FOR TODAY : August 18, 2008
Thunder and lightening and a whole bunch of running around today.  

Outside My Window… A light shower, thunder and lightening.  A wonderful break from the oppressive heat we have been experiencing.
I am thinking…  Today I am starting the Holiday Grand Plan, tweaked for those of us who do Advent.  I will be posting on this later today.
I am thankful for…  My 16 year old who has been a really big help this summer.
From the kitchen… I have my coffee this morning.  If the weather stays cooler I will bake some break this afternoon. 
I am wearing… My PJs.  
I am creating…  A new website.
I am going…  To take my mother to have cataract surgery this morning.
I am reading…  A Mother’s Rule of Life. 
I am hoping…  That everything goes well with mom, that the weather stays cool and that the next few days go quickly.
I am hearing… Not the stupid crow.  It must not like thunder.   
Around the house…  I planted two new hanging baskets this weekend.  I am working on the front porch this week.  I miss my husband, he is traveling on business. 
One of my favorite things…  The smell of rain on hot dry ground.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Lots of cleaning and planting and getting ready for the end of summer.

Here is picture thought I am sharing…
