::blog notes: March 23:2012

Outside my window:

The sun is shining, and it is warm.
The past few days have been the nicest that we have had so far...it feels more like June then March!

I am thinking:

That I really should try and get a long walk in today...

In the kitchen:

Starting some bread, to go with Stuffed Peppers for dinner. Some cinnamon buns would be nice too...

I am working on:

Finishing up painting the book shelf I have been working on...my dad made it way back when he was a boy, and with a new coat of paint {a lovely green} it will be just perfect in my room...

I am going:

To head out to the garden and continue yesterday's work of clearing it out and getting ready for our neighbor to plow it.

I am reading:

Trusting God, by Jerry Bridges
This wonderful prayer by Scotty Smith, here.
And this good article about reading aloud, here.
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7
I am looking forward to:

Seeing Abbie's sweet sis Sophie, who is coming to visit James and Abbie{all the way from Norway} for a few weeks. It will be so nice to see her again!

I am hearing:

The David Nevue station playing on Pandora.

A few plans for the rest of the week {end}:

Not too much happening, just the usual~ Saturday cleaning, and church on Sunday.
I am hoping to fit in a bit of sewing time {Abbie gave me some wonderful wool cloth for my birthday, and I am planning on making something nice out of it!}

Some pictures from our past few days...



  1. Daybooks a re such fun to read. I love the David Nevue station too!

  2. Rosie,
    Love you doing the Daybook. It's fun reading what others are thinking and doing.

    Do you all still home Church?

    Blessings to you,

  3. That is my favorite color...like a sage green?! :)

    Thanks for giving us a peek at your day!

  4. These are some of my favorite posts!

    Question--how do you attach your Waldorf stars to windows~double-sided tape? Thanks so much!

  5. Ah, I loved Trusting God by Jerry Bridges, as well as everything else I've ever read by him. I really like his writing. He came and spoke near our town once and I was very impressed by his very humble, quiet nature and deep love for God that was very evident when he spoke.

    Wow, Nicholai is looking more grown up even since I saw him last. I love that shot with him and the dog - makes me miss him (Nicholai, not the dog ;)

  6. That is a lovely shade of green - I am looking for a green to paint our hall bathroom! Time to change out the red!

    Love to all...

  7. Hi Emily, it is so nice and relaxing, isn't it?

    Hello Cathy,
    No, we are not home churching right :)

    "they call me mommy", hmmm, it is a bit darker than sage, but kinda close...

    I think my mom used a kind of spray adhesive, that you can get from the craft store~but we have used tape in the past :)

    Hi Carl!
    I am about half-way through the book,and it is so good! How wonderful that you were able to hear him speak :)
    Yes, Nicholai is getting really big~he is taller than Julia now! (well, I guess that would not be too hard to be!!)

    Thanks, Cassandra!

  8. Thank you, Rosie! :)
