Simple Woman's Daybook

I found this lovely idea on Miss Jocelyn's blog, A Pondering Heart.
For Today, August 22, 2008:
Outside My Window... It's rather cloudy outside, and I can see the wind rustling the leaves of the oak trees. Our log home is surrounded with 13 acres of woods, so we have plenty of trees! Maybe I'll post a picture later...
I Am Thinking... About sorting through my drawers for things to sell at the yard sale tomorrow...we're gathering everything up into a big pile and WOW there's more stuff than I thought there was! :)
I Am Thankful For... My parents. I love them so much! And the fact that tomorrow after the yard sale we're going to a kick-off-the-school-year party hosted by the local homeschool group...we'll be swimming in a huge pool with a water slide...
From The Kitchen... We are about to pause our stuff-collecting and get some breakfast...maybe a piece of Mama's homemade banana bread...
I Am Reading... The Mitford Series by Jan Karon...well, I actually finished them yesterday, so now I'm in limbo until I find the next book...
I Am Hoping... To sell a lot of my handmade jewelry at the yard sale so as to earn some spending money for our vacation to North Carolina coming up during the last week of September!
I Am Hearing... Birdsong, and the occasional crow from our rooster, Rocky.
I Am Wearing... A lavender Curves (curves as in the Gym) t-shirt with flowers down one side, and jeans.
Around The House... Orderly Chaos! There's a gargantuan pile of stuff sitting in the living room by the front door that we hope to be rid of tomorrow morning, and Mama is calling to let us know we need to feed the chickens...Okay, now I'm back.
One Of My Favorite Things... Strawberry cheesecake ice cream! (Sara Lee, of course)
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Today, clean my room and gather yard sale stuff. Tomorrow, run yard sale at a friend's house and then go to kick-off party!
I Accomplished Since Last Week... Made at least 150 pairs of earrings, re-organized my whole walk-in closet, and baked a batch of white chocolate chip cookies. :)
Here Is A Picture Thought I Am Sharing With You...
I found this little squirrel taking a nap right outside our upstairs window, lying on a branch, looking oh-so-relaxed! It was so cute! In this picture he raised his head up slightly, the picture I took before that with him sleeping came out blurry.
Have a blessed day!!
