The Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY, September 20, 2011
I haven’t participated in a month! I’m back in the Harbor and school has begun. I’ve been blogging lately but I went through a spell of not writing much as I grieved for my puppy dog that had to be put to sleep, and then I had to say goodbye to my home and husband in Illinois to allow my daughter to finish school out here…
Outside my window... It was beautiful! The sun was shining and it reached 74. Now it’s dark and bedtime.
I am thinking... about my former kitty cat, Zoe who ran away when we moved and then was adopted. I thought I saw her today; it turns out my neighbor has a kitty that looks almost identical.
I am thankful for... getting to see my daughter Allie last week. She’s in Costa Rica student teaching, but flew back to her college for a two week class and I drove over to see her in Spokane.
From the kitchen...last night I made a yummy pasta dish with zucchini, tomatoes and melted mozzarella cheese. I got invited over to a friend's house tonight and had salmon, fresh green beans, veggies,pound cake and white wine. Yum! I had brussel sprouts for the first time in my life!
I am wearing...an orange v-neck t-shirt with my distressed blue jean cut off shorts; both from American Eagle.
I am creating...I’ve picked up that red scarf I was knitting last spring. I will finish it!!
I am going…to get a root canal in the morning. I am bummed that I tripped and fell a week ago and this is the result.
I am reading...Verla Jean Learns to Drive by Jennifer Niven. I haven’t read much in the last few days because I got on a role of watching Mad Men on Netflix. It’s a good book though!
I am hoping... the procedure at the endodontic specialist doesn’t hurt tomorrow. Yep, I’m scared. I also hope insurance covers most of it!!
I am hearing... the T.V. and earlier my landlord on his riding mower.
Around the house… I’m in a studio apartment out here in Washington instead of my house in Illinois. I cleaned the bathroom this morning and plan to dust & vacuum before my husband visits this weekend.
One of my favorite things…is being on the Whitworth University campus on a beautiful fall day.
A few plans for the rest of the week: hearing John Lennox from Oxford speak in the morning followed by my root canal, couples bible study, Mops (I’m a mentor), a Blessings Unlimited party, and then my man Mike (hubby) comes for the weekend!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
