The Simple Woman's Daybook - Monday, June 28, 2010

For today...

Outside my window...
rain. It is supposed to rain all day and then the rest of the week is supposed to be sunny with cooler temps. It was really hot this weekend so it was nice to be able to go to the Spray Park on Saturday and then swimming at my mom's on Sunday...thanks Mommy.

I am thinking...about my first Stampin Up workshop and all of the things that need to be done to prepare. I'm really nervous about it and I hope to have a descent turn out.

I am praying...for my children to adjust well to our new schedule...Caleb had a bit of a rough morning.

I am thankful...for God's grace. I need to work on keeping that knowledge in my heart as well as in my head.

I am reading...nothing, it feels like. I just haven't had much time to read over the past week or so. I'm sure that once our new routine is settled (which I know I keep talking about but it is a big change for us now that my aunt is gone) I'll have more time for reading. I miss it!

I am creating...cards. I made this one for my up-line:

I used a set from the SU! Summer Mini catalog called Bouquet Bunch. I absolutely love it because it has so many possibilities.

From the kitchen...baked ziti, a new pizza bake recipe that I got from a co-worker and I'm going to try and make hummus.

A few plans for the rest of the week...my To Do list for the week, go see Eclipse with my friends Lyndsey and Amber (I just watched New Moon), and have a fun-filled Saturday with a 4th of July parade and our church's Food, Fun & Fireworks event.

It's your turn to share...here.

Can you believe how COOL it's going to be this week?! We had plans to go to Powell's splash park this week, but I don't think we're going to do it until next week. I love that it's going to be cooler! :)

I've never tried stamping! I wanna come to the party!! :) :)

Once in a while a rainy day is a welcome change for us. It is so hot here and that's about the only thing that cuts the heat but it has to rain all day.

New routines are tough. I'm excited to get into one next school year. This summer feels a bit chaotic so far.

Feel free to share the pizza bake recipe ;)

Happy Monday!

I wish it would rain here, to cool us off a bit.

Good luck at your workshop! You will do GReat!

Baked ziti always sounds good, and hummus...yum!

Im soooo jealous that you will get to go see Eclipse! I want to see it so badly but I dont' have anyone to go with :( Hubs doesn't like the serious and I forced him to see New Moon with me...Have fun! Will you be a FFF at church?

Joanna said...

Send cooler temps to FL, please! :-)

I wished we lived close enough...I would so be at your workshop!

Here's hoping to your new schedule all working out...I am sure after some time everything will work in perfect sync.

Ohhh...Eclipse!!! {squee} I won't be going this week..since the kids are going with us to see it, I'll have to wait at least a couple of weeks so it's not so crowded. Kelsie has a hard time seeing over people sometimes. And she won't want to miss one minute of her Jacob screen time! ;-)

Oh how we wish it would rain. I even watered the plants last night hoping that it would rain, that seems to always happen to me.
I love the cute card, I can't wait to hear about your first party.
Have a great day!

It was so hot this weekend, and our air conditioner went out, ick! But we had a nice thunderstorm last night and I'm glad for the cooler temps this week too.

I read a book on vacation and it was so nice to read because I don't ever make time to either. But sounds like your new schedule will be fun with your Stampin Up!

I have zero motivation in the kitchen right now...usually :) But I do love baked ziti...I'll have to make that this week too!

No rain today...but I can feel it getting a little cooler. Thank goodness, because the humidity is killing us. Yuck.
Those cards look amazing. Girl you are so talented. I love it!

Kelli - I LOVE this card! It really is very pretty. Great colors, too. And you know I love the CAS lines.
Hope your prep for the workshop is going well.

I hope the rain leaves quickly! The only rain we have had lately has been little pop up storms in the evenings! Your card is so cute...I know you are going to be making all kinds of cute stuff now that you are a demonstrator!
