Outside my window...I am looking at a BEAUTIFUL but very warm (even for California) day… and watching the sweet little old (he is 87) man across the street working in his flower bed..he puts me to shame as busy as he always is.
I am thinking...that I hope this is the last heat wave we have until next summer…It is 100 degrees again today and I am longing for some cooler days.
I am thankful for..soo much… but in particular today for the LONG conversation I had this morning with my daughter on the phone.
From the kitchen...I am cooking chicken in the crock pot…too hot for the oven = )
I am wearing...white Capri pants and a pink short sleeve top
I am creating...I am working on embroidering some new kitchen towels. Haven’t done this in such a long time. I had forgotten how much I enjoy it.
I am going...I went nowhere today. I did all my laundry and cleaned out my pantry and re-organized it. You might wonder why that needed to be done when I have only lived here 4 months, haha…I guess I am just kind of messy. No kids to blame anymore.
I am reading...An old book of Karen Kingsbury that I somehow missed in the past.
I am hoping...that my mom continues to improve as much as she has.
I am hearing...the whir of the dishwasher and washing machine and dryer. I am soo grateful for all of these appliances. As much as I love the series of Little House on the Prairie, can you imagine the work of those days?
Around the house... Still enjoying my new house and today I am smelling the chicken in the crock pot and the new Fall candle that I bought yesterday…sooo yummy.
One of my favorite things...lunch with my girlfriends. Did that yesterday and had such a good time.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Tomorrow is already Friday so guess I will tell what our week-end plans are. Friday night will see us having dinner with my parents and then playing a little cards. Her doc said that card playing was EXCELLENT therapy for her which works well as we all enjoy it. Sat. we will probably begin our search for a new car (unfortunately it is time) and late Sat. afternoon I am planning on spending time with my granddaughter Annabel. Sun will be service here in the morning and then going on down to San Diego to spend the afternoon with my grandkids and then to hear my son teach.
Here's a picture to enjoy...
I just found this pic of Jess & Mel at Jessie's bachlorette party last August on Jessi'e facebook page. I haven't seen any pics of this as Mel brilliantly forgot her camera, haha. The girls look soo pretty, but I just can't believe they are already 24 years old. Where did the time go??
Well, guess that's it for now...I tried to download my pictures from my computer to this post of my sweeties in their costumes, but for SOME reason they were ALL coming out sideways. I am not sure why as I have them turned correctly of course in the picture album thing on my computer. I have occasionally had the problem in the past, but not with ALL of the pics...I am surprised this one worked. Anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong?
I have NO idea why the print went small and I can't seem to correct that either no matter what I do...guess it is just one of those days....Hope you all have a wonderful week-end.
