The Simple Woman's Daybook (7-14-08)

Outside My is another beautiful, summer day. We've had quite a bit of rain this weekend, and it's good to see the sunshine again!

I am thinking... about the things I need to accomplish today. I need to pull out my notebook and make a list.

I am thankful for... watermelon. Need I say more?

From the kitchen... lots of free & fresh produce from the garden of one of our deacons and his wife. Potatoes, onions, and squash! Yum!

I am wearing... a sleeveless green blouse, a black linen skirt, and my black Skechers.

I am creating... hmm...nothing that I can think of. My energy is going into decluttering at the moment.

I am going... nowhere today! Tomorrow the kids and I will make a run to the bank and the library.

I am reading... the book of Genesis and a book about family photography.

I am hoping... that I can push ahead the due date on my student loan payment for the month. How's that for transparency?

I am hearing... not much, actually. Faint sounds of the girls downstairs.

Around the house... Ben is in his room playing with legos. We had ordered a free DVD from Fisher Price not too long ago, and it came yesterday. He watched it this morning and immediately started with the "I-want-it's." We had a fun chat about marketing, and how I just knew that he could create a similar toy from what he already had. Now he's creating a dinosaur with an imaginary GPS system and control panel.

The girls are playing dress up downstairs with some Christmas dresses that they found while we were cleaning out the attic this weekend.

One of my favorite things... good music. I love turning some on during the cooler days, leaving the windows open, and being able to hear it while I'm in the yard.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
~ More decluttering! I want to get rid of as much stuff as I can!
~ Getting some flowers into the boxes that are growing out of their pots.
~ Staying off the computer as much...ouch, huh?
~ Continuing with my 5K training. I will get there eventually!
~ Guests for Friday night dinner! A couple my husband knows will be joining us.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
I found this on and got such a kick out of it that I had to share it! I hope it gives you a little chuckle as you go about your day.

I love being able to hear music in the background while I'm outside, too. I usually turn it on right before I go out to hang up the diapers to dry.

Thanks for commenting--how do you know Neal and Kristina?? I love them. Yes, I went to Milligan AND...I used to play the bass recorder during Madrigals! I also did my student teaching at DB.
