Simple Woman's Daybook



Happy Monday, everyone! Hop on over to The Simple Woman and check out what everyone else is doing today!

FOR TODAY October 06, 2008...

Outside My Window... Weak sunshine of an autumn mid morning. Dry leaves, curled and dusty scattered on the patio.

I am thinking... of how nice it would be to go back to bed! I am a sleepy head today. We had a hard weekend, working on the new house. Almost done cleaning, then comes the sorting and unpacking.

I am thankful for...family that are willing to help. My oldest brother helped us move all day Saturday and my parents and son have been a big help over the whole weekend. My honey's uncle helped out, too. My next oldest brother called asking what he could do to help.

From the kitchen... cube steak, fried summer squash (farmer's market) and corn on the cob (farmer's market). Banana cream cake for dessert. The rest of the week we are having sandwhiches or whatever is easiest.

I am wearing... khaki skirt, princess kitty socks with blue housieslippers (my oldest pink ones finally gave up the ghost) and my Mizzou hoodie.

I am creating... favors for the wedding. Almost done! Then boutinnere and my veil.

I am going... to be taking my time unpacking and sorting. I never realized I had so much junk!

I am reading... not a lot these days, too busy. I do try to squeeze in my daily bible reading tho.

I am hoping...that everything goes smoothly on Saturday.

I am hearing...not much, pretty quiet around here. There is a big frog croaking out in the back yard.

Around the house... LAUNDRY! PACKING! Everything else is good, just little touchups here and there.

One of my favorite things...is the smell of a baby fresh from the bath, when you can snuggle them.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: today - pack up things in my room. Tomorrow - finish hauling things out of shed, stove repairman here, finish cleaning at house. Wednesday - VA Hospital in Columbia with Mom and Dad. Thursday - work, any touchup cleaning, make veil. Friday - unpack and sort.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

My bouquet - not quite done yet, but getting there



Favors - the tag will say: Here's a hug and a few kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs. Keith and Raquel October 11, 2008

Hope everyone has a great week! I may be spotty getting on here, but I will be back next week for sure!
