Outside my Window... it's partly cloudy (or is that smoke?) and cool for the moment. The deer are running around like crazy on our back hill, and my window is open, so I can hear all the birds chirping! We are expecting some more thunderstorms this afternoon, which is fine, as long as they leave my power alone this time, and don't start any fires--at least here! :)
I am thinking...about how much work it is to have a yard sale!! We had our first one ever on Saturday, and even though we live a little ways from town, we still had some people show up, even though the "city people" took down most of our signs... Now why would they do that?!
I am thankful for... the fact that Regina is moving. Do you know that she actually had the nerve to go through the pictures on my camera and delete all the ones I took of her? Argh!!
Actually, I am still really going to miss her and her family... Regina, you guys CAN'T move!!!! :(
From the kitchen... lots of leftover brownies and cookies from the boys snack and drink stand that they set up at our yard sale.
I am creating... or trying to create a plan for this coming school year.
I am going...to take the boys to their swimming lessons this morning.
I am wearing...my jammies. (I really should be getting ready to go!)
I am reading... Education Is. The free E-book that Elizabeth Foss recommended! Then, I hope to catch up on all of Elizabeth's posts discussing the book.
**Oh! I just clicked over to Elizabeth's blog to get her link, and noticed her Daybook for today! She is actually reading the book I have been reading the last couple weeks!! I am so glad you are enjoying it Elizabeth! I have just about finished my copy, and love love love it!! Archbishop Fulton Sheen really has a way of writing that totally captures your attention. I am so glad that they are looking into his Cause for Beatification and Canonization! He was such a holy and inspiring man.
I am hoping.... to use my new ice cream maker to try and make my own Coconut Bliss. It is delicious, but way too expensive to buy often! So... I am going to make my own!
I am hearing...the wash machine spinning and my hubby getting ready to leave for work. All my kids are still sleeping!
Around the house...there is tons of laundry to get caught up on (The kids daily swimming lessons always make me fall way behind.). There is also lots of leftover yard sale items that need to be boxed up and donated.
One of my favorite things...is getting together with friends! On Thursday we had these friends over to celebrate a special girls birthday! Then, yesterday, we were invited over to these friends home after Mass (along with these friends--who are visiting for the month!) and stayed all day... I hope we didn't overstay our welcome, but we had a great time, and got to meet our soon-to-be newest Goddaughter!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Swimming lessons Mon-Wed; Captain's Auditory Processing class Tues-Thurs; and then Mass & Benediction on Friday in addition to any and all errands that need to be done while in town. I also hope to get my house back in order... It sort of fell apart this weekend with everything we were doing. It looks like it might be another busy week!
