The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY August 9th....

Outside my window... Hazy, Hot, and Humid... welcome Dog Days of August!

I am thinking... It is time to get serious about getting ready for the new school term.

I am thankful for... Some easy days before we start up school again.

From the learning rooms... Organizing the new books and notebooks and getting ready to get things rolling next week.

From the kitchen... Baking bread! Smells so good!

I am wearing... denim cullottes, and laramie red t-shirt.

I am creating... a new look for my blog.

I am going... to take Benjamin to the orthodontist's on Wednesday.

I am reading... "Master Your Metabolism" by Julian Michaels, and "Under the Lilac" ( by Louisa May Alcott.

I am hoping... to finish my minimalist cardigan by this weekend.

I am hearing... the happy hum of the AC.

Around the house... Laundry, menu planning, shopping list making, general picking up, and pool time!

One of my favorite things... Watching the littles play and explore.

A few plans for the rest of the week: visit with a friend this afternoon; organizing for school, some sewing, some knitting, and just enjoying the last of our summer vacation as much as possible.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

The new quilt is BEAUTIFUL! Those are some of my favorite colors! :)

Our computer was down for a bit, but we are up and running again. Miss you my friend.

So good to "see" you again! I've been wondering how you are all doing. The quilt in the header is actually one I made last summer for my niece's wedding. Thought it would go better with the new blog decor than the other one I had up there. Blessings and hugs to all of you! Miss you guys!

Besides, you had to take that "other" quilt out of the header so you could finish quilting it!! ;-P
