Outside my window... the sun is shining, the birds are gathered around the feeders enjoying their breakfast, the sprinklers in the back yard are going...it's a beautiful early morning.
I am thinking... of how nice it is to have a *mostly* stay home day after the past two busy weeks.
I am thankful... for the countless blessings all around me.
In the kitchen... it's been too hot to get very excited about cooking lately, although I did make some pizza dough last night and made one big pizza for our dinner, and froze the rest of the dough for dinner another night.
I am creating... music on my mandolin. I didn't get to play yesterday though, I missed it... I'll have to catch up today! ;)
I am going... to take R and S into Denver this evening for the Miss Colorado Pageant. They are participating as "special princesses" and will each escort one of the Miss Colorado contestants onstage and then do a little introduction with them. It will be a very fun, VERY girly evening.
I am reading... still Chesapeake by Michener (but I've read a few other things lately too...)
I am looking forward to... a weekend with no major events happening (graduations, Father's Day, birthdays) just to enjoy hanging around the house.
Around the house... I'm still thinking about the shed roof. I think Joe wants to put up a gambrel roof, so I'm going to play around today with diagrams of how it might look. If the scale of the roof isn't right, it's going to look weird (there are a few weird looking gambrel roofs around here, I want to avoid that)... so I'll be getting out the graph paper and working on scale today.
A favorite quote for today...Teach us to make the most of our time so that we may grow in wisdom. Psalm 90:12 I ran across this verse while reading through my notebook of favorite verses and quotes this morning... It's been so hot I've been low on energy lately, it's a good reminder to make good use of my time.
A peek into my day...
