For Today... July 11th, 2016

Outside my window...Its still dark out. I am working today, so I am up earlier than normal.

I am thinking... that I wish I didn't agree to switch days for today. Oh well... let's crank out this 10 hour shift!

I am thankful... for the rain. We really need it.

One of my favorite things... listening to the rain.

I am wearing... a pink tshirt and yoga pants

I am creating... I am back to working on my hubby's afghan. I finished another afghan, that is my first Christmas gift for this year.

Up close and the border

I am reading (read) /watching (watched) / listening to... nothing at the moment

I am hoping... that the hubs gets this Friday off, so we can get his driver's license renewed then go have fun for the day.

In my kitchen... Menu for the week:
Monday ~ spaghetti/meatballs and garlic bread
Tuesday ~ burgers and potato salad
Wednesday ~ french toast, eggs and sausage
Thursday ~ pizza
Friday ~ fish, rice and corn
Saturday ~ out for the hub's bday
Sunday ~ not sure yet

In my garden... still nothing.... I am thinking that its not going to happen again this year

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday ~ work - and try to get some housework done in between calls
Tuesday ~ work
Wednesday ~ work
Thursday ~ mtg at the actual building
Friday ~ groceries, secretary of state with the hubs, then off for a day of fun
Saturday ~ the hub's bday, so what ever he wants to do, and dinner
Sunday ~ church, then probably back home to relax

A peek into one of my days... The youngest with his new purchase

A favorite quote for today...

Closing Notes: Thank you for stopping by and sharing a little bit of my thoughts today! I hope you enjoyed your visit!

  1. I am absolutely in love with your afghan. That takes real talent!

    1. Thanks! I am in love with it as well. I think I may have to make another one for myself! LOL Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Beautiful Afghan! and wow nice purchase!

    1. Thanks! It still shocks me that my baby is driving, and in a huge truck as that! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. The afghan is beautiful, I love the colors you chose. There's something about boys and pickup trucks! My son isn't happy unless he has a truck to drive. He's a father of two now, so he bought one with an extended cab.

    I love purple, too!

    1. Thanks! He has been wanting to upgrade his little Ranger for some time now, and finally did it. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. You DID get an early start today! Hope the shift went well.
    What a pretty afghan!
    I have to admire your organization, mapping out meals and your responsibilities for the week.
    Blessings -

    1. The Monday shift was a long one! Now I know why I like only working Tues/Wed/Thurs so much! I am a huge list maker, and feel lost without them. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. That afghan is beautiful. I love the color combination!

    1. Thank! I am so happy with how it turned out! Can't wait for Christmas now so I can give it to her! Thanks for stopping by!


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you liked your visit! Be blessed!
