For Today - May 17, 2010

Outside my window...warm, but slightly overcast.  Very welcome, as it's been so hot.

I am thinking...about how blessed I am. 

I am thankful for...all the memories we made at Disneyland last week.  One week in our life, but the memories will last a lifetime.

I am remembering...our days of fun at Disneyland.

On my sweet friend that has been through so much.  Trial after trial, & yet another one has entered her life.  I admire her strength & her faith.

I am pondering these words..."This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24

From the learning much to learn about my new camera.  I've read through my book at least 6 times, & still don't have it all down.

From the kitchen...I baked lemon poppyseed muffins with lemon glaze this morning.  They were delicious with my coffee! 

I am wearing...still in my Pooh pj's.  As I've said before, I am a child at heart.

I am creating...memories...lots of them!

I am going...out with hubby & Elliot & Emily later.  We are going to look at new laptops & some other 'geek' things.

I am Bible, the manual for my new camera, & 'I Will Carry You' by Angie Smith

I am hoping...I can get back to eating healthy after our week away.  I made the decision before we left, that it was going to be a week of calories not counting, & eating what I wanted, when I wanted.  Problem is, I am now back, & I loved those rules while away a bit too much!

I am hearing...the cartoon show 'Little Bear' on Noggin.

Around the house...lots to do.  I haven't been able to get back into the 'real' life mode yet - I'm still in vacation mode. 

One of my favorite things...Disneyland! 

A few plans for the rest of the week...get back into my daily routine, eat healthy to make up for last week, continue to work on my photos, enjoy my days.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...sweet memories -

  1. Happy Monday Judy;

    Your SWD entry is a joy to read. My heart and prayers go out to your friend. Psalm 118:24 always makes my day.

    Your lemon poppyseed muffins made me hungry. I'd love the recipe as I make muffins at least once a week.

    Beautiful photo of Emily & Eliott. Great memories for sure. Have a lovely and blessed day. love & hugs

  2. Hello Judy,
    I am so glad that you had a wonderful time in Disneyland!! Loved the photo of Elliot and Emily-so cute and such precious memories.
    I look forward to seeing all the photos of your trip.
    Thank you for sharing the bible verse with us-I love this verse!
    Oh yes-that "still on vacation mode!!" It is so hard isn't it when we get back and just cannot get back into our every day routines?!
    I am sure that your camera was very well used to capture many more wonderful moments. What a beautiful and thoughtful gift from Mike!
    Love you much my sweet friend. You are a blessing!

  3. Hi Judy! Psalm 118:v24 is one of my fav's, I claim it several times a day! I knew you all would have a wonderful time in Disneyland, I can't wait to read all about it!

    You are also blessed with a wonderful hubby, so thoughtful and loving! Oh... I wished I lived closer, I would be stopping in for some muffins! Lots of hugs!

  4. Hi Judy, what a wonderful entry, I'm also a child at heart & it's nice to read someone is the same. The best way to learn more about your camera is to use it. I love the children's photo, Emily is wearing the perfect dress :o)
    Our weather can be pretty humid but we're getting used to it especially when there's a nice breeze. It never reaches the high temperatures you get. Have a great week, hugs

  5. Hi Judy,
    So happy to hear you had a good time here at Disneyland. Great picture of the kids. In May it still cools down here at night. We don't have hot nights until July really! I ejpyed reading your SWD. Be sure to swing by my post tomorrow since you are not on FB. I posted some pictures of Justin at his girlfriend Tiffany's prom from last weekend ;)
    Hugs, Dru
