Outside my window…the sun is shining, and the tree leaves are barely moving in the slight breeze.
I am thinking…there is a lot to do this week.
I am thankful for…the sacrifices made by U.S. military families. Ashleigh’s husband just returned home safe and sound, but many soldiers don’t. I think it’s very important to let these folks know that we appreciate them.
From the kitchen…I need to try a new recipe. Any ideas? 🙂
I am wearing…a denim skirt, bright orange blouse, and brown sandals.
I am creating…a new cross stitch sampler.
I am reading…in my Bible: Hebrews; just for fun: a couple of books on caring for the home.
I am hoping…that an anticipated package arrives in the mail today.
I am hearing…uplifting gospel music on our church’s radio station.
Around the house…just a bit of post-weekend tidying. Thankfully I’ve been staying caught up with the weekly chores. As always, laundry awaits.
One of my favorite things…soft sheets.
A few plans for the rest of the week…unpack another box or two, list some books for sale, visit the chiropractor, visit with friends, go to storytime at the the library, take a trip to a local theme park, and just enjoy life with the kids the last few days before school starts back.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…
This is a view of our backyard. We had to leave the Koi pond behind in Georgia, but this pretty pond has some big fish, gigantic turtles, and even a Florida gator. Don’t worry, we’ve given the kids a long lecture about heading down to the water without a grownup. 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful week! If you would like to read more Daybook entries head over to The Simple Woman.
THat is one awesome backyard!!!
I could do without the gators though.
God has blessed..HE is SO GOOD!!
ENjoy the rest of summer.
What a beautiful picture! And I love soft sheets too! : )
Thank you for posting about John’s homecoming…and the fact that not all Marines and soldiers come home. While we rejoice that “our” Marine came home, it was ever-present in our hearts that day, that our dear brother in the Lord, Timothy Watkins (our pastor’s son) did not–he was killed in action in 2003. It’s so important that in the midst of our celebrating, we remember those families who’s loved one paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Blessings to you! : )
Ah yes, I do remember as a child living in Homestead all the warning to look for aligators and water moccasins.
I enjoy these posts, as they leave me with a restful feeling. I’m also reading several homemaking/keeping books this week.
Have a wonderful week, and what a lovely view you have in your backyard.
What a wonderful pond, Mrs. C! I hope you are having a great week!
