• Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ 8/16

      FOR Sunday August 16   Outside my window…It would be blue skies, but it’s more like smokey blue skies.  We have fires all around us here in Idaho.  Nothing close enough to cause us any problems but the smoke is now coming around us.  And the smoke really bothers my allergies.  Yesterday, though it was a beautiful day, I had to have the windows closed and the A/C on to keep the smoke out.  Today, the smoke isn’t as intense, so that’s nice.  I can leave my windows open.   I am thinking…That I can’t believe it’s time to start up school again already.  Paulie starts this week.  And…

      FOR Sunday August 2nd   Outside my window…Partly sunny and warm.  We are in the mid 90’s today.  But I think this will be our last day this warm.  After today we drop to the mid 80’s and it looks like we stay there for the next 10 days.  I like the mid 80’s, it’s such beautiful weather and I can do so much outside. I am thinking…About my dear Aunt Charlotte who passed away last week.  This is the 2nd of my most favorite Aunts who have passed away in the month of July.  I miss you Auntie Charlotte. I am thankful…That on Tuesday it will be cooler. …

      FOR Sunday July 19th   Outside my window…Well, since I’m sitting outside right now, it’s not really right to say ‘outside my window’.  😛   It’s beautiful blue skies with a slight breeze and in the low 70’s.  It’s a great day to sit outside, and I plan to do a lot of that today.  🙂   I am thinking…What a great time I had at my mom’s 75th birthday party last week.  She knew my sister and dad were making her steak and lobster, but she was pretty surprised by all the balloons, banner and the fact that Paulie and I were there to help her celebrate.  It was…

    FOR Sunday June 21st   Outside my window…Partly cloudy, but very green.  It’s getting pretty warm out too.  So glad Paul and Paulie put the window a/c in a few days ago.   I am thankful…That I was able to get the plants I wanted.  Remember when I brought up the article about plants helping with the toxins in the air?  Since then I wanted to get a spider plant and an aloe plant.  So hubby and I went looking for plants a few weeks ago and found a spider plant and a peace lily (which also help).  Then my mom found some aloe plants for me.  😛    …

      FOR Sunday June 7th   Outside my window…Clear blue skies with lots of sun.  It’s nice to have no rain at all.   I am thinking…How fun tonight should be.  Paulie’s youth group is having a party tonight for the last meeting until fall.  They decided to make it a Mother/Son Father/Daughter date night.  So Paulie asked me if I wanted to go out with him tonight to the party.  We have anticipating this for weeks.  It should be a great time.   I am thankful…For such a great youth group at our church.  Paulie really enjoys going, and we are good friends with the leader and he is…
