The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today



Looking Out My Window
It was hot today.  I think the weatherman said it's been in the 90s for the past 60 days.  Is it Oct yet??

I am thinking
about planning a road trip.  It's been a LONG time since we went on one and wanderlust is kicking into gear.  I've added a travel column to the budget.

I am thankful
that my kids still like to hang out with me.  We went to the mall last night to return some stuff and get #1 Son some pants.  AND we went geocaching!  I havent logged a cache since the end of February.




We had such a good time! I really want to remember days like this because I know they wont last forever.

I am wearing
a REALLY old sleep shirt

I am creating
garbage.  No really.  I'm slowly going thru piles in the apt and am amazed at what I still have

check out the year!


I thought twice abt getting rid of these magazines because I still want to read them.  However when I realized that I packed and moved them TWICE, it was time for them to go.  They are actually sitting on the counter with my library books.  Our library has a section for free magazines and they will hang out there until they find their forever home.  Apparently I was just fostering them....

I am Reading/Watching
I'm thinking of getting a book that I read when I was a kid again.  I did enjoy Nancy Drew.  I'm thinking Are You There God, It's Me Margaret or My Darling My Hamburger.  Thursday is our Literary Society meeting and I'm really looking forward to it.  I'm still watching Hogan's Heroes at night and I've been sucked into some Hallmark Channel shows.  The mysteries are my favorites!

I am Hoping
to knit a bit more often.  I havent touched my sock since last Tues.

I am Hearing
#1 Son is watching old episodes of How I Met Your Mother on Netflix and the downstairs neighbor is singing.  I dont know what she sings but it's always the same song.  ALWAYS.  She's not bad, but it never changes.  I will be putting my tv back on soon.

In My Kitchen
I actually made dinner tonight!  Grandma's Chicken to be exact!

Sounds like things are settling into a routine! Can't believe BOTH of your kiddos are in high school! Ahhhhhhhhhhh...I remember the days. Meghan is STILL good at putting on make up.

Love the pics of your kids - they are so grown up it seems crazy!

The margarita saying nearly did me in.

Anytime a kitty pic is included, I'm a happy camper. :-)

Yes, treasure those moments, all too soon they will be gone. We've had a cooler week here in Missouri. Makes me think of Oct. I love that month. I too used to keep magazine thinking I would read them.. {sigh} but I never did. I am trying to make more time for knitting. Your "quote" cracked me up! Thanks for the laugh. Great pictures of your kiddos!

Thanks for the Hemi pic Lynn. You and the kids look great. It's been hot here too.

Maybe it's the pending arrival of autumn that boosts our collective de-cluttering impulses. But I just took a pile of old unread magazines on a weekend trip to leaf through them before tossing. Felt good to lighten the load, so to speak.


Visiting from SWD. Mine's up at Practically at Home.
