FOR TODAY April 21, 2014

Outside my window... the sun is setting on a beautiful day, the kids are playing in the backyard and I can hear the call of a Redwing blackbird.

I am thinking... of the garden and the work that needs be done to it as the growing season begins.

I am thankful... for our playset that we built more than eight years ago.  It was nothing fancy, purchased as a kit from a big box store, but has provided the kids with hours and hours of outdoor fun.

In the kitchen... I just finished cleaning up after our steak dinner and am now in the kitchen enjoying a few moments to myself.

I am wearing... sweatpants, tank top, fleece pull-over, polka dot socks and a ponytail.  Not exactly an outfit to go anywhere, but the day is almost done and I'm winding down for bed already.

I am creating... a small list of things to do to prepare the garden for a fruitful growing season.

I am going... to the salon on Wednesday.  Wondering if I should do something drastic or play it safe?  Maybe I'll leave it in Jessica's capable hands.

I am wondering... if there has been a more enjoyable team on The Amazing Race than Flight Time and Big Easy.  My husband and I enjoy watching The Amazing Race and were sad to see them go last night.  Such great role models for our boys! 

I am reading... hmmm, good question.  I have about 6 books that I'm currently reading, however, I can't seem to settle on just one to finish right now and it's causing a case of confusion in my brain.

I am hoping... I never stop learning and growing in mind, body and spirit.

I am looking forward to... Mason's bedtime!  He has been feeling under the weather lately and is unusually cranky.  Looking forward to peeking in on his sleeping face tonight.

I am learning... how bacon is made.
Around the house... washing machine and dryer are busy, the dining room table is full of books and papers from a busy school day and the dog is outside enjoying the spring evening.

I am pondering... what these days must have been like for Jesus' disciples and those that loved Him after Jesus rose from the dead and was among them.  I get goosebumps just imagining it.

One of my favorite things... eavesdropping on my children's imaginative play.  You can learn a lot about what's on their mind this way!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Awana, Royal Rangers, haircut appointment, library visit, play in the garden, host small group and coffee with a friend.

A peek into my day...

  1. I don't want to know how bacon is made. I just want to go to the store and buy it. If I had to kill my own meat (like on a farm) I'd be a vegetarian!!!
