Simple Woman's Daybook: June
For today: June 29, 2009
Outside my window: Dusk slowly wending its way across the blue sky. Bald eagles are chasing each other over the field. Teenage hummingbirds are mock-fighting around the feeder.
I am thinking: which part of my house to-do list to start on first.
From the learning rooms: learning to play new songs on the kinderharp for next year's kindergarteners
I am thankful for: a lovely afternoon in the sun reading with my sweetie while the dog watched bugs flying around the grass. Quite relaxing.
From the kitchen: Persian Lemonade
I am wearing: my chinese-frogged blue shirt, black pants, stripey pink socks and the corgi sweatshirt I won from Christmas Corgi's site over my shoulders
I am reading: "Smart Play" by Barbara Sher and skimming through the new lot of Books By Mail library books I got today.
I am hoping: the sun stays for the whole week like the weather channel predicts.
I am creating: new watercolour nametags for next year's kindergarten class
I am hearing: The sound of my new hamster running in her wheel. The Law and Order two-note scene change percussion. The dog "flup-flup" whining in his sleep. The high-pitched cries of eagles outside and the squeaks of the hummingbirds fighting.
Around the house: The Frog is watching TV and sketching out a map. The dog is dreaming.
One of my favourite things: orange-coloured salmonberries right off the bush
A few plans for the rest of the week: reorganizing a lot of cupboards and closets now that I have some time. Enjoy the sun. Walk to the ferry terminal. Ride my bike.
Here is a picture-thought I am sharing with you:
