Outside My Window ... a gray, wet morning: rain drips from the telephone wire, giant puddles form in the road, two seagulls soar overhead.
***
I am thinking ... about VBS this morning: how on earth are we going to do water games *inside* the church??? (ETA ~ We didn't; we had them outside - brrr!)
***
I am thankful ... for rainy days. Even if it cramps our style, the earth needs this tall, cool drink of water. 
***
From the kitchen ... Supper's still a mystery to me, but I think I'll make oatmeal-chocolate-chip cookies this afternoon.
***
I am wearing ... yellow cotton pajamas - it's still very early!
***
I am creating ... Still working on that weekly planner for the new academic year. Once I get that in order, I'll turn my attention back to the Christmas planbook.
***
I am reading ... Breaking Dawn for the second time since Saturday. The first time I rushed through - too eager to know the ending to absorb all the details.
***
I am hoping ... for a good mail day. I'm expecting a few favorite magazines this week. :)
***
I am hearing ... Dripping rain, a crow's cawing, Bill typing on his laptop, my cat's purring, a songbird in the shrubbery.
***
Around the house ... Wednesday is kitchen day: clean trash bin, wipe floor, scrub sink and counters, go through fridge and cabinets - make menu for next week and a shopping list for the weekend.
***
One of my favorite things ... the smell of a warm summer rain.
***
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: ... VBS, Bill's vacation days, a planning meeting with my homeschool support group, a night out with my friends to chat about Breaking Dawn.
***
Here is a picture thought I am sharing ...

I hope you all have a wonderful day!
