FOR TODAY August 14,2012

Outside my window... birds are singing and rejoicing over this beautiful summer morning with not a cloud in the sky.

I am thinking... about my oldest friend because it is her 40th birthday today.  Happy Birthday Jess!

I am thankful... for bananas!  Without them I wouldn't be able to make delicious smoothies or scrumptious banana bread.

In the kitchen... freshly baked bread just out of the bread machine. Yummo!

I am wearing... green shorts and a black tank top.

I am creating... a few thank you cards.

I am going... outside to read one of the many books I've downloaded to my e-reader just after I write this post.

I am wondering... if I could ever do a Big Year?  It would be tons of fun.

I am reading... Academic Conversations by Jeff Zwiers and Marie Crawford.

I am hoping... our bank will allow us to refinance our home mortgage loan.

I am looking forward to... purchasing a new pair of running shoes.

I am learning...

Around the house...
not a creature is stirring, not even the dog.

I am pondering... where life will take me in the years to come.

A favorite quote for today... " Don't cry because it's over.  Smile because it happened." ~ Dr. Seuss

One of my favorite things... sitting outside on a beautiful summer morning.

A few plans for the rest of the week: playdates, book study, run, grocery shopping, and a baptism.

A peek into my day...
You can see a hot air balloon floating over our house on many a calm evening.

  1. I'm thankful for bananas too, because I use them in smoothies every day. I can't get enough!

    I like the quote by Dr. Seuss. Very insightful.
