The Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … August 11, 2008

Outside My Window… bright but not so hot — at least, not so far.

I am thinking… about some ideas for some writing projects and also about “birthday week.” Jason’s birthday was in July but he wanted to wait to celebrate til he came home. Jeremy’s is Friday but he wants to wait til Jason gets home. Mine is Thursday of next week.So we’re going to have a whole lot of celebrating going on…

I am thankful for… my husband and family,God’s love and car, and air conditioning 🙂 Honestly, I don’t know how I would live without it, I get so hot so easily..

From the kitchen…a light day since it is a busy day, but I do need to do something with ripening bananas soon.

I am wearing… a green and blue plaid seersucker dress. I love it for summertime — it’s much cooler than many of my other clothes.

I am creating… I am still working on my new cross stitch project. It will take a while. In fact, I am so tempted to go work on it now, but I have other things to do. Progress as of Friday is at the bottom of this post, though I have worked on it a little more since then.

I am going… I actually already went…to take my mil to an audiologist’s appointment Tonight we have a ladies’ meeting with one of my favorite people.

I am reading… To Kill a Mockingbird and
It Happens Every Spring still. Almost done with the latter.

I am hoping… to get a nap in today — I got up earlier than usual for summer, but I am going to have to get used to that again soon when school starts.

I am hearing… Jesse absentmindedly bumping his leg against the desk.

Around the house… I have some piles of clutter I need to sort through and put away.

One of my favorite things… is hot Krispy Kreme donuts. 🙂 We passed by there on our way home from my mil’s appointment, and I introduced to to the joys of Krispy Kreme. She is now a convert.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Besides the clutter control, I need to make some appointments for Jesse (I listed that last week but didn’t get to it), get the rest of his school supplies, shop for birthdays, dust and vacuum my bedroom, clean Jason’s room in time for his return this weekend (Yay!)

Here is picture thought I am sharing…

Sunset reflection

I had noticed a lovely sunset and went out to try to get a picture of it, then on my way out to the front yard I noticed this reflection on the car that I thought was kind of neat. But by the time I got my camera, went outside, and then took this picture, the sun had gone down too much. I tried taking a couple more pictures, but I was directly facing the neighbors across the street — whom I don’t know — and felt awkward that they might be thinking I was taking pictures of them or their house, so I gave up.

  1. I like the picture. It’s different and one can clearly see the sunset. I like Krispy Kreme daughnuts also but only the cream filled chocalate glazed ones.
    I had a nap this afternoon. I’ve been waking early recently. I try not to nap when Honey Bear is out of town because I have trouble sleeping anyway but when he’s here, I sure take that nap.

    I wonder what happened to Peggy’s post and our linky today. I don’t remember her saying she wasn’t doing it.

  2. I don’t know why but I burst out laughing at the thought of neighbors you don’t know seeing you take a picture of their house.

    Beautiful picture.
