This afternoon I've been working in the garden and so came in to rest under the fan and have a glass of water. While I might want to take a quick nap, today I'm going to try something new. I'm linking up with Peggy at The Simple Woman's Daybook.
Outside my window: It's warm, at least ten degrees warmer than usual.
I am thinking: I want to finish weeding and mulching the rose bed along the back of the house. I'm already dirty and a bit scratched up I might as well finish.
I am thankful: For my family, even though today and this week we are scattered around the world, we are just a phone call away from each other.
In the kitchen: The sink is clean! The TV remote is on the counter - in a couple of hours my husband will be looking for that.
I am wearing: My favorite blue Texas Rangers t-shirt, grayish capris, old gray tennis shoes and dirt. Sunscreen and my favorite perfume, Sensuous. I don't know, it's just a habit to put on perfume every morning.
I am creating: A more orderly home, last week we finished the shelves in the linen closet (before it just had a shelf and a rod for hanging clothes). It's the only linen closet in the house. I'm taking forever to put things on the shelves. It's a relief to have a place to keep extra linens and paper products (and all my husbands baseball caps!).
I am going: To bed early tonight. This whole time change thing wears me out.
I am wondering: If there is a snake under the terra cotta bunny in my garden - there was one last spring...
I am reading: not so big remodeling (Tailoring Your Home for the Way You Really Live) by Sarah Susanka and Marc Vassallo.
I am hoping: I'm reading the above book because I hope to make a few changes in our kitchen - take down a wall, move the fridge... simple stuff.
I am looking forward to: my shower.
I am learning: I can not do it all. I never could. I guess I used to think God was on vacation and I was in charge. I don't have to be the boss...
Around the house: I really, really need to sweep.
I am pondering: How can I make this world a better place? - I'll have to get back to you on this.
A favorite quote for today: "We've been through a lot together - most of it was your fault." Anonymous (wish I could thank whoever said it, makes me laugh every time I think about it.)
One of my favorite things: Having a meal with friends.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Finish weeding and mulching roses, plant squash, buy coffee filters.
