Looking out my window it’s a beautiful sunny day. The kind with little puffy clouds and warm sunshine that makes you want to sit on the porch and drink sweet tea.
I am thinking about people and how horrible we can be too each other. Wondering how to inspire others to show more empathy. Wondering how to BE more empathetic myself.
I am thankful for the quiet of an empty house.
I am creating life books for K and W along with a template to use in the future. My goal is to have our placements be part of the making of their books.
I am wearing summer clothes. At the end of September. Yep. It’s southern Kentucky.
I am watching When Calls the Heart with Ashe. Trying not to be too indignant about how much the story line’s been changed, not complain about the low-budget costuming, and not rant about the insertion of modern feminism into a time where it’s completely out of place.
I am hoping for a kinder future.
I am learning how to be more patient. (STILL, at age 50!)
In my kitchen not much is happening. Right now there’s a frozen dinner baking for our dinner. I’d barely gotten used to cooking for three when we became a family of seven. As much as I’ve enjoyed the quiet, I’m ready for the circus to come back to town! I’m much better at cooking for a crowd.
And that’s my first daybook entry. I hope it gets easier!
