For Today... July 20, 2009
Outside my window..More beautiful, sunny, pleasant weather for us this week - with scattered showers thrown in. We do need the rain.
I am thinking... about trying some new recipes with summer veggies.
I am thankful for...the time this summer that I can "hang out" with our daughter Amanda. I love her sense of humor and her soft heart. She is a great help to me here at home and a blessing.
From the kitchen... I am planning a menu for the week. There's a possibility that my sister and mom will come up for a visit this week! Grocery shopping later today...
I am wearing... pj's:)
I am hoping... that the teaching materials that I gave to a homeschooling friend will be a benefit to her daughter this summer.
I am hearing...it is very quiet, except for morning traffic outside. Right now I am not even hearing the birds chirping. They must be busy finding breakfast...
I am praying...a safe trip for Mom and Missy if they make the trip up, that our son Jonathan is not lonely this summer and finds some fun things to do along with his full time job- so thankful for that job! He is living in his college town apartment and working away from home this summer--growing up...and so it goes:)
Around the house... didn't get to the deck railing project-- and the intermittent rain forecasted throughout the week might hinder it for this week. Getting the house ready for company early this week and a co-ed wedding shower for Brooke and Tim next Sunday afternoon- the guys are invited too:)--should be fun. I am looking forward to seeing one particular "little guy"- Sam:)
One of my favorite things...fireflies, lightning bugs - whatever you call them in your area-- they make us all feel like kids again:) The memories of chasing them on the summer evenings of our youths... the "magic" of that blinking little bug...what a Creator we have!
A few plans for the rest of the week...spending time with Mom and Missy (if they come) and enjoying this pleasant weather. And getting ready for the shower:)
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...*
Our little bathing beauty ready for the pool:)
We will get to be with her for the first time next month!
Have a wonderful week:)
