The Simple Woman's Daybook - August 3, 2009

FOR TODAY, AUGUST 2nd EDITION...


Outside my window... a little bit of fog

I am thinking... that God made such a beautiful world!

I am thankful for... life - it is precious!

From the kitchen... oven fried chicken tenders.

I am wearing... gray slacks, fuschia top with gold trim to the office today.

I am creating... a decorative plate from a yard sale treasure.

I am going... to Nashville, TN, this weekend. My hubby and I are joining a group of friends going to the Grand Ole Opry.

I am reading... "Christy" by Catherine Marshall. (I know I said that last week, but I stopped and read a couple other books, now I'm back to Christy. I usually have a couple books I'm reading at a time.)

I am hoping... to ride my bike some this week. I didn't ride at all last week!

I am hearing... occasional traffic passing by ... the sound of Joyce Meyer on the TV.

Around the house... I'm still needing to do some intensive dusting ...

One of my favorite things... looking at nature. It's so peaceful to sit near a lake or walk by the seashore, or even just sit in my swing in my own backyard and gaze at God's creation.

A few plans for the rest of the week: I have to get all my work done by Thursday so that I can leave Friday for Nashville with a clear conscience.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

This is a picture my daughter took on our 2005 trip to Florida. I love the color in this picture!

Thank you for getting my mind on God's creation. It is a great way to get you focused on the right things, I think. I especially love that picture!

Yes, summer is flying by!
I am so happy you are getting to go to the Grand Ole Oprey. I was there in Nov. and had a great time. I was just thinking about that trip this morning.
Have a lovely week...

Thanks for stopping by today. I love your pic. It makes me a little homesick for the Jersey shore.

It's a lovely scene in the photo - isn't God good to us. He provides us with so much of His creation to enjoy, and we need to take time to enjoy it. When we enjoy and marvel at His creation it's like we're praising Him.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

God Bless,
Elena :)

Enjoying Nature and seeing God's handiwork everywhere is one of my favorite things, too. I'm in awe of all the beauty He has given us.

Thanks for your nice comments over at my blog. I always appreciate what you have to say.

The Florida picture is so peaceful and serene. Thanks for sharing. :)
