Currently it's a beautiful 73 degrees and cloudy as it's been raining this morning.

Drinking some coffee and watching Heartland.

What I am creating:::
I have a blanket going with 1 1/2 more rows to go and then edging and I've started a corner to corner to try and mix things up a bit.
My simple pleasure:::
Scrubbing pots and pans steel wool. I don't know why, but I find it very therapeutic!
I don't know if this works for everyone, but it does for me. When I need to get motivated and get cleaning, I turn my music on (I use the rdio app on my phone and play it over our block rocker) and crank it up. Next thing I know, I'm dancing, singing at the top of my lungs and cleaning like crazy.
Looking around the house:::
The kids have some picking up to do. They have toys all over their room and living room floors. I have a very large pile of laundry to fold in the hallway, but other than that, it's nice and comfy. Now to pack up because we move the first weekend in July.
From the camera:::
My husband who is traveling this week. My sister and her kids continue to be in my prayers as well.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27
