This Is A Day For...

Coloring before breakfast with kids so sweet they make my teeth hurt .

Homemade waffles plated up in jammies and flip-flops.

Almond Joy brownies puffing up good and gooey.

Beds freshly smoothed.

The promise of not one, but two parties.

Morning emails detailing silliness, heartache and truth from a kindred.

Bible-school soundtracks.
(From the page to your heart God's word is where you are. Read it now and your life will change. It's exciting, surprising, each and every day, read it now and your life will change.)

Lego building.

Last-minute showers before dashing out for tacos with a friend.

Flowers on the island.

Grass-scented air drifting through the screens.

Holding the hand of my honey.



What is your day just begging for?

  4. Our morning sounds very similar. Lucas was building with legos this morning and both of the boys were singing that exact song at the top of their lungs! Beautiful!

  6. Sounds wonderful! Wanna trade? I've got laundry and vacuuming on my short list today. Then a funeral coming Monday...(sigh).

  7. I was planning on doing some gardening, but it's raining, hard. (I know you all think it rains all the time in Washington, but actually this is the first -much needed- rain in 33 days.) So I think I'll tidy up my sewing room and works on some projects I've been putting off since spring.

  8. coffee, fresh underwear, folding laundry that smells delightful, and five minutes of peace and quiet before jumping head first into chores...oh and a showing somewhere between 10 and 1 (because here, the relators are like cable guys or something). OH, and helping a friend move, and carne asada at another friend's house tonight. Yes. I guess we've got a lot going on. Wooo.

  13. that sounds wonderful and relaxing. I get to go to the movies tonight! It's so rare anymore that it is a real treat for me. I haven't gotten to visit for awhile... how are things going with your house?

  14. My house was begging to be cleaned top to bottom. The dryer vent was begging to be fixed, so it could stop dumping lint under the house (which my husband delightfully tackled). I wrote the name of each of my new 26 third graders on their desk tags for the start of school in less than a week away. I'm thawing steak to be grilled later, I swept the porch and knocked down abandon wasp nests...

  18. Read it now and your life will change oh oh oh. Read it now and your life will change. . .
    ;)

    If you ever see me driving down the road, bouncing, "dancing" and "raising the roof" you will know exactly what we are listening to.

    Blaring as loud as I can stand it.

    Hilarious.

Read it now and your life will change. It's exciting, surprising, each and every day, read it now and your life will change"...LOVE HEARING the little voices in the backseat while i drive!!

  20. I had a productive morning getting the usual stuff done...I brought in a few zinnias, too. The afternoon was reserved for a funeral service but not a sad time of mourning but the most amazing celebration of life (the gentleman was in his eighties and had lived a fun, full life)! I am embracing this life I've been blessed with and just loved your to do...to done list... And that desert sounds YUMMO! Have a wonderful weekend, Patty

  23. I'm going on a hike with my honey and seriously considering a stop at the grocery store to pick up Almond Joy brownie ingredients. Chocolate and coconut - a marriage made in heaven.

  24. Rushing off to the Farmers Market and the Grocery Store, getting home before the sky opens up and the rain gods send us some drizzly goodness, cooking up some comfort food and honey lemon blueberry poundcake to nibble on all day. :)
