Hello Friday

It's Friday

Outside my window...  We have our June gloom here in the mornings.  It's cloudy in the mornings and by 10 a.m. the clouds have burned off and temperatures start increasing.  The past few days we've had highs of around 80 degrees.

I am thinking...  I am thinking I have a bit busy the last few weeks.  Doing things such as yard work and running around.

I am thankful...  I am always thankful to God for what he has given me over and above what I could ask or even think of.  I am so thankful.

Luke 6:35  " But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil."

In the kitchen...  Oh. . .  from the kitchen came good things.  Last night we had Cheesy Taco Soup with homemade corn chips sprinkled on top of each serving.  From the kitchen tonight we had vegetable pizza with garlic ranch sauce on the crust.

Those are my zucchini fries.

I am wearing...  I'm dressed cool today with a pair of tan shorts and green smocked tank top.  I've been working outside a lot this week and have had to change clothes several times.  This has led to a little more laundry.

I am creating...  It has been requested that I make the crib set for my new granddaughter.  I've got to get started on it.  I have yet to pick out the fabric but have some things I like.  The color is PURPLE!

I am going...  I am not planning on going anywhere that I can predict in the next few days.  Our big FAIR is scheduled to start soon and I want to go and spend a day there.  I'd also like to use our Legoland tickets and take one more trip there as an end of school celebration.

I am praying...  Continuing to pray for my little friend Anna-Renee.  She's had some good reports lately.  She does have a wonderful PHYSICIAN!  Praying for travel mercies for far away families.  Praying for my married children and my granddaughter, yet to be born.  Praying for my witness and spiritual growth. 

 I am reading...  I'm reading a silly book therefore not worthy to be mentioned.

We started a new series on that my boys really love.  But it does have a fir amount of witchcraft in it.  It's called Merlin.

 I am looking forward to...  Praying that one of these days I'll get to go camping, before it gets too hot around here.

From the learning rooms... My student worked ahead and has had the last two days off.  I'm going to try an work in an achievement test next week.  The test is not required, I'm just curious.

Around the house...  I bought a pair of 'satin' sheets made from polyester yesterday.  Not sure that I like them.  The blankets and pillows keep falling off the bed!

A favorite quote for today... 
 "When you focus on being a blessing, God makes sure that you are always blessed in abundance."
 Joel Osteen

One of my favorite things...  I love the smell of
Baby Magic Baby BathAnd Pampers baby diapers. Really. . .  I'm weird.


 A few plans for the rest of the week:  We're picking in the garden in the morning and passing out lettuce and zucchini to the neighbors.  Not sure what our family activity will be for the day.

A peek into my week...

We attended a wedding on Sunday afternoon.  A young couple in our church got married.  Her colors were purple and teal.  Many of the ladies that attended the wedding were also wearing a dark apricot color.  All the colors were pretty together.  It was a Mexican wedding with lots of traditions thrown in.  

 This is the centerpiece I made for the wedding reception head table.

I took my husbands TOY over to my friend Tonya's this week and helped her do yardwork.  We used the TOY to pull some big bushes out of the yard.  It was sooo FUN!

 I was able to bring some of the bushes home.  I think they are Bird of Paradise, Banana Palm and another type of palm tree.  Yesterday and today I planted my 'free' trees out by my garden.

(My many thanks goes out to Simple Woman's Daybook who hosts a gathering over on her blog.)


  1. I too love the smell of baby magic and diapers. In fact, I used baby magic lotion after my shower today. I still use it on my girls even though they are not babies anymore.

    A new exciting. It doesn't seem possible that you are going to be a grandma, you still seem too young. My mom was a young grandma. She was still having kids the same time I was! What a blessing to your family she will be.

    Happy Weekend! :)

  2. Looks like you have been busy with more then just the yard! Awesome quoye from Joel O. I love the smell of baby majic too!

  3. Sounds like you have been busy! I always wind up changing a lot during the summer months. It's so hard to stay clean when you're outside working in the dirt.

    Can't wait to see what you make for the crib! You're not weird. I love the smell of baby wash and diapers, too.

  4. Love to follow what you are doing. Busy woman. And don't we all love the clean scents that we associate with babies....

  5. The soup sounds delish! I need to make zucchini fries. Yum! The wedding pictures are beautiful. How fun to make the crib set, can't wait to see what you do! Lovely flower the verse from Luke. Hope you've had a nice weekend :)

  6. I need to come eat with you!! :-) :-)
