Thanks to Peggy for hostessing the Daybook.

For Today. . .  Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Outside my window. . . a beautiful summer day.  Luke was washing his truck, and Abby and I sat outside under the maple tree watching him.  Blue skies, light breeze, just a perfect day.

 I am thinking. . . that today is my brother-in-law's birthday.  Happy Birthday, Mike!

I am thankful. . . that Dan has found a job that he really enjoys.  And that it is close to home and requires NO travel!

In the kitchen. . . menu for tonight:
French Dip sandwiches
Homemade coleslaw
Sweet potato fries
Popsicles for dessert

 I am wearing. . .shorts, tank top and flip-flops.

I am creating. . . a letter to a friend.

I am going. . . to the library this afternoon.  

I am reading. . . The Bride's House by Sandra Dallas

I am praying. . . for a speedy recovery for my mother-in-law.

I am looking forward to. . .going to a wine and cheese tasting with some friends this weekend.

I am hearing. . . Tim McGraw, Don't Take the Girl

I am learning. . . that some lessons are NEVER over.

Around the house. . . we are enjoying suppers on the back porch and letting go of projects for the summer.  

A favorite quote for today. . . 
" True generosity is acting on the truth -- not on the feeling -- that those I am asked to forgive are 'kinfolk,' and belong to my family.  And whenever I act this way, that truth will become more visible to me.  Generosity creates the family it believes in." ~~Henri Nouwen

Some of my favorite things. . .  discussing books, Snapple iced tea lemonade, the soundtrack from "Cider House Rules."

A peek into my day. . . 
best read so far this summer. . .

My screened-in porch was just power washed today. Your dinners on the porch sound like a good idea to me!

So glad things are working out, jobwise, for your husband.

Sandra Dallas is one of my favorite authors! I liked The Bride's House. Prayers for Sale and Whiter than Snow are two of my favorites of hers. Isn't she from around your way?

So glad for you guys that Dan is pleased with his job! Hoping the same for my hubby!!
