~It's Not Thursday!~

(San Diego Harbor last Sunday afternoon.  This picture looks right out on the Navel Air Station at Coronado)


Outside my window...  A really pleasant day today.  Our high was 77 degrees.  I am thankful for the cooler weather. 

I am thinking...  I am thinking about so much.  To do lists.  Placing orders.  Decorating.  Thrift store shopping.  Camping. Cars. 

I am thankful...  Thankful for God's provision.  Thankful for answered prayer.

In the kitchen...  I was wanting to make meatloaf, mashed potatoes, gravy, a veg tonight.  But now I think I might poop out on that idea.

I am wearing...  Denim capri's and a orange checked shirt that reminds me of Daisy Duke's clothing.

I am creating...  I am finally sewing on those dust ruffles for both of the California King beds.  I thought I got a picture of the sewing pile, but I did not.

I went...  Last night we had a fantastic date.  We bought concert tickets to hear the bluegrass band, Steep Canyon Rangers with Steve Martin on the Banjo.  We went out to eat at a barbecue place first then headed to the open air concert.  We got the neighbor girl, Chelsea to babysit for us.  She is a nice girl.  Sadly, I did not get a picture of her, though I wanted too!

See this link on you tube! 

Orange Blossom Special

At a restaurant called Phil's BBQ waiting in line to order and get seats.

The line in front of us.

(My dinner pork ribs, Cole slaw, french fries and onion ring garnish with unsweetened tropical tea.)

(A picture of the band)

(Camera's were not allowed during the concert.  So....sneakily I whipped mine out and took two pictures.  This is my proof to you that I went!)

(That is Steve Martin)

I am praying...  Praying for the desires of my heart.  Praying for my health.  Praying for far away family.  Praying for our church search and that we will agree which one to return to.

I am reading/watching...  We traveled to a different library yesterday.  They had the new Joanne Fluke book, Cinnamon Roll Murder.  I am currently reading that.  She is the author that includes recipes with her mysteries!

Still enjoying all of our NETFLIX series.  Quincy, Six Million Dollar Man, Bionic Woman, and Poirot. 

We watched a great program called God of Wonders  telling how the world was formed from a creation standpoint instead of evolutionary theory.

From the learning rooms...  I will be ordering our curriculum this weekend.  Today we bought paper, pencils, glue and erasers.  I am excited to work on science this year.  We are going to try to hatch chicken eggs and raise a chicken as a fair project.

Around the house...  One of landlords came by this week to checkout a project that they need to complete.  So I cleaned the house and straightened the yard.  Everything looks good.

One of my favorite things...

Cherry flavored kool-aid made with 1/2 the amount of sugar it calls for.  Really good with sandwiches and popcorn.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  I am having my friend Tonya and her family over for babyholding dinner tomorrow.  We're having surf and turf, baked potatoes, big green salad, Tres Leche Cake
and sugar free Layered Chocolate Pudding Dessert.

Something to Share...  Our neighbors have a great grand daughter that has been spending the days with her grandparents while her parents worked this summer.  School starts for Cammie on Monday so the children are spending their last play day together today.  They've had sooo much fun the last 6 weeks playing with chickens, swimming,  playing lego's and playing Barbies.  She will be missed by my #2 son.

~~Have a Great Weekend!~~


  1. Looks like you guys are really thriving out there in CA!  Glad your son had 6 great weeks of fun with Cammie before she had to go back to school.   Thanks for sharing the pix of the concert. 


  3. LOVE your new hairstyle!!!!!!And I had meatloaf tonight......from Cracker Barrel. Mountain Man does NOT like meatloaf so the only time I get it is out!

  4. You've been a busy girl! Glad to see all is going well! The desserts look wonderful!
