A Simple Woman's Daybook

simple-woman-daybook-small.jpg
I am participating in Peggy's Simple Woman's Daybook today.

~For Today~
Monday, July 7, 08

Outside My Window...
Blue skies, green grass and yellow waterlilies.

I am thinking...

how much I love the early morning quiet.


I am thankful for...
good friends that celebrate the holidays with us.

From the kitchen...

Monday-Taco Salad
Tuesday-Homemade Pizza
Wednesday-Honeyed Chicken Teriyaki
Thursday-Garlic Chicken Spaghetti
Friday-Green chile chicken and tortillas

I am wearing...
black pajama pants and T-shirt.

I am creating...
an embroidered hankie and lavender filled heart sachet.

I am reading...
Circle of Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini

I am hoping...
the girls and Benjamin do well at their first swim lesson today.

I am hearing...
birds singing and the water garden fountain.

Around the house...
everything is tidy and ready for a new week.

One of my favorite things...
decorating with seashells

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
We have swim lessons every day this week. I'm going to start practicing piano again and order pictures for our family photo albums.

Here is a picture that I am sharing...

Sunflower
Emily's sunflower in full bloom.

Thank you for reading my Daybook!

Kelli,

Are you still in your pajama pants? :)

Your daughter's sunflower is beautiful! I've tried planting sunflowers but the squirrels always eat the plant before it gets very big.

Emily's sunflower is so lovely! Your menu is very tasty sounding! We are having chicken chicken and more chicken this week - great sales!
