A Simple Woman's Daybook

Monday, June 22, 2009

Outside my window...
blue sky, white clouds, green trees, another hot day.

I am thinking...
how excited I am that my grandkids are coming! I am meeting our oldest son halfway tomorrow to get Lyssa and Jacob. The rest of the family will be here this weekend, and Ron will be home. I love, love, love it when all three of our kids and their spouses and all SEVEN of our grandchildren are here. Whoo Hoo! Jason and his family have not yet met Camryn (or the puppies).

I am thankful...
for our blessed life. It's a scary, mixed up world out there, and I am so thankful to God for the stability and blessings in our life.

From the kitchen...
waffles for breakfast this morning.

I am wearing...
still in my PJs--soft blue pj pants and a pink and green striped pj top that doesn't match. And I was wandering around my backyard with the puppies earlier. Hope I didn't scandalize any neighbors with my chic fashion statement.

I am creating...
boundaries. Literally. I have things lined up all along one side of the breakfast room to keep the puppies off the carpet and on the tile. They keep figuring out how to break through. Also have things lined up outside on one side of the patio to keep them from going under some bushes on that side where I can't reach them. It's a struggle keeping them away from there because I think Darcy and Banzai may have killed a squirrel and put it under there when they were here. I'm going to ask Josh to look when he is here.

I am going...
to Mom's, then to run a couple of errands.

I am hearing...
a lawnmower somewhere, the hammering of the guys across the street building a pavillion in my neighbors backyard, my AC running. Puppies are quiet for now.

Around the house...
lots of laundry--sheets, towels and puppy rags, my clothes. Seems like a big pile of laundry for only one person, but I haven't been doing it as often as I usually do.

One of my favorite things...
dimples.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
I'll pick up Lyssa and Jacob tomorrow. Aubrey has PT on Wednesday. Ron will home on Thursday. Mostly I'll be playing with grandkids and puppies!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
From my back yard:

Hot Texas sky.














Hot Texas flower--Pride of Barbados















Very hot Texas pepper--habanero.



















Ahhh, cool grape arbor.

Great pics to go along with this post. I tried habanero in cheese once . . . recently. A tiny bit made my eyes tear up. I watched my youngest shove thick slices hand over fist of the same cheese and declare it not that hot. Hmmmmm.
