For Today... Monday, September 21st
Outside my window... the sound of crickets, an occasional bird call, sunshine and 66° degree weather. The window is open and the breeze is blowing. A little piece of heaven on earth! The great thing is, today is the start of my stay-cation ... and my sister is coming for dinner tonight!
I am thinking... of all I want to accomplish this week plus a BALANCE of rest ... I'm thinking I will have to leave the house one day this week just to keep myself from wanting to DO instead of BE.
I am thankful...I've worked at my job long enough to have earned these "stay-cations."
I am wearing... right now my jean shorts and ratty, but comfortable, purple shirt. Later on, I will wear my new MiMi tee. It says "MiMi - Love Laugh Spoil" which I think is pretty accurate.
I am creating... dinner for company tonight: Broiled Pork Steaks, Green Beans, Baked Beans (I know, I know, but gotta keep all of the fam happy ...) and the hugest salad I can make with all the "fixin's." Lemon Cheesecake Mousse will round out the meal. Yum, yum!
I am going... to stay home as many days as possible this week.
I am reading... "Simply Tuesday," by Emily P. Freeman and "A House Divided," by Robert Whitlow.
In my kitchen... I've already posted about tonight's dinner, but I hope this week to make up a couple batches of dumplings for the freezer and plan a month long menu that I'm going to try to rotate so that I will always know what I'm going to fix. Wish me luck on that last one!
A favorite quote for today... "God never said your miracle would be convenient." - Rev. Kim Ferguson
A peek into one of my days... new art in our home office.
One of my favorite things... house tours on blogs. I get a lot of ideas there. Plus, I just love looking at decor. Today, I'm looking at BLOGGER STYLIN’ HOME TOURS FALL 2015.
Have a great week, y'all! I certainly plan to do so.
