Outside my window... It's windy, cloudy, cold and really quite depressing today. We have only had a handful of warm days this year - Spring - Summer . . where are you?
I am thinking... That I need more sleep!! I'm just one of those people who need 8 hours of sleep at night and I only got maybe 3 hours?!?!?!
I am thankful for... Music - it is my therapy!
From the learning rooms... In the past few weeks, I have learned that I am stronger, physically than I thought I was. I have also learned that I have more patience than I thought I had . . . enough said . . .
From the kitchen... I think I will bake chicken today. It's always nice to have good smells coming from the oven on days like this.
I am wearing... Jeans and a t-shirt - barefoot, but thinking about shoes, at least Birks.
I am creating... A mess! I have not had a chance to really clean my house since the wedding. It seems like I have been running a million miles an hour! I need to settle down and concentrate on getting a few things done around my house. I would love to sew some cute things for my grandkids. My sister and I thought about making quilts with the boxes, and boxes, of fabric from my mother's home - she must have been collecting it!
I am going... To stay home today - I think my daughter and her two kids are coming to visit today - she's always fun to have around and I love to squeeze my sweet little grandkids.
I am reading... Still reading about Darby's Girls Camp - I have been enjoying it so much, but the only time I have to read is in the evening, so I don't make much progress!
I am hoping... That Averi, my sweet little granddaughter, does not have chicken pox!
I am hearing... Johnny Horton singing, "Whispering Pines". I know, it's an old song, but I love old songs.
Around the house... Cole, the dog is barking, the neighbor across the road is mowing his lawn, the wind is blowing through the pine trees, and the horses are sneaking a peek at a new colt at the end of the pasture. Even though I complain about the weather and not having enough time, things are actually very peaceful. Life just keeps rolling along. . . God is very good to me, I feel very blessed.
One of my favorite things... Skinny Cow icecream!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
I have a, Daughters of Utah Pioneers luncheon tomorrow.
Friday, we will probably try to get the garden tilled - maybe even get my tomatoes planted!
Who knows what the week-end will hold!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
No thought, this picture just reminds me of Summer . . . and daydreaming.
