The Simple Woman's Daybook- 8/4/08

Outside My Window... it is going to be a hot August day! I need to get outside in a few minutes and water my plants while it's still relatively cool.

I am thinking... of what a wonderful quiet time I had this morning. I'm following along with Prairie Chick on her Scripture schedule this week. This morning's reading was Genesis 39. The story of Joseph has always been one of my very favorites, but I gleaned a lot out of it this morning that I hadn't seen before.

I am thankful for... having the freedom to teach my children at home, especially as the public schools begin another year here today.

From the kitchen... a "use up the leftovers" day!

I am wearing... my pajamas. My clothes didn't get fully dried in the drier last night and I'm still waiting on them.

I am creating... lesson plans, chore charts, and checklists for the kids' schoolwork.

I am going... to the library today with the kids to find some books on explorers.

I am reading... The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers

I am hoping... that even though I didn't get much sleep last night, I can stay on track today.

I am hearing... the air conditioner running...already!

Around the house... The girls are playing quietly in the living room, and Ben is still asleep upstairs.

One of my favorite things... is cuddling with my kids in the morning. Kate woke up early today and we snuggled together and watched a Blue's Clues video.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
~ Moving back toward our school routine.
~ Possible company for Friday night dinner.
~ Printing off a few pictures, and inviting a friend over this weekend so that we can work on our scrapbooks together.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...(add your picture here)

That's "Dr. Lily," working her magic. Poor Kate was hornet stung last night while we were walking, and Lily was trying to cheer her up. Evidently it worked well, because Kate seems to be doing fine today!

That picture is classic! What a little jolt I always get to see my name referenced somewhere else on the blogosphere!

I agree-- fun picture. But, OUCH on the sting.

I enjoy reading these little daybooks that women leave in their blogs. - almost like looking inside their kitchen window and getting a glimpse in their lives. :)

What a great sister Dr. Lily makes!

I love leftover day.

I'm coming over from The Simple Woman's Daybook to say "hi". I *love* your blog title, it makes me smile.

I just had an online friend highly recommend The Heart is a Lonely Hunter to me. What a coincidence that you are reading it. I'll probably add it to my fall reading challenge.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Hi I came over from Peggy's to read your daybook. What a neat entry. Your photo is really cute too. I hope that sting heals up. Itiching is such a hard thing. I recently got into chiggars. They are horrible.
I hope you have a great day. Good luck with school when you get started.

Hi ladies!

DebD, I just finished Part One of The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and am still waiting for the plot. :) I am enjoying it, though. It's an interesting picture of Southern society.

"And am I the only one who is thrilled to get to use the word octopi in a sentence?"

That is seriously the BEST and FUNNIEST comment left on my blog in a long time!

I hope you will come back - I'm loving your blog as well. Bookmarking you ASAP.
