For Today...June 22nd, 2010

Outside my window~ the heat is beginning to build up. Summers here are so hot and humid. That's great for hubby's business...not so great for me and outdoor time. I have to water plants early in the morning, or late at night. All shopping really needs to be done before 11:00am even earlier if possible. Kansas was the same way though. I miss Colorado ever summer!

I am thinking~ of how I'm ready to be well again. The bad colds really knock me out, day and night.

From the learning rooms~ just summer state history and reading!

I am going~ to make some calls on our broken washer, and maybe to the used appliance store if necessary...otherwise I'm not going anywhere because of the reason stated above!

I am currently reading~ Disciplines of a Godly Woman.

I'm looking forward to~ our trip in August that is still lingering in the balance.

From the kitchen~ooo, that reminds me, I need to grab some chicken out of the deep freeze. We're having chicken fajitas tonight!

I am thankful for~ this weight coming off of me. I feel so much better already!

I am hoping~ that the Lord will provide us with a way to fix or replace our washer without taking money saved for our trip. I can't believe this, my washer is only 2 years old. Maybe it's just too small to keep up with the demand I put on it!

I am wearing~ not much...I just weighed myself and needless to say, I don't like to be wearing 2 pounds of clothes when I do! I had better get dressed before the kids come downstairs.

I am praying~ for a washer, a good doctor appointment for Mr. Pure at Heart on Thursday, several friends, and a whole lot more!

Around the house~ well, certainly not laundry today. I got a lot done yesterday, and I hope to get the bathrooms cleaned today and pick up my bedroom a bit. Maybe pull out some more garage sale stuff.

From my picture journal~

Our special Father's Day dinner. Pizza Pasta Casserole, Garlic Bread, and Peanut Butter Brownies! Yes, I had some of everything! Yummmm!


  1. Wow, that meal looks super yummy! Hope you had a great Father's day, even with that nasty cold. South Florida is also very hot and humid this time of year, but I don't miss the cold AT ALL. I hated it! I can stand a few really bad months of summer, knowing that at least the fall, winter and spring are sweet.

    Hope that washer gets fixed! After only 2 years it should still be in good working order. But you know what they say, they don't make 'em like they used to.

    Have a great day and a blessed week.

  2. Your dinner looks YUMMY!!!!!! Maybe you would want to share your recipe for the Pizza Pasta Casserole?? :)

    I want you to feel better. I am praying for you.

    I know what you mean about the demand that you put on your washer. Same here... They never last long. I do hope that it is an easy and inexpensive fix, though. I want you to go on vacation.

    I miss CO summers, too. The humidity is hard to deal with most days.

    Have a great week!

  3. I would like to get in on this, so I will visit her blog. Very interesting, I hope you washer gets fixed! Last summer when we were moving to our new home we did not have a washer for several weeks, so the laundry piled up fast. I will pray with you that it will be a cheap fix!
    Have a great day!!
