FOR TODAY: Tuesday, May 28th, 2012

Outside my window...  It is raining off and on. We'll have hard rain, then a drizzle, then it's pouring again. I LOVE this kind of rainy day. I am enjoying it SO very much. We are receiving the outer bands of Tropical Depression Beryl.

I am thinking...  that I have SO much blogging to catch up on! I LOVE BLOGGING and have missed it while we were away.

I am thankful...  that God gave us traveling mercies. Twice on our trip we stopped to use the restroom, eat or get gas, only to get back on the highway and find a major wreck within 10-20 miles of where we got off. Thank you, Lord for your protection. And thank you to all my family and friends who were in continuous prayer for our time traveling.

In the kitchen...  ehh. Steak and hamburgers that were thawed out to grill went bad from us not being home. Oh well, such is life.

I am wearing...  stretchy, comfy clothes!

I am creating...  quilts & baby items

I am going...  to relax and enjoy my home. Humble though it may be, there's NO PLACE LIKE HOME.

I am wondering... how everything will play out this week. Lots of things up in the air.

I am reading... Just finished Swinging on a Star and am starting the third book in the Weddings by Bella series. "It Had To Be You". This series is a christian romantic comedy and it has me LITERALLY laughing out loud! Highly recommend if you are looking for a light, fun read :)

I am hoping...  that Patches will be OK at the vet Tues and Wed.

I am looking forward to...  this weekend when Lisa and I are taking a trip up to Ohio. We will be spending some time in Holmes County, in Amish Country, prior to picking up Ronnie's mom and moving her down here. So excited about that! And so thankful for my bestie!

I am learning... that you can not see someone that you truly, unconditionally love for 11 years and it seems like it was JUST YESTERDAY when you finally do.

Around the house... clearing out! After our experience this weekend we are getting things in order and getting rid of clutter!

I am pondering... how wonderful God is and how blessed I am. I love my life, the people in it, my family, my friends, my church family. I am SO very, very blessed.

A favorite quote for today...  "They gave their tomorrow, for our today" honor of Memorial Day

One of my favorite things... is this RAIN! Thank you, Lord for this wonderful, ongoing rain!

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Yikes. Get things ready for Mom to move down, get coverage at church, meeting with local funeral home to get our affairs in order, talk with attorney at church to get our will updated, Patches has appt to get de-clawed tomorrow, and who knows what else. That's all off the top of my head, I haven't even looked at my calendar!

 A peek into my day...
