The Simple Woman's Daybook - April 27, 2009

FOR TODAY... April 27, 2009

Outside my window...Cloudy around 60 degrees today.

I am thinking...about my husband. He had “rough” first week at his new job. The mix of a new company, new people, and new job really had him on edge. I am hoping and praying that this new week will be easier for him.

I am thankful for...the wonderful weekend I had. My mom and I had a Mother-Daughter fun day on Saturday. We went Whale Watching in the Morning with Captain Dave's and his Dophin Safari which was amazing, and then we went to see the ranunculus down at the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, CA. We had a wonderful day enjoying some of Southern California’s beautiful wild life as well as time bonding together. It was a wonderful blessing.

From the kitchen...Still working on my menu plan for the week…I am a bit behind after my busy weekend.

I am wearing...Black Top, Jeans, Black Sandal Heals – Yup..You guessed it…my boss is out again today..While the cats away…the mice…well don’t dress up…LOL

I am creating...well…trying to create something nice to bring with me this weekend to our marriage retreat to give my husband to let him know how special he is to me...any ideas?

I am the market tonight to get food for the week.

I am reading... The Love Dare, Lady of High Regard, and The Excellent Wife. I am excited to start reading The Scarlet Pimpernel and Wives and Daughters starting on May 1st with Emily at A Beautiful Life and her Kindred Spirits Reading Group.

I am hoping...for time to see our new great niece Bella. She is 6 days old today!

I am hearing...lots of conversations about the weekend. Sounds like everyone had a good time!

Around the house... Just the normal, cook, clean, play, sleep, and get up and do it all again! I really like it when our routine works, it’s really comforting.
One of my favorite things...My Terrarium that my friend Sarah made me this weekend. I have a black thumb….she is blessed with a green thumb….It has a little rock path, and five succulent plants. She says I only have to water it every 5 weeks…so hopefully…I won’t kill it! I am looking for some miniatures to go in…I really want little flamingos…or something pink to put in it.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Work Monday thru Friday, then we are off to A Weekend to Remember for a Marriage Retreat in Irvine.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...

My Mom and I getting ready to go on our whale watching adventure.

We didnt see any whales, but we wer right in the middle of 1000+ Common Dolphins...There is nothing common about them!

Mom and I at the Flower Fields.

The beatiuful fields...And people say there isnt a God...

Special Thanks and Blessings to Peggy at The Simple Woman for hosting this post.
