For Today -
Outside my window...dark & so much cooler after we had a big downpour this evening.  Such a relief from the heat!
I am thinking...that it's been way too long since I've been here!
I am thankful for...the rain we had.  It's so needed here in this desert.
I am remembering...Elliot & Emily squealing with joy as we were driving out in the rain.  You would have thought they'd never seen it before! :)
On my mind...Mike...we skyped tonight & he wasn't feeling well.  I felt bad for him  with him being so far away in Saudi.
I am pondering these words...Emily's words as we were out this afternoon, & a downpour began.  It was so hard, we had to pull off because we couldn't see to drive.  She was looking around, & at first she was a bit afraid, & she said "We have to remember that God said He'd never destroy the earth with a flood again."  Then she sees the river of water flowing down the streets, & she wasn't so sure.  She timidly asked "Right?"  :)
From the learning rooms...leaning some new things about graphics.
From the kitchen...closed for the night.  We went out to eat earlier.
I am Eeyore nightshirt.  It has the words "If I start to snore...just tug on my tail". :)  And by the way, I don't snore. :) 
I am creating...lots of new tiny graphics.
I am enjoy an iced coffee (decaf) after I post here.  I think I need to add a piece of chocolate to that. 
I am reading...Seaside Harmony on my iPad, as well as What Women Fear, & my Bible.
I am hoping...these next 4 weeks go by quickly, so that Mike will be home with us for a week!  Although, Mom used to tell me to never wish time to pass quickly, because you are wishing your life away. So maybe I'll wish for it to 'feel' like it's going by quickly.
I am hearing...nothing but my quiet. 
Around the house...little muddy paw prints.  I'm ashamed to say, I haven't cleaned them up yet from when our doggies had to go out for their potty break in the rain.
One of my favorite things...being up in the quiet of the night, working on graphics. 
A few plans for the rest of the week...homeschool, grocery shopping, making some graphics, enjoying my days.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...Avery is always pretending she is someone or something else.  When she gets in these moods, we have to call her by the name of whatever or whoever she is.  We took her out the last time she came over, & she pulls these glasses out of her purse, puts them on, & announces that she's a man, & that we have to call her Mr. Man. :)  We got a lot of stares & giggles as we went about our day out, & I'd say "Mr. Man" to this little girl in disguise.... It was either call her that, or she wouldn't answer. :)  And no, she wouldn't take them off...she said she looked "like a handsome man". :)
