Outside my window...it's cool outside. The weather was perfect all weekend. I am hoping that it stays nice this week. We don't mind the cold, just please, no rain!
I am listening to...Little Einsteins. Goose loves this show. He loves to travel the world with Rocket and company.
I am wearing...burnt orange workout shorts and a black t-shirt. We are getting ready to go to the gym.
I am thankful for...the chance to spend time with my dear friend. Tonja and I clicked from the moment we met at a play group. She find friends wherever she goes, me, not so much. Since our first meeting, we have added two more kids a piece. BH and her second were born two days apart in the same hospital. I love Tonja and her family and so did my husband. This was the couple we could do stuff with...then they moved two months after our sons were born. I hadn't seen her since and quite frankly, since our last kids arrived over a year ago, we haven't spent too much time on the phone. It's like they did us in! Tonja was in town this weekend, and I had her all to myself for almost two hours! It was the best. Of course, I just miss her more, but I am so thankful for the time I did have with her. Lance and I are thinking a Michigan game might be in order for the fall.
I am thinking...that I hate the number five. I used to love it, but not anymore.
I am creating...plans to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and St. Joseph's feast. The boys have been reading nonstop about these two saints and are ready to celebrate!
To live the liturgy...Lent was going good, now it's just going and that's it. Does it count if you blindly go through the motions?
I am hoping...to buy some new plants for the planters I got for Christmas. I have four empty pots right now! Five, if you count the big one with a dead plant in it!
From the kitchen...I have some ideas for the week, but nothing set. I guess I need to get going on that. I think I had my fill of eating out this weekend. I have given up on trying new meatless meals on Friday. Every Lent I have these grand plans to make new dishes, but end up doing the EXACT. SAME. THING. So, I am not going to try anymore. These are our options and I'm fine with it: quesadillas, eggs and biscuits, pancakes or go find some fried shrimp.
On keeping home...I think it's time for major overhaul.
One of my favorite things...I have four: ages 14, 5, 3 and 1.
A few plans for the rest of the week...
- the park
- get together with the twins
- the rodeo carnival
- get together with the Culpeppers
- St. Patrick's party maybe
A picture thought (or two) I am sharing...
