Simple Woman's Daybook

July 16, 2008

Outside My Window...
sunshine, birds singing, trees rustling in a bit of breeze

I am thinking...
of decisions that need to be made this week,
of plans for school and schedule for the coming year,
of ways to add beauty and comfort to our home,
of how to add simple fun to every day

I am thankful for...
my husband,
my children,
my parents and extended family,
my friends,
and most of all, that God is good, all the time.

From the kitchen...
homemade waffles :)

I am wearing...
red striped shirt and navy shorts

I am creating...
re-focusing on creating a Haven at home for my family,
creating plans for more order, productivity, and beauty for the coming year,
digging (back) into some major scrapbooking projects

I am going...
to do some major purging this week,
to get caught up on reading with the kids,
to get birthday/thank you/other cards finished and in the mail!!

I am reading...
The Beautiful Ache, by Leigh McLeroy
Hidden Art, by Edith Schaeffer
Educating the WholeHearted Child, by Clay and Sally Clarkson
Dearest Friend, the Life of Abigail Adams

I am hoping...
that the finger I burned making waffles feels better by church time tonight!

I am hearing...
"The Power of the Cross", sung by Calling Levi
Sounds of happy children playing

Around the house...
Finally decided on paint colors for living room bookcases, etc....now I need to get busy painting!
Serious decluttering this week
"One beautiful thing every day."

One of my favorite things...
Sweet pictures and cards from my children
Hearing from old friends
(Okay, I know, that's two ;-))

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
A quiet week, I hope...
A trip to the library
Two week shopping trip end of week
Simple fun, lots of reading, cleaning, and decluttering
A fun outside surprise for the kids later in the week. :)

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Jello tastes so much better in pretty glass dessert cups! ;-)

And Yahtzee is way more fun with Mickey Mouse Ears dice!
