The Simple Woman's Daybook - August 24, 2009


For today...

Outside my window...
blue skies and sunshine once again. The temperature is lower today, in the 70's and I love it.

I am thinking...
about what I should do this week. I have a few things that I would like to tackle, like the kids' rooms, the basement and my room, but I don't want to overwhelm myself so I need to figure out a plan.

I am thankful for...
talks with my husband.

From the kitchen...
burgers on the grill, Chinese (thanks to my mom), BLTs, meatloaf and mac and cheese, breakfast and pizza on Friday. There is a Little Caesar's opening near our house this week and we'll have to stop by on Friday! Saturday we're having a Small Group get together, so we'll eat dinner there.

I am reading...
the book of Daniel. This study has me so wrapped up that I'm fully concentrating on it right now. I do plan on reading Captivating next.

I am praying...
for a better handle on our finances.

I am creating...
My plan is to put together a system for papers and materials needed for homework. I'm still trying to figure it all out.

Around the house...
a lot of cleaning to do. I have been slacking on that lately.

One of my favorite things...
hearing Jamison and Caleb have a conversation. Caleb is starting to talk better and it is so much fun to listen to them interact (when they're not screaming).

A few plans for the rest of the week...
tonight my mom might bring over Chinese (yum), Wednesday we are taking Jamison to Red Lobster for lunch and then my friend Tonya is coming over that evening, Friday Tonya and I are going to my Stampin Up rep's house to do some crafting, and Saturday we have the neighbor's birthday party and then our Small Group social.

I love talks with my husband too! Once again I am wishing for your weather here in Texas! I hope you have a great week ;)

Katie said...

Yeah, I'm ready for my dinner invitation anytime:) You sound pretty organized to me! I also need to get a better handle on cleaning. It's just so much work to keep up with everything. It's an unending battle!

The weather here has been gorgeous today...and it is supposed to be all week! So much better than the rainy week we had last week! We have little caesar's about 15 minutes from here and we get the $5 pizzas all the time! You can't beat that!

What good plans Kelli! Your menu sounds great for this week. I am going to make some BLT's with tomatoes from my garden - yum.

Have a wonderful week!

Well, let me know if there is a great system for papers... I'm an organizational nut, and the only papers I can seem to coral are MINE. Everyone else just stashes them here and there... Good luck.
