The Simple Woman's Daybook

I'm back!

FOR TODAY ~May 19th~

Outside My Window... are different shades of new green leaves and blossoms—chokecherry and lilac. It thrills me to see everything green up like this!

I am thinking... about the Monday catch-up things to do and how to beautify the outside of my house with growing things.

I am thankful for... the peace a day of routine brings in the midst of delightful (but very busy) visits and projects and such.

From the kitchen... peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies, fried ham and onions with mashed potatoes, plenty of Monday morning coffee with half ‘n’ half.

I am wearing... my brown nursing dress, hair in a flippy ponytail, bare feet.

I am creating... order out of weekend clutter!

I am going... to try to catch up with some laundry today. I wonder … it looks kind of cloudy out … do you suppose it will rain on my clothes if I hang them out?

I am reading... the different places to go and people to see from my calendar … a busy week!

I am hoping... to be able to spend some time outside soaking in sunshine and gardening … it looks like the temperature will be warm enough!

I am hearing... just the sound of the computer and refrigerator running. I’ll need to change that! There’s a washing machine to be reloaded and books on tape to be listened to, I think it’s warm enough to open a couple of windows again too.

Around the house... is laundry to be folded, dishes to be washed, meat thawing to be cooked, floors to be vacuumed … ok, I’m going now.

One of my favorite things... evening gardening with my man and now my Rosebud.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
Visiting with my sister and cousin at my house tomorrow and Wednesday, hopefully planting the rest of our garden with my man, seeing my good friend Em and her precious girlie visiting from Texas on Thurs., finishing up the organizing project in my closet, maybe getting our boat fixed in time for Memorial Day weekend boating on the lake?

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

*sigh* I envy your "greening up"- we've gone brown & dry, not uncommon this time of year, but I miss seeing the green rolling hills.
Looks like you have a good start on your garden~ twelve tomatoes?!
