OUTSIDE MY WINDOW: It is cloudy, with snow capped mountains and brown below, with a hint of green of spring about to arrive. I think we are supposed to get snow again this weekend, but it doesn't look very threatening. I'm loving the almost 50 degree weather this week!
I AM THANKFUL FOR: Women that come to your rescue! I wrote about our last week on this blog here if you care to catch up. I really hope I can be of service to others like these women were to me.
FROM THE KITCHEN: Well..it's dry cereal right now. I think I might make a roast later today for dinner and left overs for Sunday lunch.
I AM READING: Prepare yourselves for this list: Sacajawea (only have 200 pages to go), The Scent of Jasmine (my fluff), Carol Tuttle's Remembering Wholeness, Donna Eden's Energy Medicine, and Inner Wisdome by Louise L. Hay.
I AM HEARING: Kids crunching on cereal, kids playing in the living room and an occasional bark from the backyard because a squirrel or bird dared enter the perimeter.
I AM CREATING: In the last two weeks I have made I Spy bags, recovered my grandmother's chairs, put together three small beds for three small boys, put together a dresser and a table and eight chairs. I have yet to put together another dresser and some toy shelves and recreate our play room.
I AM GOING: To pick up my van after repairs were done for the upper ball joints. I fear I may know more mechanical stuff about vans than I want to.
I AM HOPING: To get our house cleaned up, laundry caught up, and errands and bills organized for a week-long vacation to Texas to see my family later this month.
AROUND THE HOUSE: This is my new saying, "The house threw up on itself". So cleaning. And more cleaning. I have carpets to clean, rooms to organize and a garage to clean out. I've contemplated doing a garage sale, but that old saying, "use it up, fix it up, or wear it out" is honestly being done. None of it is very garage sale worthy, and most of these items usefulness is gone.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: Using the built in camera on my computer to take pictures of us kissing the kids. And Simeon's toothless grin.
A FEW PLANS FOR THE WEEK: We WILL finish my Lewis and Clark curriculum I made for the kids this year. We have one more week!! I told them if we finished the last lesson then we could take the vacation to Texas.
A PICTURE THOUGHT FOR YOU:
My kids don't seem to get kissing on the cheeks, so we always get planted right on the lips. At least this time, Simeon wasn't holding my head in place like he usually does. LOL! I must have finally learned to do it right in his book.
