The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, May 20, 2012

Outside my window... Blue sky and sunshine and a brisk breeze.

I am thinking... How much I enjoy the weekends.

I am thankful for... My hubby who works hard to provide for his family.

From the kitchen...

~Monday: Pork & Broccoli, Rice, Salad, Brownie Sundaes
~Tuesday: Baked or BBQ Sausage, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Peas & Carrots, Salad, Banana Cream Pie

~Friday: Crockpot Mushroom Pork Chops, Perogies, Corn, Salad, Banana Cream Pie
~Saturday: Leftover Smorg

I am wearing... Jeans and a cream shirt.

I am creating... Pots of flowers.

I am going... To church.

I am reading... Small Changes for a Better Life by Elizabeth George

I am praying for...My daughter to find a job for the summer.

Pondering these words... Remember who you are and whom you serve.

I am still hoping... The weather will finally warm up as the nights are still near freezing.

I am hearing... The air purifier, otherwise the house is still quiet.

Around the house... We are picking up a picnic table that a friend is giving us and we will be putting it in a shaded area near the back garden.  So looking forward to that!

One of my favorite things... Being outside!

A few plans for the rest of the week... Finish up rose garden, Plant herbs in pots, Transplant flowers, Finish planting in garden, Weeding in garden, Work in the "Forgotten Garden" - hmmm a lot of gardening this week with one day for shopping, haircuts and other errands, and hopefully checking out some yard sales on the weekend with hubby :)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

The top of my fridge has a fresh new look for summer :)
