My Daybook May 18, 2015

Read other Daybooks.
FOR TODAY May 18th...

Outside My Window... 
green grass, blue sky, still air

I am thinking...
I do wish the children wouldn't bicker.

I am thankful for...
children who get along well most of the time. They're best friends for life.

From the kitchen...
I'm going to go make a chocolate muffin in a mug from the Trim Healthy Mama book.

I am wearing...
my polka dot dress. It's light and cool.

I am creating...
I haven't had time to create anything lately.

I am going...
to do my normal Monday driving.

I am reading...
Beauty by the Book, Whispers on the Dock, and Trim Healthy Mama.

I am hoping...
that the cool (for May '70's) weather continues.

I am hearing...
birds, a lawn mower, traffic on the highway.

Around the house...
the girls just finished the dishes. School books will come out in a few minutes.

One of my favorite things...
Dasani water is my favorite bottled water.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
Catching up on school paperwork... school with the kids... cleaning... sewing... cleaning... driving everyone everywhere... and decluttering for a yard sale.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
My favorite sandwich at my husband's restaurant.
