For today...

I know Leslie hates when I do memes but, oh well.Sorry Leslie. Here it is it's hosted by the Simple Woman's Day book.
Outside my window...it's a beautiful, sunny, warm day, not hot, just nice
I am thinking... this house is a filthy mess
I am thankful for... no one being home (except me) to see this mess
From the learning rooms... I learned today that gardening is really hard on my hands.
From the kitchen... feta stuffed jalapeno peppers.
I am wearing... crop pants in hot pink and a pink stripped top
I am creating... a list of must dos
I am going... to sit down and rest my weary body
I am reading... Jane Austen, Mansfield Park
I am hoping... it doesn't rain tomorrow
I am hearing... silence, it is GOLDEN, and the occasional smashing go glass, my neighbors are doing something which I cannot explain.
Around the house... it's all quiet, I should be cleaning, but my body is so sore for gardening
One of my favorite things... friends who work well together
A few plans for the rest of the week: a pleasant visit with friends from far away

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...here's my son, shipping off to boot camp. Look at the load he's carrying, I always made sure they had great back pack so as not injure their backs, I guess the army doesn't care.

Glad you're having the nice weather as well! Enjoy the quiet the 'mess' will wait. Oh Irene, what a brave mother seeing your son go off to boot camp!
RYC: We're about two hours from Boston, an easy day trip that we sadly don't do often enough.

Hi Irenka
Your comments do not refer to your 33 Wedding Anniversary. Thirty-three years ago we were roasting as Irene and her lovely husband were driven by horse and carriage. Irene I think you should post the picture. Happy Anniversary to you both.
Handsome looking son and godson. What a lovely man he is!!! Mitch and Alice

Dear Anonymous: I've been married only 31 years. June 16, 1979. If your wedding books were up to date you could have easily flipped through and found that number.

I liked your thoughts for yesterday. I can relate to quite a few.

Good luck and thoughts to your son.
