Outside my window…grey and lush. Looks like it could rain. Again.
I am thinking…about Mother's Day. We had a delightful cook-out yesterday with my mother and my sister and her family. The rain actually held off until evening.
I am thankful for…a clean house and a fridge full of leftovers. I will not be doing too much other than school and laundry today!
From the kitchen...Banana nut muffin and yogurt with raspberries.
I am creating…a hooded pullover for Dominic of the softest cotton in colors that remind me of the Caribbean.
I am reading… My Daily Bread. Easy to digest as it is served in small bites. It always seems to give me what I need each day.
I am hoping…for a good week and an end to the rain! Luckily we have a long gardening season here, but it is getting late and the ground is too saturated to work. I am also tired of having kids indoors all day!
I am hearing…birds. Gabriel is up, but for some reason, everyone else is still asleep.
A few plans for the rest of the week…I want to look at Marilyn's blog and try some of her herbal recipes; I am thinking about trying my hand at cheese again since we are drowning in milk; and Sebastian's birthday is on Friday, so I have gifts to wrap and on Thursday a Chocolate Cheesecake to bake.
The children are...slowly rising. Una came in to say good morning, Adrian is in our bed, having had a bad dream last night. Dom must be asleep or I would certainly hear him!
A Picture Thought: My Mother's Day gift. In lieu of a clothesline (it is too wet to put one in), Bret surprised me with this.
