for today... 

outside my window... 89°f and muggy- feeling like summer already!
i am thinking... a little over two months of school left.
i am thankful for... my dogs - constant friends and companions.
i am wearing... shorts, tank top, walking shoes, cap & ipod.
i am going...  stick to my walking routine.
i am currently reading... the 9th judgement by james patterson
i am hoping... gustavo finishes school with good grades.
on my mind... having my son away for 5 weeks during the summer months. :(
pondering these words... "we can't plan life. all we can do is be available for it"  -l.hill-
from the kitchen... coffee from my new coffee maker.
around the house... my dogs watching the squirrels out in the yard.
one of my favorite things... wednesdays when i get to watch 'survivor', 'modern family' and 'american idol' together with my son.
i'm creating... new word art.
a few plans for the rest of the week... get at least 2 things done from the to-do list!
from my lens: 

love to listen to my son play the guitar...
