The Simple Woman's Daybook


Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...the flower spot has matured in what we call "The Fairy Garden". The blue flowers are a type of vinca that is native to Texas. Everything looks lush thanks to the rains, heat and humidity..


FOR TODAY
July 6, 2010...

Outside my window...the grass is green once again thanks to last weeks rains (but that also means we will have to mow again soon!

I am thinking...about how God may be wanting to stretch me during this season of my life.

I am thankful for...air conditioning!

From the learning rooms...closed for the summer! (But really, every day brings opportunities for learning...)

From the kitchen...the watermelon "bowl" filled with fruit salad.

I am wearing...denim capris and a black tank top.

I am creating...a primitive folk art style painting of "The Tree of Life".

I am going...to the Weatherford movie theater with Angel for the Tuesday morning free summer movie - today's is "Hotel for Dogs".

I am reading...a fiction novel from the Mitford series by Jan Karon.

I am hoping...for a productive day filled with joy and getting through my "to do" list.

I am hearing...the sounds of the household waking up into morning.

Around the house...finishing putting things away after our Fourth of July celebration.

One of my favorite things...a large, caffeine free Diet Coke with a shot of vanilla from Quick Trip - only 49 cents!

A few plans for the rest of the week...tackling (finally) the refinishing of the coffee table in the living room!
