The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today (July 5, 2011)


Outside my window...
dark 97 degrees

I am thinking...
about how uninspired I am with blogging and photography recently :( I hope to get out of this state soon since there are quite a few events I want/need to document (as far as May!) and my P365 is starting to suffer.

I am thankful for...
our freedom. And being part of the people that gives just a little bit more than others to keep that freedom.

From the kitchen...
Homemade Peach Pie. It was a last minute decision to add it to the 4th of July festivities and also my first attempt at fruit pies. I don't really like fruit pies but this was sooo delicious.

I am wearing...
tank top, shorts

I am going...
to sleep!

I am reading...
One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp

I am hoping...
Nathaniel is officially back to his awesome nighttime sleeping habits. Since moving to our new place, it's been quite a task putting him to bed: rocking to sleep, constant consoling, crying in the middle of the night and getting up super early. It has been better for the last few nights and I hope I didn't just jinx it. But then again, we're going to Indiana in less than a week and that will surely throw off his routing again.

I am hearing...
silence. Everyone is in bed.

Around the house...
well, there will be a new washer and dryer within the next few days! We finally replaced the W&D I bought with my sign-on bonus as a new graduate/registered nurse back in 2007.

One of my favorite things...
seeing Nathaniel experience new things. It was his first fireworks last night and he truly enjoyed watching it. Best part: his little voice going, "Coooool!"

Inspired by the church song...
Here I Am, Lord

"I will break their hearts of stone,

Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak My words to them.
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if You lead me;
I will hold Your people in my heart."

A few plans for the rest of the week...

  • Washer and Dryer are being delivered on Thursday
  • Indiana bound on Sunday!
