Nicole's Daybook

Outside my window... The sun is shining. It's going to be another beautiful day!

I am thinking... about how I hit a wall this week with blogging, and I haven't felt in the mood to share any of my thoughts.

I am thankful ... for the absolutely gorgeous weather we are having!

I am wearing... black workout capris, an Eskimo Joes t-shirt, walking shoes.

I am remembering... a time in my life when I was that person that I am loathing so much right now.

I am creating... the wooden plaques for my mom's Mother Daughter Banquet at church. I started them last week, and worked on them more yesterday. They are coming together great!

I am going... to work on my To Do List today.

I am reading... Winter Garden, by Kristin Hannah.

I am hoping... that the next two months fly by. I am ready for our cruise!

On my mind... are all of the things I just haven't felt like blogging about.

From the learning rooms... the older kids are doing state testing this week. The little guys are starting to do all of those really fun "end of the year" and "spring" things: hatching chick eggs, watching the development of butterflies and lady bugs, Oklahoma Land Run days, outside days.

Noticing that ... so many people spend so much time on appearances that don't matter to anybody but themselves.

From the kitchen... I am going to use my Rosemary stalks from my herb garden last summer as skewers for kabobs tonight.

Around the house... are piles and piles of spring and summer clothes that need to go into closets and dressers, winter clothes that need to be sorted and garage sale piles.

One of my favorite things... is freshly potted flower pots. I love how alive the flowers look {before the harsh Oklahoma heat bears down on them.}

A few plans for the rest of the week... I've gotten back on a much-needed schedule this week. Starting my morning with a long walk has been great! Them I'm ready to tackle the projects of the day. I've gardened a lot this week, and even take some time in the afternoons to sit out in the sun and read a book. The evenings are spent sitting on the back porch watching the kids and puppies play. Today we need to fit in a trip to the ortho and Kyndal's tanning appointment. I have tons of laundry to get done and other housework. Then tomorrow I need to pack for us to leave for the weekend. Kyndal is going to prom with a boy in Missouri, so after getting nails done tomorrow afternoon we'll head out for a fun weekend.

Just a swangin'.

  1. I'm sorry that you've hit a wall with the blogging thing. Keep your chin up! Things will work out. Thanks for continuing to be an inspiration to me! :-)

  2. I think we all hit a wall with blogging! I've done it more than once and have only blogged a little over a year.

    I too have yard sale piles, but spring/summer clothes are done! We are finally working on our garden this weekend. God may give us peaches this year by the looks of things. I hope so.

    Have a blessed week!

  3. Adorable doggies. Have a good weekend & be safe.
