Bright Friday Daybook

Outside my window...Kids cleaning up the backyard. To quote my husband, "It looks like a daycare, and the babysitter just got up and quit." :P But the day is bright and the birds are singing, and the morning glory is blooming. Feels like summer, though the heat is not as oppressive as it will be in a couple of months.

I am thinking...I'm overwhelmed and unmotivated.Lots on my plate this month, so I need to get myself on task.

I am thankful for...A nice, big ole' house to move into come May. It's so not cute, but is oh so what we need. MORE SPACE. MORE TOILETS. Thank God.

From the learning rooms...Reading lots of books, including some really beautiful California History books passed to us from my inlaws. James continues to enjoy puzzles, dinosaurs, and all things train. Dinosaurs + Trains = Jubilation. Philly boy is starting to talk. He says "Noooo",
"nurs nurs," "wow," "dada," and "mama."

From the kitchen...Ooh not sure yet. Take out? Maybe In-n-Out...Will call the husband to pick up! Although I am feeling so full. We've been eating so much food. I skipped breakfast this morning because I was still stuffed from dinner and dessert from last night.

I am wearing...Black tshirt, green pants, and turquoise and faux wood thongs from Target that my friend Jenny made me buy. ;)

I am creating...I should really just take the I am Creating line off when I do these. I am creating NOTHING. I'm a crafting loser. Although, I did create a little board book for my goddaughter for Pascha. My mommy helped me, though. Thanks, Mom!

I am going...Beach side for a day, God willing.

I am reading...Middlemarch STILL!! Ack. I'm so almost done. I just need a couple of hours to hunker down and get it done. I really do like it, though not as much as some other classics I have read. Hopefully a day at the beach will provide this for me...Although the newest Real Simple came in the mail yesterday, and is begging for me to pick it up, so we've got some competition! Book-wise, I plan to read something fun and light next...Any suggestions?

I am hoping...A friend of mine (the same one who MADE me buy my sandals) has a smooth birth and labor soon, and for a healthy bundle of pink, girly joy!!

I am hearing...Phillip waking up slowly, kids, airplanes, birds, cars.

Around the house...Chocolate and candy that needs to go away, flowers that are getting pretty sad looking, a dishwasher needing to be unloaded, and general messiness just about every where. Except my bedroom isn't too bad. Just trying to be reasonable here!

One of my favorite things...A date on Monday with my dearest husband. Yardhouse and a thrift store trip with no kids. Delightful.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Beach, church, that's about it, as the week is nearly over.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...
This kid will turn three next month. He's my Mother's Day gift that just keeps on giving! My Spring flower full of fun, and all things BOY. My Jamesy Boy.

Here's the original Simple Woman.

Three already? Wow!
And, Middlemarch is good, but it's long, I agree :) And fluff afterwards is always good. Thank you for your participation.
Congratulations on the move!
