Outside my window~
Showing her the International Space Station fly by on a clear, winter night.
What I am thankful for ~
* A fun, family memory at Great Wolf Lodge
* My husband who built these open-end wall shelves for me
(Thank you, Houzz.com for the idea!)
So you all will faint when I say this, but these babies are the first set of wall shelves I have ever had in a house since we have been married.
I am so thrilled to have them! Now to figure out what to put on them...
I'm open to suggestions.
What I've been reading ~
From the school room ~
Religion :: Living Liturgy
We celebrated the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas on January 28.
St. Thomas is always depicted with a sunburst on his chest. It's a symbol of his teachings which illuminated divine truth and "bear forth great light for the whole church."
So Miss Mabel cut out star-shaped lunch meat and cheese for our sandwiches that day! ha ha!
I am praying for ~
* an end to abortion
* our priests
* our soon-to-be, newly installed bishop
Around the house ~
On Monday afternoon, we actually got some "spring" cleaning done! Our Texas winters are more like late spring up in the Midwest.
From the kitchen ~
Miss Mabel baked home-made bagels Saturday night. We had them for breakfast after Mass on Sunday.
They were SO delicious!
I am listening to ~
* the hum of the dishwasher. Otherwise, it is rather quiet here as I type.
