For Today - August 19, 2011

Outside my window….the heat and humidity are back and I’m not happy about that. We desperately need rain and I need some cooler temperatures.

I am thinking… about the start of school on Monday and how that will change my morning routine. The kids’ school drop off times changed and we need to figure things out…

I am thankful for…the stability my family enjoys due to our jobs and other blessings in our life. Even with the recent stock market downturn and economic fears, we are in good shape.

From the kitchen…there are lots of leftovers, but the kids have requested pizza for dinner. Since it’s Friday, I’ll probably give in… and eat a salad myself….

I am wearing… blue jeans and a lavender tee shirt. I’m longing to wear a sweater, though.

I am creating … nothing at this time. I need to finish my friend, Nancy’s baby’s pictures and then start on another photo book.

I am going…to buy new running shoes soon. My current pair is showing a lot of wear as they have probably exceeded the 500 mile mark.

I am reading…nothing right now, but hope to acquire Cutting for Stone from the library. It’s our book club’s current reading selection.

I am hoping… Caesar’s eye continues to heal. It’s looking so much better now, but has relapsed before. I am also hoping for some rain – the cornfields could really use it.

I am listening to … Gustav Holst’s Jupiter – such a wonderful, moving piece.

Around the house… the weeds have taken over the garden. We really need to put down mulch next spring (notice I’m not advocating we do anything this year…that’s what we do best – procrastinate!)

One of my favorite things…new photography iPhone apps that I have been playing with – mainly apps that combine several pictures into a diptych, triptych or mosaic.

A few plans for the rest of the week…our Book Club meeting tonight (always a fun time), and a long run tomorrow morning (hoping for 8 miles). I also need to purchase tickets to see Sara Bareilles at a local club – so excited she’s coming back. Of course, we’ll head out to the stable to visit Caesar and then there is all that normal weekend stuff to do around the house. We’ll be busy Sunday night, gearing up for the first day of school on Monday. It’s the end of summer!

A picture to share:
August Sky

The prairie sky about a week ago – pretty typical this time of year. I think we are lucky to be surrounded by such beauty.
I wish you a wonderful Friday.

beautiful photo Shirley! I am looking forward to fall, but I don't think it will be here in Southern California for a while. *sigh* Thanks for sharing your day today. =)

Oh - you can take some of my rain if you want, it has been pouring down like crazy! I think it will end soon though, and I need to get out in the garden a little so I fingers crossed!

Beautiful sky! :-)
