Outside My Window~ Hot Summer. This weekend is supposed to be unbearably hot. My garden is still not doing so well.
I am thinking~ I am thinking about fall and the start of home school. I really should get some lesson plans started. I am thinking about finishing up a photo project and organizing pictures into albums. I am thinking about tall pine trees, the scent of juniper and the mountains in eastern Oregon this week. I am still thinking about a cute little camper and taking it out to camp somewhere.
From the kitchen~ Something in the crock pot for today...spaghetti or ribs and scalloped potatoes with green salad
I am thankful for~ I am thankful for my job. I love staying at home and enjoying the company of my children and my dog.
I am wearing~ I am wearing a denim skirt and my nightshirt. My hair is up, being colored light brown. I colored it Tuesday, medium brown. I think my manly man though it was too dark. He came home from work that night and said..."Did you color your hair? You diiiiddd color your hair didn't you?" Then he walks to another room and when he returns he is chuckling. Why can't he just say it was too dark? It WILL eventually lighten up...next week, maybe.
I have been~ Not doing too much. Wishing we had a little hot tub or wading pool that wasn't full of tomatoes!
I am reading~ The Teaberry Strangler by Laura Childs...another very decent mystery with recipes and tea party ideas.
I am watching~
Around the house~ It's still pretty early around here. I hear the wind chimes and Cicada's outside. #1 son is already at work this morning. I am going to mess around on the computer today so it will stay fairly quiet.
I am Praying~ Praying for myself... praying that God would give peace and wisdom. Praying for the desires of my heart...I have several of those!
Upcoming Events~ We are taking #2 son and traveling 2 1/2 hours south this weekend. We have some special, long-time friends in the area and we want to see them.
They are missionaries on deputation (raising support) to go to New Zealand. They will be at a church Sunday presenting their ministry. We'll be staying in hotel Saturday and hopefully swimming a bit (it is supposed to be 100 degrees!) On Sunday morning we'll attend church with them. Afterward we'll return home, taking a leisurely drive up the NJ coast.
~~Have a great weekend friends!~~
