Simple Woman's Daybook - Sept 15th

You can find out more about the Simple Woman's Daybook here.

For today, September 15th, 2008

Outside My Window... the sun is rising and the sky is perfectly clear.

I am thinking ... about what a crazy weekend we had even though we barely left the house.

I am thankful for... a good haircut.

From the kitchen ... making my Cinnamon-Raisin Bread, again, and some pesto. These recipes and my weekly menu can be found at To Every Meal There Is A Season (Roasted Chicken, Squash Bread Pudding, Crazy Colcannon, Chicken & Veg. Soup).

I am wearing ... it is still pretty early, so I'm still in PJs and my robe.

I am creating ... a special day for my son.

I am going ... to take the kids out to get my caramel apples, as requeted by my birthday boy.

I am reading ... "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" by Lisa See.

I am hoping ... that we are rid of the critters that invaded us. (You'll have to come back later today or tomorrow for that story).

I am hearing ... a jingling bell on my cat's collar as she gets herself all clean and pretty for the day. My birthday boy sniffling (I think a couple of us have fall allergies starting up).

Around the house... there are stacks and stacks of laundry to be washed, folded, and put away (each of those represents a seperate "stack" -or heap). This is also related to those invading critters.

One of my favorite things... my really wonderful down pillows which are now sealed up in a plastic bag waiting for two weeks to make sure any remaining critters are done for. Sigh...I miss my pillow.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:

  • Today is my middle boy's birthday! He's 9! His dad will take him out this morning for breakfast. While he's gone the other kids and I will got get his gifts, wrap them and have them ready when he returns. Then this evening, we'll have his favorite meal of tacos before we enjoy yummy caramel apples!

  • We are having an "at home" vacation this week. We've decided to spend that week doing a little backyard fixing up. The kids have been asking for us to build a sand-box...and maybe a fort of some sort. So, that is what we are doing. Hubby and I are also hoping for time to get some bushes moved and new ones planted...maybe even a tree!

  • On Saturday, we go for our fingerprint appointment for our adoption and then right after to our Supper Club. This is a group from church with whom we have become very close over the years we've been meeting for Supper Club.
