The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my window...there is a potato vine growing taller than me on the porch screen. Gardening and landscaping have been neglected since Meghan came along.
I am thinking...that I am really tired tonight.
I am thankful for...a husband that washes the dishes every night. I really hate washing dishes.
From the learning rooms...I am reading a paper on gene therapy for retinitis pigmentosa and Camille has been working on counting. She received Hi-Ho Cherry-O as a birthday gift and it has really helped her counting skills.
From the kitchen...strawberries are sitting in a colander in the sink.
I am wearing...a ponytail. Meghan likes grabbing my hair!
I am creating...a birthday card for a party on Sunday.
I am going...to a mini-retreat this weekend sponsored by A Woman's Answer, the Catholic crisis pregnancy center in town. I am looking forward to some quiet meditation time.
I am reading...the newest issue of Southern Living. I subscribed for free with some frequent flyer miles that were expiring. It is kind of a "quaint and cozy" magazine.
I am hoping...Meghan wakes to eat silently tonight. She loves to coo and blow raspberries in the middle of the night.
I am hearing...Meghan blow raspberries from her little rocking chair. It's 9:30PM and she decided sleeping from 7:30-9 was just a nap.
Around the house...there is still laundry to be folded. Ken usually helps me get it done, but this week has been hectic for both of us.
One of my favorite things...beating Ken at cribbage :-) I have won the last 3 nights in a row. (Not that I'm gloating.)
A few plans for the rest of the week: Young Married Couples event at church tomorrow, mini-retreat Saturday morning while Ken & Camille are at soccer, picking up the new piano Saturday afternoon, Mass on Sunday morning and a 2 yr old birthday party on Sunday afternoon. We have a full weekend planned!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...Meghan was helping me beat Ken at cribbage.
