A Simple Woman's Daybook - August 10th Edition

For Today...

Outside my window... a partly cloudy day, still and warm.
I am thinking... of all the things I would like to get done this week. It seems like so much!
I am thankful... for finally not having a headache! It may be short-lived, but this respite is wonderful!
From the kitchen... trying another new recipe tonight - turkey chimichangas!
I am wearing... army green cargo capris and a black tank top.
I am creating... more fun decorating ideas for our house. A visit to a junk market, an art fair, IKEA, and getting some new catalogues have inspired the hubby and I!
I am going... to go batty this week wondering what the hubby has up his sleeve for Saturday night. All it says on our calendar is "Date Night." He does good surprises! I'm excited!
I am reading... "Traveling Mercies" by Anne Lamott, and something about congregational development (sounds fascinating, I KNOW!). Oh! And a Dean Koontz book in those rare moments when I can read for fun.
I am hoping... for my headaches to stay away for a few days. I'd LOVE to feel fully human again!
I am hearing... summer bugs, birds, air conditioners, and kids playing outside.
One of my favorite things... the Irish accent. Ha ha ha. I loved hearing it again at the Irish Fair this weekend!
A few plans for the rest of the week... meetings, book group, working with some youth group kids, open sanctuary, coffee with friends, date night!
Here is picture thought I am sharing... I still don't have my camera... Hopefully it will come back to me today! So I thought I'd show you one of the art pieces I LOVED at the Uptown Art Fair. This is by Rick Loudermilk - so cool!
Things I am thankful for today:

1. A day at home.
2. Kelsey being so willing to reschedule - and include the hubby!
3. A few hours pain-free today.
4. Some nice notes in my email!
5. A new recipe - Turkey and Cheese Chimichangas (Weight Watchers) - turned out good!
6. Going for a long walk.
7. A beautiful sunset.
8. The hubby making malts again tonight.
9. How I Met Your Mother. TV show. Makes me giggle.
10. Looking forward to a full day tomorrow!
