Happy June 1st ~Daybook

FOR TODAY~ Happy June 1st My Blog Friends~

Outside my window...  It looks like another 90-degree day. The garden is growing and that is so exciting. I just can't wait for fresh veggies. Still have not found those pepper plants. 

I am thinking... I am going to be playing with Boston this time next week. 

I am thankful for... air conditioning~ woohoo!

From the learning rooms... I am officially calling summer break!  Let the fun begin. Friends spending the night.  Campfires by the pond~ making smores. Fishing in the paddle boat. Sunbathing~ working in the garden~ and just plain giving our minds a break and having some good old fashioned summer fun. 

From the kitchen... hmmm not sure yet. I am planning menus for the month of June. My daughter, son-in-love and of course BOSTON will be arriving next Monday for a two-week visit! If you can't tell I am overflowing with uncontrollable excitement. I have not seen my grandbaby in six months!!!! Which is way too long!!!

I am wearing... a sundress.

I am creating... Planning stages of a painted window for a Wedding present this weekend. 

I am going... to deep clean today. Plan menus ~I will be sharing many menus in the next couple of days as I plan our meals for the next three weeks. I like to make special meals when all the kids come home! My blog seems to be a great recipe file. 

I am reading...  The Mailbox ~the author has a wonderful blog. You can visit her here

I am hoping... to get my to-do list done today. 

I am hearing...  I am listening to Beth Moore's Podcast for today. She kicks me into gear! I love Beth Moore.

Around the house... it looks and smells like summer. I am planning on a lazy summer. REALLY!!!

One of my favorite things... Lipton Raspberry Tea with a tiny bit of sugar and lots of ice, a good book and laying in the sun~after the to-do list! (of course)

A few plans for the rest of the week: Baking and cooking some things that can be frozen for next week. Don't miss my Navajo Taco recipe below this post!

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...

  4. Hi Carrie,
    Haven't been on much lately...working myself to exhaustion outside getting ready for wedding! 12 days! Yikes! SO excited for you that your kiddos and BABY are coming for a great long visit. You will have a blast!! I'll bet you won't be putting that baby down. :) Can't wait to see pics of everyone. New book looks great...going to get started on Galen book you gave me soon. I just love the laid back feel of summer and the tea drinking as well!! We make a lot of sun tea! Will talk again soon!!! Keep up the relaxing and resting!

  5. Carrie, I got my pepper plants at Jamesport the same time I got my cumcumber, tomato, and lettuce. I don't know why but Jamesport plants are awesome!
    Have fun with your sweet grandchild, maybe I will see you at city wide garage sales in Savannah this weekend!
