FOR TODAY
Outside my window… clear, sunny skies, a steady breeze, approximately 80 F. Why exactly am I still in the house? Oh, yeah – the kids are outside playing and being loud!
I am thinking… it is going to be long summer break – and it hasn’t even started yet. I love my kids, but I will miss my solitude.
I am thankful for… a great neighborhood and a fenced in yard and neighbors that help keep an eye out for the kids. 
From the kitchen… I am struggling for an idea for dinner tonight. I have made menu plans complete with shopping lists and as always the shopping does not get done according to the lists so I am left to wing it. Again.
I am wearing… a comfortable pair of denim capris that were handed-down to me from my husband’s cousin. They’re starting to get a little loose… cool. These are paired with my oversize super comfortable baby blue 4th Degree Knights of Columbus polo my hubby bought for me at the last Exeplification we attended.
I am creating… scrapbook pages. In order to create scrapbook pages, we need to create memories as a family. My pages in the near future will be about our newest foster care addition to the family.
I am going… no where fast. LOL I am currently trapped in laundry purgatory, not sure everything will ever get clean.
I am reading… Unlikely Spiritual Heroes… yep, still. I miss placed it. Found it last night. Hope to finish it by next week.
I am hoping… our newest addition to the family adjusts well and the pleasantness continues. She came in and blended in so quickly!
I am hearing… the humm of the washer and dryer and they do their dance and muffled sounds of children screaming and laughing in the back yard.
Around the house… we are in transition. Adding a new member to the family is always a major undertaking. I think it’s worse when the children leave.
One of my favorite things… my iPhone. My calendar, my contacts, my music, basically everything I ever need in one handy little device! I even have an app for my prayer life!
A few plans for the rest of the week: Keep working on the laundry situation. Pack up the out of season clothing – donate the outgrown clothing.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing…
