Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today...
July 28, 2008

Outside my Window...
Another sunny, hot day...headed to the triple-digits.

I am thinking...
I'm ready for fall!! :)

I am thankful for...
Friends who are sharing their pool with us this summer!
A week with little on the calendar.
New space in the dining room/school room since the old piano was picked up Saturday!
Lessons God is teaching me about Sovereignty and Surrender.

From the kitchen...
As little as possible these days...with no AC in our kitchen, cooking is not my favorite task these days!

I am wearing...
an apricot tee and white capris.

I am reading...
Still working my way through a whole stack of books. :) Just started this week: A Bend in the Road, by David Jeremiah. More really good reading!!

I am hoping...
For a really productive week this week.
For renewed focus and creativity.

I am hearing...
The whirr of the fan behind me,
an occasional car drive past,
the last few moments of silence before the children awake. :)

Around the house...
Finally caught up on the dishes and almost caught up on laundry...yay!
*Must* get the dining room re-arranged and re-organized so that I can get back to school planning and scrapbooking projects (on which I am behind!)
Books desperately needing to be sorted...another *must do* this week.

One of my favorite things...
Time in the morning to chat with Billy before he goes to work.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...
Book sorting,
Dining Room re-arranging,
Reading with children,
Catching up on cards and notes I'm woefully behind on,
Catching up on scrapbooking projects I'm *also* woefully behind on,
My desk cleaned off (about the next thing on my list!),
Lesson planning!!!,
And *trying* to stay cool. :)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you..

one of Peter's many recent Lego creations.

Thanks to Peggy for hosting the Simple Woman's Daybook each week!
