Outside my window…The sun is out, but it is still cold. It was rainy and miserable yesterday, so I am grateful that the sun is out today.
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.
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!
I am wondering... If I can get a few of my readers to volunteer their time doing a guest post. I don’t have much to offer than a grateful “thank you”, so I am not sure if it is possible.
I am reading…Nothing right now.
I am hoping… That Leia’s paw will heal quickly. Our poor pup(not really a pup, as she is almost 11 years old)hurt her paw on Saturday when we were outside playing. She got her nail caught in the grass, and it broke in half. They had to cut it the rest of the way off. Thankfully they gave her pain meds and antibiotics.
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… “What do you mean we have to do push-ups? This is baseball practice!”
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.
