for today.

July 8, 2009

Outside my window... my dog is resting against the screen, trying to get as close as she can to us.

I am thinking... about which tasks are the priority today, I always seem to run out of time and forget to do the most important things when I get distracted by little things that come up.

I am thankful for... family life these days; things are calm and easy, and I love that.

From the kitchen... the smell of homemade waffles lingers. The vanilla scent is so comforting.

I am wearing... jeans and a t-shirt, no shoes-- as usual.

I am creating... a little this and that. Disney layouts (again) and a mini book... and so many ideas floating in my head. Wish I had the time to put them all together quickly.

I am going... to take the girls to swim lessons this morning.

I am reading... "Happens Every Day" -- a book I picked up from the public library last week.

I am hoping... that burdens I carry with me lately will lift off my shoulders soon and that I can find a peace I haven't felt in such a long time.

I am hearing... the pitter-patter of little feet, running up and down the stairs; the triplets are home for the summer, won't be back in school until mid-August.

Around the house... there is so much laundry to fold. It's my least-favorite thing to do.

One of my favorite things... is spending a lazy day at the beach. Gotta plan more days like that before summer's over.

A few plans for the rest of the week... include a couple more days of swim lessons and another trip to the library on Friday. If we can manage it, I want to go to the movies for a matinee with the little ones, too.

A picture to share...
