daybook - birthday edition

#13 for 2010
hosted by Peggy @

Outside my window ... I am seeing another lovely spring morning and freshly cut grass ... life is good!

I am wearing ... tan capris and a lime green shirt.

I am hearing ... the washer and dryer running and my blog music.

I am going ... to do our normal Tuesday activities ... speech , dance and baseball practice.

I am thinking ... about what I need to get done before my parents come for supper on Thursday night.

I am hoping ... for good gardening weather.

I am reading ... sometimes I just hate this prompt ... do blogs count?  Because I've read some good ones lately.

I am creating ... plans for our summer session of school.

On my mind ... a decision I made that I hope was the right one.

I am remembering ... that on this day, 27 years ago, I was baptized.

Counting my blessings ... another year of life, good times on Saturday with my family, a wonderful Resurrection Sunday with my church family, the chance to work in the garden with my Daddy and see him teaching LB and JW about what we were planting, my sweet husband who sometimes does things he'd rather not do just so that I don't have to do them.

Words that I am pondering ... Psalm 107 ... you'll have to look up the whole chapter for yourself, but these verses have been speaking volumes to me lately ... especially the first part of verse 2.  "Let the redeemed of the LORD say so ..."

From the learning rooms ... today, the kids need to log the progress with their brittle star experiment and do their reports for Book-It! tomorrow.  We need to get busy on the reading for co-op as well.  I must admit that I am looking forward to finishing this year's co-op at the end of the month!  The classes have been great, but I am ready for a change of pace.

From the kitchen ... I don't think I should have to make this decision on my birthday!

Around the house ... LAUNDRY!

A few plans for the rest of the week ... (drum roll please) New Orleans this weekend!  I am so excited to get out of town, even if it is only for a day ... the kids are staying with my parents and we are heading south with our friends Brad and Amy to see a basketball game!  I can't wait!

One of my favorite things ... playing games (board or card) with my family.

A picture to share with you ... promises of things to come ... this little tomato plant may look sad now, but I am expecting big things from it and all its little friends we planted in Daddy's garden yesterday.

Thanks for visiting ...
I hope you have a wonderful week!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday dear Jennifer, Happy Birthday to you (that was a singing blog-o-gram)! Many, many years ago I instituted no work on birthdays! Have fun, play a game, eat ice cream, whatever! Hope you have a great day!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope the birthday fairy (aka your husband or a wonderful family member or friend) swoops in and takes dinner out of your hands tonight... :)

Hi, Jennifer!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! What a lovely day to have a birthday on. I also have an April birthday, but later in the month.

Hope you have a great time in New Orleans...sounds like fun!

I agree with one of the other commenters who said she had a "no work on your birthday" policy. Sounds good to me! ;) Maybe your Hubbie will take you out for dinner...

Well, Happy Birthday to you! I hope it has been a most special day for you. And, going to New Orleans, what a place to visit! Since I live at the other end of the state, we do occasionally make it down there. You'll enjoy some good food for sure. Blessings for a wonderful week!
