FOR TODAY April 2, 2012

Outside my window... the sun is shining and birds are singing and two ducks are waddling through the backyard.

I am thinking... about April Fool's day and how the usually predictable me pulled one over on my neighbor.

I am thankful... for the illness that is going through the house right now.  Makes me extra thankful for healthy children.

In the kitchen... box cereal for breakfast, pb&j for lunch and a bemused look for dinner.

I am wearing... my jammies.  I will eventually change into jeans and a long sleeved shirt.

I am creating... that same bemused look that I had for dinner is being inserted here too.

I am going... to see about taking Mr. M in to the doctor this morning.  I can hear another episode of croup invading his airways.

I am wondering... how big our little puppy is going to get.  He is almost as big as predicted and is only 5 months old.

I am reading... Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist.

I am hoping... to get together with my dear friend today or tomorrow.

I am looking forward to... knowing if our addition is going to be within budget.  Contractor is coming tonight to give us an itemized proposal.

I am learning... to be love in action.

Around the house... I can hear Mr. M talking in his room, M is watching 'Mike the Knight' on tv, Milo is watching the activity in the front yard, the boys might still be sleeping and I'm typing away.

I am pondering... how to spend our spring break.

A favorite quote for today... "Don't do once, what you don't want to do twice." ~ Grandma Lu

One of my favorite things... the after part of cleaning out the garage.

A few plans for the rest of the week: oh boy, spring break week:  we might bowl today if it fits into our schedule, make a run to the library today or tomorrow, go to Patrick's grandma's funeral, enjoy a trip up north and celebrate Easter! 

A peek through the lens...
Enjoying the northwoods at one of our favorite spots.

  1. That's a wise saying from your Grandma Lu!

    I forgot all about April Fool's Day! Maybe next year, I can "fool" somebody ...

    I hope your contractor's proposal is under budget. It is always so exciting to add on!
