The Simple Woman's Daybook

Today I am participating in Peggy's, "The Simple Woman's Daybook", which she hosts every Monday. You can stop in to visit others' daybooks or join in too!

FOR TODAY Monday, June 2, 2008...

Outside My Window... the sun is shining and the air is still over Sparkle Pond. A blue jay and red-winged blackbird have alighted into the tree and are having breakfast at the feeder. A few, lavender blossoms still cling to the jacaranda tree.

I am thinking... about the task before me of getting the kitchen organized and deep-cleaned today; I am strangely excited about this! :)

I am thankful for... a healthy, vibrant family, friends new and old around me, and... summer vacation!

From the kitchen... Pinto beans will be simmering on the stove. I'll be making sun tea today and fresh guacamole to go with our tacos tonight - served in blue hard shells!

I am wearing... a white, cotton tank top and chocolate brown shorts

I am creating... a knit pair of socks ~ 3/4 done on those, a crocheted blanket for Project Linus ~ almost done with that too, and a new, knit washcloth for the kitchen. I'm also in the middle of a self-designed, embroidered piece that I hope to frame... someday! :)

I am going... to the market this morning to pick up a few more things that I couldn't get at Whole Foods this past Saturday.

I am reading... my Bible, Living More with Less (I have a read-along over at my blog!) and waiting for some requests to come in from the library.

I am hoping... that the weather will not turn sticky and I can leave the doors and windows open all day!

I am hearing... many birds singing and the moorhen scolding it's neighbor on the pond.

Around the house... my kettle of tea should be singing to me at any moment and I'll need to wake the girls.

One of my favorite things... is sitting out on the lanai and having my Bible and journaling time.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
Knitting group Tonight
Beach on Tuesday
Homeschool Evaluations on Wednesday
Re-organizing my Homekeeping planner
perhaps a chance to see the movie, "Expelled" at the dollar theater

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

My husband was sick again Saturday and rushed the emergency room. They can't figure out what is causing the pain. All the organs look fine. We are wondering if he has caught some kind of a painful virus. Only God knows. He is finally feeling better yesterday and this morning. I hope whatever it has been, it will soon be over.

Thank you for your kind words. It's disugustingly hot at my house. I try not to complain because I could be in Texas, where it doesn't cool off at night. At least in Florida it cools off.

Your entry was very sweet. It sound peaceful at your house. You reminded me to make arrangements to have my kids evaluated for Mr. Superintendent.

God bless you today.

Oh yes, I forgot. I really like the art work in your title up there. Very nice.

Fancy running into you again. :) (Used to stop buy all the time and somehow stopped when I moved RSS feeds.) Just joined in the Daybook and regarding through everyone else's.

Sounds perfectly lovely--reminds me that I need to put on pinto beans today as well.

I am sorry to hear your husband is still having a rough go. I will remember him in my prayers. And thank you for your sweet comment about my painting.

Heather, welcome back! :)

Mrs. C, Thank you for stopping by! :)

I'll be doing a fair bit of reading today. There are some books I need to go through at the library but they are in the reference only section so I have to do it down there!
I was late posting my linky for the daybook but it's up now.

Marcie said...

I love your daybook entry. It sounds like a good productive day, but without the "hustle bustle" of so many modern families. Just perfect! :)
