For Today June 3, 2014
Outside my window... birds are having a hard time landing on the feeders.  It's sunny and windy!

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.
