a lot to get done...

for today...

Outside my window... are new neighbors across the greenbelt. They're working on a house that's been neglected for quite some time.

I am thinking... that this is my last few days with Jake living at home. And that he has a lot to do before he leaves next week.

I am thankful for... Jake and 18 wonderful years.

Last week at this time... I was uploading, editing, and posting my pictures from Alaska. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/sunshinepix/sets/72157606549835578/)

From the kitchen... it's pretty quiet there right now. I should figure out what to have for dinner.

I am creating... another batch of photos from Alaska. These were taken at a wildlife refuge that we visited. Some great pictures but the animals were behind fences, not out in the wild.

I am going... to go wake up Jake, because like I said... he has a lot to do to be ready for his move.

I am wearing... pajamas.

I am reading... Cold Tangerines and Jim Rearden's Alaska, Fifty Years of Frontier Adventure.

I am hoping... to also get a lot done this week.

I am hearing... Brody barking at the neighbors and The Today Show on TV (Olympics!!)

Around the house... there are a lot of piles of "stuff." Some needs to be put away, some will be part of Jake's move.

One of my favorite things... is the Olympics (see previous post)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Men's gymnastics wins bronze! Another amazing win.

The Simple Woman's Daybook originated at The Simple Woman.

Where did the summer go?????

Let us know what you think of Cold Tangerines! I finally finished The Shack Sunday night, now I've got a pile to work through! :)

I trust you are doing well with your son leaving. It can be hard.
I did not care for Cold Tangerines. In fact I only read a few of them and never finished the book.

Hurrah for Olympics! :D
I can't wait to see more of your pictures from Alaska. I looked at the ones you had on Flickr from before... so amazing!

YAY! You're reading Cold Tangerines! I love that book - and its message.

I think most of the time that I'm typing a blog post, I'm wearing pajamas. :)

Thinking of you as you get ready to say goodbye to Jake.

I keep thinking about Jake heading off to Bolder myself. What a fine young man he is. I've been reminiscing about him at different ages, various events, etc.

OK, I'll have to check out Cold Tangerines. I haven't seen it or heard of it except in your blog.

HOpe your last few days with Jake were wonderful! I have no doubt you all enjoying being together.

I love the Olympics, but they seem to be on too late and when I have too much to do...but I watched swimming last night. Misssed my favorite...gymnastics.
