Outside my window…it’s sunny and beautiful. It may be extremely hot here in Texas but it’s almost always sunny and beautiful.
I am thinking…Daxson and I have almost been married 7 years (come this Sunday) but that’s nothing compared to the 38 years my parents have been married. Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad…here’s to many more!
I am thankful for…the sacrament of marriage. Feeling disillusioned about marriage? Read Holly Pierlot’s article on Happily Ever After. (In fact, if you haven’t already, read Holly Pierlot’s book A Mother’s Rule of Life…perhaps, like me, you’ll find it a welcome compass in a chaotic world.)
From the learning rooms…just finished Blueberries for Sal…amazing how many things we can think of to drop into a bucket so we can hear Kurplank! Kurplink! Kurplunk!
From the kitchen…this afternoon, when Joseph wakes up from his nap, we’re planning to make homemade applesauce…some things in life just aren’t the same when you buy them.
I am wearing…jean shorts and a coral colored t-shirt.
I am creating…a list of books to look for next time I go to Half Price Books.
I am praying…for Cathy and the healing she needs.
I am remembering…how last night when I crawled into bed with Joseph and William, I heard Joseph mumbling in his sleep. I looked over at him and he was signing in his sleep. Isn’t that extraordinary?
I am hoping…that I am setting a good example for my children. Actions truly do speak louder than words and I know I have so much room to grow.
I am hearing…the beef sizzle on the stovetop. Mom’s making The Barefoot Contessa’s homemade beef stew and it smells delicious!
One of my favorite things…staying up late with Mom to watch shows like Clean House or What Not to Wear.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I think we’re going to try to visit the Wildflower Gardens tomorrow…wildflowers in Texas this time of year? Remarkable.
Here is picture I thought worth sharing…
