For Today August 11, 2016
Looking out my window... beautiful refreshing rain is falling on the parched ground!
I am thinking... if you wait until you think you are ready to do something challenging, you'll never do it.
I am thankful... for my thoughtful husband who ordered a birthday cake for me to be frosted in my favorite color, turquoise.
One of my favorite things... the end of a workout!
I am wearing... tank top, shorts and bare feet. It's h.o.t and humid.
I am creating... a shopping list.
I read... Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst for a summer study I do with a few friends. It was fabulous! I highly recommend it.
I am hoping... to clean the wood floors on my hands and knees today. Ugh, it's one of my least favorite chores but so worth it when I'm finished.
I am learning... that a minority of jelly belly candy in a Bean Boozled box are actually tasty. The others have flavors such as Stinky Socks, Rotten Egg, Moldy Cheese and Canned Dog Food. :0
In my kitchen... Carnitas in the crock pot and a giant cucumber we found hiding in the garden.
It's huge, right?!
In the school room... planning has begun. Went to the co-op planning meeting earlier in the week and the boys have already been reading some books for the new school year. Shhh, they don't know they're for school. I like to be sneaky that way. Just leave one or two lying around to peek their interest. I love it when a plan comes together.
In my garden... cucumbers and tomatoes. The zucchini are not doing well. I planted them in a new spot this year and they don't seem happy.
A moment from my day...
