Outside my window...
overcast and warm, 76°

I am thinking...about my new daily schedule. Today begins week 3 of exercising continuously every morning before work.  The first week I did the Walk Away the Pounds video one mile walk.  The second week, I did the one mile walk while doing the weights.  This week, I'm doing the two mile.  Let me just say the two mile is more intense!

I am thankful.
..for grace.  How I need it!

In the kitchen... broiled pork steak

I am wearing... black dress with turquoise shrug

I am creating... new work habits.  I've already shared the exercise part of my new schedule.  I'm also working from home on my second job each evening instead of working all day Saturday. This is my second week of working from home and it seems to be going well.

I am going... to a picnic Saturday.

I am reading... book three of the Secrets of Crittenden County series, "Found," by Shelley Shepard Gray.

I am have time to plant my containers on my porch soon.

I am looking forward to... Memorial Day ... another day off!

 Around the house... peace and tranquility

I am pondering... my next post ...

A favorite quote for today...

because what messes our life up most — is the expectation of what our life is supposed to look like … ANN VOSKAMP, A HOLY EXPERIENCE, Why Mother's Day is for the Birds

So true... I thought my life would turn out a certain way, and it was way the other direction ... at least, so far! Who knows what my life will be like by the end of my earthly journey?

One of my favorite things...using binders to organize various things.  I especially love binders with a clear pocket where you can use colored paper to make a pretty cover.

A few plans for the rest of the week: sticking with my new schedule ... and hopefully put up winter clothes and find my capris!

A peek into my day...

Bridge at the Iris Farm where we spent a lovely Saturday afternoon.

I too am on a workout plan. I hope this is the year for getting fit and healthy! I love your quote of the day! I often feel that if my kids don't turn out the way I "see" them the the world will just end! Is that crazy or what? God has a plan for them AND IT AIN'T MINE! LOL! Beautiful picture! I love Iris'. There is such a wide variety of colors! Hope you week stays peaceful and tranquil. God Bless!
