Outside my window... Outside my window it's about 75 degrees. I'm sitting in my garage with the door open looking out on the busy street. I just cleaned the carpets in the truck and it's airing out. I'm listening to the Robins, Mockingbirds and some type of Finch singing their hearts out!
The Maple trees budded out this week. We should soon see leaves. The Oak trees are next. I don't like their pollen! It bothers me more than other pollens.
I am thinking... Thinking about those moving projects. I WILL be doing the pictures in the next few weeks. I've got to update the photo albums and get that picture wall current. All the things that will need dusted and organized. I did switch out my long sleeve clothes for short sleeve and organized three closets this week!
I am thankful... I am thankful we have a MOVE DATE!! The moving company will pack and pick up our things May 25-30th. We should be in San Diego for my manly man to report to his new job no later than June 13th. We are pretty stinking excited!
In the kitchen... Tonight it's homemade velveeta with shell macaroni, grilled chicken tenders and wilted spinach salad. I think we will go to the our version of Sam's Club, it's called BJ's, and shop for a beef roast tonight. Beef Roast is for Sunday dinner.
I am wearing... CAPRI pants, yeah SPRING!! I even wore sandals yesterday. I feel very white/pale. I'm also in short sleeves!
I am creating... We'll be cutting patterns for those TOY-ota seat covers soon. He wants to re-cover the sun visors first. I want to get that done as it's a major project. Yippee. . . that I don't have sew seat covers for the new truck as well. The new truck has leather seats and we wanted to get a cover on them so Banjo doesn't make holes and also to give a barrier between bare summer legs and hot seats for our trip cross country. This is the fabric we picked out for those seat covers.
I am praying... Praying for desires of my heart, as always. Praying for just the right little place that the Lord will have saved in San Diego for us. Praying for Maggie and Aaron during this deployment time, for his school date. For far away family. For wisdom. For my health. For my husband.
I am reading/watching...I am reading Clive Cussler's Skeleton Coast
We are watching The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones on Netflix
and watching a few Nature shows we found on PBS Nature. "Skunks"
I am looking forward to... I am looking forward to the weekend. Roast dinner on Sunday with Bachelor David, Chris, Sharon and Anastasia. Time spent with my handsome men.
From the learning rooms... We're still plugging along. Three digit addition with carrying, Writing complete sentences. Spelling.
I've got my notes done on New Testament Giving. I'll have to share.
Around the house... Floors have been vacuumed. Dishes are clean. I dusted last Friday. We've shown the house once already, last Saturday, and maybe some more in the future. We've advertised this place at my husbands work. I have a pumpkin candle in the candle melter, the house smells good.
One of my favorite things... I've posted before, that my husband likes to surf E-Bay for great finds, steals of deals, TOY-ota parts, more TOY-ota's etc. . .
I LOVE to look at houses. I like to drive by them at dusk when the lights are on but the curtains haven't been shut yet. I like to look at decorating magazines. I like to look at homes on craigslist! Zillow.com has been fun too!
The next three pictures are of a small horse ranch that's just above, and out of, our price range. It DOES have an in-law suite with kitchen . . . it's gorgeous!!
. . .and this last place, not sure if that is the house in far part of the picture, or if that is the acreage that comes with it. It's beautiful in San Diego this time of year!! So green.
Too bad I don't have a picture of the one that was listed on the street called Avenida Del Diablo! What a great name! I'd live there just for that name alone. Avenue of the Devil!! I thought that's where I live now?
And just because a new place needs new decorations . . .
Quilts for my bed
That's all for Thursday from my house. Have a great weekend friends!
