My friend Karen does this writing prompt all the time, and I really enjoy it. So I decided to start doing it myself. 🙂

FOR TODAY

Outside my windowWind, wind and more wind. I’m getting a little tired of all the wind.

I am thinkingOf so many things right now my head seems to spin sometimes. 🙂

I am thankfulFor my husband who works hard everyday to provide for his family and understands when I’m not consistent in the kitchen (see next point lol).

In the kitchenI made ribs this week and we had a taco night, other than that I haven’t been to consistent in the kitchen.

I am wearingPurple workout shorts and a white shirt. And no, I’m not working out today, just being lazy and comfortable.

I am creatingNot as much as I would like. I’ve been reading a lot, but the books I’m reading aren’t on audio, so no reading and crafting right now. 🙁

I am goingNo place today. This coming week normal things, church, library, eye doctor.

I am wonderingAbout so many things right now, but one I will share. I’m wondering if now is the time the Lord has for us to buy our first house! 😀 We have always rented, and we tried buying a house about 4 years ago, and that fell through. We’ve been praying and talking recently and decided to see what we could get pre-approved for. We did that yesterday, and were pleasantly surprised by the amount. Still not sure if we’ll find anything we like in the areas we want for that amount, but it’s a step. We have a dear friend, who is our realtor, starting to look for us. I guess we’ll see if this is the direction the Lord has for us. I’m excited and nervous all at the same time. We were so disappointed last time, I just don’t want to go through that again. But it’s all in the Lord’s hands.

I am readingWinner Take All by T. Davis Bunn.

I am hopingThat there are houses in our price range that will work for us. And that we get to start looking soon. I always like looking at houses.

I am looking forward toPossibly setting up a new house. I hate packing, but I love setting up new homes.

I am learningTo be patient and wanting what the Lord wants for us. It’s nothing I’m perfect with, but it’s what I’m learning.

Around the houseNot much at the moment. Normal summer days, lazy and fun.

I am ponderingMany things, but I guess most of my ponderings are on possible houses for us.

One of my favorite thingsOne of my favorite things this week was celebrating Father’s Day last Tuesday for hubby, on his day off. It was a great day, and we all had such a good time.

A few plans for the rest of the weekThe biggest thing is cleaning out our garage. It’s a whole day, all four of us affair. We never got it cleaned up last year, so there is a lot to do this year. I also think it would be great if looking at some houses became part of our week.

A peek into my dayI’ll be making our family meal for lunch today, Paul has a late shift. I’ll also work today, maybe play on my website here, and of course read. 😉

No new pictures, so I’ll share one from our anniversary:

    That is very exciting news. I remember last time. I will pray that the Lord’s will is clear to you in this matter. No harm in looking! I am hoping we can buy in a couple of years or less. I am glad you are trying out the daybook format. I always enjoy reading them.

  • Mom

    I like the daybook set up. That is good. I might have to try it. Excited with you about the possibility of buying your own home. I’ll be praying. God will lead you. Have a great weekend. Love

    I use to do the Daybook and enjoyed it, but than my life became too… boring, so I quit. Your suppers sound yummy; and how exciting about the prospect of buying a house. Even though we are in a very nice home, I still love looking. I look online all the time. Part of me would like to find some fixer-upper that we could afford no-mortgage, but we have invested so much time and memories here and we do live in a wildlife paradise, not to mention having 2 people in our family that don’t like change, so a move may never happen… or at least maybe not while the girls are still living with us. I wish you all the best!!!

    I enjoyed your Daybook, and it is the first time anyone has linked back to me in all the years I’ve been blogging. Thank you!

    I hope that you are able to buy a house. One that suits you would be wonderful. It is fun to dream about the ideal house, isn’t it?

  • Katia

    JoAnn, I am really happy for you and the dream of buying your first home.
    I’m so glad to read your daybook, it’s a lot more down to earth than some others I have read. Not sure if I should venture in trying it out, I’m afraid I would be saying pretty much the same things.

  • Annie Kate

    I love this daybook! Isn’t summer great? There’s time to try out new ideas and rest and do so much more!

    I hope your house dream will work out this time around. It is certainly a better time to buy than 4 years ago! Enjoy looking at homes…and don’t forget to make sure the neighborhood is what you want too.

    Miss 10 and Miss 15 and I went swimming BEFORE breakfast! So much fun!
