Outside My Window~ Cooling down from yesterday. It hit over 90 degrees. We enjoyed a fabulous thunder and lightening storm on the drive home from church. Tomorrow's weather looks to be much of the same heat as yesterday.
From The Learning Rooms~ Review of money. Spelling started this week. My student is learning lots of new words to read, 4 and 5 letters long!
From The Kitchen~ No chowder this week. It's too hot. I am going to get a batch of Rosemary Bread going in the morning. I'll make some kind of pasta with grilled chicken and a simple salad for Sharon and baby Anastasia. Not sure what I'll fix for tonight. Maybe something easy like taco's.
I Am Wearing~ Still in my pajama's. I am going to at least take the morning off from school. Hit the shower and then go to the thrift store. I am looking for a simple denim jacket to add to my fall wardrobe. Do any of you shop at Coldwater Creek? I love their clothes! Between that store and Christopher Banks, I could really outfit myself. I did find some long winter skirts in the Chadwicks catalog recently, two of them arrived yesterday. A little retail therapy for Beth's state of mind recently!
one is this tan color and one in black
one skirt is this denim color and one in chocolate brown. . . on backorder but should be here within the next few weeks.
. . . and this sweater
. . . and this dress should come today . . wouldn't it be cute with a denim jacket over the top and a chunky, funky necklace?
My beautiful new boots arrived a few weeks ago.
I keep telling myself, if these last 4 years like my last pair of winter boots, the price over a 4 year period is not so bad!
I am creating~ Nothing today. I have a wedding gift I need to create. I am thinking of doing a painting. I'll post pictures when that project is complete.
I Am Praying~ Isaiah 41:13
"For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. "
I am still claiming this verse from last week. I am a bit better . . . today. Keep praying for us to have wisdom. I am unable to share the details about what's going on.
Around The House~ Suitcase is out. Maps are out. I was on the computer for several hours yesterday researching hotel locations for out Anniversary Trip. #1 son will remain home to hold down the fort. The rest of us will be driving to Maine. We'll be gone about a week. I am not sure how much fall color we'll be able to see. It will be a treat just to be away seeing God's creation, together.
One Of My Favorite Things~
Sharing~ A few blog sights I thought were interesting. Especially the gal who remakes clothes. What talent!
~~ Have a great weekend! ~~
