For Today... June 15th, 2015

Outside my window... This my view as I write up this post. It was really foggy this morning, but it looks like it going to be a nice day.

I am thinking... about the Bible study I am starting today.

I am thankful... For rainbows after a storm.

I am wearing... yoga pants and a tank top

I am creating... I am still working on the rice heating bags (getting a nice little stock pile for a craft show I will be in, in November), and I made another candle flower pot for my oldest son. He like the ones I have on my patio table and wanted one for his.

I am going... to shower soon, as I have an interview a little later this morning. I love my job I have now, but things are really slow, and it makes that 10 hour days go by way to slow. I need something that is a little more busy/and challenging.

I am wondering... how my kitchen will look if we do paint our cabinets black?? When my hubby first mentioned it, I didn't like the idea, but I found this picture online and I am really liking this. Just need to figure out what color I want to pain the walls.

I am reading... Psalm 119 - for the next 8 weeks, I am doing a Bible study.

I am hoping... that the counter top we need to get won't be as costly as we think it may be!

In my kitchen... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ spaghetti and garlic bread
Tuesday ~ BBQ ribs, scalloped potatoes, corn and rolls
Wednesday ~ leftovers
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ kielbasa and mac n cheese
Saturday ~ hot dogs, fries and fruit

A favorite quote for today...

A peek into one of my days... This was yesterday: on our way over to my inlaws to visit for a bit, and to bring flowers to my MIL for her birthday. And to have this amazing dessert: s'more cheesecake. It was oh so yummy!!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ laundry, sweep/mop, vacuum, dust, dishes, make the sauce, bake some banan muffins, interview, crochet
Tuesday ~ mow the lawn, crochet
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ grocery shopping, light housework, hanging out with the hubby
Saturday ~ painting in the kitchen
Sunday ~ Father's Day ~ church, potluck (at church), then over to the inlaws I think

From the board room... From my Yummy Desserts/Cookies/Treats board. I think I am going to make these to bring over to my inlaws this weekend for Father's Day
