The Simple Woman's Daybook for June 30, 2008

Visit Peggy's for more Daybook Entries.


Outside my a cloud filled sky but the sun is trying its best to stick it out.

I am thinking...of when I can get out to the garage to strip my antique armoire and how I'm going to refinish it...paint or stain? It's headed for the playroom.

I am thankful for...a thoughtful friend who picked cherries for me today (even pitted and froze them! Thank you!) and children who slept in this morning so that I was able to get a few extra things done despite the fact that I slept in too!

From the kitchen...Stuffed Shells and Garlic Crescents

I am creating...a plant stand out of an old bar stool

I am enjoy being home today

I am wearing...denim skirt and black tee (perhaps this is my Monday uniform?)

I am reading...A Life That Says Welcome (I took a break last week from it to read The Indian in the Cupboard, previewing it for a read-aloud for the boys)

I am hoping...that Mr. Steady comes home early today so I can work a little longer to catch up.

I am hearing...nothing but the hum of the computer

Around the house...Mr. Steady has a list of small things to do today, all of which involve either a drill, screws or both.

One of my favorite Greenhouse candles that I forgot I had and found this week

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The's Picnic in the Park week with the moms and children from church

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...inspiration for my kitchen, go see more of this beautiful kitchen at Cherry Hill Cottage. I have similar color paint chips hanging in my kitchen right now, I just can't commit to painting the cabinets anything wild and exciting right now. Maybe I'll do a bright color on armoire for the play room.
