Outside my window... It's supposed to be cooling down after tempretures in the 8o's this week. yesterday the high was 92 degrees. Where did spring go? It should be in the low 70's for the next five days.
I am thinking... Thinking about yard work and preparing my house for company.
I am thankful... Thinking about the Lord's mercy today. He sure does give it freely and abundantly to me!
"The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works."
In the kitchen... I'm not sure what will be for dinner tonight. I need to get back to creating menu's. We haven't had one since we've been eating out of the freezer these last few weeks. I've got a full pantry though and some creative juices going. Some good things will be coming out of that kitchen!
I am wearing... I've been really lazy about my schedule while recovering from my surgery. I'm still in my jammies. I'll shower soon then go out to Wal-Mart to get a few cleaning supplies.
I am creating... Thinking about getting some things done. I'm still limited in my abilites. I really need to get out and work in the yard. I've got lots of company coming in the next 8 weeks. I'd like to finish wall decorations, make a bed skirt for the office bed and get ready for company.
I am going... I'd like to go for a ride into the mountains tomorrow, maybe with a picnic. I want to gatrher sticks for my garden. For the peas and for making a shade covers.
I am praying... I am praying for the desires of my heart, praying for far away family, for my married children and their upcoming move to Juneau, Alaska,
praying for this. . .
I am reading/watching...
I'm reading a Lori Wick book. I really don't like her writing style. I forget that and just get excited to see Christian books in the library and grab them without remembering I may not care for the writing style of the author. Her men characters are definitely not like my man, so sensitive to a females emotions and sensitive to her needs and wants. She writes to mushy, like a Harlequin Romance.
We've watched 3 movies made by a christian homeschooler in the last two weeks. He's received prizes for his achievements through the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival.
I am looking forward to... I am looking forward to being back to normal. Accomplishing tasks.
From the learning rooms. . . We've cut back on science and history to spend our day on the basics. Most days we've been done by lunch time. It's been pretty boring. We've not participated in field trips for a while. We're talking about visiting Starbucks soon for a day of school there.
Around the house... I vacuumed yesterday! Cleaned toilets and sinks and changed sheets on my bed. Felt good too!
A favorite quote for today...
One of my favorite things...
I'm still singing the praises of Netflix. Where else would you be able to find good ,christian movies to rent? I never saw them at Blockbuster or Redbox!! Netflix is commercial free. It's relatively in expensive. YOU get to control what your family watches!
A few plans for the rest of the week: I'm going out in a while to shop at Wal Mart. Then I will head over to church to deep clean and sanitize the nursery. One of the children has a staph infection of the eye and the other two children are ill as well with various ailments. I am one worker who doesn't want to be ill!!
A peek into my week... These were taken over the weekend when he was finishing up putting soil in the garden boxes and smoothing gopher holes from the field behind our house.
~~Have a great weekend!!~~
