The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today...  Monday, August 3, 2015

Outside my window... Already warm but overcast and calm.  It is supposed to be a scorcher today.

I am thinking... That I am glad my guys were able to get my laptop upgraded to Microsoft 10 after 4 days of working on it.

I am thankful for....  The fact that the people I work with are great.

From the kitchen...

~Monday: BBQ Steak, Pasta Salad, Corn on the Cob
~Tuesday: Hubby Cooks
~Wednesday: Out
~Thursday:  Hubby Cooks
~Friday: Camping - Hot Dogs over the fire
~Saturday: Family BBQ
~Sunday: Spaghetti & Meat Sauce, Tossed Salad

I am wearing... Black maxi skirt and a loose dark pink top

I am creating... A daily working journal

I am reading... "The Prodigal Daughter" by Jeffrey Archer

I am praying for...  My Uncle who is experiencing health problems

Pondering these words... The Indonesian phrase gotong-royong (got-ong roi-ong) communicates that when people come together “to carry a heavy burden,” the burden is lightened because it is shared.

I am hoping... That we have good weather for our weekend camping

I am hearing... Typing, papers being moved, talking in the background (yes, I am working on this during class - lol)

One of my favorite things... Learning new things

A few plans for the rest of the week...

~Monday:  School and work
~Tuesday:  School, office work, get the trailer ready for camping
~Wednesday: School, errands, coffee with daughter, small group
~Thursday:  School and work
~Friday:  School and then heading out for a weekend of camping in the mountains
~Saturday: Camping and hopefully some kayaking
~Sunday: Heading home

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Around Our Sunday Table - Simple Blooms

Thou hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, - a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
~George Herbert~

It is hard to believe that here we are in the middle of July.
The year is half gone- how quickly time goes by!
As we gather around our Sunday table
it is time for us to stop and reflect
on the many things we have to be thankful for.

That are daughter decided to move back to this area
to be closer to family.
What a delight to have her at family events
and home for Sunday dinners.

Of my family who are 110% supportive
of my going back to school.

That I am able to work and go to school
at the same time without either conflicting.

Veggies from my parents large garden
that they bless us with since I didn't have
put in a garden this year knowing I
wouldn't have time to keep it up.

Camping trips with the family.
We've been able to fit a few of these in this summer
and a few more are planned.

The beautiful summer weather we've been having.

What are you thankful for today?
