FOR TODAY (Monday, May 4th)...
Outside my window... The sun is shining and the sky is blue. There's still a chill in the air, but that won't last long. It's suppose to be a nice, warmish day. There is garden debris all over the back lawn from my work in the garden yesterday. The spring clean up has begun.
I am thinking... that it feels good to be out working in the gardens and actually enjoying it again. For the last couple of years I seemed to do just what was neccesary as I didn't seem to have the energy. This year, I'm planning a big overhaul!
I am thankful for... Joyce. I don't know her in person, but I found her through blogging and she is one of the blogs I visit on a regular basis. I feel so inspired by her as a mother, and a Christian.
From the scrapbook room... I'm trying to focus on my project 365 right now and getting that caught up. Hopefully I will have some more layouts to share with you shortly.
From the kitchen... Tonight I was going to make Peanut, Chicken, Noodle dish that is one of my family's favorites. This may be put off for pizza if I spend the day outside hauling dirt, stones, and furniture around.
I am wearing... hahahaha! Guess!
I am creating... or attempting to create a better outdoor living space. We have purchased a gazebo and spent yesterday getting it up. We're going to purchase an outdoor "living room" for underneath it. If it all comes together as I envision it, it should be quite a transformation.
I am going... to the garden centre today to get some more garden supplies and stones. I also need to make it out to the grocery store.
I am reading... Church of Lies by Flora Jessop. It's another book on the FLDS (the polygamist cult). I seem to have a facination for the FLDS.
I am hoping... that I'm not too sore from all the heavy work I have planned for myself. Now I'm really wishing I was in better physical shape!
I am hearing... the TV. Matt is watching the sports updates while he prints off an assignment he needs to hand in today.
Around the house... mess, mess, and more mess!
One of my favorite things... blogging and reading blogs. I love peaking into people's lives and reading tidbits from them. I also love reading and catching up on friends and loved ones.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I have lots planned and I may be too ambitious. Most of the plans surround the outdoors. hopefully by the end of the week I will have all the gardens done with the exception of the mulch and all the plants planted. After today I may be trying to dodge some rain, though, so I might not be too successful.
On the kid front, I think we only have one concert this week. Compared to the 4 from last week, I think it's managable.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
