For Today... September 8, 2009
Outside my window.. .Another beautiful day! And the rest of the week's forecast looks great with rain toward the weekend-- but we really need it. The front yards on our street are looking really dry- a little brown.
I am thinking... about the wonderful time that we had in Illinois over the weekend at my sister's wedding. It was so great being with family. It was great seeing my brothers and sisters-in-law. Also, Tim, Jonathan and Amanda were in the wedding. Amanda was the maid of honor, Tim and Jonathan played the guitars and provided the music. It was awesome! And then the reception was a hoot- lots of fun! And a special treat for me- I got to spend alot of time catching up with my dear friend Karen from high school. It was great:)
I am thankful for...my wonderful family and the closeness that we share. Just warms my heart to think of them.
From the kitchen... need to clip coupons, plan menus and grocery shop. I also hope to do some baking this week.
I am wearing... Yep, my pj's:)
I am hoping... to make another trip down to Illinois for another visit with my mom and family there. I need more time with them before winter sets in.
I am hearing... the garbage truck going down the street, -- and other morning traffic as everyone heads back to school and work.
I am praying... for blessings on my sister, Missy and her new husband, Jeff. They are blending a family and that takes special grace and understanding. Also, today would have been Mom and Dad's 60th wedding anniversary. I know that Mom is missing Dad today, and I pray that the Lord wraps his arms around her and gives her comfort.
Around the house... oh- too much to mention- I have my lists:)
One of my favorite things...seeing the Goldenrod growing along the roads and highways in September. On our trip, we also saw what looked like sunflowers along the interstate. So pretty.
A few plans for the rest of the week...not too much going on this week. It will be nice to get some projects done around the house.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...*
