Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Week of July 6, 2009

For Today:

Outside my window: my garden is finally starting to take root full of pink and white impatients amidst the perennial bushes.

I am thinking: how exhausted I am, yet have so much "catch up" to do from two weeks of "sitting" for the furry nephew and 2 year old.

From the learning rooms: God knows what's best for us and what we can handle. He promises to never give us more than we can handle, even when we may think we're beyond the point of handling what comes our way.

I am thankful for: friends and family and for celebrations, like my hubby's 45th birthday!

From the kitchen: the last of the dinner prep dishes have gone into the dishwasher after I unloaded last night's load when I first entered the kitchen this morning.

I am wearing: white v-neck tee, periwinkle blue skort and pink sweater

I am reading: my Bible (not near enough these days though) and Take One, the first book in the newest series "Above the Line" by Karen Kingsbury, although I STILL haven't gotten very far yet still.

I am hoping: we are able to rent the condo in Myrtle Beach I found online - it looks GREAT with good reviews from previous guests. Just waiting for an email back from the owners.

I need: energy to accomplish the housecleaning tasks that went by the wayside the past 2 weeks.

I am creating: fajitas for dinner tonight.

I am hearing: sweet silence! Ahhhh... I love my quiet life ;-)

Around the house: are birthday balloons from last Thursday's birthday celebration for hubby.

One of my favorite things: showing my hubby how much he means to me and spoiling him for his birthday.

A few plans for the rest of the week: laundry, cleaning bathrooms, floors, starting the next assignment for my course, dinner out with a friend... that's about it - it's a pretty quiet week (thank goodness!)

Here are TWO picture thoughts to share with you:

Two last memories of my Sitting week!

Little Miss "H" wanted in Pepper's "room"
when we went to let him out after getting home from shopping.

What! you mean you aren't still in your pj's? ;-)
Your week sounds lovely after the chaos you've just had, hope you enjoy it. Ours will be quiet too... no Connor to play with and Emily is at her grandparents every day. Kristen is going to be a little bored unless she figures out the joy of reading (I wish)!

The pictures are adorable! That last one does look like Pepper is guarding Little Miss H!

Sometimes I mourn not having children, but the older I get...I really love the quiet. Hope you have a lovely Tuesday. ; )

Aw, I love those two pictures. So adorable!
When you get further in Take One, you have to let me know what you think of it. I'm waiting to get it out from the church library but it's been out since the book came out.
Enjoy your quiet week:)

Enjoy your quiet week!:)

PS: I have a suspicion that I've commented multiple times but it keeps giving me an error message. If I have, sorry!
