The Simple Woman’s Daybook: August 18, 2008
Visit Peggy at The Simple Woman to see what other ladies are thinking and doing today!
Outside my Window…it’s cloudy today. It rained yesterday and I imagine we’ll get more today.
I am thinking…how can I get everything done that I have planned for this week and manage to sleep at night?
I am thankful for…this quiet time to think and reflect.
From the kitchen…are lots of fresh, raw veggies to eat — some from our garden and some from the farmer’s market. I can’t wait to prepare them.
I am wearing… a light blue cotton dress.
I am reading…a wide variety of things — books for review, health articles, blog posts, my devotionals, etc.
I am hoping…that this week will go by fast and I get a lot done. I am also hoping that I will pick up some new customers at my Wine and Wellness gathering this week.
I am hearing…the dryer.
I am creating… nothing at the moment. Earlier, I created and printed out invitations to the Wine and Wellness gathering as well as an invitation list for the next two I’m planning.
Around the house…there is much to do — laundry, cleaning, cooking — but I have already accomplished a lot today despite the fact that I slept late. I’m finally over the flu that I picked up in St. Louis, so I can get things around here back on track.
One of my favorite things…is to know that fall is coming. There are so many great things about fall — the leaves on the trees changing colors, long walks outdoors, chrysanthemums, a new Bible study class, bonfires, bands playing at half-time, harvest season, Labor Day, Thanksgiving. It’s a time of renewed energy and new activity… a season of thankfulness.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…lots of reading and writing to do, many phone calls and emails to get off, and some hostessing to do. Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…
