FOR TODAY, Monday July 6th, 2009…

Outside my window… It is windy and overcast. The birds are having trouble flying

I am thinking… Of a grocery list

I am thankful for… A grandmother who wants to take my daughter to London for a week. What an experience 🙂

From the kitchen…Soya butter chicken, rice and a salad for dinner

I am wearing… A white and pink appliqued sweatshirt, denim skirt and tennis socks

I am creating … I haven’t been very crafty or creative lately

I am going…To the store for ingredients for dinner

I am reading… Anne of Green Gables – again

I am hoping… For a yes to a mortgage. We found the cutest little house

I am hearing… the beeping of the phone being dialed

Around the house… Lots of laundry and I must get the potted  sweet william planted along my back fence

One of my favorite things… The smell of summer rain

A few plans for the rest of the week: Helping out at my church’s VBS

Here is picture thought I am sharing…

A rainbow view from our front window. Taken last summer

For Today… June 29th, 2009

Outside my window… We moved the computer to my daughter’s old room so all I see from this window is the maple tree, a bit of garage roof  and the sky. it is sunny so the tree is very prettily dappled right now

I am thinking… Of how and where I want to arrange the furniture, since the desk is no longer in the living room

I am thankful for… My husband’s patience and understanding as I shuffle the rooms about and mourn my daughter’s absence. He doesn’t do well with chaos or tears. Poor man, it is a double whammy

I am hearing… FBN Radio

From the kitchen… Pepper steak with rice and salad for dinner and Upside down Rhubarb Cake from Mennonite Girls Can Cook

I am wearing… A light denim skirt, a white sleeveless shirt underneath a white cap sleeved blouse with yellow blue and green pin stripes and my flipflops

I am creating… A mess of furniture 🙂

I am going… To my inlaw’s for coffee

I am reading… Through the Book of Psalms. 78 was the last one I read

I am hoping…To get my house organized by tomorrow

I am praying… For many things, mostly about my friends and family

Around the house… It is quiet and different with Christina gone. 😦

One of my favorite things… Ice cream cones that we bought more of yesterday 🙂

A few plans for the rest of the week: Once the house is set up I want to start on my Christmas crafting; I have several projects I need to begin on. Weeding the garden is on my list too.

Here is picture thought I am sharing…

This is an old picture of Christina, with my mom. She was 13 here. She took the camera with her when she left so I have no new pictures until we go to Vancouver in July and I can buy a camera of my own at Best Buy.
