Simple Woman's Daybook 8/18

Outside my window...the remains of our garden. We finally tore out all the dead plants. It's nice to have a fresh start!

I am thinking...about photography. I haven't been taking many pictures lately and would really like to take more.

I am thankful...for children who are willing and able to help with things like garden work. They are blessings.

In the kitchen...a spaghetti squash that I am trying to decide what to do with. Hmm....

I am wearing...a yellow dress and my old, dingy headcovering. (Gardening isn't glamorous!)

I am creating...handicrafts for the children to do in the afternoons after school is finished.

I am going...back out this afternoon to finish up the yard work.

I am wondering...if I can squeeze in a nap some time today. :)

I am reading...The Mission of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson. It's challenging and enouraging. That woman blesses me with her insight!

I am hoping...that all the work will get done today so we can have a relaxing evening.

I am looking forward to...our trip to the river on Monday. We always have so much fun.

I am learning...all about counting calories. I'm on week 3 of my healthy lifestyle change. I've lost 7 lbs. so far!

Around the house...blocks, books, and laundry. Oh my!

I am pondering...ways to be more involved in my community. As a stay at home, homeschooling, mama this isn't always the easiest thing!

A favorite quote for honor of Julia Child's 100th birthday- "A party without a cake is really just a meeting."

One of my favorite things...walking down the baby aisle at the grocery store. With all the lotions and soaps it smells just like a (clean) baby!

A few plans for the rest of the tomorrow, the river on Monday, and then a trip to Costco sometime during the week.

A peek into my day...

Be sure to check out for more!

Sally Clarkson was one of my favorite authors when I was homeschooling. Congratulations on your weight loss so far! I also need to do some cleaning up in the gardening. It is such busy time of year. Have a blessed week.

Missed your posts! But totally understand that mama-ing is more important than recording it. :) Your nature walk looked inspiring!
