I have oodles of work to finish for school, but I am still sitting here in front of the computer, with my feet tucked up beneath me, enjoying this quiet moment to myself for all I am worth.
My head aches, my throat hurts, and my feet are cold, but inside I am so content. Even the most miserable of colds couldn't snatch that away from me right now. God's peace resides in my heart and the whole world seems an open book just waiting to be read.
It feels so...right...to scribble something for myself for once, instead of writing something to be scrutinized by the biased college professor, who believes that under no circumstances should "life" be capitalized, when I know that sometimes it must. Not that I'm complaining mind you, as I really, truly love my college work, but...if you love to write, you'll know exactly what I mean. It's as if I have stumbled across of a piece of myself again after misplacing it for far too long. Just like those stubborn shoes or stray knitting needles I can never seem to find at the moment I need them most. You don't know how good it feels!
My sore throat seems to know that there is a container of delicious, chocolate-peanut butter ice cream in the freezer. I just might have some as I curl up on the couch.
And I believe I'll find an extra pair of socks for these icy toes.

I've done it again. Or rather life has.
I've meant to post. I really, really have, but everything has been topsy-turvy of late and the joy of blogging has been one of the first things to go on the back burner. As sad as it makes me feel (☺) to see just six measly posts for August, that's all that Time has really allowed me. School and a multitude of projects for that have kept me busy; Mama, poor thing, has been in the hospital again suffering from kidney stones and just yesterday had surgery; Elizabeth recently celebrated her eleventh birthday and planning for a party, shopping for gifts, etc., has made life rather hectic. An aunt was so very, very kind to take over the party for us (always family only) and have it at her house when Mama was in so much pain and in the hospital. She made all of the food and cake and was so nice to ensure that Elizabeth would still have a lovely day. Twice before Mama was in the hospital on her birthday...and my aunt wanted to make sure that she wouldn't have sad memories on another day. Such a blessing!
I'd better go for now. I'm going to try to keep posting regularly...I really am. (Notice I said try! ☺) I have lots of posts planned out...movie and book reviews, lovely vintage photos, and more glimpses into my simple, simple life...
So be sure to drop by and visit!
