Anyday but Monday

I think Simply Jean is going to just be an any day post as I never seem able to get something done on Mondays so for Thursday

Outside my window: it is overcast with a light drizzle, so different after yesterdays beautiful sunshine.
From the learning rooms: Well that an 84 year old mam can still teach a daughter how to make pastry. When I visited mam we baked pies for my son but I wasn't rolling the pastry correctly, mam said 'roll away from you then turn' I was just rolling back and forth a few times before turning. Never too old to learn something new.

I am thankful for: answered prayer, for my family. I love spending time with them and it was great going to spend 2 weeks in my home town and seeing everyone.

From the kitchen: nothing today but I am definitely considering baking again as I don't do baking but I made biscuits for my grandchildren when I was at mams so look out kitchen here I come.

I am reading: Several books at the moment one on prayer and the other on the pentecostal blessing, also the book of Revelation which I love reading.

I am creating: space - yes space, I am going to have a good sort out and get rid of everything I don't need as I am surrounded by clutter ...
Around the house: De clutter - which goes along with the creating space.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Babysitting tonight as it's Marc and Sams 7th wedding anniversary. Silver Art clay workshop with a friend on Friday. A weekend of just relaxing as I am shattered after a day out with 3 grandchildren all on my own but we had a great time and it was worth the being shattered.

A picture thought I am sharing: I thought I'd share another family pic with you. Again this one was taken last year at the beach when I visited mam and the family but as I've just come back from sharing another 2 weeks up there and didn't take any pics I decided to show you this one of my sister Brenda, brother Michael and Mam and me ofcourse. Believe it or not the dolphin was a rubbish bin - don't ask me why we were taken by a rubbish bin!!!!
