For Today - April 19, 2010

Outside my window...Sunny & warm. Warm which will turn into hot later.

I am thinking...about a sweet friend that is going through so much with her son.  She has been in my thoughts & prayers non-stop.

I am thankful & feeling good.  After having an upset stomach all day Saturday & half the day yesterday, it feels so good to feel good!  We take so much for granted!

I am remembering...the sweet memories of Emily as a baby.  She wanted me to take her through all of her baby pictures this weekend & tell her story after story of "when you were a baby".  I cannot believe that baby is now 4!

On my mind...being Monday, all that I want & need to do today.

I am pondering these words..."O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever." Psalm 136:1

From the learning rooms...learning some new digital scrapbooking techniques. Now if I only had the time to do it!

From the kitchen...nothing yet, but a breakfast of oatmeal with cinnamon, raisins & blueberries will be on the menu this morning.

I am wearing...still in pj's.

I am creating...the photo book of Emily & her constant companion Lilly.  I have so many photos to still go through.

I am the health store later, as well as a few more stops.

I am Bible, What Difference Do it Make, & a stack of magazines that never seems to get smaller.

I am hoping...the temps cool down just a little bit for another week or two.  We already had to turn on our air conditioning, &  we aren't looking forward to those outrageous electric bills that come with living in Vegas.

I am hearing...the whir of the ceiling fan &  the keys on my keyboard as I hit them.

Around the house...quiet. Everyone is still sleepy.

One of my favorite things...Curling up with Elliot & Emily & watching a favorite children's show of theirs.

A few plans for the rest of the week...a hair trim for Emily & I, grocery shopping, play time at the park, nightly walks, enjoy life!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...since Emily had me going over all of her baby photos -
