the Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY... Monday, July 14
Outside My Window... My in-laws have a garden that is rivaled only by Smallworld's. The tranquility and imagination I unearth while basking under sun-drenched wisteria is serenity at its best.
I am thinking... I should take lappy out on to the deck, so I can hear the birds, but it's plugged in.
I am thankful for... restless sleeps and crazy dreams.
From the kitchen... I am about to make myself a perfect cup of Organic Numi and step out into the brilliant world once I finish this post. Tea simply tastes better out of doors.
I am wearing... great board shorts I bought in Grand Bend and a light brown Reebok Original tee; my favourite toe ring.
I am creating... another study guide that I should have published and sold already but got lazy about.
I am going... to swim in the lake, later ...
I am reading... The Jane Austen Book Club
I am hoping... to embrace many things
I am hearing... the quiet tick-tock of the old-fashioned mantle clock and the delicious sound of pages in a book being slowly turned by my oldest son. I wonder how to write that sound?
Around the house... Grandma is downstairs on her computer and the boys are watching a Discovery Chanel program. Neal just left to go on a bike ride.
One of my favorite things... sharing a meal with people who validate who I am becoming and make me strive to get there. Especially if chips, potato Caesar salad and sausages are involved or it is called a grill-out.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: taking malaria pills for the first time and finally deciding which books simply cannot come with me. I am unsure which is going to be the more difficult thing to actually "do"
