For today. . .

I found Peggy's Simple Woman's Daybook through my friend Jen's blog. I thought it would be fun to join in. It's supposed to be done on Mondays, but that's me, always a day late and a dollar short.
Outside My Window...is a view of the mountains (if I look between the neighbors' houses across the street). There are also two window boxes filled to the brim with assorted purple, pink and yellow petunias and mariogolds. I hoped they would make the front of the house look pretty, but seeing them as I work at my desk is an added bonus.

I am thinking...about what Emily and I will have for supper.

I am thankful for...being married (for 24 years as of yesterday) to the best guy ever.

From the kitchen... not a lot going on in there tonight or tomorrow night:) It seems we are on the run this week.

I am wearing...denim capris, a white v-neck tee, and Land's End sandals that are soooo comfy.

I am creating...

I am going... to Target this evening to buy dog food, a lamp, Raisin Bran and ziploc bags.

I am reading... Our Lady of the Lost and Found

I am hoping...to sell our house and be settled in an new home by the end of the summer.

I am hearing... Jimmy Buffet on the radio

Around the house...things are in disarray as we are still getting our act together to list the house next week.

One of my favorite things... summer mornings on the back porch, drinking coffee, reading a book or doing the crossword puzzle. When is this going to happen???

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: softball tonight, baseball tomorrow, lunch with my friend Renee on Thursday, baseball tournament this weekend and a Sayanara Party for our Japanese exchange student.

Here is a picture I am sharing. . .we've had some incredible thunderstorms the past couple days. And some awesome looking clouds leading up to them. Here's one. . .


This was fun. If you'd like to join in, check out The Simple Woman's

Hi Karen!

This post looks like a fun thing to do. It gets you thinking and focusing on the simple things I think. I mean, if you can keep from making a to-do list out of it like I would be tempted to do.

I like that sitting on the porch reading and drinking coffee! You should make time for that...it does sound like life is busy, hectic and full for you now but I'm sure you love it too.
Was your anniversary Monday, 6/2? Mine was then!

Thanks for sharing this. I found your blog on CWO.
My blog has lots about gardening and scads of other stuff; today until June 6 I am offering a free copy of Gayle Roper's new novel Fatal Deduction, to one person who comments. Just in case you are interested, for reading on the porch while drinking coffee.

That was pretty cool, Karen. I liked the list of things . . . sitting on the back porch reading . . . oh yeah, that would be awesome.

Hey there, I loved this post! I saw this over at Jen's also, and also at another blog I lurk at. If I can remember next Monday, I want to play along :) Enjoyed reading your answers, especially the Target one, LOL!

Hope you're having a great week!
