The Simple Woman's Daybook




FOR TODAY August 18, 2008


Outside My Window...I can see the trash cans that the two oldest girls haven't gotten around to bringing in.


I am thinking...that next year, I am going to start school after the August birthdays. We had a birthday on Aug. 7 and one on Aug 15. It is just too much to try and do school and try to keep up with the planning of parties.


I am thankful for...my new niece, Erin Sophia


From the kitchen...I haven't started, but I have the makings of Mexican rice sitting out so I can get that going while I take D to piano lessons.


I am wearing...my denim capris, a pretty summer shirt and bare feet.


I am creating...


I am going...to visit my new niece and her family sometime this week. I already had the opportunity to visit her in the hospital when she wasn't even 24 hours old. I am going to make some dinners for her family to freeze.


I am reading...A Mother's Rule for Life


I am hoping...That I can make my errands run smoothly this afternoon. I am trying to figure out which route to take that will involve the least amount of backtracking. Unfortunately, I am still going to have to do that.


I am hearing...the kids who are done with school playing on the Game Cube.


Around the house...it is time to straighten things up. I need to get back in the swing of things. I need to make sure that we are doing the afternoon clean up.


One of my favorite things...the color purple. Have I mentioned that?


A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:Recital photos are next weekend. I need to steam costumes for the girls. I need to stop by the church and pick up tickest for the baseball game/concert going on Friday. I need to start on the laundry again.


Here is picture thought I am sharing

This is my little guy. Believe it or not, he was dressed up as a doctor. Notice the Spiderman bedroom slippers. He has an oxford type shirt on over a short sleeve plaid shirt. He has his 'tools' (easter bunny pez dispenser and a plastic fence link). I am not exactly sure what the purpose of the Tupperware shape thing and the bat have to do with being a doc, but there you have it. I like how it is topped off with a John Smith helmet.
