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.
