A Simple Woman's Daybook

I am participating in Peggy's Simple Woman's Daybook today.

~For Today~
Monday, August 4, 08

Outside My Window...

the sun is shining and yellow sunflowers are reaching for the sky.

I am thinking...

we have a busy week ahead. Good friends of ours are getting married and Phillip is the best man, Benjamin is the ring bearer and Grace and Emily are the flower girls.

I am thankful for...

days off from school.


From the kitchen...

Monday~Skillet Chicken Parmesan
Tuesday~
Homemade Pizza
Wednesday~
Garden Fresh Taco Salad
Thursday~Rehearsal Dinner

Friday~Wedding Dinner

I am wearing...

blue jean capris and a black shirt.


I am creating...

a wedding card and an apron for the bride.

I am reading...

Keeping Life Simple
by Karen Levine

I am hoping...

I find the perfect outfit for the wedding.


I am hearing...

the washer and dryer.

Around the house...

everything is tidy, but in need of a deep clean. I'm going to start this morning.


One of my favorite things...

pink flower girl dresses.


A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:

On Thursday, the bride's father will drop the wedding flowers off at my house. Friday morning the groom's mother and sister will arrive to put the bouquets together. I've been told they have pictures of how everything should look which is good because flower arranging is not my thing!


Here is a picture that I am sharing...


Pie
Two fresh blueberry pies that Emily and I made this weekend. The recipe and more pictures are on the main page of my blog.

Thank you for reading my Daybook and I hope you have a great start to your week!

Weddings are so fun! It is wonderful that you all can be involved. My Grace so wants to be a flower girl one day! No one is getting married anytime soon, so I guess she'll have to wait some more. Have a wonderful week, my friend. And keep cool!

I love making aprons for new brides! In fact, I just bought some material today to make one for an upcoming wedding.

Those blueberry pies look delicious!! We may just have to make some here too.

Thanks for always sharing such wonderful things with all of us!
