The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today...

Outside my's still dark, and a cardinal just flew up into my tree. He's really striking against the green foliage.

I am thinking...that we may buy a second vehicle from our pastor this week, and what a blessing it would be to get the kids out of the house myself for the first time since April of 2007.

I am thankful family's visit this weekend from Ohio, and a really powerful time of worship yesterday.

From the produce is rotting toooooo fast! Hang on watermelon, hold on peaches, I'll freeze you!

I am creating...time to teach the Firecracker Princess to read using this book.

I am the gym a couple of times today, this is my last week to do it before the Music Man starts his fall schedule!

I am wearing...gym clothes, of course.

I am reading...My Utmost for His Highest, Wickett's Remedy

I am hoping...that SOMETHING in my garden will grow, so far NOTHING buy one solitary tomato!

I am hearing...the Chubby Cheeked Monster eating his cereal in the background, the hum of the AC

Around the house...things are actually pretty tidy since we cleaned quite a bit for my family's visit. Need to keep it up with guests in two weeks!

One of my favorite friends, they are just fantastic and continue to surprise me.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... hit the gym a few times, perhaps buy a second (and VERY second-hand) car, small group, Music Man does three half-days with the band.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...The Music Man put the Look Alike in the high chair to entertain her for a bit, and decided to showcase her adorableness yet again.

I am lol-ing over your eagerness to get out with the kids. I went to the grocery store this morning with my two, and here I am 35 weeks prego...and all I could think was...I would have to be INSANE to try this with three! I suppose the time will come though.
