The Simple Woman's Daybook~August 18th


FOR TODAY, August 18, 2008...


Outside My Window...the sun is shining, the American Flag is waving gently in the breeze, the road is quiet


I am thinking... about my Nana, who would have celebrated her 88th birthday on the 16th. I miss her and wish my kids would have known her.


I am thankful for... our family time together at the lake and that we are able to have such a great getaway space.


From the kitchen... it's baking day! I am making Honey Wheat Bread and Old Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls. They're rising now.


I am wearing... my white nightgown with purple flowers.


I am creating... my to do list for the week. It's packed with things to do!


I am going... no where today!! It's recovery day after the weekend away.


I am reading... Innocent as Sin and the Word Among Us (daily meditations).


I am hoping... for a positive school year for ds.


I am hearing...
the dishes clinking and the pots clanging as ds empties the dishwasher.


Around the house... there are loads of laundry to do. I hope to start priming ds's bedroom to complete his room makeover before returning to school on Monday.


One of my favorite things... black eyed susans. They're so cheerful!


A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: I plan on going into school tomorrow to complete my classroom set up. On Wednesday, my gf's are having a luncheon for my birthday. On Thursday, it's my birthday. I'm planning on shopping for school clothes for myself. Then, we'll go out to dinner and have cake with my parents afterwards. On Friday, the kids and I will grocery shop and do any final back to school shopping for ds.



Here is picture thought I am sharing...

This is our dd and our niece, who heads off to her freshman year of college on Thursday. We wish her our best...

Be sure to check out Peggy's for more...

Have a week full of blessings,

Lisa

Sounds like a busy week ahead of you. I love home made cinnamon rolls! I make them at Christmas time and freeze several batches for the months ahead.
