The Simple Woman's Daybook


For Today, Monday June 7th, 2009...

Outside my window... it looks more like late Fall instead of early Spring. I have to confess... I'm glad it's not 90 degrees like it was a few weeks ago. I don't do heat very well ;)

I am thinking... how good it is to feel "normal" and it's just in time for a very busy week ahead.

From the learning rooms... we are revving up for Week 32. We're almost done! This week it's the book of Esther and I can't wait until cookie time! After we study Esther, we bake these special little cookies called, "Hamantaschen," and read through an abbreviated version of the story. Ah, but this time... in keeping with Hebrew tradition... every time we come to Haman's name everybody boos, hisses and stomps their feet!
It's pretty hilarious.

I am thankful for... wow, where do I start... I'm thankful I can squeeze my toothpaste onto my toothbrush and other little things that I used to take for granted. I'm thankful for 14 years of marriage and that The Captain and I were able to celebrate last Friday with dinner And a movie. It was a big night for us 'old- feeling' folks.

I'm thankful for a wonderful 42nd birthday that we celebrated on Saturday (it was a big weekend!). And for the sweet time with my family and a few friends.
Good food, good music, good times.

From the kitchen... this week I think we'll do tacos, sweet and sour chicken, potato leek soup, a Chinese chicken salad and perhaps a roast on Friday.

I am wearing... black leggings, a black tank with a gray sweater thrown over.
I have yet to jump in the shower and get dressed for the day.

I am reading... a new book! For my birthday I received a book titled, "Magic Books and Paper Toys." It's a book of paper engineering and book design. SO COOL.
I can't keep my nose out of it.

I am hoping... to have enough energy and strength for this week as I chaperone the rehearsals and one of the performances that the girls have. They will be a part of Alice in Wonderland on Saturday! So excited-- I can't wait.

I am creating... many things in my head! I hope to actually get some ideas out.
I did just finish printing some invitations for a couple at church. It was a nice way to get my "feet wet" so to speak.

I am praying... for safe travel for The Captain's mom ( I call her Inang).
I can't wait to see her and I'm so glad she'll be able to make the performance Saturday!

Around the house... are many signs of a good and busy household. Laundry in process, cards and balloons still on display, violins everywhere (hee hee) and our bed which is still unmade.
Oh well, Monday at it's finest.

One of my favorite things... photography. The whole process captured my heart many, many years ago. I haven't been able to devote much time or heart to it in years. But, now, since I've been blessed with a new camera... well... we'll just have to see what we can "see" with it!

Thank you Andrea, Katie-kins, Meghan, Nana, Papa and Abby--- I love it!

A few plans for the rest of the week... school during the mornings then rehearsals on Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri and the show on Saturday!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
We rearranged some rooms and furniture recently and temporarily set our globe on this little electric fireplace that used to be in Brigitta's room. She walked in and saw the globe sitting there and without a blink said, "Hey look! Global warming!"

She's a funny girl...

Love the Global Warming!!!!! Oh man, that made me laugh!

Rob and I just celebrated our 14th anniversary too. June 3 1995. I didn't know our anniversary was so close to yours.

I haven't been good about blogging or keeping up with your blog lately, but I am going to get back into it again now that summer is coming upon us. I miss it! I hope the weekend goes well and the performance are amazing! Have fun.
