The Simple Woman's Daybook August 25

For Today...August 25

Outside my window... kids on their way to school....sun shining on the trees...a bit of a chill in the air...it is a BEAUTIFUL morning.

I am thinking... what a full summer we had, despite me wanting a nice calm summer...but loving every minute (well ALMOST every minute) of it all.

From the learning rooms... knowledge is information, wisdom is knowing what to do with that information.

I am thankful for... the fact that I have been REDEEMED!! WOOHOO!!!

From the kitchen...waiting for my elusive cup of coffee...looking at a pile of dishes that need to be put in the dishwasher.

I am wearing... Jeans, thermal long sleeve shirt, and tennies.

I am reading... getting ready to read (and hopefully apply) Curt and Marybeth Whalen's book "Learning to Live Financially Free".

I am hoping... my kids have a great year with school and I get the things accomplished that I need to.

I am creating... getting ready to start "creating" some things for our Ladies Retreat.

I am praying... that I snap out of it and don't spend a whole school year in mourning that Thomas is now a senior and will shortly after graduation be leaving for boot camp.

Around the house... as previously stated...need to get those dishes done.

One of my favorite things... waking up in the morning and being cold and having to curl up in a nice soft comfy sweater.

A few plans for the rest of the week... possible lunch with daughter-in-law, some church stuff...other than that, hoping for a nice quiet week....pppfff ya right!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

I love watching the sun come up over the creek at our family property!
