A Simple Woman's Daybook - April 20, 2009

For today...

Outside my window...Overcast, but that's OK because this weekend was skies and sunshine!

I am thinking...of all of the things that I need to do around and outside of the house. I am really getting the Spring cleaning bug and I'm ready to dive in.

I am thankful for...nice weather. I was able to get outside this weekend and work in the yard. We have a lot of cleaning up to do and it was a great way to get it all started. I was even able to teach Jamison the purpose of worms.

From the kitchen...baked ziti. Jamison and I made it last night and it was yummy. That means leftovers tonight. Tomorrow, we're having breakfast for dinner which is one of our favorite things to do.

I am wearing...yellow, keeping the sunshine going!

I am reading...the book of Deuteronomy, chapters 1-26, seriously...this week in BSF we are reading almost the entire book.

I am hoping...Jamison does better this week with soccer than the last two weeks. For some reason she's having a hard time participating this year. I just want her to go out and have fun.

I am creating...A master To Do list for the next four weeks (until Memorial Day). We have a basement to clean, a garage to organize, tools to purchase, painting to do... I bought a new notebook just for projects that I want to get done. I am making the list today to share with Rondell tonight! Fun times...well, for me, maybe not for Rondell.

Around the house...See above.

One of my favorite things...Seeing the results of working in the yard. I love the way my yard looks when the weeds are pulled and the dirt is all turned over. We have a lot of work to do out there this year, so I'm focusing on cleaning up rather than planting a lot of flowers. Instead, I'm going to do pots around the front.

A few plans for the rest of the week...the To Do list. I'll keep you posted of my progress.

Journal with me!

Oh good luck with that Honey-Do list. I make lists all the time, but they somehow turn into Honey-Don't...

I've done pots for the last 5 years. We lived with a garden well established. The new house has nothing. I was out there this morning, digging, working in sand and potting mix, planting. Maybe I should have stuck to pots. My back is killing me and I'm only half done.
We like haveing breakfast for dinner, too.
Have a good one. Give the hubby that honey do list but tell him it doesn't all have to be done at once.

Sounds great :) What a good idea to make a Master list. That might be good for me. I get sooo distracted!

I am so with on the weather getting nice outside. However it makes it hard to get my blogging done. I hope all goes well with the honey do list. I am a big list person as I just love to be able to mark things off of it. Hope you have a great Monday!

Again, I love this post! Good for you wearing the yellow, trying to keep the sunshine going! Wish I looked good in yellow. I could use some springtime colors right now! :)

oh, are you just loving Deuteronomy? reading it quickly is the best way! Moses gave it as a speech in one day, and it makes the best sense that way!

God bless you!
