FOR TODAY April 22,2013
Outside my window... I see robins, cedar waxwings and red winged blackbirds out and about.
I am thinking... about my beautiful daughter who turns six this weekend.
I am thankful... for the opportunity to stay at home with my children and the freedom to school them at home.
In the kitchen... homemade lotion.
I am wearing... a red t-shirt, black fleece jacket and black pants.
I am creating... gifts for five wonderful women.
I am going... to enjoy a specialty coffee this morning.
I am wondering... what pictures to use for a new home decor project I'm working on.
I am reading... Home Improvement: Eight Tools for Effective Parenting by Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller
I am hoping... to see the sunshine more and more with each passing day. So far the forecast is looking pretty gray.
I am looking forward to... summer vacation and relaxation!!
I am learning... new ways to parent effectively.
Around the house... a sleeping dog, children with full tummies, raindrops on windows and a mama on the computer.
I am pondering... as we celebrate Earth day, what did the earth look like after God first created it and how different the earth may be today.
A favorite quote for today... "... How can one know color in perpetual green, and what good is warmth without cold to give it sweetness?" ~John Steinbeck
One of my favorite things... an appointment free day.
A few plans for the rest of the week: finish lesson plans for the school year, continue the spring cleaning/cleanout that we began this weekend and enjoy fellowship with friends throughout the week.
