a day in the life

24 September, 2018

The wind is howling outside my windows.

I can hear things blowing around out there but it's still dark...

not quite dawn. We live in the middle of a 3 pronged fork in the road

on a rather tiny island which is connected to the mainland

by a 2 mile causeway and we have the Atlantic on

either side of us. So...things can get pretty windy here.

I am wearing a pair of Levi jeans and a white peasant blouse

from J.Jill. I have a scarf with autumn coloured flowers on as well.

I haven't really been putting chores off...

I just can't seem to catch up. I cleaned the bedroom

and went through the autumn clothing and it all looked great.

Somehow, I ended up with lots of blankets on the floor though.

All folded and piled up and waiting for the first

cold night to be tossed onto the beds.

Storage is tight here but I will have to find a place for them. 

I had some leftover chili in the fridge. I tossed it yesterday.

I think it's time for me to stop making chili

as we don't really like it. 

I haven't been reading much of anything except

my daily bible reading. 

Fill us at daybreak with your kindness.

Is here a prayer request you'd like to share?

Please pray for my husband who is recovering from

his second thyroid surgery in 2 months.

What special dish or baked item are you planning for this week?

I am going to be making puy lentils with bacon this week.

I haven't made in since last year...I hope it tastes as good as it did then. 

A photo you'd like to share?

I picked up a basket at a local church bizarre

and hung it on the back door with some gourds inside.

Any parting thoughts?

Let's all try to bear fruit this week

and to bear one another's burdens where we are able. 


  1. Thank you for joining with me today! I will continue to keep your husband in prayer as he recuperates. Cute fall basket! I have a small apartment and can't seem to keep things as clean as I'd like. I have a shedding cat - 'nough said.

  2. I enjoyed this post and your poetical writing! A verse that has been on my heart is Psalm 16:11, "You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore." I love the beauty God gives us in life and how you shared it here. ♥

  3. I think we like chili in theory more than we actually like eating it. I end up freezing most of the batch every time and bringing it out a quart at a time either for a quick lunch for a few people or to give away to someone.
