Simple Woman's Daybook
Looking out my window
We have been having heavy rain showers every afternoon. Nothing like Louisiana, but drenching nonetheless.
I am thinking
that I like the older version of the Daybook better than the revised one. I made some changes in the post back to one I used back in 2015.
I am thankful
That I have a job. That I have a working car. That my kids are healthy. My job can be boring (on a daily basis), but it allows me the flexibility to take time off for family. I drive a car as old as #1 Son and we have to share it, but it works. My kids can make me crazy, but they are turning into productive humans. Life may not be where I imagined it would be at almost 50, but it's SOO much better than it could be
I am wearing
A Mickey Mouse night shirt. It's long, down to my knees, and I've been know to drive Baby Girl to school while wearing it.
I am reading (read) /watching (watched) / listening to
The last book I read was Dave Ramsey's The Total Money Makeover. It will most likely be the book I discuss at our first book club meeting next week. Or Nancy Drew. Or The Idiot's Guide to Knitting Sweaters. While others will be discussing high brow books, I will be discussing knitting and drinking wine. Sounds like a great night to me!!
I also continue to watch reruns of Hogan's Heroes before I go to sleep. It's from the late 60s but it still holds up.
I am hoping
that life doesnt throw me any more surprises. I need some consistency right now.
I am hearing
#1 Son on the phone with a friend. Hemi chirping at me to feed him. The hum of the computer.
In my kitchen
right now I have a ton of dishes to do and a box of half eaten pizza from dinner.
In the school room
I already posted a pic of Baby Girl heading off to high school, but I didnt post this one of #1 Son.
He is finishing off his senior year at a technical school and will most likely be done in abt a month. He took a placement test and got a perfect score. His counselor said she never saw anybody get a perfect score. That's my boy!
In my garden
I have none. I *could* plant some things in the front area of my apt, but I've tried twice, killing both things, one of them being a sunflower. However I do have a basil plant growing at work! It occasionally will get a haircut for a caprese salad at home.
