The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my Window.....blue skies, bright sunlight and a breeze moving the branches of the big oak trees.
I am thankful for....safe travels for my daughter as she flew home from France. After three long months it is so good to have her home.
From the kitchen...a few jars of pickled eggplant to make our sandwiches taste delicious!
I am wearing...a green short-sleeved shirt, blue shorts and my white socks that pass for slippers these days.
I am reading..."Sarah's Quilt" by Nancy Turner
I am hoping...the businessmen who said they were interested in our house will decide to buy it!
I am creating... tiny baby blankets for the little babies in our local hospital.
I am hearing...the hum and whirr of the washing machine and dryer. I am really thankful for the work they do for me.
Around the house...it is time to do something with my sadly neglected flower garden. The lack of rain and unrelenting heat of the summer months have taken a toll on it. And I have been too lazy up until now to get out there and do something about it.
One of my favorite things...is sitting on the couch with a good book and a cup of tea.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...piano lessons tomorrow afternoon, Bible Study wednesday morning, volunteer work at church wednesday afternoon, choir practice wednesday evening, a weekend trip to visit the kids and grands in Dallas!
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
This is our resident Roadrunner. I am constantly amazed at the creativity of the Father. This little guy is such fun to watch. I even caught him perched on the edge of the birdbath the other day - getting a deep drink of water.
