Thursday's Thoughts: Week of June 16, 2013


Making Mexican Chicken tonight for supper. This recipe has been served at every Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember in my family. Don’t ask why because I’m not sure what it has to do with turkey and ham, but I do know that it’s delicious!


I finished a great romance book last night…think Jane Austen…called Edenbrooke. The author’s second novel is coming out this summer and I can’t wait. Great writing and no sex scenes, just a good ol’ fashioned love story.


To Franklin and Bash playing in the background. Summer TV shows have started up, and I’m excited. Some of my favorite TV shows only have summer series (Rizzoli and Isles, Covert Affairs) Any summer TV series that are your favorites?


About what I need to finish around the house tonight. Folding laundry and our 30 minute family clean up being the two big ones.


Vacation Bible School. I haven’t even started getting ready and we start next Monday! Our theme is fun (county fair), our topic is great (fruits of the Spirit), but I’m stalled with being overwhelmed at all I want and need to do. Every year I swear that I’ll give myself a month to prep for VBS, but then I never do. Ugh.


Feel free to follow me on Pinterest using the button in the sidebar. I wanted to share some of my favorite finds this past week:

Homeschool: I’m planning on studying Botany next year with the girls for one semester and I found this fun demonstration of how plants grow toward light. I know that they will love this one!

Home: I found these cute truck pictures that you make out of your child’s foot print. Monkey would adore these in his room since he’s into all things with wheels. I might have to make them soon before his foot gets too big for the smaller canvas!

Cooking: The recipe I’m most excited to try this week is found here. It looks so light and delicious. Perfect for summer time Italian food.


Our local farmer’s market. I botched our garden again this year so I’m trying for round two after our summer trip back home. In the mean time, however, the people in our little town grow some delicious vegetables with great prices!


My high school graduating class. This past week one of my high school classmates began uploading yearbook pictures onto her Facebook page which started a huge walk down memory lane for some of us. It made me remember how much fun high school was for the most part and how much I wish I had appreciated it while it was happening. I’m the fabulous looking one with bangs on the far right side of the photo, fourth row up. J

Looking forward to a new week of productivity, loving, learning, laughing and cooking in the tree house,
