Outside my window... I hear my kids running outside.
I am thinking... About a friend that just suffered a terrible loss. I'm keeping her in my prayers.
I am thankful... My baby is sleeping in his bed beside mine; and I feel so blessed to have a healthy newborn baby boy. Life is beautiful!
In the kitchen... A delightful smell fills the air. My daughter just made spaghetti sauce from scratch and my other daughter is cooking some pasta. Earlier, my son made some pizzas for everyone. I can't complain.
I am wearing... Some comfy sweats and a t-shirt. Anything that makes it easier to nurse my baby boy is my ideal wardrobe.
I am creating... Nothing at the moment, just taking time to rest and bonding with my newborn.
I am going... To stay put. I visited my mom out of town yesterday and have been quite busy the past few days. I desperately need some rest.
I am wondering... What the menu for Shabbat should be. We need to do our shopping by tomorrow.
I am reading... A couple of books. One that I started a while back is titled G-d in Search of Man by Joshua Heschel
I am hoping... To get work done. I have much house work awaiting me.
I am looking forward to... My brother-in-law and his family are visiting next week; can't wait to see them.
I am learning... How important it is to continue studying Torah and specially living by it.
Around the house... It seems much quieter since three o my sons went out, and the little ones are in the family room.
I am pondering... How to simplify my life and get rid of many things that just clutter.
A favorite quote for today... One who does not increase [his knowledge] decreases it. -Pirkei Avot 1:13
One of my favorite things... Is holding my baby in my arms. Then again, everyone around here wants to hold him, which means I mostly get to hold him at night.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Set up dentist appointments for my kids. Clean up my family room and library.
A peek into my day... I haven't taken many pictures lately but this picture about sums it up.
