For Today...

the water lily in our pond

Outside my window... I can't believe my roses are still doing well, I've neglected them to death, (other than water they have not received even a constant weeding.) I went out to water, and the fish were swimming so close to this water lily I thought I must capture it, well by the time I snapped they ALL move under the leaf. It's not like I have a fishing rod or anything.
I am thinking...I need to REALLY prepare for the inevitable.
I am thankful for... my faith, I don't know what people who don't have a safety net, do.
From the learning rooms... how to wait.
From the kitchen...nothing, we're going out to eat.
I am wearing...my p.j.s. I really don't stay in them all day, I usually write my posts either really early and I don't move around too much (so my kids can sleep)or really late when it's all quiet. But I would if I could stay in my p js all day.
I am creating...just thoughts of creating for now...
I am going...to see my mom, she's in the hospital not doing too well.
I am reading...I'm on book #4, for the last week, my mom's been in the hospital and I've read while she sleeps. so, the list is... If Books Could Kill, Kate Carlisle,(makes you wonder if the pen is indeed mightier than the sword). ***3/4 stars, The Tower The Zoo and the Tortoise, Julia Stuart, (now I need to go to London)****99/100, Lift, Kelly Corrigan (this  was a pleasure) ***** and now the Outlander, Diana Gabaldon (I'm not sure yet but after this one I may need to go to Scotland via London).I believe these were all reviewed by Nise of Under the Boardwalk, and/or Jenners of Find your Next book Here. I know I have it noted down in one of my "books" but the house is such a mess I don't know where it is. Sorry if I'm wrong and it's really Zia or Alyce.
I am hoping...my mom will have a good day.
I am hearing...myself on the keyboard, ONLY even the cat is quiet.
Around the house...the house is a mess, and I don't care. I'm watering outside, just to keep things alive until I can get to them.
One of my favorite things... alone time. not too much though.
Oh for the good ole days when he'd hold still for a hugging and a kissing to death
A few plans for the rest of the week: not making plans this week, I will be welcoming my son home and hugging him and maybe even kissing him to death.

For Today is hosted by The Simple Woman's Day Book.

Isn't that just the way it goes when you try to take photos of animals?

I'm sorry to hear that your mom isn't well.
