Random things that occupy my mind. . .

Our backyard is beautiful. Just needs to be said. Because it didn't start out a beautiful yard.

Having cousins around the corner who spend most afternoons playing with my kids IN aforementioned backyard is true bliss.

Just pulled tooth from Daughter (#6) who is 6.

The blooming rose bush in the backyard is breathtakingly beautiful right now.

The house is mess.

But the laundry is done.

I miss the baby birds that grew up in the wreath on our front door.

The last one flew away last weekend.

I'm tired of washing all of the dishes by hand, but the kids actually think it's fun.

We hit Happy Hour at Sonic after Track and Field day and with a gift card that Son (#4) won, plus half off drinks, it only cost me $1.50 for 8 drinks. Amazing, huh?

I have a cold.

It's hot and sticky in our house right now. In spite of having all of the lights off and windows open and fans on.

But I'm not turning on the A/C.


Right now, anyway.

If you take a Claritin and two Benadryl, you won't be able to see straight. I'm just sayin'. And your eyes will still itch, anyway.

In spite of the allergies, I love Spring!

Everyone who participated in Track and Field won ribbons for 3rd, 2nd and 1st places.

I wasn't there.

Daughter (#5) was home sick (with the same cold I have) and missed track and field.

If you haven't read "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers, promise you will. Soon.

I have some seriously funny stories from the DC trip. But I fear no one else will find them funny.

Our TV went out.

(that wasn't funny)

The van is filthy dirty inside and out.

My cold is keeping me from being motivated enough to go clean the van.

I've discovered that I love LOVE "Aldi" grocery store. It's amazing!

All of my kids keep coming inside to tell me "things" and they all stink.

It wasn't bath night, but it is now.

Little Man has started giving kisses. But they are more like raspberries. And I love them.

The Coach will be home soon.

And thanks to my sweet bloggy readers, I won't talk his ear off the moment he walks in the door!

Thanks for listening.

Mat 6:31
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
Mat 6:32
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Mat 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Mat 6:34
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.

That is great! The summer stinks just cause it makes the kids stink and they have to have showers every single day.

We finally turned on the AC over night because the humidity was making the concrete (in the school room ) all sticky.

Love hearing about your day. Feel better soon - before spring is out.

Ugh! What a day! So sorry you are sick! We turned on our A/C this week. I think we had our humid meters pegged out from being on the beach for 4 days. Just sayin. I love your verses. Thanks so much for sharing!

It has been rainy and cool- not even thinking of AC yet, turned the heat back on tonight.
The leaves are just poking out, the rhubarb getting close to picking.
A few bird eggshells, empty, have been noted after a storm, no baby birds seen yet.
A purple bathroom, functional, needing more work, but all water parts now functioning...Blissful!
Dishwashwer swishing as I type, hubby did the dishes... sorry about yours, sounds like our second vehicle- one month and counting at mechanics.
Headache, achy joints, but no cold, sorry about yours and hoping medicine and some clean AC air will help! :)
Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to one of the best mothers I know! Someday (soon?) I'm gonna grow up and be like you... :-)

Turned the AC on today too! I'm too old to be hot and sweaty, for the sake of a few bucks anyway . . . Loved the post!
