Outside My Window... It is looking like a beautiful day lies ahead. I hear the birds waking up and the sun is beginning to brighten the yard.
I am thinking... I need to plan meals for this week as soon as my computer time is over.
I am thankful for… our Friday nights with our Rosary group and all the friendships that it is has fostered.
From the kitchen…. Last night I made baked tilapia with vegetables and it was well-received. I have wanted to add more fish into our meals and go a bit easier on the red meat.
I am wearing... blue fuzzy robe and p.j.'s
I am creating… Easter plans. We will be spending it with family in Pennsylvania and since we only have Saturday and Sunday to be with them, I want to make the most of our time there.
I am going… to the post office, Target and basketball tonight.
I am reading… Beverly Cleary books with Thomas
I am hoping…to get some yard work done today, but a slip down our back deck stairs has left my right shoulder quite sore, so we’ll see if I am up to it!
I am hearing… the beautiful sounds of the birds outside.
Around the house...we have begun something I’ve wanted to do for some time now…shopping at the Restaurant Depot, where you buy things in bulk at deep discounts. We share the food with another family if the packages are too large. I always get a feeling of comfort from my well-stocked pantry. We also finally bought a second, smaller refrigerator for the garage, so I can even stock up on eggs, produce and milk, if they have an expiration date that is far off enough.
One of my favorite things... rainy Sundays with nowhere to go, except Mass! Lots of things from the kitchen were created yesterday.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Science class, basketball, ballet, chorus, Defenders of the Faith club for Thomas, Lenten Soup Supper at our parish, a Pampered Chef party, two Masses in memory of my Dad. On Friday, our homeschool chorus is going to culminate their six-week program with a performance at our local nursing home. We are all looking forward to that. The children absolutely loved this singing group and we are looking into continuing it for another six weeks after Easter.
Here is picture thought I am sharing... This is from last year, but I loved Hannahs curls that day!
