The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, July 15, 2012

Outside my window... Cloudy and it looks like it might rain.

I am thinking... What a great time we had in the mountains yesterday.

I am thankful for... The safe travels we had and the good weather we had.

From the kitchen...
~Today: Roast Chicken, Buns, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Corn, Broccoli with Cheese Sauce, Tossed Salad, Chocolate Roll
~Monday: BBQ with parents
~Tuesday: Teriyaki Beef & Mushrooms, Rice, Baked Zucchini, Ceasar Salad, Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble
~Wednesday: Parmesean Fish, Parmesean Potatoes, Green Beans, Carrots, Salad, Chocolate Roll
~Thursday: Chicken Penne Florentine Bake, Ceasar Salad, Chocolate Marble Cake
~Friday: Simple Chicken Bake, Baked Vegetables, Salad, Leftover Dessert
~Saturday: Leftover Smorg

I am wearing... Black capris, rust ruffled tank top.

I am creating... A birthday gift for my mom.

I am reading... A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George

I am praying for... Friends.

Pondering these words... Dost thou love life?  Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.  ~Benjamin Franklin~

I am still hoping... To go camping for a few days.

I am hearing...  The massage chair and the fans running.

Around the house... I need to do some cleaning.

One of my favorite things... Mountain air.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Hubby is on holidays so nothing is set in stone this week but gardening and working on removing an old dog run from the yard.  Saturday is the air show!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

A rose from my garden.
