The simple woman's daybook



For today- Monday, June 9th, 2008

Outside My Window...
it's dark now, but it is finally raining. It caught us by surprise earlier, and Ben and I ran for the laundry on the line. We hurried and scrambled at first, but then gave in and just had fun with it. There's nothing better than a clothes-pin duel in the rain.

I am thinking... about how funny it is that Ben gets "cannibalism" confused with "capitalism"

I am thankful for... the rain! And the trip we are taking to my grandparents' house next week. How blessed my children are that they get to know their great-grandparents.

From the kitchen...
tonight we had "big bird burgers" leftover from the weekend. They're a new recipe for me, and they're a hit!

I am wearing... a green top and black shorts, barefoot.

I am creating... I'm ashamed to admit I'm still working on Kate's dress! The bodice is mostly done, but I'm having to redo my gathering stitches because I made them too short. I'm still on a search for my seam ripper...

I am going... downstairs, to read and wait on Jonathan to get home from work.

I am reading...
all of the same things as last week, except I finished Crane's Maggie.... I'm still trying to recover.

I am hoping...
to get the car packed and ready for our trip before hand so that we don't have to rush.

I am hearing...
Ben still awake in his room, making little boy noises that come few and far between these days.

Around the house...
it's very, very quiet.

One of my favorite things...
watching Ben take the lead in "manly" things, like helping Lily fix her bike today.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
getting all the laundry caught up, picking up a few groceries and snacks for our trip, having company on Wednesday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...


The first purple shamrock this year, just coming up this morning!

Hi Lauren,
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I was perusing a few of your old posts. You have a lovely blog! I'm wondering where in Ky you are... we may be too far away.

so not that I don't appreciate your post, but can you tell us how to make our posts come out the way we actually typed them?
I seem to have spacing issues no matter where I choose to blog.
dense ... I know it.
