The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today... Tuesday, August 4, 2015, 7:50 a.m.

Outside my window...Its 73 and partly cloudy..with 83% humidity..no rain in the forecast..expected to reach 97 today..already this morning on the feeder I have seen a pair of Cardinals and some purple Finches..on the ground: a male Towhee, a Wren and a Squirrel

A Bible verse I'm sharing...Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others......from the 4th chapter of Philippians
I am thinking...about what is good in my life..

I am thankful...for AC during these hot days...for all that God has given me...for Honey Bear...and answered prayer...

I am wearing...Pajamas and a robe

I am creating...lots of 2X2 inch squares for Nature's Journey....here is the finished center panel:

I am going...to run an errand later this morning

I am wondering...if that is a helicopter I hear...we live near the Redstone Arsenal and often hear and see Army aircraft in the sky...

I am reading...

I am hoping...to do some actual sewing today...I pinned 2 inch pairs together yesterday....I still have 100 more to cut out for this section alone...also, I would like to work on card making and spend a little time on my cross stitch project..
I am learning...new things every day....

In his garden...we're still getting tomatoes...the peas aren't quite ready to harvest....a little Okra each day.

A song that stays on my mind...the rendition of "The Man in the Mirror" from 
the movie: Joyful Noise

In my kitchen...not sure I'll cook anything today...we have leftover fish, pork chops, two kinds of potatoes, green beans, okra,slaw, peas, rolls and cornbread.

A favorite quote for today...
"Courage is being scared to death...and saddling up anyway"......John Wayne

From my photo album...

One of my favorite things...Tropical Trail Mix from Walmart....I eat way too much of it.

We had a very busy weekend....Friday I spent the day with Daughter, it was a cooler day with low humidity so we went to Bridge Street, an outdoor mall and walked around browsing a few stores and then had lunch at Conners.....we ran several errands while out...
Friday night we went to preview the band's half time show...there are about 250 members and they sounded real good....this is the Princess' first year to march.
Saturday afternoon we made homemade ice cream...Daughter came over and the Princess brought 'the boy' (that is what she calls her friend)...Wonder Boy was off looking for a car with his other grandfather so we had to send him some ice cream to eat later...
Sunday we after church we went with Wonder Boy and Daughter to eat lunch at O'Charley's...he drove us all in his new car...

  5. I enjoyed catching up with you through your Day Book post. Do tell, how is it riding with a grandchild who's old enough to have his own car? Only 7 or 8 years and I guess I can find out for myself... Time passes too quickly!!!
