Simple Woman's Daybook - Sept 1st

For today, September 1st, 2008

Outside My Window... bright and sunny, 84 degrees - lovely! But I'm looking at the disaster my dogs made of the garden plot we are planning for next summer.

I am thinking ... about my son and Mother-in-Law getting home from Sweden today!

I am thankful for... my friends who had my middle son over for a playdate yesterday. He's missing his brother and needed some "friend" time to get his mind off it!

From the kitchen ... Nothing special today - but for dinner we are planning Bok Choy Stir-Fry and Chinese Dumplings.

I am wearing ... Tan pants, peach top - this is a super comfy outfit. The pants are a "swishy", lightweight cotton. Oh, and frizzy hair.

I am creating ... a landscape plan to improve our yard. We'll have to do it in stages, since we can't afford to do everything we want to right now.

I am going ... to the airport to pick my my MIL and son TONIGHT!

I am reading ... my Mom just gave me a new book (I finished Gilead, finally! It was so good, I'll post a review later this week.) - "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" by Lisa See.

I am hoping ... the first day of Classical Conversations goes really well on Wednesday.

I am hearing ... my dryer humming along, thanks to my Mom.

Around the house... trying to get everything cleaned up and straightened for the "homecoming". Oh, we finished painting the kids' bathroom today!

One of my favorite things... my new LARGE format (Monarch) planner pages!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
  • Classical Conversations - first day for Foundations kids on Wednesday.

  • Having friends over for pizza Friday or Saturday.

  • Doing all the laundry my son will be bringing home.

  • Getting ready for my Dad's visit early next week.
Here is picture thought I am sharing:
