The Simple Woman's Daybook~ May 19


I recently became familiar with Peggy's blog after reading entries by several bloggers who particpate each week in The Simple Woman's Daybook carnival. It looks like so much fun that I thought I would give it a try. Mondays are generally a bit busy for me, so having a regular posting format to fall back on should help get my wheels turning. :)


FOR TODAY, MAY 19, 2008...

Outside my window...the sun is shining and the trees are swaying slightly in the breeze.

I am thinking...about all the things on my to-do list. It is a l-o-n-g list this week, but I will just do what I am able to do and take one day at a time.

I am thankful for...having a helper clean my kitchen today. My mother-in-law did some deep cleaning while the rest of us were out in the schoolhouse working on lessons.

From the kitchen...We're having BLT sandwiches, baby carrots, and grapes for lunch today. I cheat and use turkey bacon on our BLT's. They still taste great.

I am wearing...a bright green shirt, a tan skirt, and my favorite pair of Crocs flip-flops.

I am creating...a mess in the schoolhouse as I work on year-end reports and cull through papers. The shredder is my friend. :)


I am going...to play outside with the children this afternoon. I hope it's still breezy then!

I am reading...several books, including A Sister's Test by Wanda Brunstetter.

I am hoping...that the realtor calls today. I'll share more about this soon.

I am hearing...Buddy barking, children talking all at once, and Grandma working in the kitchen.

Around the house...laundry, laundry, and more laundry!

One of my favorite things...jasmine--it smells so sweet!

A few plans for the rest of the week: We'll be taking Grandma to the airport Tuesday and attending Bookworm's piano recital that evening. The rest of the week will be filled with ordinary things like school, running errands, prayer meeting, a hopefully a trip to the park.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Glad you did this. I love that vine. I tried planting Jasmine a couple years ago and it just set there and never did anything! :(

Your front porch is gorgeous! I don't even have room for ONE rocking chair let alone 4 that I see here! What a treasure!
Oh, and using turkey bacon is not cheating ...it is the more healthy choice :)
Enjoy your week...I will check out this person's blog and think about joining this!

That is one thing about laundry....it never ends. There is always a basket to wash or a basket to fold/put away.

great post, I will visit Peggy's site.

Oh, Confederate Jasmine is another favorite flower of mine; I forgot about that one! I think I have a thing for those sweet smelling flowers - lol. Turkey bacon is not cheating ... the children and I love turkey bacon and prefer it. (Daddy likes his pork!). :o)
