The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Saturday April 21, 2012

Outside my window... It is dark outside.

I am thinking... That I still need to pack an overnight bag for our trip tomorrow as well as a munchie bag for the drive.  I am looking forward to picking up our daughter from college but not looking forward to the long drive.

I am thankful for... The fact that my daughter is spending the summer at home this year.

From the kitchen... We will be travelling for the next few days but tonight I made a pasta casserole that will be quick and easy to reheat when we get home.

I am wearing... Pajamas.

I am creating... Some Mother's Day Cards

I am going... To pick up my daughter!

I am reading... What Happened to My Life? Finding New Passion, Purpose and Joy by Dana Demetre

I am praying for... Safe travels and my dad as he has to go see his cardiologist since he is having some problems.  It has been a year since his double by-pass surgery.

Pondering these words... To have and to hold from this day forward.

I am still hoping... That the weather will really begin to warm up.

I am hearing... My son typing on his computer, the air purifier running, and classical music playing softly.

Around the house... I need to start - and finish - our income tax (due on the 30th)

One of my favorite things... Sunshine

A few plans for the rest of the week...
~Sunday: Drive, pick up daughter, load all her stuff from her dorm
~Monday: Drive home, vote
~Tuesday:  Unload everything my daughter brought home and try to find a spot for it for the summer.
~Wednesday: Garden...Plant sweat peas and clean out strawberries & fertilize
~Thursday: Shopping
~Friday: Garden...Transplant Delphiniums
~Saturday: Start getting decks ready for summer

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

I made these Solar Light Jars this week to give to my mom for Mother's Day
and I just loved the way the light pattern reflected off the counter in this picture.
