Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY, June 10, 2008

Outside My Window... lots of lush green plants that thrive in the desert. I don't understand people who insist the Arizona desert is brown and ugly -- if you look carefully, there's an abundance of color!

I am thinking... I need to throw in at least 2 loads of laundry this morning

I am thankful for... compassionate, dedicated medical personnel

From the kitchen... a big bowl of Kashi cereal topped with fresh blueberries

I am wearing... a blue cotton nightgown with pink embroidered flowers

I am creating... a crocheted dishcloth. I haven't crocheted in YEARS, but I'm trying to learn again.

I am going... to the hospital in a few hours to be with my father before he heads into surgery.

I am reading... Talking with My Mouth Full, a wonderful collection of essays about food (including recipes!) from NPR.

I am hoping... that there are no complications with my dad's surgery

I am hearing... many birds chirping and nothing else as the baby is sleeping and the boys are off at Zoo Camp.

Around the house... clutter. Too Much Clutter.

One of my favorite things... my sweet baby's nose

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: caring for my dad, helping N sew a stuffed elephant, taking care of some overdue paperwork, welcoming my mom, brother & SIL at the end of the week.

Here is picture thought I am sharing... my flirty, precious, music-loving baby girl

  1. I remember visiting Arizona and seeing the greens---different from elsewhere but still green! And yes, seeing the reds and other colors too.

  2. Just popping in from Peggy's. Hope things went well with your father's surgery!!!
