Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Day is done...


...gone the sun
From the lakes, from the hills, from the skies
All is well, safely rest;
God is nigh.

I love Taps. I wish someone at my house would learn to play Taps every day at sunset.

"Don't wish your life away," my mother used to say.

We had a good day here. How 'bout you?

We stayed home. All day. We did a little school in the morning. I did a lot of laundry -- five or six loads. I ironed for two or three hours. I made three meals and homemade bread. I read a really good book. That's my idea of a really good day.

It was beyond hot and humid out so we stayed in. The kids watched The Iron Giant while I ironed. They love that move. Yes, it's a little bit of a message movie, but it's tolerable. And it has Harry Connick Jr. even if he is a cartoon character.

We had yummy Chicken and Artichokes (known as Fripp Chicken) for dinner with yummy homemade bread. Then, I left the house and had a teacher's meeting at Panera with my girlfriend (one of the perks of teaching is teacher's meetings dontcha know?). When I came home my little liebchen was in bed and the dishes were washed and put away.

Happy day. Happy, happy day. I hope yours was too.




  1. Yesterday was a good day to stay home all day, except for Emergency Teacher's Meetings. I can't see what you were reading as the link is broken. It wasn't Betsy-Tacy was it??? ;-)

  2. You're such an inspiration Barbara, I don't think I'd ever consider a day which included so much ironing good! ;)

  3. Sara -- I fixed the link, and it was not Betsy-Tacy. I finished Betsy-Tacy long ago and I guess I owe you a book review!

    Ha Deborah -- I'm odd that way. (And I really don't mind ironing except that I have to stand to do it.)

  4. Yes, that DOES sound like a perfect day! Good for you, Barbara, you deserve it.

  5. Sounds like a very good day indeed.
    I'm going to have to figure out some kind of meetings I can have at Panera :)


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
