For Today June 3, 2014
I am thinking... it's wonderful to begin summer vacation!
I am thankful... for encouraging friends.
In the kitchen... it's Taco Tuesday!
I am wearing... nothing real exciting. A red Coca~Cola t-shirt and casual shorts.
I am creating... a list of possible snacks for the women at the Dorcas House. (When we host the retreat, my assignment is snacks.)
I am going... wherever I want, whenever I want to. :) It's our first week of summer break and I deliberately didn't plan anything so we could be spontaneous.
I am wondering... If I purchased the wrong kind of cucumber. While planting them I noticed they are bush cucumbers. Not sure what their growing habit is. Do they cling like a vine? Hmmm? I'll have to investigate as I have an old ladder I like them to climb.
I am finished reading... Her Mother's Hope by Francine Rivers and will start Her Daughter's Dream today.
I am hoping... to get some weeding done today.
I am looking forward to... beach days and the smell of sunscreen, bonfire nights and cool drinks after a hot summer day.
I am learning... all about patience and not having any expectations in relationships.
Around the house... a vase of beautiful Iris, a small pile of important papers to be dealt with and a growing 'to do' list.
I am pondering... my children and their extra curricular activities.
A favorite quote for today... "When peoples care for you and cry for you, they can straighten out your soul." ~ Langston Hughes
One of my favorite things... a quiet morning with a book and cup of coffee.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Go for a walk and bike ride with the kids, softball game and park visits. We might even look for a letterbox.
