FOR TODAY July 6, 2009...
Outside my window...Dark clouds and a stiff wind, cooling down after a very hot weekend - feels good to us in the Pacific Northwest who get hot when it's over 75* :0)
I am thinking...my brains are a bit scrambled this morning - that's why I'm doing this :0)
I am thankful...that my husband does not need surgery on his hand!! It's still very sore and swollen - he's having a hard time not using his hand (I think the doctor should have casted his hand - he was in a huge hurry when he saw Wayne)
From the learning rooms...reading
From the kitchen...making a batch of refried beans - also lots of salad - my lettuce is producing like crazy in my garden
I'm wearing...a ruffled skirt, tee shirt, flip flops
I am creating...crocheting bright, clean wash cloths for the year - easy, non-thinking handwork while I'm watching kiddies play in the pool
I am going...to the church softball game tonight - the kids love to cheer on their brother and daddy - although Daddy will be not be swinging a bat tonight - he'll be first base coach.
I am reading...a book by Eugina Price - one of my favorite authors - she writes Christian history novels about real people and places - her books are very accurate and very interesting. The one I am reading right now is about St. Simon's Island
I am hoping...The swelling goes down in Wayne's hand soon. The doctor was so grumpy and in such a rush when he saw Wayne last week - he just sent Wayne on his way with only a band aid and instructions to not use his hand! How does a father of 8 who works two jobs not use his right hand? The nurses he works with at the hospital gave him a splint (they were really surprised at the "treatment plan")
I am hearing...Esther's music box, the wind in the trees and kids playing.
Around the house...tidy up, laundry and if it doesn't rain - watering
One of my favorite things...the smell of rain!!!!
A few plans for the rest of the week: A trip to the park, get ready for daughter's birthday
A picture I am sharing... Hot, tired and ready for a nap (and so stinkin' cute - I could kiss her all day!!!)
My brains feel more organized already - time to get to work!!!!
