Summer Crossing

DONE! Told you it would be a quick read.

It is never going to quit raining. My allergies are raging. My head hurts and all this damp is making all my joints hurt. Blah blah blah!!!!

Wordless Wednesday


Simple Woman’s Day Book — June 22, 2009

Outside my window I am watching my husband head off to work. Now it is all quiet out there.

I am thinking about what my day holds — mostly ironing.

I am thankful for today, my family, Swedish Bitters Capsaisin ointment and Tylenol Arthritis

From the kitchen I am thinking about making soup for dinner.

I am wearing shorts and a tshirt, DOK cross and again, no shoes (hey, I am a southern girl — it is hot here!)

I am reading “The Shroud of the Thwacker” still — haven’t had much time for reading this last week but hopefully I intend to catch up in the next few days.

I am hoping that my knee continues to improve — at least I can bend it some now.

I am creating a clean counter in the laundry room — time to relocate all that quilting stuff.

I am praying for the ACNA Assembly being held today through Wednesday.

Around the house I am thinking about a major decluttering project.

One of my favorite things and most unfavorite things at the same time is Monday! I really hate for the weekend to end and yet it is nice to get back on my regular routine even if that does involve copious amounts of ironing.

A few plans for the rest of the week include crafts and reading — I absolutely have to use up some of this quilt stash I have — see, I need to shop and I can’t because of THE STASH so I have to do something about THE STASH.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you

For Today

Outside my window I see the fruits of my gardening labor — geraniums, lantana, purslane, pansies, and heliotrope

I am thinking about all the catching up I have to do today

From the learning rooms I am learning about being less wasteful

From the kitchen I am learning that I like my own food more than restaurant food

I am wearing denim capris and a striped blouse

I am reading “The Shroud of the Thwacker” and “The Night Watch”

I am hoping that my new “schedule” will help me accomplish more

I am creating some Christmas gifts

I am praying all the time

Around the house I am seeing that I need another great “clean out”

One of my favorite things is time

A few plans for the rest of the week is to grocery shop, tend to the new plants, work on my quilt and try to keep to my new schedule!

England 2005

Yesterday I had lunch with my priest’s wife and we were discussing genealogical research while traveling. She has never been to the UK and I would love to return to do some bone digging and photo taking. We decided it would be fun to go together. That conversation prompted me to glance through my photos from our trip and I ran across one of the cutest buildings I have ever seen. It is a pub in London and, although we didn’t go in, I was quite taken with the photo and thought I would share. The architecture is great and being sandwiched between the two larger buildings is just postcard perfect.
