Happy Monday!

What I’m thinking: How much I love Mondays! No, you didn’t read that wrong. I just love the opportunity to start another fresh week, with no mistakes. Yet.  
What I’m reading: I'm reading "Origin of Species" by Darwin. I will find this read particulary helpful and interesting, even if I don't agree. I will also be analyzing the "Romans 13" veiw of government for my Great Books class.
What I’m listening to: Handel’s Messiah. I love that piece of music; my heart just soars when I hear the sopranos. *sigh*
What I’m  learning: To ask for forgiveness, even when I don’t see how I’m wrong. I know, in time, I will.
What I’m watching: We watched “Shop Around the Corner” last night. That film is well-crafted, and has consequently become a Christmas tradition. On Rotten Tomatoes, it is rated 100% by critics, and 89% by audience.
What’s cooking: I’m thinking about baking up a batch of Banana Berry muffins. We have a lot of very ripe bananas, at the moment. (I will post that recipe in the next weeks!)
What I’m thankful for: Cozy socks. They are blessings on cold mornings, when you don’t want to get out of bed.
What I’m creating: I am organizing underneath my bathroom sink this week. It needs a winter cleaning. Badly.
What I’m praying: That the Lord would give my friends and I wisdom for the future. Growing up can be wonderful, yet scary and confusing, and right now I’m feelin’ the latter.
What I’m planning: Well, I am looking forward to this week. We are attending the Messiah, plus celebrating Christmas as a family this Saturday. Family time is always appreciated.
What I did this last weekend: Had a very productive Saturday (housecleaning, running, a long phonecall), plus a slow and relaxing Saturday.
What I’m looking forward to: Christmas break.
A picture to share: Found this series of photos formulated with food, with each picture representing a recipe. (I believe these were originally used in relation to IKEA, but can’t be sure.)

  1. I can totally relate to Monday's being a fresh start. That is how I start my week too.

    Shop Around the Corner is such a good movie!

    And I will be praying for you as you make decisions about your future.

    Those photos are fun and have fun at the Messiah!

    I love this glimpse into your week!
