My Daybook for Today~ April 20, 2009

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW: Very Windy, Sun and then rain, and now the sun is shining again..Yeah!!
I AM THINKING: How greatful I am for my sweet hubby. We celebrated 22 yrs. Saturday!
FROM THE LEARNING ROOM: Water Vapor, Capitalization, finishing the last of our state capitals.
I AM THANKFUL: For my family and all the blessings he has given us!
FROM THE KITCHEN: Spaghetti for supper :)
I AM WEARING: a grey, black and white skirt with a red v-necked shirt
I AM READING: 4-H book, trying to figure it all out so I can turn things in by May
I AM HOPING: To get our garden tilled..if this rain doesn't stop soon I don't know when we are going to get it going. This also falls under my prayers..
I AM CREATING: Not much this week..my husband IS building me a brick mailbox as an anniversay present. It will have planters on both sides. So, as soon as he gets it up, I am planting something pretty in it. Probably some purple petunias!!
I AM PRAYING: For some dry weather so our garden can be tilled..also for my Mom as she has been in poor health.
AROUND THE HOUSE: trying to finish some of the painting that has needed to be done since we moved in, in the fall. Everything has to be primered and the primer bothers my youngest that has Tourettes. Now that the windows can be open, we are hoping to get some more done!!
ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: Watching the birds outside..we have 2 different kinds of woodpeckers, titmouses, chickadees, redbirds, brown thrashes, bluejays and yellow goldfinches, which are my favorites!!
A FEW PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK: Really tackle the Math with my youngest..I would prefer to not be on it all summer long. It's been slow going this yr. He's been sick a lot! Planting some more flowers outside (hopefully starting the garden)
Forsythia Bush Pictures, Images and Photos
The picture I'm sharing is of a Forsythia bush. My aunt gave me and my husband a bush for our 22nd anniversary this weekend. She also gaves us a beautiful hanging basket full of Diamond Frost..it's gorgeous!!

Beautiful bush!! I've enjoyed reading your daybook.

In response to your comment, I buy my Lady Londonderry tea from an online store called The English Tea Store :)

I hope that the link works, if not, I will go back to my post and make the name of the tea linkable in the post.

Congratulations on 22 years.

Blessings each day said...

Wanted to leave a comment yesterday but my computer and keyboard were not speaking to each other (this has happened since I got this computer two years ago, but it only happens evey 16th or 17th time, so I put up with and re-boot when I have time) when I had the time!

Anyhow...many Congratulations on such a special celebration! Nowadays, making it to even 5 yrs is saying something (but that's sad).

Hope you'll take pictures when Your hubby is through with your beautiful new mailbox!!



p.s. now you've made me hungry for spaghetti!
