Monday ramblings...

Hi - I am full of random thoughts today... Happy Martin Luther King Day!

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today."

I need to do 7 loads of laundry. Did I not do ANY last week?!

Since I have the day off and am getting paid for it, definately have to scrap today!

Received my new Franklin Collages planner pages last week, and they are in my planner fresh and clean and empty - how organized that makes me feel in one fell swoop! So, I can plan *nothing* so I stay organized! Haha!

Husband, Dad and Brother are loading up and shipping out lambs today - wahoo! As Eric says, the only good sheep is sheep we don't have! So, it will be a good day for him.

My seventh grade daughter Elizabeth's first basketball game is tomorrow. Always fun to see how these "first-timers" play and improve over the season. (I speak from the experience of volleyball this fall.) Yes, Elizabeth plays and will play any and every sport open to her. And so far, she's done really well at all of them she's tried--> also swimming,soccer, & track. Yayhoo college scholarships! She and eighth grade son Luke are straight A students, too.(and he's a soccer and track star) They have been such easy kids to raise! Two-year-old Mark? Firmly in the two year old status... ask me --next year?!

Toodles for now! Enjoy your clean fresh Monday! --Kristin

I enjoyed Monday too. Spent time reading, baking cookies(I cheat I use premade), and visiting with friends.
