FOR TODAY June 30, 2008

Outside My Window…  The weekend started out very hot; yesterday there were thunder storms and a bit of rain.  Today is supposed to be warm and nice.  The sky is hazy, the trees and grass still have a sheen from the rain and sew.
I am thinking… About the idea that I need to work on follow through more.  I am really good at planning – the follow through not so much.
I am thankful for… My Dad.  His birthday was yesterday and we had BBQ at his house.  So much fun.
From the kitchen… I need to make some bread.  This week  I will also be making cookies, lemon bars and a cake.
I am wearing…  Black skirts and a t-shirt.
I am creating… I am cutting out two aprons today to sew up.
I am going…  To work on my Summer Fling today.  This has been a great thing for me, I have been organizing the shelves in my house that don’t get attention otherwise.
I am reading…  Laundry, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell and It’s All Too Much. 
I am hoping…  That the forth is nice.
I am hearing… Cars this morning.  People heading out to drive into town to work
Around the house… I need to get to work deep cleaning the kitchen.
One of my favorite things… My jewlery box.  It folds in on itself like a puzzle box. 
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Sew some, we are going to do a short summer school unit on Independence day.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…

  1. Hi!
    It rained here a bit this weekend too. I really hope today stays nice so we can spend some time outside.
    Have a great Monday!!

  2. Thank you so much for your prayers for answers with Noah. I think he is somewhere on the Autism Spectrum but he has stumped all his therapist and doctors so far…we have gotten everything from severe mental retardation to autism and all things in between 🙂 I see that you have written a bit on Autism and I am looking forward to reading those posts!

  3. I am really good at planning too. 🙂 Do I need motivation? A batter plan? I need something! lol!!!

    Thank you for coming to my blog. 🙂

    I’ll have to come back when I have a little more time, I just got back from the doctor and now I have to play catch up. 🙂


  4. I am so good at planning!! 🙂 But the actual doing of the plan is another thing altogether! LOL!

    I’m going to check out the Summer Fling. I am determined to declutter this summer.

    Aprons must be pretty easy to sew, right? Do you make them for yourself, for others, or to sell?
