FOR TODAY July 31, 2012

Outside my window... summer sun, sparrows and sun-kissed children.

I am thinking... that today is the last day of July and tomorrow starts the celebration of my birthday month!

I am thankful... for my vulnerabilities.

In the kitchen... there is no milk, eggs, bread, oatmeal or cheese.  Can you guess what some of my plans for the week will be?

I am wearing... a black tank top and very old gray shorts because today is a cleaning day and you need to be comfy to clean efficiently.  :)

I am creating... a grocery list.

I am going... to see what's growing in the garden today.

I am wondering... why two of my evergreens are dying.  Possibly from drought, but I've been watering them.  :(

I am reading... Captivating, The Uncommon Woman and historical fiction books on my Nook.

I am hoping... the laundry will clean and fold itself.

I am looking forward to... watching some olympic swimming today.

I am learning... to make lists to keep me on track throughout the day/week.

Around the house... kids "cleaning" in the basement.  That really means they are playing and putting something away every now and then.

I am pondering... using books to talk about values.

A favorite quote for today... "He who begins by loving Christianity better than truth will proceed by loving his own sect or church better than Christ, and end by loving himself better than all." ~ Coleridge

One of my favorite things... watching the sunrise (which I don't do very often because I also love to sleep).

A few plans for the rest of the week: grocery shopping, small group gathering, clean the house, make a library run and other fun adventures.

A peek through the lens...

  1. Your sweet boy is so cute! I have found it true in my home, too, that the laundry fairy just does not come around! I wish I knew more about why your evergreen is dying. You might check with your department of agriculture. I was surprised that they have people who will answer questions and assist with garden/nature type issues. I called about what to do because bugs/insects were eating away at my herbs and I was given some helpful suggestions.
    Praying with you all for rain.
