The Simple Woman's Daybook - June 29, 2009

For today...

Outside my window...blue skies and sunshine. It's supposed to rain some this week and beautiful the other days.

I am thinking...about things I need to do this week.

I am thankful for...a great Small Group social last night. Our Small Group has been through some changes this year, some tough. There were times that I felt disconnected from the group and wondered if it would ever be the same. But last night we had our first summer social and it was like old times. We had great food and conversation and the kids all played very well together. I'm bummed that I forgot my camera and have no pictures.

From the kitchen...no plans. I made pasta salad last night for our social, but I didn't think any further than that. I will say that I now have Ragu in the cabinets (remember this) because my cool friend Jodie bought me four jars...how thoughtful.

I am reading...Following God With All Your Heart by Elizabeth George. It is very good so far. I have to make myself put the book down!

I am hoping...for nice weather on the 4th. Our church has a Food, Fun and Fireworks event every year and I hope the weather is not too hot and no rain so we can all have a great time. If you're in the Gahanna, Ohio area, feel free to stop by...it's free.

I am creating...an activity plan for Jamison for the summer. I want to have outlined activities for her to do this summer, art projects, learning activities, outdoor play, etc.

I am praying...for obedience is some areas...the prayers are really working, so I'm going to keep going.

Around the house...is a mess. We were busy all weekend so I didn't get much done.

One of my favorite things...having Rondell home on Sundays.

A few plans for the week...CLEAN! I am planning on working on projects around the house that don't cost anything, cleaning closets, deep cleaning the kitchen, etc. Wednesday the kids and I are going to my friend Lyndsey's brother's fire station with Lyndsey and our friend Amber. I can't wait to see Caleb on the fire truck! We are off on Friday so I'm hoping we can get to the pool. Saturday Caleb and I are going to a parade and Jamison and Rondell will be at Home Depot for their monthly project...and then the big fireworks.

I need to do some serious cleaning too! The house was actually picked up all week with Dan gone and us being so busy...but over the weekend, it sure seemed to go downhill fast! ha ha! But glad Dan's home and we are home to relax! Hope you get to the pool...we hope to do some swimming too!

I'm reading an Elizabeth George book too, "A Mom After God's Own Heart"! It's okay so far. I'm not totally into it, but reading it nonetheless.
