Outside my window... Blue sky, breezy, warm, lots of grain dust, but a very nice Indian Summer afternoon.
I am thinking... That I get as antsy about Fall cleaning as I do Spring cleaning. I have been in one of those moods where I just want to clean every nook and cranny - I've gone through all of my music, which is no easy task - I'm a music junkie! I have a whole box to give away, and threw away just as many. I felt really guilty, but most were cassette tapes. I remember when I felt bad about getting rid of eight-track tapes, can anyone remember those?! I think they are probably antiques now!!
I am thankful for... Friendship. I don't have a lot of close friends who I talk with on a regular basis, but the true friends I have, are priceless to me. A wonderful friend called me tonight. She is from Missouri, and is visiting her parents here in Idaho. She wanted to know if we could get together - just for a little while, just to catch up on family and kids. I of course can't wait to see her!!!!
A scripture I'm sharing...
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. ~1 John 4:10

I am wearing... White capris and a fuchsia shirt. No shoes right now, cause I painted my toenails!
I am creating... Still not creating - but I am thinking of so many things I could, should, and want to be creating! My kitchen is waiting to be painted - so is my computer room. The bathroom in the basement needs to be finished, and I have fabric just crying out my name!! This all sounds like work but I call it "creating ambiance" !
I am going... To go with my husband tonight so he can buy a new pair of boots. Apparently, his boots don't have enough leather on them . . . anyway that's what they tell him at work :0}
I am reading... I'm still reading the same book I have been reading for weeks! It's actually a very big fat book, and, I usually only read in the evening, before I go to bed.
I am hoping... That my tomatoes get ripe! The plants are huge and covered with tomatoes but they are still green. I have to remember that we are at least two weeks behind in our growing season, but I'm getting impatient for a nice ripe tomato! My husband is going to give them a hair-cut tomorrow night, they are looking pretty shaggy - that will force them to turn red. My husband is the one with the green thumb, not me!
Around the house... Refer to - "I am thinking" and "I am Creating"!
One of my favorite things... Crawling into bed at night with nice clean sheets!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
It''s my beautiful daughter's birthday on the 19th of August - Happy Birthday Amber!! I hope you have a wonderful, fun filled day, with lots of hugs and smiles! I'm also hoping to get to see her for a few minutes - she's a busy girl!!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
"Kiss of the sun for pardon. Song of the birds for mirth. You're closer to God's heart in a garden than any place else on earth."
