Simple Woman's Day Book

FOR TODAY July 28, 2008...

Outside My Window... There is a gentle drizzle falling, dripping off of the thirsty plants. The basil is looking lovely and so is the peppermint.

I am thinking... that I sure would enjoy a nice cold glass of Tea right now!

I am thankful for... knowing how to can. My mother taught me how and every year, I find new things to make!

From the kitchen... Sweet and Sour Meatballs on rice, black berry cobbler for dessert.

I am wearing...Navy skirt, my eagles T-shirt, pony tail and of course my slippers!

I am creating... a cat quilt. That is, I want to, I have ordered the material, just have to sit down and plan it all out when it gets here.

I am going... to Osceola this coming weekend. Only about an hour south of here, but my good friend wants me to go and meet his aunt and uncle. They have a cheese store there, too, so maybe I can get some of that cherry white cheddar I have been wanting to try!

I am reading... Nothing at the moment, time for a trip to the library.

I am hoping...that my book from my good friend Marie in England will get here soon!

I am hearing... my kittie purring. DS wore him out this morning chasing the laser pointer.

Around the house... vacuuming, some cooking to take to my auntie who is sick. She had shoulder surgery and now has a staph infection in the joint, now has become allergic to the antibiotics which were making her sick anyway. We are going to make some things to stick in the freezer for her. That is about it, we got quite a lot done this weekend.

One of my favorite things... is homemade bread. Hot from the oven, dripping with butter and honey - now you're talking!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Go to auntie's tomorrow. Library and bank Tuesday morning. Making some mint jelly, almond syrup and peach-vanilla syrup. If I can find some good cucumbers, making some mustard pickles.

Here is picture thought I am sharing ...

Our hardy hibiscus. These things are as big as a dinner plate!

I confess to being jealous of your rain. It's really dry here. I used to can a lot but don't do it any more. I no longer have access to fresh produce unless I buy it at the grocery store and it's just not the same. Blessings, marlene

You have rain!! We had a little bit last night, but nothing to write home about - we need lots more to nourish our plants and to cool the air.
Love and God bless ~Chrissy

Rain-I think I remember rain-we haven't seen any in a long time. Love your sweet blog.

We got some rain on Saturday night, Sunday it was even more humid.:-(

Perhaps you could do a post about the cheese shop, I'd kill for some decent cheese.

Lovely post as always, Raquel.
