Outside my window... rays of warm sunshine, deep blue skies and bird songs. Thank you, Lord, for Spring!
I am thinking... of ideal summer picnic recipes fit for a crowd. I'd really love it if you would share your suggestions with me :)
I am thankful...for a cute little home to call my very own. I've just been so very blessed by the Lord!
In the kitchen... enough Salvadorean Beef & Vegetable Soup, known as "Sopa de Res," to feed a small army.
I am wearing... a relaxing blue jeans jacket and my turquoise spring sandals.
I am creating... a homemade board game for a Grade 4 project (starring explorer Henry Hudson) with my younger son.
I am going... to endeavor to "stop", to be still, to rest - inside & out.
I am wondering... when is a good time to buy my boys a new pet and what shall it be? Though, none can replace their beloved fuzzy hamster.
I am reading... library books for beauty tips and event hosting ideas.
I am hoping... that my effort towards every accomplishment that pertains to my sphere brings a positive lasting influence.
I am looking forward to... an upcoming family road trip. Will hubby decide on Victoria or Oregon?
I am learning... how to balance: loving myself as well - not just loving others.
Around the house... hanging fuchsia-colored silk flower planters adorn our balcony.
I am pondering... to journal my thoughts and daily events as I used to when I was a young lady. Life goes by so fast, some memories are too precious not to make a note of.
A favorite verse for today... "Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth." (Psalm 50:2)
One of my favorite things... listening to my older son play the piano - simply brings so much joy to my heart <3
A few plans for the rest of the week: accomplishing a bit more spring cleaning each day and spending real quality time with my loved ones.
A peek into my day... a quick visit to my favorite bookstore before I head to the theaters for an 'epic' action movie with my 3 men :)

This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
