The Simple Woman's Daybook ~ June 4th


~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

FOR TODAY...
Outside My Window... it is green and lush. I'm watching the leaves gently sway in the trees, and enjoying the flowers I've planted in the front. It is a warm spring day, but not too hot. There is a soft breeze blowing, and the birds are chirping and enjoying the feeders.

I am thinking...about having our snack outside this afternoon ~and about what activities I can do with the children when they wake up from their naps. Hummm...maybe we'll bring our Sesame Street CD outside to play, while I let them help me shuck corn for supper.

I am thankful for...our playgroup and that my house is ready to host our play date tomorrow...and for a quiet peaceful day. The weather is beautiful. It has rained so much lately. But, it's a gorgeous day, today.

From the kitchen...is the smell of Amish Friendship Bread. I just finished creating a starter for two friends and I'm baking a loaf. I can't wait to enjoy a piece of sugary, cinnamon goodness.

I am wearing...denim with sandals today.

I am creating...Popsicle "frog" puppets. Tomorrow, we are going to use them to sing "Five Little Speckled Frogs." I want everyone to be able to take a set home, after playgroup.

I am going...to go to the store this week to buy decorations for baby girl's 1st birthday celebration.

I am reading...through a few new blogs this week.

I am hoping...the weather will stay nice, with no rain in sight, for the celebration. We want to have it outside.

I am hearing...the trickle of water in our aquarium, and the birds eating and playing outside.

Around the house...the children are quietly napping, the dishes and laundry are drying and bread is baking.

One of my favorite things...are the new pictures I just got developed of the children. They are too precious, and they're growing so fast.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: The ladies and I are going to plan out the rest of the month's activities for our playgroup. I need to finish my costume for the Wacky fashion show on Monday, for the Warren's Women Connection.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... ~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~***~*~
I cherish the little things in my daily life that are simple, but elegant.

Peggy at The Simple woman created this day book meme for her readers to enjoy an inside view of her thoughts and daily life at home. I found her through Dawn at By Sun and Candlelight. In keeping with striving to simplify my life and yet create a warm, inviting and peaceful atmosphere within my home, I thought this would be a great way to journal a snippet of my daily thoughts, feelings and ideas.~Blessings.

All of that just makes me smile. I just love the simple stuff. :)
I actually just bought some fresh corn today and was wondering if I should let the girls help me shuck it. I'm definitely thinking we will have to go outside and try it. I remember loving to snap beans with my grandmother!

Thanks for the idea today of the dishpans! What a fun and still inexpensive way to have some messy fun! I'm so glad you stopped by!

Have a great weekend!
Love,
K

I just love the days when I feel like we live in "order." Your day sounds very ordered. There is just something about it that allows your spirit to find joy and your soul to rest easier.
I just got rid of all my Amish Friendship Bread. I loved it, but after awhile it seemed like all I did was bake bread and guess who ate it all...ME! But reading about it made me desire a nice piece straight from the oven. I would love to see pictures of your frogs!
Thanks for the prayers last week. I truly clung to your prayer :) Thanks friend!
