Well, I’ve been seeing these Catholic Women’s Almanac Posts from my friends at http://fillingmyprayercloset.com/ and http://www.suscipio4women.com/ so I’m going to try and hope I’m doing this right!

Thanking God for…

  • My wonderful husband, parents and extended family.
  • My friends.
  • The children he had brought into my life, though not my own.
  • The beauty around me.

Looking out my window… What window!  😉  Actually, it’s rainy and dreary, but I know that the beautiful fall foliage is coming and I’m excited to see what happens.

I am praying…

  • For the young people in our youth group.
  • The Holy Souls in Purgatory.
  • For Gods will do be done in my life, my parish, and the world.
  • For all those who ask for prayer, and those known only to Got to be in need of it.

I am pondering… If I am doing what God wants of me.  I am starting to feel pulled in other directions again.  In the past, these sort of things have made me take leaps that have been good – it’s just always difficult to let go.

I am reading…

  • Story of a Soul
  • Choosing to be Catholic:  For the First Time or Once Again
  • I’ve picked up The Interior Castle and hope to start it soon.

I am creating…

  • Not really creating, but working on a personalization of a gift for my newest Godchild.
  • Learning more about gardening
  • Hoping to wrap up some unfinished projects

I’m learning… Ancora Imparo, whether on purpose or by life.

In the kitchen… I don’t cook (if I can help it).  My husband is a wonderful cook.  So now I’m pondering dinner tonight!

Around the house… Laundry, and clean up as I can.  Hard to do much with a full time job and an inside dog that likes to get STINKY when she can.  😉

I’m wearing… Jeans, Magenta knit top.  Nothing fancy, but works for work.

I am looking forward to… My newest Goddaughter’s baptism this weekend.  Plus, time with friends and family as the holy days and holidays approach.

A favorite quote for today… The only disability in life is a bad attitude.

One of my favorite things… Walks with my hubby.  Fall colors.

The week ahead… Parish Council, Religious Ed classes, Baptism, rest (hopefully!)

Captured…  Zipper Spider:  I’ve been watching progress of some of my plantings around the house, and this lovely spider has been around for a week or two.  I’m always amazed at how hard they work – and even if something happens to their web, they put it back.  Granted, I’d be freaked out if it was on me…  but I’m oddly fascinated by them.
