The Simple Woman


FOR TODAY June 22, 2010

Outside my window...The air is still.

I am thinking...that we need to plan something for our anniversary on Friday.

I am thankful for...My niece Jasmine. It is her 17th birthday today. :)

From the learning rooms...all is quiet because the kids are at VBS.

From the kitchen...all is quiet.

I am wearing...a summer shirt, denim skort, and metallic flip flops.

I am creating...a list of things I need to pick up for the 4H barbecue tomorrow.

I am going...back to the church because my daughter needs ibuprofen for her knee that she injured last night at dance.

I am reading...magazines. No books sound interesting to me right now. I don't
know what is wrong with me. Wait, I am reading Ozma of Oz to the Littles.

I am hoping...that it doesn't take too long to finish up the laundry. HA!

I am hearing...the dryer.

Around the house...all is quiet.

One of my favorite things...A Black and Tan sundae at Leatherby's Family Creamery
in Sacramento.

A few plans for the rest of the week: various family birthdays and anniversaries and a 4H barbecue

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...this is my niece (on the left) and my daughter #2 at Leatherby's Family Creamery in Sacramento two weekends ago. We were in town for Becky's brother's graduation from high school. It just isn't a trip to Sacramento if we don't get a visit in to Leatherby's.

Vacation Bible School Time

This year, all the kids who are still at home are at VBS. I don't quite know what do to with myself.

I homeschool. My children are usually with me most of the time. I try not to go grocery shopping with them.

I am cleaning. I don't have to stop and intervene in a fight. I don't have to put a bandage on a boo-boo. I don't have to clean up a spilled cup.

While I miss them, this "extra time" is great this week. We are having a 4-H end of year barbecue here tomorrow. I can do a little extra cleaning that usually gets overlooked.

So, as another Nicey says is fond of saying, I am going to get to getting.

Birthday party tonight

We are putting the finishing touches on food and decorations for our third daughter's 10th birthday party.

Disco is the theme. We had a great time shopping for decorations yesterday. We found some throw back candy. We even have a channel on the tv that is a disco channel. We are set.

So, after they swim this evening, and enjoy hot dogs and roast marshmallows, the disco will start.

I wonder how late they will be staying up?

She is at it again. :)

Keeper of the Home is at it again. This time she has an Excalibur Dehydrator. She has a great site full of information for living simple and natrually.
