It's March (and Lent)! - Daybook Post

Outside my window ~

What I am thankful for ~

* Texas blue skies

* natural vitamin D (thank you, Mr. Sun!)

* ice cream trucks that announce their arrival with that old-fashioned music

* new sidewalk chalk

What I've lined up to read ~

Here are Other Lenten resources we use if you are interested.

From the school room ~

This is our last week of the 3rd quarter.  They have been working hard and will enjoy a week off for spring break.

PE - I just signed Miss Mabel up for 8 weeks of ice skating lessons.  She is SO excited! :)

I am praying for ~

* my mom and a friend (with a novena to St. Peregrine)

* my husband (with the novena to St. Joseph)

Around the house ~

This is happening on Wednesday!

We hired painters to do our entry way, living room upstairs and downstairs, staircase, and all the hallways.

All the same color and it is just to freshen the walls up.

This little lady LOVES to sunbathe.  She knows all the "hot" spots in our house throughout the day as the sun moves.

From the kitchen ~

I just uploaded this recipe for Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup.

I am listening to ~

The planes flying in overhead.  We live in the flight pattern for DFW airport.

    And Patty...the ice cream truck picture made me so happy this morning!

  3. The thing I miss about our old neighborhood-the ice cream truck and the sweetest lady who drove it.
    We're Twenty-one Pilot fans, too.:) We had a similar experience last July on Ceci's birthday.

  4. Love the photo of your puppy in sunglasses! We'd love to have an ice cream truck stop of the disadvantages of living out in the country.
