Outside my window...sunny, muggy, hot, humid, oppressive, uncomfortable ~ typical July day for Mississippi!
I am thinking...about how everyone wants to complicate things
I am thankful for...a husband who listens & love me
From the kitchen...baked hamburgers, mashed potatoes & gravy, vegetables
I am wearing...haven't gotten dressed yet
I am creating...3 flower girl dresses for my dear daughters wedding, also working on projects to enter n the fair (2 months till everything gets turned in!), starting on gifts for the holiday season also
I am going...to continue with all my wedding plans
I am reading...book 4 of the Freedoms Holy Light Series, my Bible, Hope Chest Legacy by Rebekah Wilson
I am praying...for lots and lots ~ family relationships, the Lords will, my children, my nephew Billy (on a mission trip in Haiti), my daughters wedding, my husband, finances, discernment
I am hearing...doors open & close, cars driving
From the schoolroom...nothing yet ~ we start our 16th year of homeschooling on Aug.1, then we will take a week long wedding break the last week in Sept. Everything is purchased. We've been able to take advantage of some back to school sales for spiral notebooks, paper folders, etc.
Around the house... Will is cleaning out desk drawers, Katie is cleaning out drawers and working on her quilt, Amy is starting to handquilt her Log Cabin quilt, Greg is back at work, I am doing whatever necessary to keep everything around here progressing & working in my own crafting time! We've got some projects to finish around here before the end of Sept. and need to prioritize them. The tomato plants are thriving and the corn is taller than the fence. I have 1 squash plant that survived (the heat and the puppies) and its huge. We are praying for many more cucumbers to made relish and dill pickles.
One of my favorite things...a budget (gasp, I can't believe I just publically said that) ~ I really didn't like it for a while, but I have to admit the advantages of it and the benefits derived from it. I've been on a cash system for misc., crafts, and clothing and I do like it better than using the c. card. Last week all was bought on the card and even though I was instructed to get as much wedding stuff accomplished as I could, it still made me nervous to not be able to discuss the purchases with Greg (he was on a mission trip to Haiti). I had his budget and tried to keep careful track of everything but I like cash better.
A few plans for the rest of the week...swim party at our house tomorrow night for church youth group, organizing the wedding stuff, making lots of lists, my date morning with Greg this weekend (its been forever...3 weeks!)
A picture to share.....
