For today . . . .

for today ::   July 16, 2010

outside my window. . .  hot &  humid — but, what did I expect – it’s summer in Oklahoma !

I am thinking. . . of how many blessings there are in my life

From the kitchen. . .  not much baking or cooking going on – too hot/humid for more than a quick salad and fresh melon

I am creating. . .  more pillowcases  — although I am doing a little knitting  — this hot weather is more suited for embroidery 

I am remembering. . .  to call Joe-Joe this morning and wish him a very happy birthday !   Can’t believe he is 7 years old.

I am reading. . .  my way through the Harry Potter books – wizards, witches and muggles – O’ my

I am hoping . . .  the cap on that underwater leaking oil well holds – the Gulf Coast could use a break right  now

I am hearing. . .  so much negative ads on TV– too much about what everyone is against and not enough about what they support – makes me sad for this country

Around the house. . .  our cats have discovered the coolest place in the house is on the tile floor between the kitchen and dining room – stepping over them is second nature to us now.

I am going. . . to be heading out of town to see my family in Southern Oklahoma this afternoon 

One of my favorite things. . .  hearing a favorite song and remembering all the words so I can sing along (and, have it playing in my head for days!)

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .  visiting with family and enjoying  my Mom’s cooking !

From my picture journal . . .  Joe-Joe’s Birthday Pool Party earlier this week — pizza, pool time & presents.  At one point, Joe announced to everyone that he was ‘a very lucky little boy!     Lucky and loved so very much.
