Outside my window: Overcast skies, fog over the mountains, maybe some rain soon. Hopefully not enough to deter our plans for the day.
I am hearing: The shower running, the cooling system circulating, the kettle starting to boil.
I am pondering: I'm actually trying not to ponder anything, but it's just inevitable, so I am pondering various things about the children -- school projects, behaviors, etc.
I am praying: for my parents who are watching all seven children for us this week. THEY are going to need a vacation next week!
I am thankful for: quality time away with my husband, time to rest and rejuvenate (I was needing that really badly), a company that encourages spouses to come along on conference trips.
I am wearing: my favorite cotton nightgown.
I am going: as long as it doesn't rain Huntington Gardens. We've been there before and it's so beautiful!
I am reading: I brought five books with me. The two I am reading at the moment are: Beauty Rising by Mark W. Sasse and Volleyball Steps to Success by Bonnie Kenny and Cindy Gregory.
I am looking forward to: longs walks, sleeping, reading, eating food I didn't have to make, drinking my coffee hot.
In the kitchen: I wrote out a menu plan (which come to think of it, I don't think I layed it out on the counter with the other things. Mom, it's in the drawer where the note paper is.)
I am creating: nothing this week.
One of my favorite things: alone time with my husband.
Wise words: Things of quality have no fear of time.
A picture thought I am sharing:
Well, it's going to have to wait. We didn't bring the card reader for the camera. Bummer!
