stolen from Sabro's blog who stole it from someone else's


Outside my window... sun shining, willow weeping, bikes strewn, flower pots waiting.

I am thinking... I hope the bank doesn't approve the financing for the thieves trying to steal this dream home right from under me!

I am thankful for...internet access....duh. And this gorgeous home. And the warm sunny weather. And the peaceful morning I spent cuddled in bed with my girlies, listening to them read. And my recent flexible "dream" OT job offer. And so. much. more.

From the kitchen... prep for a dinner of stuffed chicken, fettuccine, garlic bread, garden salad, and blueberry cream cheese dessert for tomorrow night's out-of-town guests. Yay! I get to play hostess again!

I am wearing... brown yoga pants and a spring green tank in hopes of sitting in the sun later today. Hey, I live in the middle of nowhere....I don't have to match!

I am creating... a springy tablescape for tomorrow's dinner. To unpack the china or not?

I am going... to P90x these flabby arms. And finish my application for Iowa licensure.

I am reading... Wild at Heart, New Moon, and Raising a Reader.

I am hoping... that we don't have to move AGAIN! And that our renters up north pay their rent on time. And that they fall in love with our house and decide to buy it. Soon.

I am hearing... Ella and Gwen singing "I've got the've got the cookies," as they prance around the house in their aprons.

Around the house... dolls nestled in their homes made of flat-screen TV packaging. (Steve got a hold of our tax return.)

One of my favorite things... color. Bright color. The older I get the more I crave color. It does something to my soul.

A few plans for the rest of the week: cleaning house, sun bathing, tomorrow's company which is sure to include a few heated games of the recently ignored Settlers of Catan, seed planting at the nursing home.

Those all sound like wonderful things!!! I hope you get to keep your house too! :)

Two posts in 24 hours??!! I'm thrilled you're back, this seems to be the only way I get to keep in touch with you (in a very distant, impersonal, yet semi-satisfying way).

Glad to hear you've got renters up north and I'll pray for rent money paid EARLY and for heads to fall over heels. Also praying you don't have to move again and that you'll be able to buy your dream house soon.

I relate soo much to the color thing...daily I contemplate painting our very white (inside) house. I think I will actually tackle the project as soon as spring is completely here and I can have the windows open. Ooh, I think I just saw our first bluebird....
