The Simple Woman's Daybook

Welcome to...
FOR TODAY. . .June 23, 2014
Outside my window . . .a cool, summer morning; a blue, cloudless sky.
I am thinking . . .how I love having Mondays off. 
I am thankful . . .For my husband's hard work and vision in making our house a home. 
In the kitchen . . .I made a strawberry-rhubarb pie this weekend, with rhubarb from our neighbor's garden.  Tonight, we'll grill chicken and have Chicken Taco Salad.
I am wearing . . .capris and a tank top, with a sweater.  It's just 54 degrees right now.
I am creating...a landscaping plan for the backyard. We're on Phase I.
I am going. . .to water aerobics this morning.  I have a coffee date with a friend later in the week, but that's about it, other than my regular work hours.
I am reading. . .The Typewriter Girl by Alison Atlee
I am looking forward to. . .the day ahead, to get my house in order and catch up on a few chores. A quiet week ahead.
Around the house. . .a pile of laundry, messy kitchen, a chaise lounge on the back patio, with a book nearby, that's calling my name.
A favorite quote for today. . .
"Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped."  (African Proverb)
One of my favorite things. . .the view outside the window by my desk.  Our front yard, the street we live on, the peek at the mountains between the houses across the street.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .watching Luke and Dan play softball tomorrow night.  That's about it!
A peek into my day. . .sweet peas growing in the backyard

I can't see your sweet pea picture but I can imagine. I love the look and smell of sweet peas! I would love an extra day off in the week. Just think of all the reading that could be done!
