For Today - June 14, 2010

Outside my window...sunny & hot, hot, hot.

I am thinking...I need to get busy today after having a lazy morning with Elliot & Emily.  I love these mornings though - we talk, play, laugh, & just have fun. 

I am thankful for...modern technology.  I love doing digital scrapbooking, & I'm amazed at what you can do on computers! 

I am remembering...when I used to tell Mike that I couldn't understand why anyone would want a computer or want to send an 'email', when they could just write a letter or pick up the phone.  He had to drag me into this world, & I was hooked after one day!  So hooked, that I began building my first website the next day. 

On my mind...friends that have been through a lot the past few weeks.  I feel so deeply for those that are in my life. 

I am pondering these words..."The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afaid?" Psalm 27:1 

From the learning rooms...I'm learning new things with my digital scrapbooking.  It still amazes me to see a page come together after adding the elements, ect. 

From the kitchen...after having had waffles this morning for breakfast, I can't even think of dinner yet. 

I am capris & black top. 

I am digital scrap pages. 

I am work on a few pages (see above) later. 

I am Bible & a few children's books to Elliot & Emily. 

I am hoping...still hoping that what Mike & I have been discussing becomes a reality. 

I am hearing...Emily talking to me as I type.  She sits right here beside me. 

Around the house...lots to do today - scrapbooking, cleaning, scrapbooking, laundry, & scrapbooking. :-) 

One of my favorite things...well, should I say it?  Scrapbooking.  

A few plans for the rest of the week...print out pictures to change out all the photos in frames thoughout the house (we have a lot!),  try to scrapbook at least one page each day, do my 'summer' cleaning - I do 'spring' cleaning each season, enjoy my family. 

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...I'm sharing two pictures today, because they go together.  These are two pages that I digital scrapbooked.  They are for the first time Emily did her piggy tails by herself.  You can click on them to enlarge them.  Even seeing them enlarged doesn't do them justice - the details don't show up like they do full size.
