The Simple Woman Daybook - August 25th

Hi everyone, come on in and see what's in my daybook!

If you want to join in, just got visit Peggy over at The Simple Woman, read the guidelines here and then add your name to Mr Linky. There are so many other participants sharing their day, I'm sure you'll enjoy looking through them :)


Outside my Window
...there are two hummingbirds enjoying the Honeysuckle, they're so close to my window that if I had to reach out I could touch them.

I am thinking...that I need to bake some bread today

I am thankful for...the rain we got last night, we've been needing it and it felt wonderful hearing the pitter patter on the roof and knowing that the plants were getting the water they needed.

From the kitchen...for breakfast we're having Cinnamon Roll Toast and Steak with Pepper Sauce for dinner

I am wearing... camouflage capri's and a black tank top, black flip flops

I am reading...The Barefoot Princess by Christina Dodd.

I am hoping...That my appointment with the OB/GYN on thursday goes well.

I am hearing... The dishwasher buzzing in the background and the coffee pot percolating.

Around the house... Toys scattered in the living room, remnants from the weekend with everyone at home.

One of my favorite things...onions and garlic frying in olive oil

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Doctors appointment on thursday

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Yum, cinnamon roll toast sounds great! We're getting rain too, and it's wonderful. I love that the grass and flowers are being cared for by Mother Nature :)

Hope you have a great day Sandra, and a great week. Hope the dr appt on Thursday goes by fast and everything is good.

Take care!!!

Thanks for visiting my daybook and leaving a comment. It's always nice to know someone is reading. Hope your appt. goes well on Thursday. I had mine a couple of weeks ago. I think my blood pressure has finally come down :)

I am in a bread baking mood too.
Haven't started it yet. Will have to wait till Wed. now I guess. But I want to check out your cinnamon roll toast recipe. Sounds yummy.
I'll pray for the doctors visit.
I love the photo. Are those your linens?
I have not finished de-cluttering my blog yet but I want to add you to my blog roll. I just love your little part of the world!
Thanks for coming by.
oh btw I love the new look again. It is so pretty. I would love to have a cottage. I call my new house a cottage but without the beautiful gardens I don't think it really is. More smiles,Sherry.

I've been hanging out our sheets and blankets... I changed our sheets yesterday and the sheets had been dried outside... they smelled so fresh. That picture reminded me of that smell!

Thanks for stopping by, Sandra. Love the smell of line-dried sheets. Hope all goes well for you this week, esp the visit to your doctor.


PS. I'm a big fan of Fannie Flagg too. :)

Hi Sandra,
Thanks for stopping by! Tank was 14 lbs when we got him at 7 weeks, he is 5 months now and about 50 lbs!! My husband was in the Air Force in the early 1970's at Beale Air Force Base in California. Loved the pic of the sheets drying in the wind!
Have a blessed week!

Kristen said...

This is such a great idea... love that photo too!

Pennies In My Pocket said...

Rain ... praying that we get some. Looks like a few drops may be coming our way! We need it, too!

Pass the Cinnamon Roll Toast, please!!! ;-)

Oh and onions and garlic frying in a pan of olive oil is one of my faves, too!!

Hope your day is blessed!
