Fill In The Blank

Outside My Window...
A flower bed planted by my husband and boys as part of my birthday present. Right in the middle of it is my cat sleeping very lazily.

I am thinking...
about the after school snacks that are in the oven baking and about my boys.

I am thankful for...
that God truly never leaves us or forsakes us.

From the kitchen...
I am baking a new batch Hidden Valley Ranch oyster crackers for the boys. I also have ribs in the crock pot.

I am wearing...
one of my husband's t-shirts and a pair of shorts.

I am creating...
a big mess in the kitchen with the cooking.

I am going...
crazy. I am just not good at being out of control and there are just some things in my life right that I have no control over.

I am reading...
Presumed Guilty by James Scott Bell.

I am hoping...
to get the house clean. Maybe it's more of a wish than a hope. Maybe it's science fiction. I'm not sure.

I am hearing...
the clicking of the keyboard, the sound of the air conditioner and my prayers running through my mind.

Around the house...
there are pockets of "to do's" that I just don't have the energy for right now.

One of my favorite things...
The way my husband's face feels after he has just shaved.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
For now I am just thinking about "now". One step at a time. Moment by moment. The rest of the week will just have to take care of itself.

And sorry about leaving the "a" off your name on my comment, that's what I get for typing so fast.

Sandi said...

How sweet for your hubby to plant you a garden. :)
Ditto Wifey's comment ... you sound like a fantastic cook!

I stole your idea, too.

At least you are surrounded by beauty, even if things in your head are crazy...we're still praying for you.

Science Fiction?? You're too funny!
