The Simple Woman's Daybook - September 28, 2009

FOR TODAY: September 28, 2009

Outside my window...62 Degrees….and Cloudy… is Fall finally here? I am getting really excited if it is!!!

I am thinking... Dressing in Dresses and Skirts this week. Feelin' Feminine has challenged women to be “fearlessly feminine”. I am thinking about taking the challenge.

I am thankful for...our puppies. They keep us laughing and comforted. They are good dogs.

From the kitchen... Apple-pie…leftovers from Sunday Dinner. My husband and I are going to have to share the last piece after dinner tonight.

I am wearing...Black and Blue dress, Strappy Heals

I am creating... Purses!! I am loving my sewing machine!

I am going... to my home town’s annual festival called Tustin Tiller Days with my husband for Date night this week. Looking forward to sharing some childhood memories under the autumn sky.

I am reading...O Pioneers, I am almost done with it, and it’s a great book! I need to go to the book store and pick up October’s book for the book club I am part of.

I am hoping...that my husband will hear something about a new job. We are praying like crazy, and know that God will see us through.

I am hearing...chatter and Geek talk, I love working in IT.

Around the house... I am enjoying my fall decorations. I am so pleased with how they turned out. I love this time of the year!

One of my favorite things...My calendar, it keeps us organized and on track!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Work, Angel’s Game on Wednesday, Tiller Days of Friday, lunch with a good friend on Saturday, and Church and Sunday Dinner. Good Stuff!

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

This is our cute Diesel next to some of our Fall Decor.

Wordful Wednesday - September 23, 2009 - Men Playing Like Boys

To learn more about Wordful Wednesday visit 7 Clown Circus using the button below.

A wife should be very scared when she hears "No Way!!! REALLY??" and then the door slams!!
Especially when your husband returns back with one of these....

But because nothing is fun if you do it alone....he got one for his best friend too...

That's favorite Guitar Hero's needed ice cold Slurpee refreshment to continue on with their Manliness!!!

Check out 7-11 if you have a Manly Man, who needs a few moments of boy hood silliness!!!

Sewing Fun 9/22/09

Another wonderful pattern by Keyka Lou Patterns

This little clutch has become an instant favoriate of mine to carry!

I just love the Geisha print. It reminds me of the prints from WWII.

It even has a pocket on the inside. Its small but has just enough room for the esentials to carry for a wonderful date night with my hubby.

Sewing Fun 9/13/09

I so enjoyed spending a Sunday morning and afternoon sewing a purse. I know....I know...sewing is NOT a good replacement for church , but I had a sick husband at home, and couldn't ignore the call of my sewing machine.

Thanks to Keyka Lou Patterns I ended up with a darling purse by the end of the afternoon! I just had to share! My husband even thinks it cute, and said he was proud of me!!


I just love that it has pockets!!

FOR TODAY…9/14/09

Outside my window...Cloudy and 75 degrees!

I am thinking...that I want to go somewhere soon where I can swim and float around with a frozen umbrella drink.

I am thankful for...the beginning of Ugg wearing weather…well it’s almost here at least!!

From the kitchen...Cookies! The weather is changing, and I am getting in the mood to bake!

I am wearing...lots of black today! Black top, pants, and shoes!

I am creating...Another bag. I worked hard this weekend to complete a bag and it turned out wonderfully!

I am dinner tonight with my Mom tonight.

I am reading...Wives and Daughters

I am hoping...that my husband feels better. He is having some stomach issues today. I hate it when he is sick.

I am hearing...lots of humanness; it’s a good day to be alive today!

Around the house...we have puppies to wash and clothes to clean! Almost caught up on my laundry!

One of my favorite things...Driving to work with the music loud and the sun roof open in my husband stick shift red sportscar. We didn’t carpool because he is home sick today. I got to race around singing “It’s Five O’clock Somewhere” at the top of my lungs at 8am!! Its a great way to start the day!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Housework tomorrow night, Family Matters on Wednesday at Church, Laundry on Thursday, and that funny thing called work.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

These are my grandparents. I hope that Ryan and I look like this when we have been married for 50+ years!

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