Pamela's Daybook: April 28

Today: Today is a catch-up day. Do you ever schedule one? Organizing, filing, throwing away, catching up on e-mails and instant messages. Tonight is the grandkids' music recital. All three will be playing the piano, and this year, Landon will also play his trumpet. Melanie had music born in her. When Shawn built their house, he included a beautiful music room. Melanie mentioned that the kids spend a third of their summer in the there. They all love music.

At my writing desk: Only curriculum today.

In the mail: I had 3 delightful letters waiting when we came home from IHC, but we had them continue to hold the mail since we were leaving again on Monday.

Praying for: A young Christian couple sentenced to five years in jail for child abuse that did not happen. The judge said he couldn't prove it happened, but the couple couldn't prove it didn't. Since the judge didn't know who did it, he sentenced them both.

Thankful for: Three days with family celebrating my daddy's 81st birthday. Oh my, the fun we had! My sister took Tuesday off work, so that was extra-fun. We got to grab a Starbucks and sit and chat for a bit.

Creating: RB stopped at my favorite JoAnn's on the way home yesterday. It's huge and carries things I don't see at mine. I only had 15 minutes, but I packed a lot in them. Did you know JoAnn's accepts Hobby Lobby coupons? A sweet lady told me in the check-out line and then gave me one.

I'm reading: I finished "The Painter's Daughter" by Julie Klassen. It was a good read and kept my mind busy on on the way home. Read Daphne's Diary magazine. It's expensive, but I got it half off. This is one of the magazines Mom and I used to share.

Postmarking: I had a marathon card writing session when I got back from IHC last Friday. I got all my cards from the list out and a couple more.

Favorite quote: "Correspondence has always been as necessary to my happiness as a well-cooked dinner, and I've found it more sustaining for its generosity: an act of charity that returned to me a hundredfold.” Delia Sherman 


  1. So nice to discover your blog Pamela! I really enjoyed the list of things you're doing! I'm so sorry about your friends who were sent to jail! What a fun shopping trip, too! I have never been to Hobby Lobby but I've heard it's great.

  2. Everyone needs to schedule a catch up day. They are necessary

    Thanks for remind us and letting us know what you are catching up on


  3. I should schedule catch up days! I usually just write the come back finish edit ten post.

  4. I really enjoyed the Painter's Daughter as well... it was surprising for me as many from that genre do not tend to really grab my attention.


    Reading List

  5. What a lovely way of sharing the overview of your day. Not read the book you mention - I'm always looking for new reads!

  6. I feel like most days a catch up days :) I like the idea of scheduling them though. I think I would probably get more done that way.

  7. I really need to schedule a catch up day - it's a great idea! Every day I seem to have a to do list a mile long - I'm ambitious because I know there's no way I could get it all done!
