There's no place like home.

There's no place like home.
Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

The Simple Womans Daybook 21 May 2012

Outside my window...(I should amend that) I am sitting outside in Layn's play yard so I am outside the window.  The sun is shining with a nice breeze blowing.  The weatherman is calling for temps in the 80's with high humidity and thunderstorms later in the afternoon.  Right now Layn and I are enjoying the late spring weather.  Since it warmed up we have been eating outside and generally just enjoying all of the sunshine and warmth that we can.
I am thinking...about the future and decisions that are looming on the horizon to be made.  My computer died so I need to make a decision about quitting school for awhile until I can get a new one.  My sewing machine is broken yet I need to find a way to earn money to fix that as well.  I suspect that God is trying to give my arthritic knees a workout. 
I am thankful for...the family that supports and sustains me.  I know that whatever decision that God leads me too my husband and children will support me in them. 
From the kitchen...I think I will default to tacos for tonight's supper.  Since the day is supposed to be warm I can cook the taco meat on the grill and avoid heating up the kitchen.  I asked Matthew for a suggestion and all he could say was "good food" I hope that tacos fill the bill.
I am wearing...blue denim skort and grey tank. Since I am home all day I thought I would go with the scruffy look.
I am creating...a place of safety, peace, and learning for Layn.
I am going...nowhere!!!!  Today I will concentrate on cleaning up little messes hear and there.  The hop vines need to be staked and trained.  The lawns still need to be finished (lawnmower issues!) and the seedlings need to be trimmed around.
I am reading...Plato's Republic
I am hoping...that prayers for patience will be answered.
I am hearing...Layn in the sandbox making tractor noises, some farmer over the hill working ground, MK on the deck hanging out her laundry, and Archie yipping at something in the tall grass behind the shed.
Around the house...all is neat and clean and rather likely to stay that way since everyone tends to dwell outside at this time of year.
One of my favorite things....sitting in the evenings with my husband enjoying the view across the valley.  Matthew set up the fountain last night and it was nice to listen to the water while we chatted about the day that had passed.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Thursday is my last class for the year at church.  I have to remember to bake cupcakes for the kids and wrap gifts.  Friday Layn and I are going to the Memorial Day parade in town.  I need to call out family treasures and see if they would like to spend some time with us this weekend.
Here is a picture thought that I am sharing wtih you....
Last week MK, Alex, Layn and I walked up to the playground.  It took a few times but Layn learned to love going down the slide.  He concentrates very hard before he finally lets go and slides down.

How I am going to miss Uncle Matt's out bursts of silliness.  I am so glad that I have managed to capture a few of them for the time when he is gone from this house.
