For Today...

Outside my window... It's a quiet morning around here.  Even outside.

I am thinking... About my TEA on Saturday.  I wonder what the turnout will be.  Church was pretty sparse last night.  Lots of families on vacation.  Here is my menu:  Turkey salad on croissants,  Roast Beef with spicy horseradish sauce on white bread, Cucumber on dark rye, Strawberry cream scones with clotted cream and lemon curd, Chocolate Almond brownies, Peanut butter snowballs, Lemon Blossoms, chocolate dipped strawberries, and 3 different hot teas and peach sweet iced tea.

From the learning rooms... Q and R number reviews and library trips, bead crafts, bike riding playing hard.

I am thankful for... I am thankful I can cook!

From the kitchen... Taco Salad tonight!

I am wearing... Jammies!

But I am thinking about this dress for my anniversary cruise

Asymmetrical Contrast Trim Dress - Christopher & Banks

Cinched Plaid Shirt - Christopher & Banks

((I also love this blouse...))

I am reading... Mysteries of course.  A new one starts tonight!

I am hoping... to hear reports of answered prayers, mine and others...

I am creating... I will be cooking in force tomorrow for the tea.  I bought some watch faces on the internet in gold colors.  They look great with orange beads.  Next week I'll post some more pictures of them.  I think one will be a prize for the teacup beauty contest at the TEA.


I am praying... for so much and so many.  God is so good to hear me!

Around the house... Looking forward to a good thunderstorm that doesn't happen in the middle of the night and watching some fireflies!

One of my favorite things... Fishing, Camping, camp food, campfires...aahhh...

A few plans for the rest of the week... Going to Sam's Club tonight with my manly man to get bread and strawberries for Saturday's TEA.  We are going to launch model rockets Saturday afternoon with our friends Chris and Sharon. 

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