Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Week of June 8, 2009

For Today:

Outside my window: it is cool and the sun is peeking out for awhile before the scheduled rain.

I am thinking: that with my gargantuan mound of laundry awaiting me downstairs I really don't have time to take hubby's car in for the 11:30 a.m. appointment he booked this morning while I was sleepingIndifference

From the learning rooms: I am learning to "enjoy what I have rather than desiring what I don't have" from my reading in Ecclesiastes 6.

I am thankful for: air travel safety as we traveled home from Texas.

From the kitchen: Not much happening over there... just some tea to wake me up. Hubby is out for dinner tonight so not sure what I'll have - probably just some leftover lasagna in the freezer.

I am wearing: pink v-neck t-shirt, blue sweats and pink slippers.

I am reading: my Bible (Ecclesiastes still) and Reconstructing Natalie by Laura Jensen Walker.

I am hoping: to find a "Sorry for the Loss of Your Pet" card within walking distance when I drop hubby's car off, to send to friends whose little cat, Noah, died over the weekend. Blowing Nose

I am creating: a huge mess in my family room with pile after pile of dirty laundry to be done.

I am hearing: the slight roar of trucks on the street behind me as they head through the intersection and the "tick-tock" of the kitchen clock.

Around the house: are signs that we've been away - huge piles of junk mail and papers on the dining room table, little piles of things out of the suitcase that haven't quite found a home yet (mostly piled on my bedroom dresser), mounds of laundry awaiting their turn in the washing machine.

One of my favorite things: feeling that suck-you-back-in-your-seat rush as the plane picks up speed on the runway for takeoff.... Ooooh I love that! It's like an amusement park ride. "I feel the need... the need for speed!"

A few plans for the rest of the week: my next assignment; getting things back in order here with housework, laundry, etc; painting that new French Door; finding a wedding gift and attending the wedding of a young couple in our small group.

Here is a picture thought to share with you:

That picture is neat! I love the sky when it's pink. I hope you can make it through all of your laundry. Too bad there are disposable travel clothing! ha.

That picture is gorgeous! There is nothing like a Texas sunset! I missed a pretty one a couple of weeks ago. By the time I got outside the sky was getting darker and the majestic colors had faded into the background.
I love this idea of capturing all your moments. Answering those questions will truly cause you to slow down and think, reflect. Love it!!!

What a gorgeous photo! Maybe you should hang it in your laundry room! ;) Laundry is my least favorite thing to do!! It's always great to see those piles disappear as you make progress though.
