Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today...

Outside my Window...finally a nice day, temps are much cooler and a lot less humid. The sun is shinning and there is a gentle breeze.

I am thinking...We have one week until school starts. We are all excited.

I am thankful for...for many things. One being my husband who works so hard for us so that I may stay home. I'm thankful for our children and homeschooling them. I am also thankful for our simple life, we hear so many people complaining about not having money for "things" but since we do not need "things" we are so content in our new Simple Life.

From the kitchen...all of my canning accessories, jars, lids, canner, funnels ect. I have everything ready. Green beans are almost ready for harvest, I will make Dilly Beans, cucumbers are coming along nicely, I will make pickles, tomatoes (we will have a lot of) I will make, sauce, crushed tomatoes, ketchup, chili sauce...just to name a few.

I am creating...our homeschool schedule and calendar for this year.

I am try and relax a bit before school starts next Monday.

I am wearing...shorts, tshirt and hair is down.

I am reading...over homeschool materials.

I am have a nice visit with my Aunt who is coming up from Delaware, with her girls on Saturday. She is only 3 years older than me.

I am hearing...the clock ticking, birds singing. LOL and my son acting like a baby to wake his sisters up...LOL

Around the gardens to be tended.

One of my favorite the quiet of the morning

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...finish homeshool calendar, gather items for our first week of school, library, relax.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you... picture taken from our deck.

Hi Jen! Thanks for your kind comments on my blog! I love that your daybook is a reflection of your heart of thankfulness and your desire for simplicity! What a joy to read about all your kitchen endeavors! Will you please post your recipe for dilly beans - we are in a fix with too many beans, no little boy and girl to help eat them up and no pressure canner to put them by for winter! I sure could use some other ideas!
May the Lord bless your day with His presence!
