Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY June 22, 2009...

Outside my window... The sun is shining, my newly planted flowers around the pool are perky and pretty and the puppy is chewing everything in sight...which is why she is outside my window and not in my house!

I am thinking... about how much a long for the lazy days of summer instead of the crazy days of summer.

I am thankful for... My daddy and my sweet husband, two GREAT Fathers! Happy belated Father's Day

From the learning rooms... a smithering of math and some reading, nothing else, although I desperately need to order curriculum and get registered.

From the kitchen... The apple pie I promised Tigerfan for Father's Day weekend finally came out of the oven at 11:00 last night. Taco's for lunch with some homemade chips and supper will be picnic style because we are working at a Sport's camp this week.

I am wearing... Workout clothes. I HATE getting up at 5:00 a.m. but I LOVE how I feel after I have done it and I love the two hours (sometimes) that I get all to myself before the kiddos roll out of bed!

I am creating... a need for therapy when my children reach adulthood. I have been a little stressed out resulting in some very unChristlike outbursts. I spent a lot of time with my Heavenly Father this morning asking forgiveness and strength. Maybe this week will be better.

I am going... to try to relax and enjoy the day with my children. We also are going to work at a Sport's Camp this week for underprivileged children, hopefully it will be a good opportunity for my kids to see missions in action.

I am reading... nothing at the moment. I have read several good books this summer but feel the need to hold off on a new one till after the Sports Camp

I am hoping... my sister gets to come see us in a couple of weeks...Love you, S.

I am hearing... Tigercub in the kitchen...I left him alone with a tiny bowl of Cheerios and milk so I could type this (I know, so not getting Mother of the Year, again!) Also the T.V. coming on as the first of the "Big kids" emerges from his room.

Around the house... Finally have the boys room painted and redecorated and my wall words up! Laundry needs to be done and the kitchen cleaned but mostly I am just letting it go this week!

One of my favorite things... Being outside early in the morning. No kids, no noise, just my quiet time and watering flowers--so peaceful!

A few plans for the rest of the week: This week will revolve mostly around the Sports Camp, not many plans beyond that.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

This is why Pop Ice was created! Ah, those dog days of summer!
