For Today - September 27, 2010

Outside my window...normal Las & sunny.  I want fall! 

I am thinking...I am 'so' blessed!!! 

I am thankful many sweet friends that I've met on the web.  Like I said above, I am 'so' blessed!

I am fun weekend with Elliot & Emily.  We didn't really do anything special - just fun things together.  Some baking (they loved that!), stories, game playing, shopping, ect.  Mike is out of town, so it's us three.

On my mind...lunch.  I think I'll take Elliot & Emily out for pizza for something special.  Emily's already telling Elliot - "I think Mommy has something special planned for us!" :-)

I am pondering these words..."I just needed to hear your voice"...words that my sister said to me when she called the other day.  I remember Mom saying that so often when she would call me.  It's touching to think that someone wants/needs to hear you.  I think about how my terminally ill niece would tell my sister, "I would be okay if I could just talk to Judy", & it brings tears to my eyes. She is gone now.  Who might need to hear 'your' voice today?  Call them... 

From the learning rooms...I learned how to change my font here (hope it's not too difficult to read).  I'm always up for learning new things on my computer.

From the kitchen...pasta, salad, & bread tonight...followed up with cake & ice cream later in the evening.  Lots of carbs!

I am jean capris & pink top. 

I am organized home. 

I am going...oh shopping today.  Avery will be here in a few hours & she's an eating we have to stock up on her favorites. 

I am Bible, magazines, & a few other books. 

I am son gets the call this week on the job he wants. He has so much hope, & you can see that.  

I am hearing...Angelina Ballerina - one of Emily's favorite shows. 

Around the house...quiet & peaceful...for now.  Remember - Avery will be here later. :-) 

One of my favorite things...seeing Avery's face & hearing her laughter when she arrives.  She runs around giving us all big hugs, squealing "I'm back!  I'm back!  I missed you SO much!"  She is so precious!

A few plans for the rest of the week...I got everything caught up, so not a whole lot planned since Avery will be here...just fun stuff with the kids. 

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...Guess who? :-)  We can't wait to see her this afternoon.

  5. Hi Judy;

    Loved reading your SWD. Great font in here. I changed mine this morning to comic sans which is one everyone usually has. Yours looks alot my own handwriting. ;-}

    My daughter usually says "I just wanted to hear your voice" when she calls me which is almost daily. It make me feel wonderful to hear that.

    I pray your son & my daughter get jobs soon. Have a blessed day my friend. Hugs
