Thursday's Meme

Outside my Window
I see rabbits playing chase.

I am thinking
I should get dressed and go workout.

I am thankful for
Jesus, my family, good friends, I have a house to live in, clothes to wear (you should be thankful for that for me, too!), food to eat and that there is a Target that's only 5-10 minutes driving distance from my house ;-)

From the kitchen
Chicken Putenesca (I recreated this from a dish I like to get at one of my favorite little restaurants, Stone Mountain Bistro)


Linguine noodles - 8 oz.
Olive oil - 2 T.
Garlic, minced - 1 tsp.
1 - 14.5 oz. can petite diced tomatoes
1 - 4.25 oz. can chopped black olives
1 jar artichokes (drained)
1 - 7 oz. can sliced mushrooms
1/4 c. capers
salt & pepper to taste
1-2 cooked, chopped chicked breasts

Directions for cooking:
Cook the linguine noodles according to boxed instructions. In a separate, large skillet, cook garlic in heated olive oil for about 2-3 minutes. Pour in the rest of the ingredients. Finally add the cooked & drained linguine noodles. Simmer for 15 minutes then enjoy!

I am creating
nothing at the moment but I have a long to-do list just waiting for me!

I am going
to Disney soon. The girls can't wait!

I am wearing
a long-sleeved OSU t-shirt even though it's August (somebody in my house likes to keep it really cold!)

I am reading
Homeschooling at the Speed of Life (real exciting, I know.)

I am hoping/praying
that Steve won't get layed off (he works for SemGroup who just declared bankruptcy) but if he does I pray that he'll find a great job that he loves. (Equal or better pay, stress-free and no travel would be nice, too!)

I am hearing
Third Day playing on my playlist. (Did anyone watch them on Jay Leno Tuesday night?!)

Around the house
the laundry - make it stop!!!

One of my favorite things
Waking up early and doing my Bible Study on my back patio. The dew is still on the ground, the sun is coming out, the rabbits are frisky, the birds are chirping - love it!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week
We are starting school MONDAY so I'm mostly focusing on getting our school room clean and organized, new posters on the wall, put the August calendar up, copies made & lesson plans ready to go!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…

Psalm 65:5-7 (New International Version)

5 You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness,
O God our Savior,
the hope of all the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas,

6 who formed the mountains by your power,
having armed yourself with strength,

7 who stilled the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
and the turmoil of the nations.
