The Simple Woman's Daybook




Outside my window is a freshly mown lawn, an idle ladybug swing, an old dog dozing under the rhododendron and a young dog following suit.

I am thinking about summer goals and plans: swim, help Mom in her garden, keep up with own gardens, keep up with home-schoolings, visit cousins more, read more books, continue the great purging.

I am thankful for quiet mornings at home.

From the kitchen waft the the smells of BonAmi. Dandy has cleaned up the kitchen in preparation for a big cooking frenzy this afternoon.

I am wearing
clean jeans and a t-shirt and flip-flops.

I am creating
to-do lists that are longer than the day is.

I am going
to wash that gray almost out of my hair. I'm leaving my forelock gray as we are all going to have to get used to it pretty soon; I'm sick of dyeing it.

I am reading
home-schooling materials.

I am hoping
become a more patient and gentle Mom.

I am hearing
birdcalls..

Around the house
are many gardens full of weeds.

One of my favorite things good food.

A few plans for the rest of the week are yet to be determined.

Here is picture thought I am sharing

I should get busy making summer goals, too. Otherwise these few months will just zoom on by. They always seem to. Can't believe it's already June.

1st Saturday photohunt is hosted by http://tnchick.com each Saturday--there is a list of the upcoming topics in the sidebar. It is a huge group but have been doing it for a while and have a group of "regulars" that I check out and they check mine. It is a fun weekend thing.
I read and enjoyed your daybook--I love it because I can see where everyone is each week. Of course I read it a bit ago and left the haloscan comments sitting open so now don't remember what you actually said, because I am a ditz like that and read a whole bunch of other posts in between because I was eating.

I love that photo, absolutely gorgeous and brings back memories of canal holidays.
I was late signing the Mr Linky for the daybook, oops.
