Simple Woman's Daybook
For today, Saturday, August 1, 2009 (I know it's super early but we're leaving at 8 am tomorrow and I can't imagine not doing this for the week!)
Outside my window...it is dark
I am thinking...I need to get to bed
I am thankful for...the opportunity to go to New York!
From the kitchen...nothing this week
I am creating...fun memories for our family
I am wearing...jean shorts and a blue Old Navy shirt
I am reading...finished The Geometry of Sisters by Luanne Rice and just started The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe. Still listening to The Ivy Chronicles and will finish it when we get back. I picked up The Bridge to Teribethia to listen to in the car, as well as some Magic Treehouse audio books for Tucker to listen to on the train. We're still reading Next Stop, New York City! and we'll start The Cricket in Times Square when we're done with it! Tucker read the following this week: Taking Care of Tucker by Pat Lowery Collins, Clever Cat by Peter Collington, Seahorse by Chris Butterworth, and Next Stop, Grand Central!.
I am hoping...to have fun in NYC
I am hearing...the fan...the dryer...America's Most Wanted on TV
Around the house...dishes being washed in the dishwasher...laundry being done before vacation...I picked up so we wouldn't come home to a messy house!
One of my favorite things...staying in a hotel!
A few plans for the rest of the week...NYC from tomorrow until Thursday...Lake Compounce on Thursday...Dinosaur Park with Andrew on Friday...my mom's annual office pool party Friday night.
A picture thought...no thoughts tonight but will have plenty to share when we get back!
