Outside my window, the day has been clear, bright, and sunny. I've wandered about in short sleeves and bare feet. Can this really be winter?
I have been listening to Boundless webzine's weekly podcasts, which provide nice meaty food for thought (what are your favourite podcasts? I'm always up for a good recommendation!).
I am wearing a white cardigan, now it's cooling a little, an orange top and a grey skirt.
I am thankful for the overflowing love and kind affection of several friends who helped make my first week without housemates a fun one with parcels full of happy surprises arriving on my doorstep yesterday morning and today. I'm so spoilt in my friends!
I am pondering the difference between knowing God and knowing about Him. Unfortunately I am more knowledgeable in the latter than in the former.
I am reading about a million things, but most recently I've been dipping into Josh Harris's Dug Down Deep. I'm two chapters in and it's excellent.
I am thinking about taking my film camera out for a day of picture-taking.
I am creating very little of late, but I want to get back into full story immersion.
Beauty in the home is in the leftover wedding flowers still hovering around and full of life.
I am hoping and praying for Sono Harris and my Aunty Chris, both of whom are bearing a heavy burden just now.
One of my favorite things is fresh orange juice. It's so normal but it's such a treat.
My plans for the rest of the week involve baking cookies and cream cupcakes, hanging out with excellent friends, doing washing, and hopefully writing some letters.
A picture thought I’m sharing is of the happy 'paper packages tied up with string' courtesy of the excellent and loving Caitlin, Tegan, and Abbie. I love you girls!

Rachael -- I hope you get some holidays this year at least! And, no, the replies aren't too much work. I love it :).
Tegan -- I prayed! But you already know that, and you already passed with flying colours. Yay, you! Much, much love. xx
Katie -- Hooray! Embrace those holidays with open arms! And I boldly decree you make a blog post about the excellent things you intend to do in your break.
Samantha -- holidays are the best :)
EWeight -- make sure you let me see pictures when you do make your reckless attack on your hair. Bravo to us, I say!
MotherCarey -- only because you helped me to do so! xx
