FOR TODAY June 30, 2010
Outside my window... It's partly cloudy, the sun is playing hide and seek with us! Not too hot, but a little muggy. We had a big thunder storm last night with lots of rain, it felt nice because yesterday was very hot!
I am thinking... How happy I will be to get my hair cut!! I have always worn my hair short and kind of spiky in the back. But, the last 6 or 8 months I have been growing it out a little. BAD idea! I can't wait to get it shorter and back in control :0)
I am thankful for... My family as always. Yesterday, I had a luncheon at my house, it was so much fun. I invited, my mother, an aunt, who traveled here for a funeral, another aunt, who lives here and my sister. It was so wonderful to see my mother and her two sisters together - mother is the oldest, and more like a mother to her sisters. I treasure those times that I get to spend with them, we had a great time catching up. It was my sisters birthday on the 26th, so we had cake and ice cream to celebrate her special day.
Words I am pondering on...
"I enjoy doing housework, ironing, washing, cooking, dishwashing. Whenever I get one of those questionaires and they ask what is your profession, I always put down housewife. It's an admirable profession, why apologize for it. You aren't stupid because you're a housewife. When you're stirring the jam you can read Shakespeare."
From the kitchen... Not sure what is going to come out of my kitchen today! I might make pizza with whole wheat crust and veggie topping with very little cheese (doesn't sound too appealing does it?) Between my gallbladder bothering me and my
I am wearing... Jeans and a pink t-shirt, shoes will come later.
I am creating... I have decided to start making a picture journal - I will post more about it later . . . I can't wait to get started on it!
I am going... To go get my hair cut today at 4:30. Now, I just have to figure out how I want it. Have you ever noticed the books you look at with hairstyles in them,the models all wear the strangest styles - I mean really, I never see anyone walking around with their hair sticking straight out to the side of their head, really? Even if it's a cute style, the picture shows it styled in the strangest way - so you can't even tell what it really looks like - I think I'm getting too old for those books. Remember the Golden Girls? They had one show that they all went to a famous hairdresser to have their hair done, and the hairdresser told them that they would all look beautiful and unique! When they were done, they all had the exact same hair style, only a different color :0) That's what I am so afraid of . . . I don't like looking like other people - I like looking like me.
I am reading...The Wednesday Letters, by Jason F. Wright. It's an interesting read. Kind of sad in some places but interesting and fun in other parts. Makes you think about your life. It's been a fun book.
I am hoping...That my husband will take the day off tomorrow - I really do love to spend time with him. Also hoping that my kids will be able to spend Saturday with us to celebrate the 4th of July. We always have such a good time, I'm very fortunate to have them all close enough that we can get together without too much planning.
I am hearing... The birds singing, soft music on my computer and the clicking of my computer keys.
Around the house... Well, I should be doing more than what I am doing, but . . . it's one of those lazy days. I am finding pleasure this morning just blogging and thinking about the things I should be doing - I'll get there, eventually. I still need to make my bed and fold a batch of laundry. Of course I could vacuum the family room, finish up my ironing, do some mending, cut out a pattern or ten, scrub and kitchen floor, clean the toilets, sweep out the garage, learn to knit and re-organize my genealogy, but that might be overkill on a day like today, don't you agree?
One of my favorite things... Icy cold limeade with ginger in it!
A few plans for the rest of the week
Haircut today at 4:30!
Plan my menu and get groceries tomorrow.
Weigh in on Friday.
Saturday - celebrate with my family!
Monday - try to finish up all those "honey do's" with my husband.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time
