I've been seeing this simple little beginning of the week journal going around blogland and have really enjoyed reading them. And this week I thought I'd join in. If you'd like to read more or join in visit The Simple Woman.
Outside my window: A bright sunny morning with no air movement at all. People taking their dogs for their morning walk.
I am thinking: I better turn the air conditioner on early today. It's going to be a really hot day. I'm also thinking I wish I not stayed up and watched Olympic volleyball until midnight because now I'm sleepy! And I'm also thinking I better get the microwave to Kay's moving pile so we don't forget it. Yes, my mind, it's going full speed already.
I am thankful for: friends that Kay already has in the city she's moving to. At least I know she won't be alone right off the bat. And I'm thankful for a lovely weekend spent with family.
From the kitchen: zucchini muffins with cheese and blueberries for breakfast
I am wearing: cream colored shorts with a sky blue tshirt. Will definitely be putting on a tank top later this morning as it gets hotter!
I am reading: "The Canopy" by Angela Hunt and "Love as a Way of Life" by Gary Chapman. The links are in the sidebar.
I am hoping: Everything that Kay needs and wants to take with her will fit in the two vans we are taking to move her.
I am hearing: the early morning traffic of people trying to get to work.
I am creating: a mess as we unload Kay's bedroom and try to sort through and pack up
Around the house: laundry to be done and packed up, packed boxes to be put in the garage, empty boxes waiting to be packed.
One of my favorite things: the cool smell of a summer morning before it gets too hot.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Plan a family bbq for Kay on Sunday so she can say goodbye to family, finish helping her pack. (Do you see a main theme running here? :vD), grocery shopping, more Olympic watching.
*Updated (because I just found out) to add an outing with my youngest to see our Singing Waiter (ff through the silly Hair Product commercial) who will be playing a short concert at our fair and another in his home town. Whoo hoo, he's singing for a top 4 spot tonight. Getting my dialing fingers ready!!
A picture thought I'm sharing with you:
The reality of her moving away for school, well, it's setting in. I can't believe it will be upon me in a short week. This is going to be a rough 7 days.
