My Day...

Yesterday was my day… my glorious Mothers Day. I spent it relaxing (and recovering) in my backyard. I was a victim of sunburn from the day before, so I nursed my wounds on my back patio in my NEW GREEN ADIRONDACK PATIO CHAIRS!!!!! Hubby and my great kids surprised me with them. I have been wanting them for sooo long. And the green… well the color is so perfect and bright and ME! You know how this girl needs color.

So, here I am relaxing in my chair. A self portrait of my day. Hubby joined me and we sat in the back with our eyes closed and the sound of the kids bouncing all over the trampoline in the background. It was perfect. For dinner, he grilled some skirt steak and we dined till we were STUFFED FULL.Oh the goodness!!!!! The day was just perfect!

I have been spending more time in my backyard, planting flowers and making it just as beautiful as the front. I find myself spending about 60% of my time out there. Sipping coffee in my screen porch, sitting near the fire pit on my back patio ( now that I have my chairs!!) and watching my garden grow. This week I will buy some more flowers to beautify it a bit more. Once its done I will be SURE to post pictures!!!!

We made our first pool appearance last Friday! The kids were so excited to jump in and get started. I found it just PERFECT for some bible study time under the umbrella. I continued my Esther study and came across some PROFOUND verses in Acts. I will share them with you at another time. It came at just the right time… just before our trip back to Shaw. God knew that I needed to hear His voice thru the sadness.

Only 15 DAYS until we begin our much needed summer break. This year is a small break… about 4 weeks but we will have another small break once the baby is born in October so we can’t slack too much.

In the meantime, we will enjoy those 4 weeks to the fullest!!!! Mornings by the pool, afternoon naps and evenings going for walks and playing in the yard. What could be better than that???
