Friday:   Stromboli 

Saturday:  Dinner with family

The weather outside is:::: It's been crazy.  Mid-90s, humid with crazy, wild thunderstorms or low 80s and sunny.  Yo-yo. 

On the breakfast plate this morning:::: No breakfast. 

As I look outside my window::: Sunny and pretty today. 

Right now I am:::: Still getting over a stomach virus. 

As I look around the house:::: There is always something to do. I never catch up completely. 

TO DO::::  
Grocery shopping
Vacuum and wash car 
Laundry X3
Sweep living room 
Watch "Outlander" 
Water flowers
Plant new flowers
Refill bird feeders 

Currently reading:::: I've been reading the Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin.  Also re-reading Gone with the Wind. 

On the TV today:::: Charmed, Outlander, The Dead Files. 

I am thinking.. that I am tired!

I am thankful...for my family.

One of my favorite air conditioner!  LOL 

I am wearing...Jean capris, a black tank top and a black and white t-shirt. 

I am learning... that it is hard to be the mean mom - but sometimes it is a necessity. 

In the schoolroom... Still light summer schedule.  We will start 11th grade next month! 

In the garden... Lost one plant this week - bought 3 more!  lol  As much as I watered it - just wasn't enough I guess.  

A moment from my day... Paying for groceries - the young man cashier told me MUCH more than I ever needed to know about the Gem and the Holograms movie! 

Favorite blog posts or pins from this week::: 

Favorite picture from the camera: 

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
Wow.  Everyone needs prayer.  We Christians have GOT to work together because our nation OUR NATION - is falling apart.  If we don't do something - and SOON - the downhill slide of our country will just snowball until it is completely unrecognizable as the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.
