The Simple Woman's Daybook--June 23rd


Outside my Window...an absolutely gorgeous blue sky, with temperatures in the seventies. A wonderful change from the crazy summer rains of the past few days.

I am thinking...that if I don't clean off my desk soon, I may never find the actual surface.

I am thankful for...my Venti White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks--my Monday treat. I desperately needed coffee this morning. :)

From the kitchen...making something with the potatoes, tomatoes and onions I picked up at the fresh market this weekend. Baking brownies with SS#1 to sell at church this weekend to raise money for the Kids Helping Kids project to benefit New Life for Haiti.

I am creating...summer plans. But always trying to remember that I'm not ultimately in control of those plans.

I am going...to pick up SS#1 from camp at noon, then he'll spend the rest of the day "helping" me in the office.

I am wearing...black trousers with a dotted summer blouse and black sandals.

I am reading..."Persepolis" by Marjane Satrapi, the common reader for our incoming freshmen.

I am hoping...to really get some organizing accomplished this week.

I am hearing...the trucks and cars driving by.

Around the house...always laundry, but also some serious garage sale sorting.

One of my favorite things...is to go to bed with a really clean house.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...take SS#1 to the dentist tomorrow, attack the closets with a vengeance, baking and cooking. Oh, and working on Saturday :( as we have nearly 800 high school students on campus for a leadership conference.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you... "The Walk to Paradise Garden" by W. Eugene Smith. One of my favorite photos.

Hope you know the drill by now. Go see Peggy for more posts!
