Outside my window~ Warm and beautiful.
I am thankful for~ I am thankful for so much. Too much to list. I am thankful for my husband. For my home. For my stuff. For my children.
"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which ye are called in one body;
and be ye thankful."
From the learning room~ Both myself and my student are spending a lot of our time reading. I am reading through the New Testament and am in the book of Luke. My student devours books from the library almost the same day as they are brought home.
From the kitchen~ The kitchen cupboards are kinda bare. I need to stock up and I am waiting until it was closer to pay day.
Wednesday~ Grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken and rice soup with cheese
Thursday~ Baked cod with cheese topping, rice a roni, wilted spinach
Friday~ Homemade pizza and coca cola
Saturday~ Grilled chicken, baked sweet potato, green salad
Sunday~ Corn dogs and tator tots, corn
I am wearing~ Still not dressed. In my robe. Yep, it feels good too!
I am creating~ I will soon be creating some new curtains and decorating my new toy. Yes we finally bought a camp trailer on Sunday afternoon. We've been desiring one for many, many years.
I pulled these pictures off craigslist so I don't have a picture of the camper open except for the one of the table.
I'll be sewing new privacy curtains. The ones that came with the camper are pink. Not too manly looking. I'll either do a blue or a green curtain.
Eventually. . .we'll be building a toy hauler trailer for my husbands TOY-ota.
(similar to these)
I am thinking~ Thinking about the joys of summer. Thinking about friends. Posting a few more pictures of our Annapolis, Maryland trip. Our friends Chris and Sharon were able to join us for two days of sightseeing
AAaarrrgghhh. . . PIRATES!
I am watching~
and Road to Avonlea
We've also seen all of the episodes of Shaun the Sheep cartoons and LOVED them. NETFLICKS is reasonably priced entertainment.
Favorite Things~ Not sure what to say in this category this week. I have so many favorites. Fishing tops my favorites list right now. We went fishing on Sunday after buying the trailer. My husband caught some poison ivy and we caught a neat fish. I left the camera in the van
(This is a cute picture though. . .all the buddies fishing together!)
Around the house~ Needs vacuumed, needs dusted, clean dished need put away, beds need made, hummingbird food needs made.
I am praying~ Praying for our transfer season. The 'shopping' list should come out soon. Praying for far away family. Praying for my husband.
Something to share~ I am thankful swimming. Yes, I participate in mixed swimming. Hopefully I am teaching my son's about controlling their eyes and their thoughts. My swim clothes are modest. Most of the other Mommies I've seen at the pool are modest as well. I've dropped 5 pounds and 2 and 3/4 inches since starting swimming. I am not too unhappy with my body. I feel I have a matronly shape. I'd be happier with myself if I lost about 10 pounds. But my BMI is within an acceptable range. Normal Is 18.5- 24.9 mine is 23 right now. My weight isn't bad. My son and I are having fun! That's important to me.
p.s that's not me on the left . . .
~~Have a GREAT week Friends!~~
