Outside my window... Bright Summer Sunshine
I am thinking... Does God allow the extremes, like this drought, so we will turn our attention to Him?
I am thankful... my mother-in-law, who happily transports the younger guys to the summer library program each week.
In the kitchen... breakfast dishes, the smell of freshly baked bread, and tomatoes ready salsa-making.
I am wearing... a comfy jersey knit skirt and a heather-colored top, and my well-worn apron, of course!
I am creating... a quilt for a niece's wedding gift, crocheted baby blankets for future grandbabies and crochet/beaded candle toppers for a friend.
I am going... wherever the Lord leads. First, to the stove to preserve some of the bounty of our garden. And then once the work is done, a roadtrip south will be just the thing.
I am wondering... why do some have so much energy and get so much done, while I do not.
I am reading... Galatians; 28 Days to Hope for Your Home; Grace for the Good Girl; Smooth and Easy Days
I am hoping... rain will return soon.
I am looking forward to... the return of our daughter and her family, and the chance to have ALL my children together in the same place at the same time again.
I am learning... yes, always learning, to stay out of the way and allow my children to learn some of life's lessons on their own.
Around the house... it is very quiet here (thank you Grandma, for taking the kids this morning!) and so I have time to ponder and sing and pray while mopping up spilled lemonade.
I am pondering... will I ever truly be ready for my chick-a-dees to fly the coup? It gets easier, but is still a hard thing.
One of my favorite things... the imagination of my 6-year old, who just this morning dressed a 2 1/2 foot tall dinosaur in cowboy boots and a wrist watch to keep guard over the snack bin.
A few plans for the rest of the week: salsa-making, list-making, shopping trip, packing
A peek into my day... several phone calls to make, garden produce to put up, water the garden (again!), Bible Study tonight
