Category: Simple Woman’s Daybook

Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be

Outside my window… blue skies and breeze and FINALLY some cooler temperatures

I am thinking… I should stop playing games and visiting blogs and get some sewing done

I am thankful for… Funsize‘s eighth week of pregnancy being a good one

I am wearing… jeans, white shirt with maroon stripes and footie socks

I am remembering… the days when I could do nothing all day and it was a treat

I am creating… aprons, aprons and more aprons. I really need the money

I am going… camping for MacD’s birthday this weekend

I am reading… Uh oh, I need to go to the library again. I’ve read them all

I am hoping… that the SSDI judge will grant Mr. Vixen’s claim and will do so sooner, rather than later

On my mind… wondering what I can ‘make’ with what I have around the house for MacD’s birthday present (party on Wednesday-check not till Saturday)

From the learning rooms… I am learning to live without

Noticing that… we only have six ice cream trucks on the street today, instead of 14

Pondering these words… ”Then, without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn’t know it must learn and find by experience that a quiet conscience makes one strong.” -Anne Frank

From the kitchen… must make the last two loaves of zucchini bread with the last harvest from my garden

Around the house… it is quiet and peaceful this afternoon

One of my favorite things… a cool breeze through the kitchen window

A few plans for the rest of the week: packing up the camping gear, MacD’s birthday party, sewing

From my picture journal…

The new apron’s I’ve already finished: Go check them out!

FOR TODAY August 3, 2009

Outside my window…More bright, HOT sunshine

I am thinking…my brain is going to explode from the urge to itch my back

I am thankful for…the ability to stand up straight again

From the kitchen…no ideas or inspiration, so who knows 

I am wearing…loose shorts (still) and a tank top

I am creating…trying to think of things to write and finish an embroidery for friends

I am going…to my first follow up with the surgeon

I am reading…I finished all my books, off to the library after the doctor

I am hoping…that I can find some peace within

I am hearing…birds at the feeder fighting for the seed

 Around the house…I am wondering if I will ever get all the Silly String vacuumed up

One of my favorite things…the first tomato from my garden 

A few plans for the rest of the week…Silly String eradication, more rest, and maybe some “exercise” ordered by the surgeon?

Here is a picture thought I am sharing…The Old Engine Company Building on a bright, sunny day
