Outside my window... The sun is shining ever so brightly. It's a HOT day for May; over 90 degrees out. The lawn is freshly mown from a few days ago and it gives me a feeling of peace to not see tall grass in the front yard.
I am thinking... about all the "to-dos" I have. We are planning a short-notice wedding for August and there are so many details. Never fear, I am not stressed at all. It is actually fun, and things amazingly seem to be falling into place for us.
I am thankful... that the wedding planning is going smoothly. Seems like our first choices for venue, photos, DJ, and cake are all available and doable budget wise. Need to talk to florist and caterer still, but since we are doing a Sunday evening wedding (one concession made because of the proximity of the wedding), I am hopeful they will be as readily available as the other vendors.
In the kitchen... there is absolutely nothing going on. It is blissfully clean and hopefully will stay that way until I have to cook again.
I am wearing... grey pants with a white surplice top, no shoes.
I am creating... LISTS!
I am going... to our special end-of-the-month instrumental service tonight, followed by fun in the park with the youth group to kick off summer.
I am wondering... what the coming year will bring
I am reading... Homefires, by Emily Sue Harvey.
I am hoping... we have a fun and relatively stress-free summer.
I am looking forward to... being a grandma.
I am learning... joy in all circumstances.
Around the house... it is quiet. Halle and I are the only ones at home, since the 3 guys are on their way home from a guys' weekend in Atlanta.
I am pondering... the goodness of God.
A favorite quote for today... Desire God, not his gifts.
One of my favorite things... a good book and a quiet house. (OK, that's two...)
A few plans for the rest of the week: Headed to my sister's house in the country tomorrow for food and fun. The rest of the week will probably be spent firming up wedding plans, paying deposits, meeting with caterer(s), florist(s), DJ, etc.
