Simply Tuesday

Outside my's still steamy out there, but hopefully this is the last day of excessive heat warnings. It's so bad that my glasses fog up when I walk out the door!

I am thinking...that I am really, really lucky that Elsa sleeps so well at night and that so far I've avoided the extreme tiredness of having a newborn.

I am thankful and the opportunity to see them next weekend when Elsa gets baptized.

From the kitchen...we made English muffin, bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches for dinner. Yum!

I am wearing... new shorts and an midpregnancy (but not maternity) shirt.

I am creating...thank you cards/birth announcements. Hope to get them in the mail tomorrow!

I am be gone much of the day again tomorrow. Today we made no less than eight stops, but tomorrow we have to make the trek to Forest Lake and back before work. Hoping to find something fun to do along the way....

I am reading...lots and lots of library books to the kids. I don't know about you, but I am of the books we own and avoid reading them at all costs, but give me a stack of books we haven't read yet from the library and I can read for an hour.

I am hoping...that the ice cream in a bag we're going to attempt tonight is worth the trouble

I am hearing...the AC. We don't have central air, but the three window units we have do a pretty good job!

Around the house...kittens. They are a month old now and are busy exploring.

One of my favorite things...helping my kids do their 'homework'. I bought them Brain Quest books at Sam's Club the other day and we are working on them every day to earn a trip to the Children's Museum. They are so motivated and it's really helped them stay on track with what they learned during the school year.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Tomorrow we're going to Forest Lake to pick up the family baptism gown that five generations of our family has worn. No plans for Friday except work, church on Sunday, and getting the house/yard/garage in shape for the baptism celebration next weekend.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

The kittens at 2 weeks...Hannah is the black one and the smallest of the bunch. Cody is the gray one and by far the biggest.


  1. They're so cute when they're kittens. By the time they've grown, you've grown attached and they're still cute to you (even when it's to no one else).

    Let us know about the ice cream in a bag-I'm intrigued.

  2. This heat has been awful, the humidity even worse! Glad you are staying cool even with all the running you have been doing.

    Boo loved the Brain Quest books and flash cards, her favorite ones ever. She would work on them for hours, having them done in the same day. Don't know where she got that from...

  3. My husband might shoot me for asking, but, ahem. Are you keeping all the kittens?
