It's Monday again and I'm happy to bring you this update!
For Today... August 18, 2008
Outside my Window... it's sweltering hot (+34 degrees C) and the sun is shining brightly!
I am thinking... how nice it is to have jars of fruit and jam all ready for winter.
I am thankful for... my Mom and the 75th birthday celebration that we surprised her with yesterday . She is so healthy and active, living in her own home on the farm, driving to judge at some fairs this past week and busy canning 50 jars of fruit (some for the grandkids who are away at university too).
From the kitchen... are fresh Lemon Blueberry Muffins with sugar tops - yum!!
I am wearing... black shorts, striped top and white flipflops.
I am reading... The Shack by William Young (I need to have it done by next Wednesday for book club!).
I am hoping... that we have a safe and restful few days camping with Naomi, Jerry and Meadow near Jasper
I am hearing... Nicole C. Mullen singing Call on Jesus
I am creating... not much, besides food stuff.
Around the house... recycling with an empty sugar bag and Pectin boxes, , more canning jars needing lids, and some cucumbers waiting to be made into relish.
One of my favorite things... to hear the voices of my children as we connect via phone calls.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... camping, hiking, swimming in the hot springs, relaxing beside a campfire.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
