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 25 June 2012

Outside my window...it is cool, 63, and the sun is trying valiantly to come out.  After the heat and humidity of last week today is a welcome relief.  The birds are singing and flying about as if they have work to catch up.
I am thinking...about staying on task.  I used to be a very scheduled and goal oriented person.  In an effort to focus more on my husband and family I tried for years to lighten up.  Now I think I have swung too far in the other direction.  I am currently attempting to find a middle ground. 
I am thankful for...precious moments and the memories that come from them.  We had a couple of hours with Savannah and Kim yesterday.  The memories and pictures that we have left from that time I will hold forever.
From the kitchen....I don't know right now but I will come up with some clever alchemy that will result in nourishment for my family and satisfaction for myself.
I am wearing...green capris and a tan tee.
I am creating...home folks, home!!!
I am going...to work on my assignments until lunch.  Later I have to take MK into the city for an interview.  I don't know what she is going to do about driving when she finally gets a job.  Well God will provide, He always does.
I am reading...still trying to finish that novel for school.  I struggle with books that I have trouble following.
I am hoping...to get some creative time in this week.  I really need to let off some steam.
I am hearing....Layn playing with his toys, the stereo playing a Martina MacBride song, MK doing some cleaning, and the birds singing outside my window.
Around the house...the Monday cleaning has been done, the laundry is going, and everyone is doing their own thing.
One of my favorite things...the sense that all is as it should be.
A few plans for the rest of the week....school, holy hour, pick-up my sewing machine from the repairman, create, let it all marinate and repeat.
Here is a picture thought that I am sharing with you...
Ian sitting reading Layn a story last night.  These were some good memories for me when he was grwoing up.  I am so glad that he is doing the same for Layn.  This is what family is all about.
