The Simple Woman's Daybook - July 20, 2009


Outside my window... a gorgeous sunny 70° day

I am thinking... how quickly the weekend flies by ...

I am thankful for... all the little things I enjoy ... fresh breezes ... sunshine ... cooler days ... beautiful flowers ... luscious landscapes ...

From the kitchen... Meatloaf Monday and then on Tuesday we're going to try Orange Chicken. Wednesday will be breakfast for dinner, and homemade chicken pot pie for Thursday.

I am wearing... gray slacks and a red tunic with black and silver jewelry.

I am creating... nothing right now.

I am reading... nothing at the present time, but I'm sure I'll check something out of the library at lunch time.

I am hoping... to get a lot accomplished this week.

I am hearing... silence.

Around the house... some decluttering and some rearranging needs to be done.

One of my favorite things... finding a bargain.

A few plans for the rest of the week: a couple of cards to be sent out, getting together board meeting items, some food for a funeral dinner.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

These are the steps that my grandmother (who was born in 1911) played on as a child.

Hi Jerri,
Treasured steps for sure.
You life sounds very relaxed and in summer gear.
I hope you found something fun at the library.
Until next time...

I'm on book one and I can not believe how fast it reads.
With almot no effort I am nearly half way done.

Meatloaf Monday is a great idea. I haven't made meatloaf in so long that I've forgotten to include it in my menus.
We love meatloaf!
Thanks for the reminder and for sharing your Daybook.

Grandmother's Steps are lovely...

I loved the simplicity of your picture and the peaceful feelings it conveyed.
