The Simple Woman’s Daybook

For Today…

Outside my Window . . . another monsoon day.  Even the trees look droopy under the heat and humidity. 

I am thinking . . . if I am going to more wisely redeem the time I have, I’m going to have to practice dying to my self more.  Ouch!

I am thankful for . . . my perfect husband.

From the kitchen . . . nothing that will require firing up the oven, that’s for sure.

I am creating . . . kits for our business, playing in fabric, fun fun fun!

I am going . . . to book club tonight!

I am wearing . . . the new night gown I made from one of our new patterns.  Very cute, even if I do say so myself.

I am reading . . . Tapestry of Grace Year 1, Unit 1, in preparation for ordering books for next year.

I am hoping . . . That Mr. Perfect will build square-foot garden boxes for each of the children.

I am hearing . . . the hum of the heat pump cooling our home.  The children are still in bed, so it’s nice and quiet.

Around the house . . . piles of resources from our home educators convention and books we’re perusing for next year.  Tidying up for the week is next!

One of my favorite things . . . winding down our current academic year while planning/anticipating the next.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week . . . perhaps tea with a friend here at my house today or tomorrow, and book club tonight.  Crazy Wednesday as usual, and other than that, home, home, home!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . . from our recent trip to Seattle.  Isn’t the color amazing?
