The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, July 22, 2012

Outside my window... Blue skies and sunshine.  It is going to be a hot day.

I am thinking... What a great day we had yesterday at the air show.

I am thankful for... Only minor sunburns after a day in the blazing sun.

I am wearing... Denim capris and a pink t-shirt.

I am creating... Birthday cards for my mom and mother-in-law.

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

I am praying for... Family and friends.

Pondering these words...To cultivate the sense of the beautiful, is one of the most effectual ways of cultivating an appreciation of the Divine goodness ~Christian Nestell Bovee~

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

I am hearing...  The kettle boiling, the dog drinking water, hubby talking to daughter in the kitchen, the fans running.

Around the house... Need to do some tidying up.

One of my favorite things... Jets

A few plans for the rest of the week... Quiet week around the home this week as hubby is back at work.  Gardening is #1 priority and finishing up a few projects.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
