Up and Running Again

You know I keep thinking I want to start writing on the ole blog again, but life gets in the way. But today with a few extra minutes, and a fresh outlook here we go. Thought I would make it a simple post. Got the idea from one of my favorite people Ali Edwards (famous scrapbooker). I read (stalk) her blog everyday wishing I could do the things she does. And today I thought why not? So here goes.

June 23st, 2009

Outside my window... Sun is shining, weeds are growing, and pool is a cloudy shade of blue. Which is fine by me as last week it looked vaguely like a swamp.

I am thinking... about how I love my life right now. Just wish I could be home more to enjoy it. Also thinking I really need to get my walk in before it get too warm.

I am thankful for... children doing their chores without being asked. Noah must really want something.

From the kitchen... new Pampered Chef recipe. Healthy and yummy. Who could ask for anything more?

I am wearing... walking shoes and clothes. I will get outside soon I promise.

I am creating... my blog. And a very full life.

I am going... to walk, pull weeds, watch the kids swim, to Weight Watchers, then to Paige's game. Pizza after for both teams.

I am reading... The Life of Pi, with Nose Down Eyes Up next. Just finished the Twilight series.

I am hoping... that we can get through the summer without anything else breaking. Here is the list: Noah's finger, computer, dryer, microwave, TV, Blazer, and refrigerator.

I am hearing... Children yelling, Garrett sounding like a tractor and dogs barking.

Around the house... Tuesday is cleaning day. Started working on the piles that all over this house. Time to PARE DOWN!!!

One of my favorite things... Diet Coke

A few plans for the rest of the week... work, ball games, continue to work on room at a time on paring down. Need to start the next garage sale collection.

I hope this finds everyone well and happy. Let me know what is going on in your neck of the woods.
