The Simple Woman's Daybook

Peggy over at The Simple Woman's Daybook is the gracious host here.

For Today... September 21, 2009

Outside my window... Another beautiful day! We got a much needed rain last night.

I am thinking... all the cleaning and laundry that needs done.

I am thankful for...all of our blessings- we have so many. Our family, home, church, and this great country we live in- even with all that's going on- it's the best on earth!:) Also for our DIL Lisa's new job at their church that gives her more time at home with Sophia, and that she loves the job- thank you Lord!

From the kitchen... need to clip coupons, plan menus and grocery shop. (I didn't change that sentence from last week:) Looking forward to making applesauce, pies, etc. from the apples on our tree.

I am wearing... Hey! It's 2:30 so I'm dressed:) Green capris and green shirt.

I am hoping... for good weather, so that we can paint our deck railings.

I am hearing... Amanda playing the guitar.

I am praying... for our son Ben who has the flu (H1N1? probably). Also that our DIL Lisa and 6 mo granddaughter Sophia don't get it - or if they do that it is mild for them. That Lisa can get rest and keep her strength with all these responsibilities.

Around the house... getting my fall decorations ready-- I am slowly admitting that it is fall- hate to leave summer behind- it was too short.

One of my favorite things...looking through old photographs - oh the memories and good times:)

A few plans for the rest of the week...going to a new women's Bible study at church- Then more or less the usual chores, cooking, maybe some baking at home.

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

Reactions by Tim, Brooke and Pastor Joe when an ice cream truck went down the street playing it's joyful music during their wedding! Tim did a little fake slow run like he was going to chase it.:) It was a great, fun moment enjoyed by all...

Dear Linda, I love your list. Makeing stuff with your apples sounded so good. I have finally put my fall decorations up. It took me a while too as I was dragging my feet. I will really miss summer this year as Mary loves to go outside and play. We will have to find indoor venues for her. Many lovely events comeing in the fall so I look forward to that. Love the story of the ice cream truck. It made me laugh too! Have a wonderful day! Hugs, Elena

Hi Sweet Linda!! You have just made my day and it's 10:30 p.m. here!! I was going to email you and say "Hey Linda, where is your daybook entry for today?" I was really missing it!

As for missing summer...COME ON DOWN!! We still have all the summer you could ask for, and I promise to show you a great time!!
Of course once you step foot in my house it's fall inside, but outside, balmy breezes and swaying palm trees!! The best of both seasons!!

You're a delight my friend, and I would love to come cook up some apple yummies with you!!

Hope your week is wonderful and full of blessings! Love that picture thought, too!!

Love ya,
