Simple Woman's Daybook

For today...Monday, September 29, 2008

Outside my window...the sun is shining! After 3 days of downpours, it is a welcome sight!

I am thinking...I don't know if I did this "right" but am impressed that I finally managed to do it in some fashion!

I am thankful for...Tucker and Michael who are supporting me through this time of unemployment and financial issues. Also for my son's laugh.

From the kitchen...Monday nights are not usually too industrious because Michael works. Tucker and I usually have scrambled eggs and toast or have an extra pizza night. For breakfast, Michael made pancakes (he really is better at breakfast than I am). Yesterday I made a roast in the crock pot...Yum! Also tried a new recipe for fettuccine alfredo that was also yummy if I do say so myself!

I am creating...handmade Christmas presents

I am wearing...capri jeans and a Newport t-shirt

I am reading...I just finished Anne of Avonlea (I have decided to re-read the Green Gables series; I think I first read it when I was 11 or 12 but can appreciate it so much more now). Will be going to the library tomorrow for the next one. With Tucker, we read an assortment of books, right now, along the fall/Halloween theme. I think I may start Magic Tree House Knights of the Dawn tonight. (We've been listening to Ghost Town at Sundown and Dolphins after Dark on CD in the car; from Wendy's Kid's meals)

I am find my debit card so I don't have to report it missing AGAIN. I last had it yesterday when I go groceries and realized I didn't have it when I tried to get my prescriptions at Walmart this morning. Called the grocery store and no one had turned it in. I may have to go to the bank and withdraw some cash (you know, pay for something the old-fashioned way!)

I am hearing...Barbara Walters talking about Paul Newman on The View. Also the gurgling from the fish tanks.

Around the house...Tucker and I cleaned, cleaned, cleaned on Saturday and I hope it stays this neat! Down here in the family room, Tucker has half the room set up as a battlefield.

One of my favorite things...sliced Monterrey jack cheese, pepperoni with Club crackers (my latest favorite snack).

A few plans for the rest of the week...hopefully some fall crafts after school with Tucker. Tomorrow we have a make-up soccer game from the one rained out Saturday. A home visit tomorrow. Another game on Saturday. Sunday we'll celebrate my mother-in-law and niece's birthday here at our house.

A picture thought...

I found this picture of our niece Cassandra when I was going through some pictures. It was taken in August of 1993, so she's almost 4. she's in the back of my car and we're going to Mystic Aquarium. She'll be 19 on October 10th so it was fun to find this picture!

Yeah! I'm so glad you did this. Jake is just getting into the Magic Tree house books also, he is currently listening to Dolphins at daybreak. (Jonathan STILL likes them and just got the latest Eve of the Emperor Penguin last week at the library). I have also had on my mental books list to read the Anne of Green Gables books (we listened to Green Gables on CD about two years ago), but I've never read any of the others. I have to say it is so neat to keep informed with what you guys are up to day to day and I think it is so interesting that we still do so many similar things "all these years later".

I knew when I wrote the title I had it wrong (the dolphin one) but didn't feel like going to find out what it actually was! We actually got three of the Magic Tree House books for 50 cents/each at the library used book sale. It is pretty neat that we do a lot of the same things! Which probably isn't really so surprising, I guess! I'm actually enjoying doing this blog (not that I thought I wouldn't; that came out the wrong way!)
