The Simple Woman's Day(night)book - May 25, 2009


For today...

Outside my window...
it's dark. I didn't think I would be able to blog today but I found some time. There's a nice cool breeze. It was a beautiful day.

I am thinking...that I can't believe I'm up after 10. I'm usually in bed by now, but I'm up...must have been the late nap I took today.

I am thankful for...my little brother. I love that kid and it was an honor to be able to be there for his graduation. He's just a genuine person and even though we're 14 1/2 years apart we still have a bond. Congrats Evan!

From the kitchen...We cooked out today, just me, my mom and Rondell. We had steak, brats, burgers, mac and cheese, baked beans, deviled eggs, and strawberry pretzel dessert (have you ever had this...it's so good). Later this week I'm going to make stuffed shells!

I am wearing...capris and a blue t-shirt. Comfy.

I am reading...UGH!!! Nothing. I asked my aunt to get a book for me from the library and I asked for the wrong one. I was all snuggled last week, ready to dive into a James Patterson, when I realized that I have already read 6th Target. So, back to the library to get 7th Heaven. The good thing...I'm not as far behind in his books as I though.

I am hoping...it's not to hard to get out of bed in the morning!

I am creating...a beautiful backyard...or I am trying at least. My honey helped me put some more mulch down and we also put down some pavers. I'll show you pictures in the next day or so.

I am praying...to continue to improve my prayer life. And that I will stay focused in the Word this summer.

Around the house...same old stuff, cleaning out. We will probably get a lot done this week because Rondell doesn't have to work at Best Buy. We need to clean our carpets badly!

One of my favorite things...seeing family and friends. I saw so many people that I love this weekend and it was wonderful.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Yard work, housework, and packing...I leave for Atlanta on Friday (more on that later!).

What's in your book?

What a busy week you have had. I always love your daybook. I am glad someone else cleans their carpet. I try to clean ours at least once a month or two at the most. With an indoor dog it is a must. I am sorry I haven't commented much this week as I also have been enjoying the great outdoors.
