The Simple Woman's Daybook...

I am participating in Peggy's Simple Woman's Daybook today!

For Today May 12, 2008

Outside my window....
The sun is trying to creep out of the overcast skies.. I take a breath of fresh cold air coming through the crack of my window while taking in the sites of my large pine trees and my favorite weeping tree.

I am thinking...
Oh how I wish it would stop being so dark and cold, why we aren't getting a proper Spring and where oh where is that sun ???

I am thankful for...
The good Lord allowing me to stay home with my children.

From the Kitchen...
Spaghetti & Meatballs, Texas garlic toast, Romaine salad

am wearing....
Black capri pants, a dark blue fuzzy Old Navy zip up pull over with a black tee underneath with sock monkey slippers.

I am creating...
A large Cherry girl doll for a customer

I am going...
to do some laundry when I am done with this post.

I am reading...
The Little Book Of Christian Character & Manners by William & Colleen Dedrick

I am hoping...
To finish the book " Dream A Little Art" I am writing by June.

I am hearing..
My son talking on the phone to his friend while playing the piano at the same time.. go figure !!

Around the house..
My craft supplies in the living room, home school books on the kitchen table, dog fur on my carpet.

One of my favorite things...
fresh bakery maple donuts

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday: Clean piles and finish laundry
Tuesday: Take Vince to his Java class.. nothing to do with coffee.
Wednesday:Survive housework
Thursday:possible lunch with a friend from my art group
Friday: Family Night
Saturday: See if Crystal wants to go to the vintage shoppe

Sunday: Church ( The Lords Day )

Here is a picture that I am sharing:
