The Simple Woman's Daybook- May 4,2009

Stop in and visit Peggy over at Simple Woman's Daybook.

For Today... May 4,2009

Outside my window...sunny and heading for a beautiful day!

I am thinking... how wonderful it is that Spring is here:)

I am thankful for... a great time we had with Tim and Brooke Sunday - eating lunch on the deck and enjoying the beautiful weather!

From the kitchen... the great feeling waking up to counters all clear and sink empty, except for a couple of glasses. It was worth it to run that second load of dishes last night.

I am wearing... jammies and robe- Actually what I want to wear today is in the dryer:)

I am hoping... that the rain coming on Wednesday will not be heavy- the ground is saturated already and some communities fear flooding.

I am hearing...those sweet birds chirping, a neighbor down the street mowing.

I am praying... for the dedication service for our grandson Sam this weekend. Looking forward to a very special day.

Around the house... I'll be washing several blankets and sheet sets along with regular laundry.

One of my favorite things...a newly mowed lawn (thank you Amanda!)

A few plans for the rest of the week... some organizing projects around the house- And attacking those cobwebs in my laundry room- I rarely see the spiders- just the cobwebs- yuck. Any one have any formulas for getting rid of spiders and grand-daddy-long-legs?

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...*

Wishing our son (and new daddy:) Ben Happy 27th Birthday tomorrow!
You are so far away from us, but we send you our love and hope you have a great party with Lisa and your friends and enjoy your traditional Mexican food celebration!
We love you!

What a lovely day :)

I especially like the one about having the counters clean and the sink is so good to wake-up to a clean kitchen!

Happy Birthday to Ben! Thanks for sharing the sweet picture.

I noticed the bugs have started coming out too. For ants, I use a product called Thieves Spray to keep them away. For flies and spiders, I use my trusty swatter. I wonder if the spray would keep those away too. I may have to try it. :)

Hi Linda!! Love your picture thought!! Two cuties there!!

My oldest daughter who lives 3 minutes away came here to use the computer to try and find a new home??!! And move away from Mom and Emily's Nana?? They tried this before and it didn't work, so I'm going to prayer this doesn't either!! Actually, I'll pray and ask for God's will...which is far better than Becky's!!

Love and hugs and sunshine to you, sweetie,

You have beautiful grandchildren. Isn't it fun! I enjoy my 9, but only 4 are close. My last one, a boy, born March 28 is just as special as the rest. Enjoy them all!
