June 8th Daybook

June 8, 2010 by Rieshy






FOR TODAY as part of The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...
my rhododendron is suddenly gaining height outside my window.  I don't have to lean against the glass and look down to see it anymore.


I am thinking...
that I enjoyed my Dad's brief visit.


I am thankful for...
food. 


From the learning rooms...
we watched Life is Beautiful last night with the kids.


From the kitchen...
I can hear left-over birthday cake calling me, but I didn't get a chance to sneak a piece before my Littles got up.  Drat.


I am creating...
still knitting on the same pair of black socks.


I am going...
to plant purple-hull peas, butternut squash and okra today.


I am reading...
I just finished The Endless Steppe, by Esther Hauzig.  It's why I am so thankful for my pantries filled with food.


I am hoping...
that the economy improves.


I am hearing...
the three youngest boys playing on photo-booth.


Around the house...
my sleeping children that don't know how excited they are going to be to go weed with me today.


One of my favorite things...
flowers spilling out of terra-cotta pots. 


A few plans for the rest of the week:
Reading, weeding, cleaning, swimming, repeat.



Here is my "picture for thought". 


My 15 year old daughter is talented and fearless.

Oh wow! I LOVE the photo! I also like flowers spilling out of pots - terracotta are nice, but I'd settle for any pots right now ;-)
Hope you have fun weeding...!

So were they excited? I like to weed, except I had a lot to do yesterday when the flowers I thought I had turned out to be weeds :-(

No one actually was excited to weed. I don't understand why- it was only in the 90's with 95% humidity.
