May 23, 2010

Today I'm just thankful to have made it through the day.  Today it was my turn to do the "Call to Worship" at church again.  I ALWAYS get nervous when I have to stand up in front of a group of people (even if they ARE friends and there are only about 10 of them sitting in the pews.), and today was no different.  My only consolation . . . I have a podium to stand behind.

After we got home from church, I fixed lunch for the kids . . .

we all changed into shorts and t-shirts . . .

I opened all the windows, turned on all the fans, and we enjoyed a leisurely afternoon of doing NOTHING.

It was so hot and muggy today!  The wind chimes out on the deck didn't even whisper a sound.  The air is just heavy with hot, steamy moisture.  And to think . . . just a few days ago I was still wearing sweatshirts around, because I was cold!

That sun I've been longing for for several weeks has come back with a vengeance!  I guess I should watch what I wish for.  lol

This afternoon, Eli and Bayleigh both played quietly, and I think they just enjoyed each others company.  It's so nice when they get along.

I like days like this, when I can just sit and play with the kids and soak up their company.  Their little minds are amazing.


  1. Sounds like you had a pleasant Sunday. Love your 4th photo with the sun rays streaking through the trees.

  2. I'm sure you did well at church. I'm also always nervous when I have to stand in-front of an audience and speak.

    Your little fella seems to be enjoying his puzzle and did I mention how much I adore the sunshine between those trees?

  3. Thank you both for the kind comments! I had a very pleasant Sunday. ;)
