Outside my window... darkness approaches...hey the fireflies appeared Sunday night. I've been looking forward to them. They are so unique and different!
I am thinking... about friends and family and had this verse running through my head all day~
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. " Jeremiah 29:11
From the learning rooms... letter P and number 10, some review of past letters and numbers.
I am thankful for... contentment
From the kitchen... tonight we feasted on homemade fried rice, egg rolls and wantons. Yummy! Tomorrow I am preparing to have those great steak burritos we loved so much last time.
I am wearing...jeans, short sleeve navy tee, bare feet with newly painted toes...
I am reading... A silly, silly, silly christian "romance" It is so silly I may not read it at all and find another book to read. It reads too much like a harlequin romance novel, not that I know such things...
I am hoping... we have a great, safe time on a few days away from home. Yes, we are driving to New Hampshire to trade auto parts for my husbands Toyota project. We are taking #2 son and the dog along. #1 son will stay close to our church to help prepare for youth conference we are hosting Thursday and Friday. We're leaving Sunday after the morning service, and coming home Tuesday afternoon. I'll be sure to take pictures.
I am creating... I am getting things organized for a ladies tea I am hosting July 11th at church. Hospital-i-TEA, to be exact. My devotion is pretty much done. I am ironing out some wrinkles in a Miss Manners quiz. I found two doorprizes at the flea market this week. I need to find a couple burgundy table cloths at the thrift store and but or borrow another tea pot.
I am praying... for wisdom, for answers to prayer, for my witness to others, for my love for my husband, for my children...and so much more!
Around the house... It should be getting quieter. I smell a cinnamon air freshener and hear the dehumidifier running across the room.
One of my favorite things... Music like what my Dad used to listen to. Golden Oldies. I wish we had a radio station for them around here. I haven't found one yet that has what I want.
A few plans for the rest of the week... well I am all packed already, my church clothes are already pressed, #2 son's clothes are packed and his church clothes are ready. I need to pack some cd music for our trip. I gave up packing for my manly man, he thought the outfit I picked for church was too casual. I gave up on him! Have to make sure the house is clean before I leave.
((there are some things about Alaska that I miss--that is a salmonberry, it made great jam! (that is my hand holding the berry..))
