The Simple Woman's Daybook

For one reason or the other, it has been about 3 weeks since I last participated in SWD.  Summer  sometimes has a way of interfering with our regular routines.~smile~

Outside my window.....the sun is setting and night is falling.

I am thinking.....that Fall cannot get here quick enough. It has really been hot and humid here in NE Louisiana and it feels like a steam sauna when you step outside.  I'm tired of that and ready to move on to Fall. Heat and humidity play havoc with makeup and hair. ~wink~

I am thankful for......the opportunity that I have to serve as Assistant Coordinator of our Women's Ministry at our church this coming church year. The Coordinator and I have met several times and have some great ladies to serve on the council and have plans for a productive year.  I like to serve in some capacity and I felt this is where the Lord wanted to use me at this time.

From the kitchen.....well, today I went to our daughter's and watched her make and bake Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls. I know it's not from my kitchen, but after all, she is my "flesh and blood" so that should count. ~chuckle~  Let me tell you, I was so impressed and I know that Ree would be too if she saw what a good job my daughter did in making these, oh, so difficult, time consuming, calorie laden, cinnamon rolls. If you do not have Ree's cookbook then I recommend that you order yourself one.  It will be a wonderful addition to your kitchen.

I am wearing.....my usual evening "comfy clothes."

I am going......with our "birthday club" out to lunch on Wed. to celebrate mine and another member of the groups birthday. It's about two months late for hers and about a week early for mine, but we'll still enjoy the celebration.  We have about 3 outings a year to celebrate the birthdays of the 7 of us. It's always fun "girl time."

I am reading.....Take One by Karen Kingbury. I really almost didn't read this book because it is the first of a series of 4. I have read other series of Karen's and they get me so wrapped up that I forget that they are fictional characters and I find myself fretting over them like they are family. 

I am hearing.....the roar of a baseball game as Hubby watches it on TV.

Around the house........we are replacing a couple of light fixtures in our house and having a new commode put in our Master Bath.  Now, doesn't that sound exciting?  Well, our present one is 29 years old and has seen its' "better day." 

One of my favorite things.....is having my two grandchildren reach out their arms for me to take them. Aweeeeeeeee!

A few plans for the rest of the week........on Thursday my two Grandchildren, their Mommies and myself will be taking them to see "The Wonder Pets" and "The Backyardigans." These are two of the cutest childrens' shows on NickJr. and while my Grandchildren are only 9 months and 21 months, I think they will be spellbound at the performance.  Regardless, their Mommies and me will have a good time.
