Outside my window...the sun's not up yet, but it's promising to be a beautiful, sunny 80 degree day here in the Valley...the mountains are just beautiful in the distance. I love living here!
I am thinking...that today will be another good day to work outside pulling weeds and mulching the flowers. I have a deadline...company's coming next weekend!
I am thankful...for a good night's sleep after yesterday's yard work.
In the kitchen...Thursdays are bread-baking days for Hannah, so the kitchen will be smelling yummy.
I am wearing...a very paint-stained navy skirt and top...my usual work outside clothes.
I am creating...nothing at the moment. I'm waiting for this fabric to arrive next week. I have a deadline for this, too!
I am going...to pick Strawberries here this morning with Sarah. We haven't been all season, so we're looking forward to fresh berries...over pound cake and whipped cream.
I am reading...a free issue of Organic Gardening magazine.
I am hoping...this Saturday will be perfect weather for continuing to paint the fence. Severe thunderstorms are predicted Friday which may mean my main fence-painter will be getting power restored instead of painting--I hope not.
I am looking forward to...my sister coming to visit the end of June. She wants to go to Farmer's Market to check out the girls' booth while she's here.
Around the house...basket-making, bread-baking, bean planting, beekeeping, and hole digging for red hot pokers I received for Mother's Day.
A favorite quote for today...
“Hospitality fleshes out love in a uniquely personal and sacrificial way. Through the ministry of hospitality, we share our most prized possessions. We share our family, home, finances, food, privacy, and time. Indeed, we share our very lives. So, hospitality is always costly. Through the ministry of hospitality, we provide friendship, acceptance, fellowship, refreshment, comfort, and love in one of the richest and deepest ways possible for humans to understand. Unless we open the doors of our homes to one another, the reality of the local church as a close-knit family of loving brothers and sisters is only a theory.”—Alexander Strauch, The Hospitality Commands
One of my favorite things...going on a day-adventure!
