Simple Woman's Daybook

June 8, 2011

Outside my window...warm and sunny already! Thankful for the kiddie pool and upcoming water fight today.

I am thinking...dolls. doll shoes to be specific.

I am thankful clothesline. I would be buried under a mountain of laundry without it.

From the learning rooms...I'm learning how to do more embroidery stitches.

From the kitchen...chicken for dinner.

I am excited about..going to visit my daughter next month. Going to stay a couple of days with her.

I am wearing...culottes, blue Vneck tee and sneakers. Ready to get a lot accomplished.

I am creating..dolls. I am also working on perfecting a doll shoe pattern I drew up on Monday.

I am church tonight. The little people are excited because it is also VBS night. Our church does VBS on Wednesday evenings through out the month of June. Makes it easier with the price of gas being so high.

I am bible.

I am get somewhat organized before fireworks. Lots of things to remember and I want to get a bunch of doll clothes cut out so I can sew, sew, sew during the long days of down time.

I am hearing...Silas and Jonah playing with their trucks.

Around the needs a good cleaning. It probably won't happen on a grand scale until Friday but we will do a thorough general pick up today. OH and my sewing area is in a complete disarray. I MUST clean it today.

One of my favorite things...late night calls from my husband.

A few plans for the rest of the week...hanging at the house mostly. Children, laundry, kiddie pool, sewing and a bit of knitting. Already planning the next round of dolls.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing: My husband and I going out on a date. I had attempted to curl my hair with one of those super hot curling irons and my married daughter wanted to see it. So I actually took this picture on my cell phone and texted it to her.


  1. Is that a recent picture! Do you have on lipstick!!?? You look lovely!

  2. Wish I could be a fly on the wall while you're working on the dolls. I love reading your busy list of things to do.
