~~It's Thursday!~~


Outside my window~  We had snow yesterday.  It is cold again.  I loved the little teaser we experienced last week with a nice day.  It will be so nice to have winter over with.  We did get our first thunder and lightening storm last night.  It was surprising.

I am thinking~  I am thinking that I am a little blue this week.  I miss my oldest son.  He and his ship got underway for his first 'deployment' yesterday.  He is in for a 'rough' summer, swabbing the decks of the ship while it cruises the Caribbean sea.  I can't wait to hear his stories and see pictures.  I FEEL OLD.


I am thankful for~  I am thankful for a warm house, good food, a full  and cozy bed.  Lots of love and companionship.

From the learning room~  My student is doing well.  He learned about prefixes and homonyms this week.  I am doubling him up in work to try to meet our goal of finishing by April 30th.  I have not administered his achievement test yet.  I think I will next week. 

I started my correspondence course yesterday and got quite a bit done with the first class I selected, New Testament Survey.  I love being able to work at my own pace.

(busy with my studies)

From the kitchen~  From the kitchen tonight, grilled chicken tenders, garlic broccoli, velveeta macaroni and cheese with pear salads.


I am wearing~  Jeans and a turquoise blue stripped shirt, blue socks,  Hair is fixed and make up on.  I had to go and renew my dependent ID card today.  Don't ask to see that picture . . .it's very BAD!!
I am creating~ Creating. . .?  Not so much.  Got lots of ideas.  I really should splurge and get some pictures processed for albums.  I am a procrastinator with that project.  There is a store I want to go and check out.  HOMEGOODS.  Ever been there?  I need a change and am not sure what to do.  Only about 12 months left and then I'll have totally new place to decorate.  I am sooo excited.

I am going~  No plans for the next few days.  Next week I am going for my jury service.  Totally messes up any kind of planning.  I'm thinking I am glad we didn't have vacation plans for this time! 

I am reading/watching~ 

I am enjoying watching Tales from Avonlea.

I have just read Silent in the Sanctuary  (I need to find the books in order.  I may have read the first book , Silent in the Grave, the plot sounded familiar. . . ) this was a victorian romance/mystery and a decent reading book.)

  Around the house~  Clean, vacuumed, gently dusted.  I have two candles burning.  One is gingerbread and another vanilla cupcake.  Smells great!  My new sheets came and I put them on the bed right away.  They are generously sized and will hopefully soften up and shrink a bit after a good washing.  They are pretty and satin-y feeling.


I am praying~  I am always praying for the desires of my heart.  For the safety of my #1 son, for wisdom for him concerning his future plans.  For personal wisdom.  For far away family and them to have answers to their prayers. 

Praying especially for my dear friend Alison who lost her father last night.  It was totally unexpected.   I know he will be greatly missed.  Pray that she will have an opportunity to share about salvation with her family during this time.

Alison's father and mother.


Something to share~

Flowers from my manly man

A couple more mother of the groom dresses.


  1. You will love Homegoods! I could spend hours in there.

  2. leaving where are you going this time

  3. I love Homegoods!  It is part of Marshalls and TJMaxx.  Like the mother of the bride dresses, too. Do you have a choice where you are going or do they just send you somewhere? 

  4. I was talking to Madison about Home Goods just Friday!!! I LOVE that store.Praying for your friend and her loss.And boy, do I understand the "missing the #1 son part!" Me too. He was coming home tomorrow nite, but had to change it. So..... I had my hopes up.

  5. Poor Alison!!!   I dread saying good bye to either of my parents, even though I know I'll see them again soon!

  6. I am very sorry to hear of your friend Allison's loss! It's so hard having to say goodbye to loved ones.I like the mother of the groom dresses, the pics are kind of small though...are the brown or purple?

  7. @lunemoon - I tried and tried to get them bigger.  They are purple.  

  8. Aww, your son looks so handsome in his military uniform!  Praying hard for Alison and her mom. Bless their hearts. I can only imagine what they must be going through. Love your new bedsheets and comforter. Soo pretty!

  9. My father-in-law says that early lightening means there will be a late frost.  You'll have to let us know if you have a May frost.  Test the theory.
