Book Of My Day #1

A dear friend has a lovely habit of posting daybooks on her blog. I always enjoy reading them, so I thought I'd steal the idea and start posting some myself.

Outside my window it's windy and warmish. A nice change from yesterday when the sun never came out..

I have been listening to the audio book "North & South" by Elizabeth Gaskell. John Thorton is one of my favourite male characters in all the classics I've read so far. He has great depth of character, I think.

I have been wearing whatever clothes I first see in my cupboard. Not much thought goes in there generally.

I am thankful for being back home with my family after a night away. The time away was enjoyable but home with all of its chaotic ways is pretty good. :)

I am pondering my lack of thankfulness and gratitude and endeavouring to change with God's help.

 I am reading "1000 Gifts" - that explains the aforesaid pondering. I'm loving the openness and the honesty, and being challenged on nearly every page. Has anyone read this brilliant book?

I am creating a quilt for a close friend. I have until the 16th of April to finish, and that time is approaching faster than I would like to think. I'm the queen of grand plans that sometimes don't work out! (More about that in another post.)

 I am hoping and praying for Zach & his family and the grief they're going through!

 I am looking forward to spending time with friends on Saturday.

One of my favourite things is learning new ways to put flowers together. The staff at Poetry In Flowers (where I'm doing work experience) are just lovely and helpful, so I recommend buying flowers there. :)


  1. Thanks for sharing, Caitlin...I always enjoy reading your updates.
    Glad to hear you had a good time away -- it's always nice to come home, isn't it!
    Have a love weekend.

  2. I agree! I always enjoy these sort of posts-thanks for this one!
    I have heard of "1000 Gifts" but haven't read it… sounds good though!
    We have had a nice slow day apart from having to vote…. Mum and Mercy are still away so things are more quiet than usual! :) We're all still waiting for this little one to arrive…..its taking its time!
    Hope you're having a good weekend!
    Love Grace
