For Today~ September 14, 2010

Outside my window~ The sun is shining with all it's might, and I LOVE IT! Sun shining days make for happy and productive days for me! The boys have been outside racing their remote control trucks in the driveway.

From the learning rooms~ We took a late and relaxed approach today. My oldest doesn't have too much to do, since we will be switching his curriculum very soon. I am so excited about soon having a central school location for everyone in the dinning room!

I am thinking~ about how great God is a working things out and bringing things together! His ways are truly above ours!

I am going~ to go pick up a movie later. I love reserving $1 movies online through Redbox, and then going and picking them up at the machine of my choice! So cheap, so easy!

I am wearing~ My pj's that I can get away with wearing as clothes! My next door neighbor commented on them last week, and told me how cute my outfit was..it took me a minute to decide to disclose the truth about them! Hehe :)

From the kitchen~ probably Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie if I can remember to get the chicken out and thaw it. I finally got the dishes done. I'm glad I waited until this morning to do them, my back is better, and I think it would have been worse if I stood crouched over at the sink last night.

I am reading~ Intimate Issues by Linda and Lorraine. One of the best books I've ever read so far!

I am hoping~ To get a whole lot more laundry done today! I got 4 loads instead of 3 loads done yesterday, so that makes me very happy!

Around the house~ Laundry, of course. More moving and organizing in the dinning room. I got some inside fall decor out yesterday, and was smiling when I remembered how pretty it all was! I was worried about the fall colors working in the now living room since I put the burgundy and green couch in there, but it's working, and I'm happy!!!!!

From my picture journal~

Decorating Tip From Better Homes and Gardens...
Look for a variety of interesting shapes and colors of gourds. When you have collected a diverse assortment, fill a wooden tray with your unique finds and place it on an outdoor table for an easy fall display.

  1. I love P.J.s like that too! :-) And there's just something about sunny days that invigorates me! Especially cool, crisp fall days with that gorgeous blue blue sky!

  2. I'm so glad you're feeling better today. I'll keep your back problems in prayer.

    Our day started off sunny, then rain, rain and more rain! It's almost daily. Of course that means no watering the plants! LOL!!

    Can't wait to see pics of the new look in your home, especially with the fall decor. Have a wonderful evening.
