For today, Tuesday, June 8, 2010
Outside my window.....The skies are dark and the air is a cool 50 degrees at 10:30pm.
I am thinking....how I've missed picture taking and blogging since my busy family schedule has taken me out of the house and into the car more these days.
I am thankful.....for special times the kids are able to have with their grandparents.
I am wearing.....black shorts, aqua colored t-shirt and a black cardigan sweater.
I am hearing.....nothing but the hum of the computer since all the kids are in bed. Ahhhhh, I love the quiet.
I am creating.....lists of curriculum and school supplies for next fall.
I am going.....to miss our first born as he leaves on a road trip to the East coast with his grandparents this weekend.
I am still reading.....Johnny Tremain to the kids in the morning.
I am praying.....for healing for our brother-in-law's father.
I am remembering.....the laughter of the kids as they watched Tim Hawkins videos on YouTube.
I am hoping.....for some sunshine tomorrow.
On my mind.....sibling relationships and how God wants me to act and react to this family challenge.
Noticing that....The recent rain we've had makes the landscape so wonderfully green!
Pondering these words.....I love the Lord because he hears my prayers and answers them. Because he bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I breathe! Psalm 116:1-2 TLB
From the kitchen.....I tried a Chicken Florentine Style recipe from Giada De Laurentiis of the Food Network Channel yesterday and it was so tasty. . . even the kids liked it!
Around the house....I've been tackling projects which have created piles of clothes for our garage sale we are hoping to have in August.
One of my favorite things.....my morning quiet time of prayer, bible reading and simply "getting inside my own head".
A few plans for the rest of the week.....packing Z-man for his trip, pot luck for our homeschool group, getting the boat put into the water, and a dentist appointment.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you....
The new Corelle plates I ordered. Have I mentioned that I love dishes and tableware?!
