Anet’s Daybook July 18, 2010

Filed under: Daybook — anet smith @ 2:44 pm

Outside my window… hot, hot, hot

I am thankful for… Summer camp, time with hubby, my children coming home safely

I am wearing… navy tshirt, khaki shorts

I am remembering… the video we saw at Church about the Thomas family in Iowa. Powerful testimony of mercy and forgiveness. Here’s the news article about the Thomas’ award, you can google to find a video if you want.

Some plans for the rest of the week… an Usborne book party, football combine, soccer practice, away for the weekend

I am currently reading… nothing besides Solo – The Message devotional

I am hoping… to stop procrastinating on the laundry!

On my mind… dreading having to go mow at Dad’s after dinner. It is soooooo hot! We were gone, the person who was supposed to last week couldn’t because of the rain, both people I’ve called this week to mow haven’t called me back and now it’s been over 3 weeks! (Update: we made it, but not without a mower mishap. It was nice to have all four of us working. I was going to stop cutting the field, but hubby said keep going. It wasn’t quite as dark as I thought it was after I took my sunglasses off! lol)

Hearing…. the fan (and L making noises in it), keys tapping, the usual when I daybook

I am praying that……. Dad will be able to transfer soon. 6 mos. that he’s been 3 hours away is coming up in August

Pondering these words… Mercy is not getting what we do deserve and “The example he set, the standard he set of how to live your life strictly by doing what’s right — that’s the legacy we hope to continue of our father,” by Aaron Thomas.

From the kitchen… Burgers (for tonight) and chicken (for later) on the grill, 5 veggies (5 colors) also on the grill and cucumber sald. Ham and cheese quiche – 2 to freeze for us to have later when we’re busy and 2 for a friend who has several family members who were in a car accident (please pray for family and for my caregiver friends). I’m going to post the receipes for these last two soon.

Around the house… I finally got my desk and the office clean! Our new plan is to do some rearranging of my desk and filing cabinet to accomadate hubby’s things so we can give the boys the other desk to use.

One of my favorite things… watching lightning (from a distance of course). In all the places we’ve ever lived, it’s never been better anywhere than Oklahoma!

  1. That’s a great quote from Aaron Thomas. Thank you for sharing it. It’s always good to be reminded of what mercy is and the example of Christ.

    I agree that Oklahoma has the best lightening shows!

    When you are recipe sharing, would you mind sharing the chicken recipe for the chicken you served me when we were there. To refresh your memory, if needed, it was the night you made pork in the crockpot and I had chicken from a different night that you had available. It was SO good and tender and I have yet to master that skill. You made it well!

      Hubby says the chicken is a secret family recipe and you’ll have to come back to visit us in order to get it!

    Hi Anet, thanks for stopping by. I hope you get that job at the Christian school. Where do your kids go to school. I love your Shenandoah pics. Is that where you live? Lovely!
