Outside my Window…A cheery sun, and the prospect of getting outside with the kids

I am thinking…that since I failed to get my life in order and priorities in line by myself, God has taken some steps to get my attention.

I am thankful for…the worship leader at my church who preached the message yesterday. It was timely and convicting.

From the kitchen…say it with me….green smoothie! And I made some beeeeeautiful bread last night, probably my best looking loaves ever.

I am creating…time to read

I am going…to Target for new workout clothes and a Pilates mat (hopefully), to BJ’s for more lettuce, and to the gym for a workout

I am wearing…my around the house clothes, nothing special today.

I am reading…Memoirs of a Geisha

I am hoping…for some balance this week, no matter how much work God gives me.

I am hearing…the Firecracker get toothbrushes ready for herself and her brother, and the Look Alike’s sweet baby sounds beside me.

Around the house…I need to mop floors wash windows.

One of my favorite things…is homemade salad dressing; the family seems to love what I’ve made in the Blendtec.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…shopping and gym today, gym Wednesday, small group Thursday, Friday is the Music Man’s last day of school so we’ll have to do something to celebrate, birthday party for a friend on Saturday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…this is the dress I found this weekend for a wedding in July. hopefully boot camp at the new gym will kick my tush into shape, because it’s gorgeous and I’m not quite in shape for it yet.

Now go see Peggy!

I am thinking…about my run today

I am thankful for…my children’s every breath
