The Simple Woman's Daybook - Entry for July 2, 2011


Outside my window...there are clouds again. Am worried for the hay farmers that have hay cut and have it drying out in the fields at the moment.

I am thinking...that these few moments of solitude without anyone around are wonderful.

I am thankful...for our home and the property we have around us. It allows us to experience so many different things.

From the learning rooms...we will be starting some intervention phonics for H-Bob. Looks like there could be some dyslexia lurking.

In the kitchen...I plan on putting a beef brisket on the Traeger gill for Fourth of July. Can hardly wait.

I am wearing...my oh so predictable comfy clothes that I religiously change into the minute I enter the house from being somewhere.

I am creating...well, if you call making jam and tending a garden creating, then that would be it. Would love to really craft though.

I am going...to help out at our 4H goat club's concession stand fundraiser with Goat Princess today.

I am wondering...if we should put up our pool this year. With only a couple of days of 80 degrees and clouds moving in every other day, it just doesn't seem worth it.

I am reading...Overcoming Dyslexia and learning that it is not what I had perceived it to be.

I am hoping...to spend Fourth of July in the garden getting some neglected stuff done before the jungle of weeds takes over. Ongoing battle for sure.

I am looking forward to...another week of church camp activities.

I am hearing...nothing but the birds outside. Beautiful silence.

Around the house...I can see that I've neglected to vacuum again. It sure doesn't take long around here to draw that to my attention.

I am pondering...how H-Bob will do out on the boat all day sturgeon fishing with hubby on the Fourth. That's a long time for her to be staying put, but she's more than excited over the prospect of perhaps catching her own sturgeon. Big Guy and a friend of his will be going along as well. They should all have fun!

One of my favorite things...is watching my to-do list shrink. Lame, I know.

A few plans for the rest of the week...include bringing a goat doe and her two kids plus one of our banty hens for the preschool aged kids at Sunday School to illustrate days 5 and 6 of creation. There are plans for goldfish and some crawdads from our creek to be there as well.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...well, not so much for thought. Just H-Bob and her little turtle she has added to her 'pet shop' collection.



Enjoy your week!
