It's Thursday


Outside my window...The sun is just peeking through some of the windows.  I love that early morning light.  It makes the house look so cozy!

I am thinking...About clothes shopping for our cruise.  On our little swimming adventure Tuesday, my husband told me he doesn't like my swimsuit!  I've worn the same style for almost 10 years!  Better change that...  I also found another little black dress that I 'love'  It is sold by Avon.

Slim Wear Shirred Waist Dress

I am thankful for...The relaxing dog days of summer.

 From the learning rooms...No learning today.  My student is trying to find other ways to fry his little brain.  Computer games, spiderman videos and more...

From the kitchen...I may roast another chicken outside on the grill to go with fresh sweet corn and heirloom tomatoes I bought at the farmstand yesterday!

I am wearing...I'm in my pj's still and clutching my cup of black coffee!

I am creating... Nothing right now... it's wonderful

I am going...I went grocery shopping yesterday and the only thing I didn't get is potatoes.  It is so convenient to have a little grocery store one block away!

I am reading...One of my favorite, decent writing, mystery authors...Carol Higgins Clark...

I am hoping...I'm always hoping that the Lord will answer prayers, mine and others!

I am hearing...The news being read and the traffic report.

Around the house...Got some dust bunnies hanging out, the rugs need vacuumed today.

One of my favorite things...Sitting in one of my massaging recliners with soothing music playing, a glass of iced tea by my side,a good book in my hand and a spicy candle burning on the table.

  A few plans for the rest of the week:  Momma's mini spa day.  Nails and hair...anybody want to join me?

Here is picture thought I am sharing...More mushroom pictures.  These little-big mushrooms are growing on the woodpile.
