May Daybook

For Today...

Outside my window...it's a gray and cloudy but very warm out.

I am thinking...about all the projects I would like to do around the house and in the craft room, but where to start!

I am thankful for...all those who have served our country.

From the kitchen...we had BBQ smoked ribs, lots of salads and homemade cherry pie!

I am wearing...yoga pants, t-shirt and flip-flops.

I am creating...drapes for the living room that are almost done.

I am going...to Great Wolf Lodge in a few days with my children.

I am reading...The Pillars of the Earth.

I am hoping...all those who lost loved ones in the military are feeling loved today.

I am hearing...the washing machine-laundry doesn't take a holiday at our house.  I also hear laughter from the play room!

Around the house...my husband is contendedly napping, my daughter is reading a book and the boys are playing games.

One of my favorite things...a quiet day for rest.

A few plans for the rest of the week: working on the living room drapes and packing three of the children for camp.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Doggie Pillows

Here is yet another home dec project that I procrastinated.


These pillows replace the boring striped ones that came with the sofa.  Our basement family room has been a boring beige for far too long.  I had the walls painted red and added some fun fabric pillows to brighten things up.  I love the green doggie fabric.  Now if we could just keep the toys picked up!

It's Fabric Tuesday at Quiltstory.
