Outside my window . . . Today has been a beautiful sunny day. I love all the wildflowers and grasses growing in the fields and meadows around our house.
I am thankful . . . for all the wonderful people in my life - family, friends, kids and online friends.
I am going . . . taking Lauren to and from preschool, making a stop at the grocery store and taking my friend Jennifer to and from work today are what I'll be out and about doing.
I am wondering . . . if I really grasp how very blessed I am to live in a country full of opportunity and freedom. Yes, we are facing challenges, but we are also still blessed beyond measure.
Around the house . . . Doug and Michael have gone to do some yard work at our pastor's house, CJ, Mykalin and Cayson are playing in the playroom, Amanda is in her room, and Aaron and Austin are upstairs playing video games. Dinner is ready and we are waiting for Doug and Michael to come home so we can eat.
A favorite quote for today . . . Maybe a person's time would be as well spent raising food as raising money to buy food. ~ Frank A. Clark
One of my favorite things. . . bread machines. I love the convenience of being able to put the ingredients in the machine and having a fresh loaf of bread. And there are so many wonderful recipes to choose from. I really need to order the paddle for mine - it disappeared and I can't find it anywhere.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . tomorrow Amanda's cat has vet appointment and she also has her volunteer time at the SPCA. I'm sure CJ and Michael will want to go to the store. Austin has a friend coming over this evening and staying the night and then on Sunday he's planning to go to another friend's house.
