outside my window:: zinnias attracting butterflies, 2 last baby chicks chirping, 2 puppies chasing each other, clothes on the line, and lots of HOT
i am thinking:: of my great grandmother Nadine Fortenberry and how her days were simple in some ways and not in others.....i think her days might have been better
i am thankful for:: Kevin home from the hospital and recovering from surgery well & for a weekend spent with his grandmother as our guest

i am praying:: for rain and for peace and stillness
i am hearing:: the swish of the washing machine and the chirps of my 2 baby chicks
around the house:: lots of muddy footprints, popsicle drips, sawdust from goings on in the garage, and a smile on my face because my boys created it all
some of my favorite things:: choosing 6 month book list at book club tonite, 6:30 am outside feeding all the animals in the quiet, telephone conversations with my dear friend Brenda, and nighttime conversations with my sweet husband in the dark and quiet of a house with sleeping children
a few plans for the rest of the week:: lots of reading, cooking, swimming, and tadpoles & minnows
