monday and all day


Saw this on Ali E's site, which she found here: apple like oranges . Inspired by The Simple Woman's Day Book What a great way to capture a day.

Outside my window...84 degrees, sunny and breezy. Just beautiful.

I am thinking...about my girls and helping them through their challenges.

I am thankful very, very much. I am abundantly blessed.

From the kitchen...chicken baking in the crock pot getting ready for Mexican Chicken Soup for dinner.

I am wearing...long shorts and the t shirt from today's VBS.

I am creating...birthday presents for Gracie: pj's.

I am make our menu for the week.

I am reading...Heaven by Randy Alcorn; Happiness is a Serious Problem by Dennis Prager; Beth Moore's Psalms of Ascent.

I am hoping...we can get all our yard projects done before family visits in 2 weeks.

I am hearing...KRLA radio online. I miss So Cal.

Around the house...the older kids are working on a puzzle in the dining room right where all my sewing stuff is out. Sort of messy. But it is a well used home, and that makes one joyful.

One of my favorite things...our great summer meals of late on the patio. So satisfying and the yard is so beautiful right now. Most especially the fresh greens from our garden, they are just so good this year.

A few plans for the rest of the week: vbs, vbs, vbs and vbs.

My favorite photo today: the yard in June

Tomorrow: I hope to have Gracie's pj's complete to show off.

Have a fabulous summers day!
