Outside my window . . . the air is still with no breeze and the sky is a clear blue. It's going to be a hot one.
I am thinking . . . how exciting it is to watch my vegetable garden grow. Soon, if all goes well, I'll be looking up new recipes for squash.
I am thankful . . . that my husband is happy and healthy. Two wonderful things.
In the kitchen . . . a loaf of white bread is rising, butter is coming to room temperature to bake cookies, and the dishwasher is empty.
I am wearing . . . a new pair of Capri's and a new shirt I bought. I don't buy clothes often, but I was tired of my husband's T-shirts.
I am creating . . . nothing right now. I am enjoying the things I have already accomplished this summer with my garden and my home.
I am going . . . to enjoy my restful Wednesday.
I am wondering . . . if I need to add lime to my lemon tree. I seem to have a one track garden mind these days.
I am reading . . . Tripwire by Lee Child. Book #3 in his Jack Reacher series.
I am hoping . . . that we can get some more much needed rain next week. 20% chance isn't much, but it's not zero.
I am looking forward to . . . having some time to sew this week. I have been so busy with other things that my Dear Jane quilt is suffering neglect.
I am learning . . . all about organic gardening, soil composition, natural control of pests, and compost.
Around the house . . . I am enjoying the freshly mopped floors. Clean floors always make me feel good.
I am pondering . . . what flowers to plant from seed for my fall cut flower garden. It's about time to get the new bed in the garden so I can sow in August.
A favorite quote for today . . . "Gardening is a matter of your enthusiasm holding up until your back gets used to it." unknown. My enthusiasm is holding up just fine.
One of my favorite things . . . checking on my garden every morning while there are still shadows on the beds. I love the way the plants look so refreshed after a night of relief from the sun and heat.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . getting a list together of things my husband will need for his new apartment. We have had a life changing event around here with him taking a new job and a new challenge in a new city. He will become a weekend commuter in just a few weeks.
A peek into my day . . . lunch with a good friend and a relaxing evening with my guilty pleasure, the television.
I am sharing this post on . . .
