July 6th Daybook

July 6, 2010 by Rieshy

FOR TODAY as part of The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...
I can see new mulch.  Beauty to any gardener's eye.

I am thinking...
of how I'm slightly sore from loading and unloading a 16 foot flat bed trailer with mulch, twice.

I am thankful for...
free mulch from the city and a friend who shared her trailer and her muscle!

From the learning rooms...
a list of German-language books to read from our Swiss visitor.

From the kitchen...
bagels being toasted.

I am creating...
a rough draft of a story that I've daydreamed about for years.

I am going... to a doctors appointment for my 4 year old.  Can there be a worse timing for a downtown appointment than 4:15 p.m.?

I am reading... Bis Zum Morgengrauen
as soon as it comes.

I am hoping...
that I won't need a dictionary when I read the above. But I will.

I am hearing...
my two Littles playing with lego-built spaceships under my desk.

Around the house...
is a lot of unfolded laundry and dust.

One of my favorite things...
working with a shovel and hoe.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
we are trying to play tourist this week with our Swiss guest.

Here is my "picture for thought" ... Digging mulch can be family fun, right?

Heh-heh !
We've "done" the mulch thing here several times as well, Susan! Actually, we need more, and the boys just moan and groan when we mention it! :D
Have a great day!

I am listening to....banana phone and watching Q dance around. He has a cold. It's summer. IT iS NOT FAIR!
I love your lists, and your obsession with mulch. I mean OBSESSION!
I like peeking into your morning. Now I want a bagel...and some mulch!

Pam, You are teaching your boys a valuable lesson: there is no such thing as too much mulch.

I absolutely love the smell of fresh mulch. And now this is going to sound weird, but I also really loved shoveling mulch for 2 summers in a row. The dump truck would come and dump this huge pile in my driveway and it was fun to shovel it and watch it tumble down.
