Daybook

 "The sun...in its full glory, either at rising or setting-this, and many other like blessings we enjoy daily; and for the most of them, because they are so common, most...forget to pay their praises. But let us not."   ~Izaak Walton

For Today... March 20, 2015 
Outside my window...it is dark and 51° 
I am thinking...how I will get everything done I need to tomorrow because I'm so tired and sore from my 19 mile run today.
I am thankful...for second chances. 
I am wearing...my jeans and my RUN BIG running shirt from Kona. 
I am creating...a birthday cake for McKay tomorrow for his 18th birthday.  It's going to be a missionary cake that I traditionally make for each boy on their 19th birthday but he will be going one year early. 
I am going...to Taylor's Alumni game tonight at the high school.  It doesn't start until 11:00 pm! 
I am wondering... how I will stay awake since I've been up since 4:30 am! 
I am reading...Jesus the Christ by James E. Talmadge 
I am hoping...that some things that have been a little tense lately will end well. 
I am learning...that I must always treat difficult people with extra kindness. 
In my kitchen...I am making Twix Bars tomorrow (along with the bday cake!). I owe them to some peeps! 
A favorite quote for today...Appreciate the past, Cherish the present, Accept the future. (I stole that from my friend Dawn's Food 4 Thought Friday). I really needed that this week. Or put another way:
 
A peek into one of my days...tomorrow I have to get up and do a five mile recovery run.  I then need to make McKay's bday cake and Twix bars.  I'm going to attend Taylor's game at 1:30 and again at 5:30 at the Alumni Tourney.  I will see McKay off to junior prom and hope that there is a chance (fat chance!) he will bring his date back here so I can take pictures of them.  I have to prepare my Sunday School lesson and figure out what is for Sunday dinner.  I need to get Dave's mom a birthday present and I need to wrap all of McKay's birthday gifts. And do all the other normal stuff in between (cleaning, laundry, etc). 
A few of my favorite things...I am currently in love with Jelly Belly's, Popcorner Kettle Chips, Brookside's Clusters.

  To play go here.
