The Simple Woman's Daybook--August 9, 2009

(doing a day early so I don't forget! And I'm using Elizabeth's prompts, because they are awesome)

Outside My Window ...

The sun is starting to set, the trees are green and happy, and it has been a lovely (but hot!) day.

I am listening to...
Silence, and birds singing outside.


To Live the Liturgy...

Big week!

St. Lawrence: August 10

St. Clare: august 11 (foundress of the Poor Claires)

Maximilian Kolbe: August 14

And the Solemnity of the Assumption: August 15

So with all these, I'm going to go to a lot of Noon Masses this week!
To Fit and Happy...

The Dash for Donation is on Saturday, and I'm doing the 5K. Will I see you there?

I am thankful for...
quiet Sundays spent in prayer.

I am pondering ...

How to more successfully incorporate prayer into my daily life.
From the kitchen ...
This week:
M: Israeli Spice Chicken and tomato salad
T: A Russian Passport: Potatoes and Onions; red radish salad (I do love radishes)
W: pasta w/ lemon oil and red onions
Th: Honey mustard BBQ chicken; Butter Bean Salad; Corn on the Cob with chili and lime (AKA, "Di's Dinner", that
she made one night whilst I was visiting. So good.)

I am wearing ...

Jeans, a blue Gap tank top

I am creating ...
A daily program of prayer

On my iPod...
lots of Josh Groban right now, and my gym playlist.

I am thinking...
It will be a good week. It will be a good week!

Around the House

SERIOUS cleaning last night with the parents'. Lots of stuff tossed, the carpets were very well vacuumed, and things look very nice. I SHALL KEEP IT THIS WAY!


I am reading ...

Lots of things. :) But will be attempting to make progress on the every-growing "To Read" pile. And will finish my re-read of The Time Traverler's Wife before I go see the movie this weekend.

I am hoping and praying ...
For lots of people! Sarah; Josh R.; Stephen, my bf Liz's brother who is in the military and has been sent to Iraq.
On Keeping Home ...

these candles look awesome. Thanks for the link, Liz!

Hanging up my clothes right after I wear them makes life easier. I should remember that.

One of my favorite things ...
A quiet Sunday; peach iced tea.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:

Lots of gym. Lots of noon Mass. So that means Mass during lunch break and gym at night.

Still studying for Sacraments midterm. Have to find a proctor for that ASAP.

Theater auditions for Wizard of Oz (Columbus Children's Theater) tomorrow and Tuesday. We'll see how it goes.

Dash on Saturday morning!


Picture thought

The sunflowers outside the barn at Shepherd's Corner, where we had our parish council retreat.

Be sure to visit Peggy for more daybooks!
