Simple Woman's Daybook


FOR TODAY: July 21, 2008...

Outside My Window... I am seeing beautiful flowers. Red, white and pink geraniums with spike and blue lobelia. So very pretty.

I am thinking... that I need to go to the library this evening.

I am thankful for... air conditioning. Summer has started here with a vengance. It was 97 yesterday and supposed to be 102 today. With about 100% humidity.

From the kitchen... Chocolate cherry jam being made this evening, hamburger stroganoff and a green salad with fresh tomatoes.

I am wearing... Navy twill skirt, gray Red-Cross T-shirt and my houseslippers.

I am creating... a lap quilt. All in pinks, to match in my room of course!

I am going... to postpone our single's meeting a week, as the only other lady is going to be out of town and I do not want to be the only girl.

I am reading... John Bellairs. He fascinates me.

I am hoping... that they still have tangerine juice at Wal-Mart. I want to make some jelly and that would be perfect.

I am hearing... not much, the kitties are sleeping and it is quiet outside- for once.

Around the house... There is laundry to be done and I need to sweep the floors.

One of my favorite things... is my cat. He is so loveable!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Clean my closet. It is embarassing! Also wash my car and get Keith to look at my brakes. Call my friend Amy and see if she would like to watch a DVD with me.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

This is my loveable cat, Moodie! Check out his whiskers!

Hop on over to The Simple Woman and check out all of the other daybooks. While you are there, make your own! Loads of fun!
