For Today...

Outside my window... hoots and hollers of teenagers across the neighborhood

I am thinking... how much I love that sound

From the learning rooms... I have been taking Italian lessons in preparation for a trip to Italy

I am thankful for... my husband...he is a good man

From the kitchen... I think I will make brownies tomorrow
I am wearing... pajamas

I am reading...  the John Lennon biography.  It has been a slow go...

I am hoping... that I have a bumper crop of tomatoes.  I planted multiple heirloom varieties this year; pink, black, red, and yellow.  Hoping the deer don't beat me to them. 

I am creating... a throw pillow for my office chair, an herb garden in pots outside my kitchen door

I am praying... for my family, that we are healthy and active

Around the house...  there are  fresh cut flowers from my garden

One of my favorite things...  conversation with my son

A few plans for the rest of the week... work in garden, study italian, go to driving range
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you

My Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Stella, loves to smile!


  1. Nice smile Stella. Great post good to hear from you and what is new in your life... If Lennon isn't keeping your attention - switch books - life's too short for boring books!

  2. Its not that it is boring, its just I have been so swamped. Thanks for stopping by.
