For Today... May 9th, 2016

Outside my window...The sun is shining, birds are singing and its going to be close to 72degrees today!

I am thinking... about all that needs to get done in the house...its starting to overwhelm me!

I am thankful... for my boys....had a wonderful day with them yesterday!

One of my favorite things... having someone else cook and clean up for me.... (the boys spoiled me yesterday!)

I am wearing... a purple zip up hoodie, pink tank top, and purple yoga pants

I am creating... I just finished up an afghan, and will be starting another diaper/wipe holder. I made my first Fairy Garden as well - love how it turned out!!

I am reading (read) /watching (watched) / listening to... Right now I am binge watching Heartland. I need to find season 7,8,9, as these are not on Netflix.

I am hoping... that my hubby finishes up my truck, so I am not without it again this week!

In my kitchen... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ leftovers from the weekend
Tuesday ~ tacos and Spanish rice
Wednesday ~ eggs, sausage, hashbrowns and toast
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ blt's and potato salad
Saturday ~ going out hopefully
Sunday ~ not sure yet

In my garden... still trying to decided on what flowers and plants I want to put in for the landscape

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ housework, laundry
Tuesday ~ work
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ work
Friday ~ groceries, errands, working in craft room
Saturday ~ helping a friend for a bit on a grad open house project, then hopefully dinner with the hubby
Sunday ~ church, and then home to veg probably

From the board room... From my Kitties/Puppies/treats board. I want to try and make one of these for Lici, but with her name instead of "sit"
