A Simple Woman's Daybook

From Mama Bear's Journal....
FOR TODAY...Thursday, July 12, 2012, 6:12am

Outside my window...still a little dark, raining steadily and  70°F,  21°C 

I am thinking...It would have been a good day to stay in bed...

I am thankful...for the rain, we needed it so badly.....for the cooler temperatures....for a cozy home

In the kitchen...drying dishes to put away....fresh coffee....ingredients to prepare apple dumplings for a meeting this morning

I am pajamas and a blue robe

I am creating...

I am a meeting and luncheon today

I am wondering...what to wear, I don't like to wear sandals when it's wet outside, more chances to fall so the outfit I planned to wear won't work

I am reading...If You Could See Me Now

I am finish this quickly as I need to tidy the house and bake the dumplings before I get dressed to go out...

I am looking forward to...being with friends today

Around the house...things mostly need to be tidied...

One of my favorite things...watching it rain when its been so long without any

A few plans for the rest of the week: putting the binding on the quilt on the sewing machine....finishing up some other projects.

From the garden....Okra and Tomatoes now....everything else has suffered from the drought....

From my picture album..... 

I'm joining other day booking bloggers here.
