Simple Woman's Daybook - May 16th

Outside my window... The sun is shining, the sky is blue, the air is clear... but it's still COLD (34 degrees at 7:00 a.m.)!!!

I am thinking... it's time to make our summer plans (vacation dates, kids' activities, day trip ideas). Contrary to what the weather says, summer's coming!

I am thankful for... the fact that school's almost out and we'll have more time together as a family.

I am wearing... jeans, long sleeve tee, and a sweater!

I am going... to Joann Fabric today - hope I don't spend too much on all that temptation!

I am creating... a plan to re-do the girls' room this summer (it's still in its "Baby" stage, and my big girls want some changes!).

I am currently reading... Romans.

I am hoping... to start the Navigator Scripture memory program in the next week.

I am hearing... silence. The calm before the Monday morning storm...

In the kitchen... zucchini in the fridge to make bread this week. Love to keep it in the freezer! Also, lots of strawberry freezer jam is made!

Around the house... hauling more stuff out to give to friends and donate to a church rummage sale. Creating more room to move and breathe around here!

One of my favorite things... the kids being able to go outside and play after dinner.

A few plans for the rest of the week... knit night with friends tonight, 5th grade choral presentation this week, middle school open house, Hannah's having a couple of girlfriends over on Friday night for junk food and Wii.

Here is a picture I'd like to share with you...
