For Today...(February 9th)
Outside my window... The rain clouds are clearing away and the sun is peeking out. It smells so fresh and clean now that the rain has washed all the dust away.
I am thinking...That I'm not ready for Greg (oldest son) to leave. You may remember that he came home in August to go to school. Well, he has re-enlisted and is on his way to North Carolina tomorrow. All of you who live there, give him a big hug for me won't you? :)
I am thankful for... The wonderful 5 months that we had with Greg at home. Bobby (third son) especially enjoyed not being outnumbered by girls.
From the kitchen... I am about to put a roast in the crockpot (or I may do the other recipe where it cooks in the oven...haven't decided yet).
I am wearing...A big military mom t-shirt and jeans (for getting dirty while helping my soon to be sister-in-law today).
I am reading... Be Mature: Growing Up in Christ by Warren Wiersbe.
I am hoping... The cleaning spree with my sister-in-law to be doesn't take too long. I have lots of other things to get done today.
I am creating... More notecards with verses from James.
I am hearing...quiet (it sounds lovely).
Around the house... Lots of laundry to catch up on and helping Greg get packed.
One of my favorite things... A big Saturday morning breakfast with the whole family around the table.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Helping my soon to be sister-in-law clean my brothers house in preparation for her to move in. We are going to be cleaning under appliances and in cabinets today. I'm afraid of what we'll find. I can tell you that my brother has NEVER cleaned under his appliances. Ugh!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
Our new puppy. He is a 6 month old Border Collie. His name is Roper (we didn't name him, he was named by a cowboy who likes to rope).
