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...
