Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...sunny and it's supposed to be 70.  I think it feels like 55 in the house.  My fingers feel stiff from the cold.
I am thinking...about prepping for the monthly grocery run.  It is not for the faint-hearted.
I am thankful for...an awesome women's retreat at Camp Shamineau with four girlfriends! 
From the kitchen...pumpkin soup and homemade bread for supper.
I am wearing...Gap trouser jeans ($5), Gap outlet purple sweater ($6), turquoise necklace (free--I made it at camp this weekend!)
I am creating...a to-do list for my to-do list
I am going...to get my flu shot soon.
I am reading..."The House of Seven Gables" by Nathaniel Hawthorne.  But I haven't made it past the intro yet.
I am hoping...to finish my Bible study lesson before ten o'clock the night before Bible study this week.
I am hearing...Sophie whisper-singing to herself as she colors at a desk near me.  Naps are a thing of the past evidently.
Around the house...I am trying to set aside Thursdays as my power-cleaning day...laundry, vacuuming, and cleaning the bathroom and kitchen.  So far so good.  It's only been two weeks.
One of my favorite things...trouser jeans...I now own 3 pairs in different lengths and slightly different washes.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Free pie night at Baker's Square on Wednesday night, anyone?  Anyone???!!  (I've tried to do this the past two Wednesdays, and I've had no takers)

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Brenda, Me, Leah, Tara & Lisa at camp
These ladies went shopping with me, bunked with me, crafted with me, workshopped with me, ate tremendous amounts of food with me, zipped down a zip-line with me, and watched in shock and awe as I cried about every 5 minutes (it was an emotional weekend, but in a good way!).  I had a super-awesome time with them at camp, and I'm so glad to call each one of them a good friend!

Dan and Tara said...

You silly girl. It wasn't shock and awe...it was compassion! :)

I'm still full from all the food.

I had a GREAT time with you!
