For Today... April 13th, 2015 ~ Its my birthday!

Outside my window... Its cloudy, and has rained a little bit already.

I am thinking... that I should really get going, so I can finish the laundry and housework quickly so I can veg for the day until my hubby takes me out for dinner

I am thankful... for my wonderful hubby. He is an awesome man of God, and spoils me rotten!

I am wearing... for now, black yoga pants, a purple tank top and a gray hoodie. Later I will have on a dressy pair of jeans, a purple top and one of my scarves

I am creating... Still working on the two crochet projects; the afghan and the curtain. I finished up my "create" project, just need to get it hung up

I am going... to possibly get my truck cleaned inside and out - if the rain holds off.

I am wondering... if I will see the youngest today. I know that my oldest will be stopping over tomorrow after his dentist appointment.

I am reading... I am still reading "Capturing The Prodigal's Heart" by Mary Easton. I am having a hard time getting into it.

I am hoping... that the weather will be nice today and tomorrow for my last two days off.

I am learning... to finally play the piano (well keyboard). I have printed off some music, but plan on getting a "I taught myself how to play the keyboard" book. I will look into taking lessons, but not just yet.

In my garden... out front that is... I am starting to see some green shoots coming up. I am not sure what they are, as I don't remember the last thing I planted in there.

In my kitchen... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ going to Bud n Stanley's for dinner
Tuesday ~ baked ziti and garlic bread
Wednesday ~ Pizza
Thursday ~ leftovers
Friday ~ burgers, tater salad and macaroni salad
Saturday ~ steak, baked potato and a salad

A favorite quote for today...

A peek into one of my days... Took a selfie with my Lici girl!

One of my favorite things... Firing up the grill for the first grill of the season. I love grilling. I know its a "man's" job, but I love it!!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ tonight out for dinner with my love
Tuesday ~ my oldest is stopping over for a bit, and I will be binge watching Homeland
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ grocery shopping, and maybe girls night at a friends
Saturday ~ working around the house and spending time with my hubby
Sunday ~ church and home to veg..... OR taking Trent out for his birthday

From the board room... From my Breads/Rolls/Muffins
