The Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY Tuesday June 1st

Outside my window… the sun has just gone down… those perfect few moments of dusk that I love.

I am thinking… how exciting it is to have the major part of our remodeling finished! (Now it’s my turn, reorganizing kitchen cabinet contents and PAINTING, oh, so much painting!)

I am thankful for… my husband and his many, many skills and talents! It was so neat to see him change our kitchen and front room COMPLETELY around and do it all by himself.

From the kitchen… we had a roast in the crockpot for dinner (with carrots… THE BEST kind of carrots are cooked with my roast recipe!) and no-bake cheesecake leftover from yesterday = always a win!

I am wearing… maybe the clothes I wore yesterday, maybe not?

I am creating… hmm, I don’t feel very creative today.

I am going… go to bed early. A combination of either my granny being over or my husband at home for over a week now… tomorrow’s gonna be a change and I need my rest!

I am reading… The Sunny Side for my book club

I am hoping… both kids sleep in again tomorrow!

I am hearing… not much. Faint hum of the fridge, maybe, and the tap of dh’s finger on the ipad. It’s a quiet house when children sleep.

Around the house… things look much different than they did last week! I keep saying I have a vacation house -weird, I know, but I feel like our new room shouldn’t be in my house, it’s too nice! Going to my kitchen is like a vacation…without the sandy beaches outside… hmm, wonder how long I’ll feel like this! 😛

One of my favorite things… sitting by our front window, on the couch reading in the morning before everyone else wakes up.

A few plans for the rest of the week: our schedule is pretty empty. Just the way I like it. Plenty of room for something spontaneous! But I’ll probably be trying to paint in all my free time. I’m really not that spontaneous, after all.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing…

Miss L has been cruising (quite fast) everywhere on her belly for months now… today she crawled! We only saw her do it twice. This is the second time when I had the camera ready to go! (I love her little half smile expression!)

    I have to remember to check your everyday photo now that the camera is back. I've missed so much!!

    So happy about the redo! Your dh does wonderful work. :)
