Simple Woman's Daybook

This is a meme from the Simple Woman's Daybook. Barb does it often and I thought I'd give it a try.

FOR TODAY...

Outside my window... a beautiful fall day. The sun is shining and the temps are mild. I’m hoping to get off this computer and out for a walk soon.

I am thinking... that there’s not much time before Meredith’s birthday. I can’t believe my baby is going to be 12.

I am thankful for... the love of my family and the laughter of good friends.

I am wearing... yoga pants, tank top and a black hoodie.

I am remembering... how nice it was to see my mom yesterday even though it was only for a few hours.

I am going... to get off this computer soon!! Really.

I am reading... Handle with Care by Jodi Piccoult. It’s a very thought provoking novel – all hers are.

I am hoping... that I can get a lot of Christmas shopping done this week. I’d like to have it out of the way.

On my mind... the one week scrapbooking retreat in September I’ve just committed to. I’m so excited.

From the scrapbooking room... I’m about 4 weeks behind on my Project 365 pages. I’m hoping to get them done today (they’re digital – so much for the plan to get off the computer!!)

Noticing that... I’m in a much better mood when I’m not rushing around trying to do everything all at once.

From the kitchen... It’s an easy supper night tonight. Dave plays squash early. We’ll be having salad and the kids’ favourite – chicken fingers and fries.

Around the house... I’m trying to figure out where I can put vinyl decals from sixty/forty. Hmmm . . .

One of my favorite things… walking down by the lake on a beautiful day.

A picture I'd like to share...

This is where I’ll be headed in September. Wow.

there's no backing out now! I'm so excited that you're coming. I hope Dave realizes that it's a yearly thing now!
