Daybook

Outside my window…it’s beautiful and sunny!

I am reflecting on…Josef Pieper’s words, “the rational ‘useful’ world which preoccupies us is but a partial environment for our humanity; we need to be able to transcend the purely pragmatic, the visible and verifiable, and embrace the whole as marvel, as gift.” 

I am praying for…Jenny Johnson as she prepares to enter the Catholic Church. 

From the learning rooms…Holy Week.  We’re reading and re-reading books like The Easter Swallows by Vicki Howe and The Story of the Cross by Mary Joslin, The Best Thing About Easter by Christine Harder Tangvald and The Easter Cave by Carol Wedeven and we’re imagining what it was like to be there. 

From the kitchen…it’s pizza night.

I am wearing…jeans and a brown t-shirt. 

I am creating…some homemade band instruments for my nephew, Alex, hoping to get back into Leslie and Dustin’s good graces (I sent some pots and pans for Alex a few months ago and I can hardly hear Les on the phone these days…Alex has discovered pots and pans make the most joyful music!)

I am going…to plant the strawberry plants and hang our new hummingbird feeder.

I am readingMedjugorje: The Message by Wayne Weible and am in awe of Our Lady.

I am remembering…Grandma Nury’s wingspan…


I am hearing…the neighbor’s lawnmower and Joseph practicing a new song he learned on the keyboard.

Around the house…I’ve been doing spring cleaning in bits and pieces.  I just washed the blinds (or rather Basic H washed the blinds, I just rinsed them).  

One of my favorite things…beautiful spring weather and opening the windows.

A few plans for the rest of the weekThe Way of the Cross for children on Friday; dye eggs and bake lamb cake on Saturday. 

Here is picture I thought worth sharing

  1. Wow, fantastic. Let me know how the humming bird feeder goes. I will try it next year and hopefully see them in your backyard this year.
    Love you, Mom
