The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY APRIL 27, 2009...

Outside my's cloudy with a chance of thunderstorms. Most of the week will be like this.

Waiting…for the report from the home inspection last Friday.

Catching up on…organizing the office. Help! I'm drowning!

I am thinking...about my grandson, Zak's, 18th birthday today. Seems unbelievable.

I am thankful for...the motivation I felt this morning to actually start my Couch-2-5K again this morning. I don't know how I will do it the rest of the week because it's supposed to rain.

From the kitchen...pasta with Italian sausage, tomatoes and cream; ceasar salad and I have some very over-ripe bananas I need to use, so I think I'll make a chocolate banana cake.

I am wearing... my workout clothes from my run/walk, but I took off my running shoes and I'm wearing flip-flops.

I am creating... a way to finish the cement floor in the newly vacated extra bedroom.

I am going... to the church to work for a couple of hours this afternoon.

I am reading...I haven't finished Everyday Sacred, but I also haven't started anything new, either.

I am doesn't rain all next weekend. Next weekend is Toad Suck Daze (an annual street festival here in Conway, Arkansas) and Tom and I are manning our church face-painting booth for 6 hours on Sunday.

I am remembering…how much my sons loved growing up near the beach. When they were little, we lived about 1/2 hour drive from Santa Cruz in northern California (and lived in Santa Cruz for a short while). When they were pre-teen and teenagers, we moved to Carlsbad (southern California) and lived about 10 minutes from the beach.

I am hearing...the trash truck pick up the recyclables.

Around the house...mostly just requires a little pick-up this morning.

One of my favorite things... is the trail where I do my run/walk. When I go consistently, I see the same people each time and we always smile, nod hello or say good morning.

A few plans for the rest of the week …Tom's going to scrape the ceiling in the spare bedroom this evening. I'm going to paint the walls and ceiling and figure out what to do about the floor. I also need to do some posts on my food blog.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

My wife and I always look forward to taking the kids to the Toad Suck Daze festival in downtown Conway.

Let's hope it doesn't rain!
