Simple Woman's Daybook for August 31, 2009

Authored by

Outside my window...

the sun is shining, the sky is bright and clear, the leaves are rustling in the gentle breeze. The tall grasses in the field are swaying slowly. And then there's Sam, just walking by, heading for the dog's pool - water he has been told not to get wet in. Now walking by again, no doubt fiddling with his Daddy's tools and tiling accessories by the noises I'm hearing.

I am thinking...

should I get up to see what Sam's into? Is he dirty, less than an hour after getting dressed?

I am thankful for...

new beginnings and changed lives. LIFE is amazing, in so many ways and for so many reasons.

From the learning rooms...

we'll be heading outside today for some nature study and doing some fun painting.

From the kitchen...

a pretty good juice slush made by my sweet husband, really pretty fantastically good considering that I've left it sitting in the frig for day, adding the ice today. And later on some sweet sugar cookies.

I am wearing...

khaki shorts, coral shirt, socks, unbrushed hair and my glasses

I am creating...

plans for our new year, a dress for Abby, and a new journal.

I am going...

to get up and finish laundry... soon.

I am reading...

Self Talk, Soul Talk by Jennifer Rothschild - what an awesome book by such an awesome woman, inspiring me to talk the talk to myself AND The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews - what a fun book!

I am hoping...

our laminate floor gets here this Friday.

I am hearing...

Toy Story planning. The kids are finishing it up from last night while I get ready for our day.

Around the house...

things are a mess, to put it loosely and lightly. New fabulous flooring being fastened to our floors. Sounds flummoxing? It does to me too. (and I don't even know what flummoxing is but is sounds like we feel here)

One of my favorite things...

feeling rejuvenated by connecting with friends.

A few plans for the rest of the week...

nature study on Tuesday, sewing, construction on flooring (oh that's for my sweet man *wink* ).

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Ahhhh, the joys of the computer and the flaws of it. My picture uploading program is showing an error and therefore isn't working. You'll have to wait in anticipation for the picture.

How does your day look today? Come join us.
