Outside my window…The sun is out, but it is still a little on the cooler side. I really am anxious for the warmer weather to get here.
I am thinking…I am really glad that we decided to go ahead with the plans to rebuild the deck. As much as I didn’t want to have the huge expense, I am grateful that we will have a place to hang out during the warmer weather. Right now, there is still a 4-week backorder on the decking we chose. I am trying very hard to be patient…..
I am thankful… I am thankful that I have such a wonderful husband. Perhaps I might have mentioned it before, but he still amazes me with what he does for me and our family. Every time I think he can’t do more for us, he turns around and astounds me more!
In the kitchen… Stuck in a rut is the only way to put it.
I am wearing… Yoga pants and a top. I am off today, and I don’t have to go anywhere, so I am going for the clean & casual look.
I am creating… A mess?? I really need to get this house back under control.
I am going… Get myself caught up on ironing! And laundry. And cleaning the bathroom. Ugh, does it ever end?
I am wondering... If I can survive baseball season without gaining too much weight. All the eating out is bad, but when we are on the run, it is something that can’t be avoided.
I am reading…Harry Potter. I’ve read them before, but I recently purchased them in e-book format, so I need to start all over
I am hoping… That something that I have been avoiding will get done. It’s something I know I should do because it is expected of me, but at the same time, I don’t want to set myself up for the hurt all over again. I need prayers and strength.
I am looking forward to… Just being with my family. And making our home a haven. I am starting to look forward to our vacation in June to Wildwood, and a second road trip to Ohio/Wisconsin in July.
I am learning…That life is short, you have to make the most of it before it’s too late. And that faith in God is the only way to live your life.
Around the house… Just trying to keep things presentable. Making sure I am making the beds daily, and that the sink is empty. It really makes a big difference. And doing at least one load of laundry a day. I am also trying to keep up with ironing. At last these things *must* be done before any blogging or networking starts. And stop talking about the above statement, and just do it!
I am pondering… How to declutter some stuff without my family noticing things are gone.
A favorite quote for today… “Just Do It”. It’s an oldie, but definitely a goodie!
One of my favorite things… Sitting outside in the Spring, with warm sunshine, light breezes, and sunshine! Wait, didn’t I already say sunshine? Yes, I know. I am a broken record when it comes to the nicer weather.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
