The Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY May 25th

Outside my window… it’s very sunny and warm. As I read this afternoon a little bird sat on the sill looking in at me for quite awhile! NEVER seen a bird sit there before!

I am thinking… about how today is pseudo-Friday b/c my husband is off the rest of the week! We are doing some remodeling! (we’ll he is doing some remodeling, I’ll be photographing it!)

I am thankful for… my life as a stay at home mom… I don’t mind one.single.bit being here all day, every day with my kids!

From the kitchen… Today for lunch I made black bean humus! (thanks to my vitamix!) that we put on pita bread with feta cheese, tomato and black olives. (MAJOR YUM!!) easy. fast. delicious!

I am wearing… black workout shorts and black tank top (I think I need more color in my wardrobe) And my favorite shoes, my Birkenstock. (even though they don’t “go” at. all. with this outfit) I didn’t know if I’d like my birks or if they were “me” but now I put them on as soon as I wake up and don’t take them off until I get back in bed!

I am creating… the floor plan and wall decorations for our new front room in my head. There is going to be a big wall space to fill… I think it calls for a HUGE (serious huge ppl!) painting, what do you think?!! (yes I know I owe about 5 ppl paintings first… I’m still creating this one in my head, remember? :-) )

I am going… to help my husband clean out all the furniture and etc in our front room tonight to get ready to take the floor up and the wall down!!! (HOORAY for a more usable and bigger kitchen & living space!)

I am reading… the last part of Eat Pray Love. I started it on vacation at the beginning of April and for some reason read about 4 other books before getting back to it. BUT I’ve heard the movie is coming out soon and I hope to go see it with a friend and need to finish reading it first!

I am hoping… my youngest sister does awesome at the Regional track meet tonight!!! I smell a State qualifying pole vault!!! (I’m wishing… I could be there in person to cheer her on!)

I am hearing… Mr A tell me all about where and how his semi truck is driving all over the family room. (up and down couch cushion hills, how he’s riding on it, how it keeps needing gas and to get fixed b/c it’s crashing) I also hear the AC.

Around the house… things are pretty peaceful and clean!

One of my favorite things… is seeing and hearing Miss L laugh when I tickle her!

A few plans for the rest of the week: maybe a morning at the library for DH to have some time to work without a house full of “help.” And helping my mom get ready for my youngest sisters HS graduation party.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing…

My sister is home for a few days and staying with us!!! She’s off to see the Reds tonight so we got Miss L all dressed up too!
