The Simple Woman's Daybook - May 11, 2009

For today...

Outside my window...partly sunny and cool. It's supposed to be a pretty nice week.

I am thinking...about too much, so I need to write it all down. Calls I need to make, signing Jamison up for camp...these are when my lists come in real handy.

I am thankful for...my mom. She was sick yesterday, but stayed at my house anyways to spend time with me. She even pattied the hamburgers (because she knows my hate for touching raw meat!).

From the kitchen...food on the grill! Yesterday we had such a great meal...baked beans, pasta salad, deviled eggs, brats, hamburgers, steak and short ribs. I think we all ate too much but it was worth it. Tonight we will be having leftovers.

I am wearing...red! And tennis shoes because in the mad rush of the morning I could not find my black shoes. Shh...don't tell.

I am reading...my BSF notes. I've been going through my notes from this year and writing key points in my Bible. This way when I look at the passages again I'll have the notes right there. I got this tip from my discussion leader and I love it.

I am hoping...to get my brain organized this week.

I am creating...the clipboards still. I went to Michaels and got some additional items to use and I plan on finishing them this week (I've found some great tutorials) and I'll show you the finish products.

I am praying...that my mom is feeling better today.

Around the house...finish the front flower beds. My mother-in-law helped me put mulch down yesterday and I need to finish this week. I am going to do my pots on Wednesday. I also need to get back into a groove. I was doing really well with doing little projects when Rondell worked in the evening and after the kids went down, but I've slacked off. So, I need to get back into doing that, organizing a drawer, doing a craft, working on this problem (still needing some help)...

One of my favorite things...Strawberry ice cream from Graeter's. That's what I had last night and it was so yummy.

A few plans for the rest of the week...LOTS! Tonight is my last discussion and lecture for BSF for the year (sniff), tomorrow I'm going to my friend Lyndsey's to work on a little project, Wednesday sign up for our pool pass, take Jamison to the eye doctor and yard work, Thursday is our last Crown group (sniff), Friday...NOTHING!, and this weekend yard work.

And you?

It sounds like you had a great Mother's Day. I really don't like to do the hamburger thing, either, but I do love to have them grilled. I hope your mom feels better really soon. :)

Wow, you are busy...but I love that you make lists...please help! ha ha! I keep everything in my head...and that's a good place to lose things! LOL!

Sounds like you had a really nice Mother's Day! Hope your mom is feeling better today!

{btw-Dan got a Nikon D5000 for Mother's Day! I was so surprised, I hadn't even mentioned wanting a new camera! I don't know a thing about it, so I hope to figure out what it can do!}

Aw, that sounds like a great M-Day! So nice you got to spend it with your mom AND avoid touching raw meat. ;-)
Have a great week!

I'm still waiting on your mother-in-law to come to FL so she can help me with some flowerbeds. =) Have you sent her yet? Let's see a picture of your flower beds when they're done. Can't wait.

As always you have a wonderful daybook entry.
I am so with you on needing to get organized. I have worked on photos all weekend so I am hoping to finish them up and place them in albums this week. Hope you also get a lot done around the house this week.

Your comment about not touching raw meat made me chuckle because I am the SAME way!!! I swear I would become a vegitarian overnight if I had to be around raw meat for too long...it is just gross!

Hi Kelli! I loved visiting your blog! It made me smile. I guess I'm one of the few of your friends who doesn't mind digging my hands into hamburger meat - that's what makes meatloaf so yummy, right? See you Thursday.
