hubby lost the ring? =P

spinninglovelydays said...

Thanks everyone for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments. :)

@Frances: It was actually my bro-in-law who lost it. Mark asked him to hold on to it while he went for a swim. Most of the time they were looking for it, I was trying to catch baby fish with a plastic cup (they hadn't wanted to tell me). *sigh* C'est la vie. :)
