Simple Woman's Daybook - 6/27


FOR TODAY June 27, 2011...
Outside My Window...sunny skies, birds chirping, and a slight dew on the ground

I am thinking...today seems like it's going to be a pretty good day - let's keep our fingers crossed on that one ;)

I am thankful for...the blessings God has given me, internet to connect with wonderful friends, and the chance to have a fresh start each day

From the learning rooms...going to make slime with the kiddies today, eeewwww!

From the kitchen...uhhhh dirty dishes (oops) BUT it made me think of this poem by some unknown author...


Thank God for Dirty Dishes,

They have a tale to tell.
While others are going hungry,
We're eating very well.
With home and health and happiness,
I shouldn't want to fuss.
For by this stack of evidence, 
God's very good to us.

I am wearing...my comfy clothes. I still need to get dressed in my day clothes. But these really do feel good. hence the name comfy clothes.

I am creating...am I creating anything? I wish I could say I was but I don't think I am. Maybe memories? But is anything we're doing here now going to make a spectacular memory? I want to be that mom that when my kids look back they can say "oh yea that was AWESOME!".

I am going...to make changes. What changes? You'll just have to wait and see.

I am reading...Here, Home, Hope by Kaira Rouda
I am hoping...that this is not the start of a mid-life crisis.
I am hearing...the kids playing and fighting, and the Casey Anthony trial playing on the tv in the background...oh and the washer just buzzed.
Around the house...I see toys, lots and lots of toys...and clutter. toomuchstuff!
One of my favorite things...a picture I purchased from my photog friend, Nikki - it's a beautiful outdoors picture of a field and 3 crosses. I have it on my fireplace mantle. Year round. When I look at it - it just makes me feel good. Don't you love when a picture can do that? :)
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: VBS this week for Gracie and mine & Kenzie's shared birthday on the 1st.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...one of my favorite things (see above (: )
