For today...

Outside my window...beautiful, sunny skies ~ temps in the 30's
I am thinking...about Shelby, Marie, & Gregg

I am thankful for...prayer

From the kitchen...baked hamburgers, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans ~ one of Greg's favorite meals
I am wearing...khaki skirt, red knit shirt, slip on tennies

I am creating...Psalm 23 cross stitch, finished large center square ~ now onto the smaller squares all around it.
I am going...to keep seeking the Lord's wisdom & guidance

I am reading...finished 2Kings yesterday  ~ now reading 1 Chronicles
Also reading about gardening ~ specifically herbs

I am praying...for Shelby's dr. appt. today ~ she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis yesterday and there could be more going on.  (Shelby is the friend that went to Honduras with us last year and she is my friend Marie's "Just Call me Rie's" daughter)

From the schoolroom...biology worksheets on Respiration, Algebra, Spanish, Language, Reading, Scripture Memorization, Bible Drill Practice, crafts
I am hearing...cars driving, children talking, fingers typing

Around the house...crafting, puppies playing, some kitchen remodeling (took out the old stove & microwave ~ not to make that space into a cabinet), planning garden, discussing the future
One of my favorite things...talks with my children

A few plans for the rest of the week...Bible Study, movie night at church, Sunday School party at our house

Pictures to Share...
