Simple Woman's Daybook


Ha, finally got that figured out!

Peggy over at The Simple Woman does the Simple Woman's Daybook on Mondays. Hop on over and take a look, they are fantastic!

FOR TODAY (July 14, 2008)...

Outside My Window... We have bright sunshine and humidity! Summer has finally arrived!

I am thinking... that I still have a lot of laundry to get done today!

I am thankful for...Family. Even though we would like to kick them sometimes, they are always there for us.

From the kitchen...BLTs with our very own fresh tomatoes!!! With strawberry shortcake for dessert. Also I will be making bluberry scones, fresh cherry scones and peach scones.

I am wearing...Khaki skirt, pink T-shirt with embroidered flowers, blue houseslippers and wet hair up in a clip.

I am creating...A Victorian mansion cross-stitch picture.

I am stay home as much as possible this week after vacationing.

I am reading...Jean Plaidy's historical novels. Soooo interesting!

I am hoping...that I can get everything done today.

I am hearing...helicopters. We live near an AFB and they go over all the time.

Around the house... Laundry, vacuuming, pick blueberries.

One of my favorite things... is Fresh tomatoes! I love them sliced with salt and pepper or ranch dressing, in sandwiches, in salad, you name it!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Organize the freezers. Make a couple of aprons - Have to go get some contrast material first. Call my cousin about recovering my 2 chairs.

Here is picture thought I am sharing . . .


This is the old pump at the house where my grandmother was born out by Arcadia, NE.
