Some thoughts, lessons, and/or reflections from the day:

  • I think I’m trying really hard not to get sick.  I was awake before the alarm went off but wasn’t too eager to get up and get moving.
  • After a couple rounds on the snooze button I decided the work wasn’t going to do itself, so I got myself around to start the day.
  • It was a very hazy morning and the vibrant detail of yesterday’s full moon had been replaced by the soft glow of muted moonlight.
  • As I went about the morning cleaning and building prep, my prayer time was focused on the sermon for Sunday, which is planned to be about our heart’s desire.
  • The wind has been fierce and the temperature has been dropping all day, but I had a pair of cardinals stop by for about fifteen minutes mid-morning.  They plucked a few of the remaining berries but didn’t seem interested in staying around any longer than they had to.
  • Sometimes uncomfortable conditions can help us refine, and define, what is really important and even make us more efficient at doing what needs to be done.
  • Even with not wanting to get up, the day began early so by early afternoon it was time to shift from workday tasks to some daddy/daughter time.
  • While Susan likes to eat just about anywhere that she can get pop, Long John Silver’s is one of her favorite places when it is just the two of us so that’s where we headed.
  • We don’t really go there that often, but the workers always recognize her and are happy to see her smiling face.  Perhaps each of us would do well to consider what kind of impression we give people who we interact with whether occasionally or regularly. 
  • After lunch we drove down to Potato Creek to look of photo opportunities.  The wind was cold and cut through the layers of clothing I had on, so I didn’t spend much time outside and Susan stayed in the warmth of the truck.
  • Today’s photo is of a pair of ducks we saw out swimming in the little bit of open water that is still present on the lake.  Susan didn’t want to swim, she said the water would be very cold, but the ducks didn’t seem to mind.

    • One of their protection techniques is to disappear and swim underwater, so I don’t know if it gets frozen that way or it’s just the style. 🙂
