The Simple Woman's...Daybook: July
July 4, 2011
Outside my window..... I'm noticing how nice my yard looks and am thankful for all the hard work my husband puts into it. I am thinking.... about how much I love the 4th of July and I'm so greatful to God that he saw fit for me to be raised in the USA. I am thankful for........
our freedom, especially the high that was paid for that freedom over the past 235 years.
From my kitchen...
I made a delicious 4th of July French Toast Casserole and our annual Watermelon Ice-Cream. Yummy!
I am wearing.....
a blue print shirt, blue shorts, blue and white tennis shoes a white and silver necklace and silver hoop earrings. I'm looking for something red to go with it)
I am creating....... red, white and blue star garland. (stars from Pier 1 and fishing line)
I am going....... to see fireworks tonight with my sweetie
I am reading....... magazines: Costal living, Martha Stewart, Southern Lady and Celebration (love Phyllis Hoffman) I'm planning on getting "Sweetwater Gap" this week. I've been told it's a good summer read and I'm ready to begin reading "Nikon D-90 for Dummies" from cover to cover. (I believe the title tells everything in why I've picked that book)
On my mind..........
1. Why are people so disrespectful at patriotic events. I was so disappointed in the number of people who not only didn't stand to recite the pledge and sing our anthem, they couldn't be bothered to be quite long enough for those who were participating. And at a 4th of July celebration, no less.
2. Why in the world would people purposely throw trash on the ground and into a lake at said celebration. By the way, there were trash cans EVERYWHERE. Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest.
Around the house........ I've just found out I'm gonna have a house guest for a week in 2 DAYS so I'll be doing a lot of cleaning "around the house" . (which I am happy about because there is nothing more fun than company)
One of my favorite things..... decorating and then having get-togethers for holidays (ie: 4th of July this week)
A few plans for the rest of the week.....
getting the house ready and planning meals for above mentioned house guest
and a barbaque with work friends next weekend
Small window into my life .....
As I am writing this post, my man is cleaning the oven for me because he knows "I can't
