#21 for 2010
Hosted by Peggy at The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window ... the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and it is already HOT!

I am hearing ... blog music and the sound of my tpying.

I am going ... nowhere today, Ronnie has my van since the air conditioner in his truck isn't working.

I am wearing ... blue jean capris and a gray Bass Pro Shops t-shirt.

I am noticing that ... I haven't done a daybook in several weeks.

I am thinking ... about what needs to be done this week, and realizing that I probably won't get it all done.

I am hoping ... to get a little more caught up on housework today.

I am reading ... a couple of "just for fun" novels and my Spurgeon devotional trying to get some direction for what I will share with the ladies tomorrow night.

I am will be creating ... a pillowcase dress with LB at Keeper's tomorrow.  The plan is to donate the dresses to Little Dresses for Africa.  I also think that, depending on how hard they are to make, it might be something we could include in Shoeboxes.  We'll have to see, though.

On my mind ... Mama getting chemo today and a friend whose husband is very ill.

I am remembering ... that our VBS is only a few weeks away! 

Counting my blessings ... fresh veggies to can, Vacation Bible School, watching the kids play with their cousins, Ronnie helping Daddy in the garden, leftovers, kids who like cereal for supper, fresh new days - with no mistakes.

Words that I am pondering ... "In order to see great things, we must be passionate about the things of God."

From the learning rooms ... continuing our summer session, mostly doing math and grammer/phonics, with a good bit of reading thrown in.

From the kitchen ... a great big mess!  I'll be tackling it first in my quest to catch up on housework.  Once I find the kitchen, I plan to bake some chicken and cook veggies for lunch.

Around the house ... you don't want to know!

A few plans for the rest of the week ... the big kids are back in VBS this week at my parents' church, we have Keepers tomorrow and possibly a play date on Thursday, and a wedding on Saturday.

One of my favorite things ... the popping sound of jars sealing.

A picture to share with you ... I love pictures of my kids sleeping ... this is D, inside my pajama pants.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Cool idea about using them for shoeboxes. This is doable! These dresses are really easy and turn out so cute! Hope your day goes well! See you tomorrow!

Love the photo! HOT weather sounds like a good thing at the moment - it's so cold I can barely feel my fingertips to type properly...
Have a wonderful week.

I love that pic. And it's quite alright to not get it all done. Believe me -- I have learned that the world won't end because there wasn't enough time. As my 84-year-old great aunt told me yesterday (the HARDEST working woman I have EVER known), "you do what you can and leave the rest for tomorrow..."
