What’s up, guys? Right now I just stopped baby-sitting my siblings, and my family’s cat is meowing at my feet. Oh, she’s stopped. That’s good.
Today I am going to share my normal Monday with you. Actually, it wasn’t normal, but that’s beside the point. Let’s begin!
At five something in the morning my mom woke me up. Why? Because I had an Ortho appointment at seven ten. And my dentist is an hour away. So, this is what I look like after I stumble out of bed (my mom had to rewake me three times…) and happened to turn on the light and get my act together for a picture.
After this picture, I silently got dressed. I share a room with my four sisters, so I needed to be silent or I would be blamed for the rest of the year for waking them up at an unearthly hour. I chose a pretty normal outfit for this time of year. This week the weather has been in the sixties or seventies, so short sleeves made sense.
Usually in the morning I spend some time with my Best Friend, but I didn’t really have time. I did that later in the afternoon. When I went downstairs, my mom was kindly making me some eggs and toast.
After eating the toast and grabbing a cup of coffee, we walked out the door. The drive seems to take a long time, but I always enjoy talking to my mom and spending time with her. (Just so you know, she’s pretty amazing!)
At the dentist I got my wires changed, and I chose silver bands. I usually go with blue, (I had it last month) but I was feeling a bit more grown-uppity. That is why I chose silver.
On getting home, we all joined together to worship our King as a family. Monday is my younger sister’s turn to pick out the hymns. I can’t recall what she picked, but I know she did pick something!
And then I started on my schoolwork. This book about germs is amazing. The only problem was I had to cover one picture because it took my imaginative mind too far. Why do they add pictures of that kind of stuff in books?
But, if you are into germs, surgery, or anything with the human body, I recommend this book! It is very informative with lots of foreign language in it. (And who doesn’t like foreign language?)
My favorite subject is either rhetoric or history, but my history class is Law and Government at the moment, so I’m not very sure if I enjoy it. For my Bible, I was to chose a hymn to memorize. I chose “Jerusalem my happy home”. It’s a beautiful hymn full of comfort.
After school came lunch. As my mouth was in a bit of pain, my sweet dad went and got me my favorite food! Grits! And I don’t mean just grits, but grits with tons of butter and salt. The more salt the better, right? And my mom wanted bacon, so we had breakfast for lunch!
While my food digested, I had work to do. It’s the beginning of contest season! (laughs in excitement) I had to edit a story for an upcoming contest. Sadly, I’m 220 words over the obligated word count! Can you believe it? So, some of the story will have to be cut out.
The rest of the day I spent in grumpy silence. I’m not the best person to be with when in pain. I spent time playing hymns on the piano. Nothing is more soothing to my bodily pain, or metal confusion than the sound of the piano singing praise to my Matchless King.
I also spent the time reading God’s Word, and praying. And then, for my own amusement and for my edification, I’m reading “They called him Stonewall” by Burke Davis. It’s so interesting to learn more about one of my heroes. To have the will and the humility of T. J. Jackson would be amazing.
Enjoy my day? Would you like to see what other days of my week are like? Relate to any of my rambling? Comment below!
See y’all later,
