right now...

Thankful for "cool" Summer days, lots of rain, heavy cloud cover, barn progress, discussions about a fast approaching Fall season, friend time (for me and children), long distant phone calls with ladies I treasure, and boy reading in hammock. Life is Good!

Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today... July16, 2011

Outside my window...skies are grey, we have been having rain everyday and all things green are flourishing. The pond has risen and water is visible when I stand at the back door, yeah.

I am thinking...about boys that have been at Worldview Camp all week. They are on their way home, tired and sick. We are praying that sick part is only due to food and lack of sleep.

I am thankful for... a quick minute to check in to this little spot.

I am wearing... thin cool pants and a sleevless t-shit with flip everyday Summer attire.

I am remembering...homeschooling is a marathon, not a sprint.

I am going...
to get the garden pulled up, the boxes moved and a few seeds put in some time this week, I hope.

I am currently reading... A Thousand Tomorrows, Karen Kingsbury.

I am hoping
...that there will be anyone left to read what I post here. I am hoping that I can squeak out just a few minutes to post here more frequently. I promised myself when I started blogging that it could not be at the expense of time for my family and so ~ that sums up where I've been since March.

On my mind
... Summer reads for high school and college students, plans and schedules for the coming school year.

Noticing that... my house seems a little quieter than normal. I am not sure why I am noticing this, and it seems most obvious when everyone is in the room, but we are all reading, writing and studying.

Pondering these words...Psalm 27.

From the kitchen
...Apple Oatmeal Crunch made by Rebekah. She does this all by herself start to finish and I just eat, oh my.

Around the house...we have been doing some maintance, new pump, resurfaced back porch, sun-sail over our bedroom window, landscaping pulled up on the front of the house with no plan ~ I hope this comes together soon.

One of my favorite things ~ hiking in the mountains.
