FOR TODAY... February 22nd, 2010

Outside my window... is a gooey muddy mess. It rained this morning and since our big dog has trampled all the grass in the backyard, it instantly turns to mud when it rains. Too bad my desk isn't facing the front yard. It's beautifully covered in grass, flowers, English Ivy, and birds!

I am hearing... Super Why on the tv.

I am thinking... that I'm glad PBS is still on tv. There isn't much out there on tv anymore that's appropriate for my children to watch.

From the learning rooms... Another week of schoolwork. I'm so glad we are not behind like we were this time last year. The kids have been looking forward to today, they get to raid the treasure chest. For every test they get an A on, they get to pick one small thing. For every 100% they receive on a test, they get to pick out one big thing. I have pencils, erasers, matchbox cars, balloons, all kinds of goodies in there.

I am thankful for... my home. When you are stuck in it, and unable to go anywhere, it's really nice to be in such a wonderful and comfortable home!

I am wearing... sticking with the Sisterhood of the Lingering Pajamas for a while today!

I am going... NOWHERE, obviously!

I am currently reading... I'm still reading Created To Be His Help Meet. I can't take it back to the library, so I'm going to have to just pay the overdue fees whenever my husband has a chance to get it back, on his way to or from work.

On my mind... my dear hubby. He's doing good so far with all this stress, but I can tell that it's really starting to get to him. He's not of those, "I'll do my best, and if that isn't good enough, oh well" kind of guys. He takes providing for us very seriously and is really upset if he feels he's not doing a good enough job. This vehicle thing is very tough for him. I just keep praying.

One of my favorite things... a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day.

Pondering these words... I have a new place at the top of my blog where I am putting weekly quotes. These are the words that I ponder throughout the week!

From the kitchen... when I walk through it, I close my eyes. Does that tell you anything? To my defense, I was outside all weekend helping my husband work on vehicles and build a shop!

I am hoping... to have a great productive day!

Around the house... soooo much to do since I've been outside with hubby for so many days. Laundry and dishes need to be a priority, but I hope to help the girls with their rooms today too. The boys need to clean the bathrooms today.

From my picture journal...


  1. I love the layout of this post!! Very creative.....now onto your most recent post :)

  2. Thank you! It takes soooo much longer, but it looks so pretty...so I keep doing it!

  3. Being thankful for your home is awesome! So many are loosing their homes and wonder where they will live tomorrow - I hate this economy right now! Let us pray for better days to come...
