FOR TODAY October 21, 2010
Outside my window... The sky is the perfect color of blue, there is a slight breeze, just enough to make the leaves on the trees fall softly to the ground every now and then. What a beautiful day!
I am thinking... How I should be outside, in that beautiful, perfect weather picking my tomatoes. I have been really sick for the last week, and I really just don't feel like going outside . . . . sigh . . . :0(
I am thankful for... A wonderful, understanding husband. He works so hard, day in and day out, very seldom taking a vacation, making sure that I am happy and content. I don't think I tell him often enough how much he is loved!
From the learning rooms... In the last week I have learned that my dog responds to just my lips moving! I have a terrible cold and lost my voice for about two days. It didn't matter to the dog, I could just tell him to "sit down", with no noise coming out and he would do it! My dog can read lips!! You are a good dog Cole!
From the kitchen... Nothing from my poor kitchen!
I am wearing... Gray sweats, and an orange t-shirt.
I am creating... I think I just need to delete this one . . . what do you think?
I am going... To a funeral on Saturday. Two of my cousins passed away this week. Richard Sharp, was only 60 years old. He was killed in a car accident on Tuesday morning - a potato truck ran a stop sign and hit him, very sad. He left behind a wife, 5 children, 18 grandchildren, his mother, a sister and 2 brothers. He was good man. Another cousin passed away this morning, same side of the family. Elaine Yospe, was, I believe, about 86 years old. She was my father's 1st cousin. She was a wonderful woman, I sure did love her. Their family had a cabin right up the hill from our family's cabin when we were growing up, so we made lots of wonderful memories that will never be forgotten. She will be greatly missed.
I am reading... Drowning Ruth. It's an Oprah Book Club book and an interesting one at that!!
I am hoping... That I can get over this sickness streak that I have had. I have one of those weak immune systems. The minute I get upset . . . I get sick!
I am hearing... Rod Stewart singing, "I'll Be Seeing You" . . . I think I'm going to cry, I love that song.
Around the house... Oh, I have been so terribly lazy!
One of my favorite things... Apple crisp, with vanilla ice cream and homemade caramel topping. Oh, dang it!! I forgot I'm on diet . . . in that case - fresh apples, cut up, sprinkled with cinnamon!!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Babysit in the morning - Jessica and Ben are going to an appointment to find out if they are having a girl or a boy!!
Funeral on Saturday
Church on Sunday
Here are pictures and a thought I am sharing...
Last week I went and watched Emily and Brody take swimming lesson. They were so cute, standing in line with their arms folded, being so obedient!
The water was cold that day and Brody wanted me to get him out of the water - he was very hard to resist!!
The cold didn't bother Emily - she was all smiles!!
Emily showing us that angels really can fly!
They passed!! Caleb didn't take lessons, but who can resist a cute boy wanting his picture taken?
