Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... it is dark out. It was cloudy for most of the day.

I am thinking... I am almost ready for school to start. As much as I love the summer break I miss the routine of the school year.

I am thankful for... living near the water. We took the kids to the harbor for fishing on Saturday- well my husband did while I sat on the bench. I tried going on the dock with them until I realized it was a floating dock and I got off quick! Ever since my dizziness I can't take that motion. After that we went to the beach and had dinner there. I relaxed while the kids tried fishing again. It was a beautiful day enjoying some of the treasures here on Long Island.

From the learning rooms... I am thinking of changing the school room around. I have a few things in mind and keep looking on Craig's List for ideas :) I think I found the perfect armoire. Now if only my husband takes me to get it ;)

From the kitchen... last night I made peach cobbler. A real easy recipe I found on one of the blogs I follow.

I am wearing... a gray shirt from Old Navy and striped pajama capris (don't ask)- LOL.

I am going... to hopefully get my new armoire this week. I don't really have much else planned.

I am reading... the Bible, Womanly Dominion: More than a Meek and Gentle Spirit by Mark Chanski, The Ministry of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson, Beautiful in God's Eyes by Elizabeth George.

I am hearing... the kids playing, the A/C and the TV.

One of my favorite things... the beach. I love looking out at the water and observing God's beautiful creation. I think of the verse about how He takes our sin and buries it into the deepest part of the sea. Isn't that awesome?!

A picture for sharing... isn't it nice? I hope we get it.
