Outside my window ~ It is raining. I can hear the cars driving by and the water on their tires. The grass is tall. Today was supposed to be mowing day. The weeds are starting to get under control. We spent the day yesterday working in the gardens. The porch is a mess. A sign of our 4th of July party last night.
I am thinking ~ I need to get moving on the day. The rain is making me sleepy. So many things I want to do but so little energy this morning. I think I will go for run in the rain. If it slows down enough. That will wake me up and I always feel better after my workouts.
I am thankful ~ for a great weekend. Full of family and fun. It doesn't get any better than that.
I am wearing ~ A tank top and Brian's comfy pants that are covered in deer...lol
From the kitchen ~ oh the mess.....
I am creating ~ a legacy. This has been on my mind a lot lately.
I am going ~ to run into town this afternoon. I have a few errands to run and I figured it would be best to do it while it is raining.
I am reading ~ a few inspirational blogs.
I am hoping ~ to start a blog link up called Beauty Captured. I started it a while back and had to stop because of some life issues. It was basically a picture a day capturing beauty. Taking the time to stop and notice the beauty that surrounds me. I loved doing it. I am not going to do it every day but once a week instead. I am excited. I just have to figure out what day.
I am hearing ~ My puppy whining, a fan blowing and the rain.
I am learning ~ to "outlove"
I am wondering ~ when we are going to start back to school.
A few random pictures ~

1. I'm sorry that I am late. It has been a crazy busy weekend. Friday came and went without me having any time to sit down at the computer. Right now I am cooking and cleaning and typing. All kind of at the same time. I didn't want to just skip Random 5 so here I am.
Did you have a good holiday weekend? We went to my dads yesterday. Played football, watched fireworks. It was fun! Tonight we had a little family party. Carter and Morgan decorated the front porch and set it all up with games. It was a good weekend. :)
2. I got a tattoo! I love it. I told myself I would never ever get a wrist tattoo but I did it and I am so glad I did. It says "outlove". Now I know that is not a common word. Which is actually what I was going for. Here is what it means to me...Outlove. It means to exceed in loving. To go beyond. To repay evil with good. I want to live my life in such a way that I show Gods love to my family, friends and strangers. That not only do I show them love but shower them in love. To be a gentle woman. To make people around feel special. To love. To exceed loving.
3. I love macaroni salad.
4. I have been slacking on my workouts! I am going to bed early tonight so that I can get it done before our day takes off running. I just feel so much better when I am consistent.
5. Do you remember my Beauty Captured challenge? Well...I have decided to start it again. I am not going to do every day. I am going to do it once a week. Would you like to join me?
