For today...July 5, 2011
Outside my window...cloudy and about 70°.
I am thinking...that I'm looking forward to visiting with my parents next month.
I am thankful...that I have had wonderful, Godly parents all my life. ♥
I am hearing...the washing machine. I'm so thankful for the little 'maids' we have. :)
I am remembering...the beautiful fireworks we went to see last night. The weather was warm, but not hot, and there was a wonderful breeze blowing. I really enjoyed it.
I just finished reading...The Masterpiece by Mary Ann Minatra. This is the second book in the Alcott Legacy series. I'm looking forward to reading the third one.
From the kitchen...I'll be cooking some corn on the cob today. A sweet lady from church gave us some tomatoes and cucumbers on Sunday, so I'm going to make a salad too.
One of my favorite things...Olive Garden salad dressing. Oh my, it is good! One of our friends from church took Katie shopping last Monday, then they went to Olive Garden for supper. Our friend bought an Olive Garden gift card and a bottle of their dressing so Katie could give it to us for our anniversary. Wasn't that sweet? I'm looking forward to using the dressing tonight. :)
A few plans for the rest of the week...working at the school to get ready for next year, groceries and library tomorrow, church on Thursday.
Words to think about...When we obey God and yield our lives to Him, emptying ourselves of selfish desires, the Spirit of God is just like a spring bubbling up within us from down deep in our souls. The Spirit source fills us, and we are satisfied. ~Joni Eareckson Tada
A picture I'm sharing this week...I was so happy to win Laura's giveaway! These bags are so nice. It's special to have something handmade from a sweet friend. ♥
