The Simple Woman's Daybook Monday June 29, 2009

For Today...

Outside my window... heat, heat and more heat... summer is here. I said yesterday as I walked across the hot asphalt of a parking lot, it felt like walking on the surface of the sun!

I am thinking... about pool safety. (I will post more about this later.)

From the learning rooms... sight words flash cards have been added to my 2nd grader's daily regime... go figure, he likes them and begs to do them!

I am thankful for... summertime

From the kitchen... mom's on strike (I will post more about this later.)

I am wearing... my daughter's jeans and a grey "Modest Is Hottest" tee shirt

I am reading... Elvis Takes A Back Seat by Leanna Ellis... cute, cute book! Just finished Talking To The Dead by Bonnie Grove... it was different than I expected, but very good.

I am hoping... for a good week and some creativity on my part to fill our days. It's the end of June and boredom has officially set in.

I am creating... some new Proverbs 31 Devotions. I like to write a bunch in the summer and stockpile them to use throughout the year. Doesn't always happen but if it does, it's a great feeling!

I am praying... for hurting people in tough situations.

Around the house... a good, deep cleaning is in order.

One of my favorite things... my three year old dressed in one of her too-cute bathing suits

On my iPod... Summertime by Kenny Chesney

A few plans for the rest of the week... All Star meet tonight, a tour of Great Harvest bread, several trips to the pool, a free summer movie with the kids, meeting up with some old friends from high school Wednesday night, celebrating the 4th with friends this coming weekend.

Great daybook Marybeth. I'm looking forward to the explanations of all the "post more about this later" comments!

Peggy is on vacation, so Grandmother Wren is keeping up the links to other daybooks. You can add yours at Have a blessed week.

Marybeth, I enjoyed your daybook. I'm looking forward to your "post more about this later" comments, too.

We've had some really hot days where I live also, so I know how you feel. Hope you'll be able to squeeze in those trips to the pool.

I was interested in those book titles you had posted. They certainly do sound unusual!
