Monday Chat ~ A bit late

Here's my daybook for July 21, 2009:

Outside: It's sunny and the sky is clear. We woke up to severe thunder storms but they moved through fast; at least we had a few hours of good soaking rain.

In the kitchen: For dinner tonight we're having roasted fish, green beans with bacon and baked potatoes.

I'm grateful for: Our car was fixed for a really reasonable fee last week - that certainly was an answer to our prayers!

In my thoughts and prayers: My sister in law became ill and ended up in the ER on Sunday night. She's back home now and we're praying that all goes well with her tests and upcoming specialist appointments. It's times like these that make it hard living so far from family.

Around the house: I need to put laundry away, straighten the living room and kitchen.

On my bookshelf: Behind the Attic Wall.

I'm Creating: Christmas in July! I read a post about this tradition on another blog last week and the boys just became so excited that we thought we'd start doing this too. We're in the midst of creating our holiday and we plan to celebrate it next week.

This week: Well, it's a quiet week around our home. I am creating the Christmas in July holiday and hoping to get back into my crafts too. I plan on cooking a few new recipes and will let y'all know how they turn out.
