Simple Woman's daybook

7:42 PM



I'm participating in A Simple Woman's Daybook carnival.


Outside my Window...
My eldest, taking shots on his hockey net, my husband's car disappearing for his ice hockey game.


I am thinking of...
my to do list, places to go, making the week fun.


I am thankful for...
my brother and sister-in-law letting me have their daughter for the week. My daughter is enjoying the pretend of having a sister, sharing a room. I love listening to them all interact, there's a lot of love.

From the kitchen...
the 3 little ones, including my niece, eating dixie cups.

I am creating...
pretend dollar bills for my niece to put in a wallet.

I am going...
to have my Dad over for dinner on Thursday to share our photos and video of our trip to the Northern Neck. My Dad gave me my love for all things film. He will collect everything of mine, add it to his, and make awesome, edited DVDs of the whole experience for every family!
Cecil B. de Pops!

I am wearing....
the prettiest blue, long, cotton skirt. It is predominantly dark blue but with a vine pattern all over it in a lighter, almost lavender blue...A white, elbow length T with a notched neckline... Blue denim ballet flats with a gold buckle toggled with leather and wood.

I am reading...
through my "in" bin....finding all sorts of treasures..."Ah, so that's where that is!"


I am hoping....
that my niece doesn't get homesick and that I can do a better job with her hair. This morning she came downstairs and said," I couldn't brush my teeth! I looked in the mirror and just hated my hair. I was shocked at how I looked!" Uh-oh.

I am hearing...
Spongebob and giggles.

Around the house...
are more shoes...a new set of crocs from a visiting cousin,
the whirlwind that is the "Cub-a-dub", as we call her.

A Favorite thing...
A "snack" Mass. After Mass on the 2nd Sundays of the month, our Latin Mass society has refreshments afterwards and the children play and the parents talk. My husband was sharing with me the funny way the husbands tease each other. Our substitute priest sat down and just about led a catechises for the families. One of our 20-something men was asking some great questions, he is so on-fire for his faith. I was so glad my eldest was sitting there listening to these soldiers for Christ. This week was just lovely, thank you Lindsay & Paul for such a beautiful spread of fruit and treats elegantly prepared. I forgot to ask you how your 4th of July party went...if you're reading this. :)

Plans for the coming week...
Get the hair, all the hair, tight and flat and into the right pony-O and wet it just the way her Nannie does!

A Picture to share... 3 year old art work
She had created another picture, the "this is me when I turn into a boy" with exaggerated anatomy. Not postable, really....
I prefer this "happy" art!

That does sound like a pretty skirt! I am hoping to learn to sew my own-maybe after my next baby is born. Then again, maybe not:)
