Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today ~ Monday, July 28, 2008

Outside My 5:30 this morning, when it was too early to turn on the computer the sun was just coming up over the mountains to our east.  It reminded me that Jesus is coming again... soon I hope.

I am thinking... We start school tomorrow, so today is our last big hoorah of the summer.

I am thankful good health (at least that I know of) and for my husband who is always in love with me, even when I am unloveable.

From the kitchen...experimented with a slow-cooker rice pudding last week, and today the girls want to try a different recipe.  Alizona's banging around out there cooking some rice.

I am creating...nothing at the moment.  Many moons ago a friend gave us all the materials we need to make a darling crib quilt.  The blocks aren't all the same size, and we don't know what to do next, but guilt is motivating me to figure something out!

I am the library for some "holds", a couple of books for Booklover, by Patricia Reilly Giff .

I am wearing...khaki skirt (what else), cream tank with denim shirt over. Bare feet.

I am reading
...1 Kings, and Women in Ministry, by Mrs. Sargent.     

I am hoping... we get a good school routine down this year.

I am hearing...Booklover babbling in her "kitchen", and Carrotlover hollering for her sister through the heat vent "phone", lol.
Around the house ... finish last week's laundry and do something else worthwhile to earn my keep here.

One of my favorite things... hearing Emily singing out in church!

A few plans for the rest of the week... Well, school.  Grocery shopping, maybe a trip to the lake on Wednesday afternoon, church Thursday night, and our monthly nursing home service this coming Sunday afternoon.  Also need to start thinking about the next issue of our church ladies' newsletter.
And sometime this week, Alizona's last violin lesson, boo hoo!!! No, she is not quitting.  Her teacher is moving out of state.   Now what?

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

  1. What a great Daybook post! How I wish I had daughters - yours sound like they're such fun to bring up!

    Love the "Obama" sign - very funny!!

    God bless ~Chrissy

    Sorry your daughter is leaving her violin lessons. Is that the one you were trying to encourage?

    Love the Obama sign. That's the truth.

  3. I love rice pudding! How did it turn out?

  4. Let me try this. A taxpayer voting for Obama is like the deer handing the hunter the bullets.

    Oh LoL! I just don't know if that's really funny or just really sad.

    As far as your daughter giving up violin can't she always pick it up later if she desires. My husband's sister didn't start playing until she was 28 and is now a very accomplished musician, I on the other hand will master the violin, piano, and maybe even the french horn in heaven...really:-). Oh and sing, I'll sing as never before! I'm lookin forward to it!

    Blessings, Julie

  5. I enjoyed reading your daybook. I love the Obama sign!

  6. Love the sign... that's great!

  7. WooHoo, look at you - 3 columns + a Daybook! Nice job! Sorry to hear about Alison's violin teacher, but glad she is giving Alison the tools to carry on. LOVE the picture! It must not be from near you - too many clouds & greenery. Have a good week my dear friend! I have to get busy today and can 7 more quarts of beans + we have friends over at noon. Had a great evening last night, the girls rode their horses after the beans were picked.

    OK, so your teacher is leaving. That's pretty depressing too. I don't know what we'd do if our music teachers up and left us. Did she give you some names to find another teacher?

    Oh, and I'd go for the idea of not eating, but not the wearing the same clothes. :-D


  9. So sorry for the mix up concerning daughter's violin lessons. I guess I need to heed my own instruction to my kiddos concerning reading something thorougly to gain a full understanding. Interestingly, my husband and I both played clarinet in band as kids and teenagers. Our oldest daughter (age 9) is also thinking of taking it up for our local homeschool band.

    I pray that your school day is blessed!

    Blessings, Julie

  10. LOL about that sign!

    I hope you are having a good Summer!
