~Just For Today~

Outside My Window~ There is a beautiful moon, a newspaper to be picked up, and my neighbor's ugly 1970's Winnebago that the HOA keeps telling him to get of the curb.

I am Thinking~ How nice it would be to have some Swedish Pancakes right now, and about my sister who is 1.5 hours away with her husband who is having some medical procedures done this morning.  I hope she is holding up o.k.

I am Thankful~ That I don't have to rush out the door in the morning to work, my husband kisses and hugs me good by every day, I can be there when my kids get home from school, that I can pray.

In My Kitchen~ Last night's dinner mess (shhhhh, I hate cleaning it up at night), a big ole bowl of coffee I used to stain some tea towels, and my 8 year old playing the DS next to me.

I've Got On~ O.k.  really.......I threw on some jeans and a hoodie over my p.j. shirt to take my kids to school.  Most days I stay like this until 1:30, but today I have to leave the house by 12:15.

I am Creating~ A small mess on the garage floor.  Sanding and painting and staining a wooden dish I got from GW ages ago.

I am Going To~ Volunteer at the elementary school, to pick up our newest addition to the family, and then to Church meetings.

I am wondering~ What makes some people more motivated in life and why my 3 year old is already throwing a tantrum this morning.

I am Reading~ The Scriptures and the current copy of Country Sampler.

I am Hoping~ That my baby's fever stays away and that my neighbor will make me dinner.  Yum.

I Can't Wait For~ The weekend, Valentine's Day, getting our taxes back, taking a weekend to the city with the family, Spring.

I am Learning~ How to stitch and paint, plant and grow.  I have been learning a lot about myself and about others lately.  I have been learning about God's love for all of his children.

Around The House~ Soon, I mean like in 7 hours soon, there will be a new kitty around the house:)

A Few Of My Favorite Things~ Singing, hearing my children sing, hugging my husband, snuggling my children, eating cake, Alaska ( we use to live there), and a nice Jacuzzi.  All at the same time would be nice:)

Some Plans For The Rest Of The Week~ Play with and love on the new kitty, girls afternoon to Pizza Hut, craft store, and hopefully a visit from my sister whom I only get to see a few times a year.

A Peek Into My Day~ Hanging my tea towls to dry.  Everyone's art gets on the fridge:)

Have a great ~Just For Today~

What a great post! I love your towel (it took me three times to type that...my fingers need more coffee!) I bet the girls are super excited about getting a new kitty! We are puppy shopping here...I hope I don't regret THAT. I would most certainly get a kitty instead..except I'm allergic..so so much for that! I hope you had a wondeful wonderful day! Katie
