Thoughts and Moments of my day

A view of snow-capped Lysa Hora

Outside my window...there is already snow on the mountains, but lovely yellow and brown colors still shine in the valley

I am thinking...about how to organize my studying for fall break. We have vacation this week, but next week have four tests and homework on top of that! I need to rest, but also prepare for next week.

I am thankful...for almond milk! I love that I can still have a latte here and there, even if it's not with normal milk, as I'm lactose-intolerant. Almond milk makes a great substitute, and I can make it myself!

From the kitchen...
homemade gluten-free brownies sit on the counter. I made them last night, but didn't have time to fully enjoy them! Hmmm...maybe I want one now! :)

I am wearing...
pajamas! I love slow mornings.

I am reading...Pere Goriot by Honore de Balzac. It's a book that is on our reading list for school. I'm still at the beginning, so have no idea what it'll be like!

I am hoping...that I can get some rest this break! The past two months have been crazy!

I am listen to a Mark Driscoll sermon today. I download podcasts of his sermons, and they are great!! It's so encouraging to learn more about God and dive deeper into His Word through these sermons.

I am creating...
a watercolor picture of lavender fields (in art class at school). This is the first time I've seriously tried out watercolor, and I love using them! There are so many things you can do with them, that I never thought of before!

I am hearing...
the treadmill upstairs. The ticking of the clock in our living room. 

I am praying...for healing in many people's bodies these days!

Around the house...Sun beams through the windows for just a few seconds and then hides behind the clouds again. The day has barely started for most of the family...though Caleb is still sleeping, as usual. :)

One of my favorite things...the changing leaves in the fall! I love the brilliant yellows and the occasional reds and oranges. Even the browns are beautiful with the combination of all those colors! 

A few plans for this week
study, relax (watch movies, draw, listen to an audiobook), go to the mall to get a few things. It feels good to not really have any plans though!

A picture I am sharing...the beautiful Beskydy mountains in the fall.
