Monday, Monday

FOR TODAY, Monday, August 31, 2009

Outside my window. . .It's a bit hazy today, but the sun is burning off the moisture and it looks like it is going to be a nice, cool day.

I am thinking. . .that the coffee tastes really good this morning.

I'm praying for. . .a safe trip home for my son.

I am thankful for. . .my husband coming home tomorrow. He's been away for a 8 days.

From the kitchen. . .a full pantry, after my trip to Costco on Saturday. I'm planning meals for the week.

I am wearing. . . My UNC sweats and Zsa Zsa slippers.

I am creating . . .
a "new" corner hutch for my dining room. I picked one up at a garage sale several years ago and am finally getting around to refinishing it. It is in the garage, up on sawhorses in the early stages of being sanded.

I am going. . .to take my daughter to school in a few minutes.

I am reading. . .My Life in France, by Julia Child

I am hoping . . . to get my son to physical therapy and get back to pick up my daughter from school on time this afternoon. WHY don't I think about these things when I set up appointments?? This is the kind of thing that makes me feel like a scatterbrain.

I am hearing . . .my daughter getting ready for school.

Around the house . . .I'm caught up with the laundry!! (Do you hear the trumpets playing?)

One of my favorite things . . .my dog's soft, silky ears and the adoring look she gives me when I scratch behind them.

A few things this week . . . Hubs is coming home! and we're all going to the Rockies game tomorrow night. Daughter starts soccer practice, Son #2 has driver's ed, Son #1 is driving home from Tacoma.

Here is picture thought I am sharing . . .I love this kitchen!

For more Daybooks go on over to see Peggy @ The Simple woman's day book.

It haw been a long time I did or saw a Daybook in the Blogworld. Maybe it means that school is in session and we are pretty much back to "normal"? Enjoy your week, Karen.

I'd like to see your hutch when you are done with it.

Wow, the red in that kitchen really pops!

8 days is a long time for your hubby to be away. Enjoy the reunion.

I'm woefully behind on all things blog-related, so I had no idea your husband had been gone for 8 days! That's a long time :) Hope you all have a great home-coming :)

I cleaned out my pantry yesterday, threw half a bag out, and now have lots of space. I think I might need to plan a trip to Sam's Club to fill that empty space back up, hehehe!

Sounds like a lovely day at your house, hope it gets better and better, as does your week :)

Hi Karen--
Neat post-it is ointeresting wht filters through our heads when we
find the time to sit quietly--really quiet and listen to ourselves think.

Have a great week!
