Outside my window . . . it is very humid. I strolled through the garden, took my grandoggie for a walk and retreated back inside for dryer air. I think I wore him out.
I am thinking . . . about what I need to do this morning to prepare for company that comes tomorrow.
I am thankful . . . for the time I will have tonight with family.
In the kitchen . . . I need to clean up the potting soil and seeds I used to get my onions and broccoli ready so I can get some baking done for the weekend.
I am wearing . . . a Texas A&M t-shirt and Capris with no shoes or socks.
I am creating . . . a menu for the friends and family that will be here tomorrow. I'm thinking I will open a jar of the pickles I put up earlier this summer.
I am going . . . to Houston this afternoon to have dinner with my husband, both sons, parents, brother, and sister-in-law. My oldest has been in town this summer with an internship, but will return to his wife in Boston on Sunday. This will be our last get together.
I am wondering . . . if I will need to start laundry before I get into the kitchen to bake. The answer is probably yes.
I am reading . . . Tripwire by Lee Child. Yes, still. I have not made as much time for reading (or sewing) as I would like.
I am hoping . . . that my surviving plants in the garden (Cucumber Mosaic Virus wreaked havoc this week) will produce a few more yummies before their time is finished.
I am looking forward to . . . dinner with family tonight, dinner with friends tomorrow, and a restful Sunday.
I am learning . . . that sometimes there just isn't anything you can do to make things different from what they are, and that is okay.
Around the house . . . my floors are covered in grandoggie paw prints. He loves chasing birds around the property and stirring up rabbits, lizards, and anything that moves, then coming in with a little outdoors on his feet. No worry. I can mop later.
I am pondering . . . what I can prep now to make things go together quickly on Saturday in the kitchen.
A favorite quote for today . . ." God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."
One of my favorite things . . . spending time with my sons and seeing how they have changed, but also remembering how things were.
A peek into my day . . . a little kitchen time, a little laundry time, a little driving time to Houston, and little family time this evening. It will be a full day.
I am sharing this post on . . .
