Simple Woman #56

For Today . . . August 24, 2009

Outside my window. . . the sun is just going down on a lovely summer's day - warm sunshine, cool gentle breeze, +24 degrees C today

I am thankful . . . to be able to help with the moving and house cleaning this weekend.

And I am also thankful . . . for fresh food in abundance!!

I am praying . . . for safety and protection as we drive home this evening.

I am thinking . . . about going to watch Meadow at her swimming lessons this week.

I am celebrating . . . the excitement of a little one as Silas begins to talk ("car" is the first word we hear!) and point at things. He loves the ceiling fan and points to it when Heather asks him "Where is the fan?"

From the kitchen . . . um, not too much new today! We ate leftover pizza and fresh blueberries at lunchtime and then had supper in a restaurant :))

I am wearing . . . blue jeans, purple-pink tshirt and sport sandals.

I am reading . . . Joshua by (have to look that up)

I am hoping . . . to go for an early morning bike ride with my friend tomorrow.

I am hearing . . . "Amazing Love" on the 2007 Praise and Worship CD

I am creating . . . a layout about things I cannot do without each day.

Around the house and yard . . . the last few raspberries to pick, grass to cut (didn't get done last week), recycling to take in and suitcase to unpack.

One of my favourite things . . . watching the sun set.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . more garden produce to pick, groceries to pick up (a great sale on this week!), visit Meadow and Blake, phone Melinda and my sister, wash some windows.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . . a view from Sunset Park in Brooklyn - so much to see every which way you looked in that place!


  1. It's great to catch up with you. I went to the market yesterday and stocked up on fresh produce, but I wish I were at your place doing it instead!
    Can't wait to talk and catch up on things. Thanks for the picture of Blake and Meadow. He's filling out! Enjoy your visit with them. I'm missing everyone this week. Love you lots.

  2. Your day sounds so peaceful! I love the idea of a morning bikeride with a friend.
