The Best Thing I've Heard All Week

     A brilliant friend of mine (Hi Amy) called her new boyfriend a 'gentleman savage' on Facebook this week, and it struck a chord ...

Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY July 6, 2009...
Outside my window...the sun is shining down on the world through some light fluffy clouds, the temp hovers around 85 and a gentle breeze blows after last night's thundershowers
I am thinking...that Monday is one of my favorite days, that bread in the oven is one of my favorite smells and that I'm glad to be home raising my boys and taking care of my home while hubby is away working to support us.
I am thankful for...freedom, family, friends and fresh baked bread...I just love alliteration, I can't help myself...LOL
From the learning rooms...nothing official this week. The boys are home are reading everyday, we are finishing up our "Musical Appreciation' Study of the old classic musicals, and enjoying nature, but nothing official
From the kitchen…Bread is baking now...yum~O
~For the rest of the week...let's see

  • Spaghetti with Ground turkey and veggie sauce with fresh french bread

  • Chicken tacos with salad

  • Breakfast for dinner, eggs, bacon, pancakes with juice and fruit

  • Pork chops, Rice and peas

  • Soup and grilled cheese

  • Pizza

  • Birthday party food for T's birthday on Saturday ; )

I am wearing…Capris and a graphic tee, tennies are on to save my back...gotta work tonight
I am creating…empty cabinets, cleared of shelves, and a happy Good Will store as I continue to purge, purge purge our TOO MANY boxes of schtuff in the back room
I am going...no where all week except work until the weekend, then the usual: grocery shopping, errand running, farmer's market, church, race track
I am reading...other simple woman's day book entries, kiddie books and my tired and true recipes
I am hoping...that Dan and 'Shua have a great week at work and stay safe. That my boys have happy memories of growing up at home. And that they all grow up to serve the Lord.
I am hearing...the washer doing my hard work for me, the TV playing a movie for the boys until lunch, the ceiling fans keeping the house cool, and the boys murmuring to one another.
Around the house...there are floors to sweep, lunch to make, shelves to clear, boys to chase, and bathroom to clean.
One of my favorite things...Fourth of July....just makes a person so glad to be free!
A few plans for the rest of the week…Rest and relaxation, purging our belongings (less is MORE) reading, praying, catching up with friends.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...A snappie of us at the racetrack on Saturday. We enjoyed the sunshine, the laughter and camaraderie of family, overpriced snack foods and drinks, cars driving FAST, fireworks and music that made our hearts soar!

Thispost was started by the marlevous Miss Peggy, who is on vacation for the summer, so if you want to read more day books check out Grandma Wren's site. Thanks! ~K~

Ahh... fresh baked bread. My mom used to bake bread a lot, and I loved the way the whole house would smell like bread! Yum! I tell ya... one of these days, you're going to inspire me to plan out a week's worth of meals in advance!! :)

Hi Kristy! I've come across quite a few ladies in this week's daybook who are decluttering. For us it's a huge task but I'm hoping to stick with it until we're completely decluttered and 'free' from all the junk. All the best with your job purging the excesses - you're right that 'less is more'..... and it makes you feel so good when all is done.

Thank you for your visit - have a wonderful week.

ciao for now,
Elena :)
