Beautiful Saturday...

It is a wonderfully beautiful Saturday morning and I thought I would take just a moment and express my thankfulness for this incredible day...It is already about 80 degrees, but a slight breeze is blowing through the house, keeping it cool for now...Living in Washington State, we don't see that foreign body that is known as the sun...the lilac's are blooming and wafting their intoxicating fragrance...it is a BEAUTFIUL day...We are doing some housework right now, but I plan on taking it easy in the scrap room later...)I think I will write about my scrap space soon, lest you think I have it better than I do) I have so many photos to get caught up on...

We went to a garage sale today...it was to benefit cancer research...I found a couple of shorts for David, but the build-up for this sale was bigger than what was there...I was a little disappointed. This makes me wonder, what causes would you champion for....I had a garage sale once to raise money for a gal who wanted to go out on a short term mission's trip...I have been the co-ordinator for gathering school supplies for our local schools for children who couldn't afford them...I have donated things for various missionaries...Missions is where my heart is, I guess...

I would love to take a cross country trip to see the best of what each state has to offer...I was thinking today about how I could make that dream a reality and wondering if we as a family could combine our fundraising ideas to start a cross country educational fund...I might even start with a cookbook....know any good recipes?

I hope your Saturday is as beautiful as mine!

Hi Carrie... so glad you stopped by... my dear hubby Paul thinks it best that I wait until the nesting has pasted... though he does find it a noble cause that I want to sharpen up some new skills with sewing.... I am afraid for a short time though that sewing will remain a vision... then again mom and grandma are visiting soon after the baby is born and I may be able to rub some skills off of them, whilst we gather around this untouched sewing machine. I enjoyed your Saturday morning ponderings... I have enjoyed a few of those lately as well. It's amazing how the weather encourages such experiences!!
