Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY August 4, 2008…

Outside My Window… I saw a female indigo bunting in the birdbath. I am on the lookout for the male. What a spectacular shade of blue!

I am thinking… about what a busy week this will be.

I am thankful for… my birthday boy, who will be having his 10th birthday party this weekend. He is an official member of the Double Digit Club and thrilled! He brings his own special brand of joy into my daily life!

From the kitchen… bacon, bacon, bacon

I am wearing… still schlepping around in my summer robe….pink seersucker with butterflies and purple gingham ribbon. It is well worn & comforting.

I am creating… a menu & plan for Bear’s birthday party. So far, we have grilled hot dogs, BBQ potato chips, macaroni salad, baked beans, and a homemade birthday cake.

I am going… to burn a lot of gasoline this week.

I am reading… the Rainbow Resource Catalog, and a few online homeschool forums for schoolbooks. Looking thru the Land’s End uniform catalog, too.

I am hoping… for rain…any day but Saturday.

I am hearing… I have my blog opened in another tab as well, so that I can listen to Pachelbel’s Canon. Love tabbed browsing.

Around the house… I must tackle the laundry room. It is the room people see first when they come in through the garage – the easiest access from the driveway. Generally, I don’t mind folks entering thru the garage, as I’m not the formal sort, but I want it clean & tidy.

One of my favorite things… watching the birds in my birdbath & at the feeders.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
Clean, straighten, fluff, and buff…then I’ll start on the house. haha
Grocery shopping
Bake a cake
Keep the pool clean and sparkly. Weed wack around the fence.
Attend to the details for next week’s Ladies Fellowship.

Here is picture thought I am sharing

I KNOW some of you will recognize this place…..

    Sheri, indigo bunting are so BLUE!!!! We do not get many on this end of the state. Last year I saw some, but so far this year, none.

    Your pink toenails look wonderful!!
    What place, I don’t see a place, just a pink toenail. 😉
    Just kidding, I do see a place.

    Happy 10th Birthday to your boy!! =D

    I haven’t seen many indigo buntings around here either. I think we had two last year.

    ooo, I would love to see Indigo Buntings. Love the pink toe nails, but they really should be red. 😀

    Nice post. 🙂

    Thanks! 🙂 I wanted to make the little yarn ball red, but I could only do one color. ??? Oh well.

    OK, my 19″ monitor must not be big enough or I just don’t know what site you could be talking about. I don’t recognize it.

    It’s Ravelry, sweetheart….you haven’t been there enough! 😉

    I love the toes. You’re just too cute in your pink toes, Mom! I see you used Photoshop on that piture to highlight the pink right?

    No, actually I used picnik, the free photoeditor on flickr. It is very easy and the free options are abundant enough for me. (for now anyway 😉 )

    Ok, the color is everlasting pink…but what is the brand? Revlon? I know we both have used plenty of Revlon polish in our days.

    Sally Hansen
