For Today: Tuesday, July 12th 2011
Outside my window... its another scorching hot day. Temps have been just over 100, with the heat index much higher. Yards are turning brown. Neighbors all trying to keep gardens and flower beds alive. My tomato plants are loving the heat.
I am thinking...up some inside summer activities for the kids this week.
I am thankful for...a God who is so gracious to forgive. Who gently nudges us back on track.
From the learning rooms...summer break. The kids are all signed up for the Library's Summer Reading Program, and have read over 60 books so far. They won certificates for free DQ Blizzards last week. What a treat!
From the kitchen...marinating some chicken breasts to toss on the grill later for fajita stir-fry. Need to set out another jar for sun tea.
I am wearing...denim shorts, and a black sleeveless blouse.
I am creating...a new website and promotional materials for our local MOPS group. (mothers of preschoolers)
I am going...to head out to pick up Ashleigh and Logan from vbs in an hour. They are both loving it. I am so glad. They were a little apprehensive about going to a new church with new kids in a new town.
I am reading...some christian novel, that has yet to really snag my interest. Guess its going back to the library - unfinshed :( Its rare that I dont finish a book. But since my "spare" time is so precious, no sense in wasting it.
I am hoping...my brother and his wife get a good showing on their house today. They just put it on the market last week, and we have been praying...its time for them to move closer to us :)
I am hearing...my almost-two yr old, playing with her little toy kitchen and singing to her babydoll while she feeds her.
Around the house...bathrooms waiting to be cleaned, laundry waiting to be folded,....
One of my favorite things...American Classics. Like apple pie & cheese, baseball games, bbq's, and summer road trips.
A few plans for the rest of the week...kids have VBS all week, a homeschool support group meeting Thurs, a Domestically Divine Diva's writing meeting Fri, and maybe a birthday party on Saturday.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…
