A Simple Woman's Daybook - July 6th Edition

For Today...

Outside my window... it's a GORGEOUS day! Sunny, warm, slight breeze... Perfect.
I am thinking... I need to get it in gear today... The pool is calling my name!
I am thankful... to have had such a nice weekend. Family, friends, laughter, fireworks, relaxation, good food - it was all good.
From the kitchen... leftovers tonight, shrimp tacos tomorrow, and artichoke muffeletta sandwiches later in the week!
I am wearing... pastel plaid pj pants, and an orange tank top.
I am creating... a worship service. I preach again already this coming Sunday... I could use prayers on this one - it's a tough one!
I am going... to have lots of lunches with friends this week! I like that!
I am reading... "If Grace Is True" by Philip Gulley and James Mulholland, "The Geography of Bliss" by Eric Weiner, and I've started "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert.
I am hoping... the hubby and I can go camping Friday night!
I am hearing... kids playing down the street, car alarms going off (which is about to drive me insane!), and just a little bit of construction equipment.
One of my favorite things... unexpected visits from friends!
A few plans for the rest of the week... meetings, book group, lunches with friends, volunteering at a school breakfast program, camping...
Here is picture thought I am sharing... I took this picture on our walk last week... but for some reason it didn't get published. So here it is - the last full dandelion left on the trail. Pretty, isn't it?
Things I am thankful for today:

1. Cereal and OJ for breakfast - ahhh... the simplicity of it!
2. One last day off for the holiday weekend.
3. Mom found Bailey's frisbee! Phew!
4. The neighborhood kids singing across the street - so cute.
5. A really good workout!
6. A long walk.
7. Leftover steak for dinner. Yum-a-roo!
8. Funny notes on Facebook.
9. New pictures of my niece, Finley. So cute.
10. Low humidity. Love it.

That picture of Finley is so cute I can't even stand it! What a sweetpea! She is the inspiration for TWO new floppy sun hats for Elly. (Well, Finley and the burning hot sun on Elly's head. That also provided a little inspiration.)
