In a big country, dreams stay with you

I am constantly amazed at the beauty of Nicaragua. From the sunrise over the mountains (and volcano!) during the drive into work to the sunset at the beach over the Pacific Ocean, it's all so beautiful.

We spent a few days at the beach earlier this week and I took a lot of photos -- these are some of my favorites.

Daybook: June 24, 2010

Grabbed this little meme from my friend Allison's blog. :)

Out my window: The little mountain across the street bathed in afternoon sunlight.

I am listening to: The fan next to my desk.

I am thankful for: This fan, it's a little warm here today. :)

From the kitchen: I have wings marinating in the fridge that Wayne is going to grill for dinner. Plus sauteed green beans with almonds and butter.

I am creating: Super-secret baby gifts.

I am reading: Sue Grafton novels on my ipod touch -- ebooks are a missionaries best friend!

Around the house: Still unpacking from beach vacation, but all the laundry is done.

One of my favorite things: The way Emily rubs her fingers together against the flannel of her blankie.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Lesson plans for second semester English classes at the school.

I am thinking: About plans for Emily's birthday party and where I can buy some fireworks...
