Outside my window... It's cool today. Rain showers are expected most of the week. I like rain showers. The rain helps keep the temperatures down and the grass very green.
I am thinking... Thinking about all my things to do. I guess that's a never ending project right now.
I am thankful... I am so thankful for my little family.
In the kitchen... A Menu!
Monday- green salad and baked sweet potatoes
Tuesday- Soft Taco Dinner
Wednesday- Apricot Chicken, Rice a Roni, Green Beans, Fruit
Thursday- Tomato Soup, grilled cheese sandwiches
Friday- Afredo Stuffed Jumbo Shells, green salad, garlic bread, cupcakes
Saturday- firepit hotdogs, macaroni salad, baked beans, pistachio salad
Sunday- Grilled Pork Chops, baked potatoes, salad
I am wearing... Black tee shirt, comfy skirt, long socks
I am creating... My creating looks like a big dis-assembly. I've gotten some things down from the walls.
Patched a few holes. I'm just trying to do a bit here and there and not do it all at once. That's hard for me.
- Clean out freezer
- Install the new seat covers in the truck
- Wipe down fridge in/out
- clean stove
- wash windows in/out
- vacuum thoroughly
- finish pulling stuff off walls
- patch holes
- clean area rugs
- rub out stain on downstairs carpet
- clean cupboards
- pack the things for the trip
I am praying... Praying for the desires of my heart. Praying for my health. Praying for far away family. Praying for my married children. Praying for the desires of my heart.
I am reading... I am reading Lionclaw by Nancy Springer. These books are not as good as the sister of Sherlock Holmes ones were. There is a lot more magic and mysticism in this series about Robin Hoods daughter.
We are continuing our Due South series. Also watching a bit of Quincy.
I watched a great chic flick the other night called Bonneville. Three friends travel in an old Bonneville car from Idaho to Santa Barbara, California. (There is more to the story, but the story was the movie, I'd hate to give it away.)
I am looking forward to... We're all looking forward to our drive out to California and the beautiful scenery we will see. We're all looking forward to getting to San Diego and starting our house hunt. I think my husband looks forward to getting settled into his new job.
From the learning rooms...Multiplication, synonyms, antonyms, sentences, spelling. School on the bed toady. The teacher is taking a rest day.
Around the house... Ha! I apologize for my poor houses appearance every time someone comes over. I am not a messy housekeeper.
One of my favorite things... One of my favorite things. . .catalogs and magazines! I love to look at them!
This is a good free catalog with cutesie things in it. The furniture reminds me of Pottery Barn. The rugs and bedding seem to be good prices.
(I'm really loving this quilt. Maybe with a teal accent wall and lots of teal throw pillows with a lime green bed skirt.)
Leaving you with~ We drove to New London, Connecticut last Wednesday to attend and a graduation at the Coast Guard Academy for an Officer Candidate. The young man had been a co-worker of my husbands about 8 years ago. It was a LONG drive. After the graduation we drove into Mystic Connecticut and had pizza at Angie's Pizza "Where the locals go!"
