Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Week of July 20, 2009

For Today:



Outside my window: it is a perfect sunny day. My rose bush I planted at the front walkway is out in full bloom (and shocking my socks off).

I am thinking: I hope hubby's car doesn't need a lot of repairs done. The engine light came on yesterday on our way home from church ~ of course one day AFTER we booked vacation.

From the learning rooms: God is in control so we have nothing to worry about!

I am thankful for: God's blessings and even that we have a second car (for now) being on one income and all. God has always supplied ALL our needs and many of our wants and I am so grateful for His kindness and goodness.

From the kitchen: groceries are put away although I still need to take the meat I bought out of the fridge and package it individually for the freezer.

I am wearing: white tank top, brown shorts and bare feet

I am reading: my Bible and Take One, by Karen Kingsbury.

I am hoping: the car bill won't be too high.

I need: to start the laundry and cleaning the house for our guests at the end of the week.

I am creating: a broccoli salad for dinner tonight (although I'm not creating it just yet... that'll come later in the afternoon!)

I am hearing: just the tapping of my fingers on my keyboard and the hum of the central air.

Around the house: just a bit of clutter from the newspaper and books I used last week for my assignment, but otherwise, things are in pretty good shape.

One of my favorite things: snuggling with my hubby on the sofa or in bed ;-)

A few plans for the rest of the week: laundry, cleaning bathrooms, floors, starting the next assignment for my course, preparing for my sister's arrival.

Here is a picture thought to share with you:

My little rose bush I got as a "thank you"
for leading my small group this year

Pretty rosebush.. is that your garden, or just a 'shared' plot? I don't think you've ever mentioned a garden.
Hope you have a nice day, ours is going to be quiet. I can't motivate myself to do anything, but that's ok, it can all wait ;-)

I'm thinking of stopping this Simple Day book, no one seems to be doing it any more and no one comments on mine. Yours is the only one that I see updates on....well I know you're busy with family this week so that's probably why there isn't one today.
