Daybook

Outside my window…it is so windy.  All those plants I planted a few weeks ago…well, let’s just hope they survive this wind.

I am remembering…Easter morning at Grandma Nury and Grandpa Larry’s…a delicious breakfast, followed by a money egg hunt and confetti eggs…lots of smiling faces.  Happy Easter!

I am listening…to the sound of running water (perfect…considering the name of this blog!)…but for once it’s not me running water…Daxson’s washing an apple.

I am thinking…about my favorite bible verse.  Phil 4:6-7, but this morning rather than reflecting on the first half, which is usually my focus, I’m finding such peace in the second half…”and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”  Mmm, guard my heart and mind.  I like that.

I am going…to try to make it through the rest of my to-do list for the week…it’s our week off and I may have been a bit overzealous in making plans.

I am thankful…for time spent with Stephanie and Juancho.

Around the house…loads of laundry, bills to pay, and planning to be done.

In the refrigerator…finishing off the lamb cake (it’s amazing how long it takes this family to finish off a cake…with six of us, you’d think it would be long gone by now, but there’s still half left!), munching on plantains, and devouring strawberries (that were on sale for $1) like it’s nobody’s business.

I am wearing…gray checkered shorts and a salmon tank top.

I am creating…lots of random lists and ideas for next year.  Nothing inspiring yet.  Nothing written in stone.

We are preparing to celebrate…William’s birthday.

Someday I am going to miss…confetti egg wars (and the mess that goes along with them).

I am reading…Miracles and Massacres by Glenn Beck for book club and The Story of the Trapp Family Singers on my Kindle.

One of my favorite things…Saturday mornings when Daxson fixes french toast.  (It’s one of the kids’ favorites, too!)
