A Simple Woman's Daybook - July 20th Edition

For Today...

Outside my window... partly cloudy skies, a cool breeze, birds chirping... Beautiful day!
I am thinking... I might have to do my reading for work at the pool today. It's a serious book, I wonder if I'll be able to concentrate... I guess the only thing to do is try, huh?!
I am thankful... that the dog got her frisbee back. She's easier to exhaust into taking a nap - and she sleeps in again - thank goodness! Ha ha ha.
From the kitchen... I'm not sure yet... But I found a recipe for mussels with a coconut curry lime broth that I'm DYING to try!
I am wearing... pink, orange and yellow stripe pj pants and a lavendar tank top. It drives me nuts when my pjs don't match... Does that make me a little OCD?
I am creating... a camping menu and packing list for this coming weekend. 3 days and 2 nights with the hubby's sisters, their husbands, and their friends... Much preparation is needed!
I am going... have a peanut butter and nutella sandwich for lunch today. I just decided. Ha ha ha.
I am reading... "Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time" by Marcus Borg, and "The Geography of Bliss" by Eric Weiner.
I am hoping... for nice weather this weekend!
I am hearing... quiet... breeze, airplane, far-off lawn mowers, and occasional car...
One of my favorite things... Trader Joe's "Tea Tree Tingle" shower gel. Lovely and refreshing!
A few plans for the rest of the week... meetings, book group, confirmation interviews, coffee with a friend, youth meetings, open sanctuary, camping... a busy, but good, week!
Here is picture thought I am sharing... a Boreal, or Brown-capped, Chickadee, the newest addition to our bird-feeder community! (And no, I did not take this picture. I found it on
Things I am thankful for today:

1. The dog sleeping in!
2. No construction across the street today!
3. Time to read.
4. The hubby coming home early to go to the pool!
5. Making mussels for dinner - a new recipe. Success!
6. The hubby teasing me with, "this is the mussel-caust, we're killing dozens of mussels right here in our kitchen..." I felt like we should have been burning sage and thanking them for their sacrifice... In fact, I did thank them. Ask the hubby.
7. Preservation Hall Jazz Band - we've been listening to them all night. Love it.
8. The hubby bought me fertilizer for my flowers. So nice.
9. Prepping meals for the rest of the week - easy peasy.
10. A wonderful, relaxing night at home. A great start to the week!
