For Today...June 14, 2010

Outside my window...It's cloudy and rainy today. Those are same first five words from last week's weather...:) No storms though, just summer showers. =)

I am thinking...how much we enjoyed Selina's (Amanda's friend:) Senior flute recital last Wednesday night! Selina is amazingly talented and makes every song look so easy to play-- and they were not!! She is a beautiful young lady--inside and out. Her brother played a wonderful duet with her also. One talented family!
Amanda and Evan joined her on stage for a few songs from Archie- their band. I hope no one got hit in the eye with flying buttons- from we parents and their siblings "bustin' some buttons" as they sang and played several songs they had written as well as some great "covers". :) It was their first time in front of a large audience -from 50-70 people--and they were fantastic. (in this mother's humble opinion;)
Also Jonathan came home from Milwaukee for the concert and work related things- and Tim and Brooke came-- and then we had pizza and frozen yogurt back at home afterward.

I am thankful for...summertime! I have always loved the summer -- when school is out and schedules change- the warm weather, flowers and the green grass, vacations. Just love it!:)

From the kitchen... lasagna- if there is still some mozzarella cheese left:) and a green salad.

I am wearing...red shirt, blue capris.

I am hoping...make some headway on our bedroom organization and some redoing. Got some changes in mind:)

I am hearing... rain on the streets as cars go by, birds chirping ( love it:), a song on youtube that I am playing as I write this.

I am remembering...when we were growing up, how fun it was for our family to go to our aunt and uncle's house to spend the night! That was a big outing for us! And fun with the cousins! Good times!:)

I am praying... for all the gulf coast people and businesses who are affected by the oil leak and that an answer to how to stop it and then clean up comes quickly.
And continuing to pray for my mom's healing from her surgery.

Around the house... Hubby was able to pick up several office chairs ( replacing some old ones here) at a silent auction where he works. The bids started at $1 and each went for under $5- they are like new- they had ALOT to sell after combining some office spaces. We also replaced our tv in the bedroom for $13.50 from the auction! I know! It's a twin to the one we had, but bigger, so we knew what we were getting. It doesn't have all the fancy new pixel this and HD that, but it works great!

On my mind...how good God is...and how I need those new mercies every morning.

One of my favorite things... vintage tablecloths. I have seen a few on several blogs lately and they remind me of some that we grew up with on our table. Does that make me vintage too? I guess so...:)

A few plans for the rest of the week...getting ready for Father's Day.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...*

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your daybook today. You have a lovely family. Those babies are precious! ~ I love vintage things as well. Even people, but I wouldn't say your vintage! :)

Oh did you mention Vintage? I love Vintage and need to start using tablecloths until we refinish our table.

Enjoy your week!

Blessings,

I love vintage tablecloths, too. I love vintage stuff, period. It all has so much character and makes me think of when life was a little more simple. Love that!

You got some great deals there Linda!! That's awesome! I love it when that happens!

Amanda is such a cutie!

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Vintage tablecloths are so pretty! I use a lot of tablecloths because of so much company but I don't own a vintage one.
Have a great week!

The concert sounded so great, it made me wish I could of been there. My brother and I played in the band in high school and were always so happy that my folks came and enjoyed the music! Blessings to you this week:)

I have been enjoying those vintage tablecloths I have seen recently too. And I loved staying over night with cousins too.
