The Simple Woman's Daybook

*~::June 24, 2008::~*

Outside My Window...A gentle breeze blows, making the lacy looking coral bells dance in the sunshine.
I am thinking...About what a wonderful God we have, Who always provide what we need, maybe not always what we want, but what we need ... I shall NEVER be in want!
I am thankful for...My family and the joy and love we share in our house. I'm thankful the Lord graciously put my in the family I'm in ... how wise He is!
From the kitchen...M&M/chocolate chip cookies for piano students ... and the left overs for us. :) Yumm!
I am wearing...Bare feet, new jeans, a white spaghetti strap under my new favorite white spaghetti strap that has pink flowers on it with a pink silky ribbon, which is under my long sleeve khaki-colored snap up, the sleeves got hot so I have rolled them up. I have a new vine-y hair clip in my hair, cooking cookies gets hot, and just moments ago I was wearing an apron to protect my beautiful frilly shirt.
I am creating...Cookies!! :) But you already knew that.
I am going...To teach piano this after noon and then spend sometime doing different things around the house.
I am reading...The recipes for dinner (Texas Hash), the cookie recipe (Color cookies) and the timer on the stove that tells me how long it is until the beeping tells me the cookies are tired of getting baked.
I am hoping...That dinner gets done in time for my brother to eat with us (his wife-y is gone for the day so he's eating with us) and also for some time outside today, in the hot sun and warm breeze, smelling my roses and letting my feet enjoy the grass.
I am hearing...Fernando Ortege, The Shadow of Your Wings, playing on my MP3 player and the timer beeping on the stove ... just a moment please, I must rescue the cookies.
Around the house...The fans are blowing, keeping the air moving so we don't roast in the house. The breeze moves the curtains that adorn the windows.
One of my favorite things...Is (are) the little glass bottles holding roses in the window that I put there yesterday. They are so cheery!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: I'm not really sure. :) Teach piano, as every week. Work on my crocheting project, make an apron for cooking that I've been meaning to make for ever, etc..
Here is picture thought I am sharing...The new favorite shirt I was telling you about earlier. :)

That's a pretty summery shirt!

The cookies sound good.I forgot that you do bake some desserts.

How are the classes going on the new piano?

Ana said...

Thank you. I love my shirt. It's so pretty and Jane Austen-ish looking.

Yes, I do bake some desserts. Generally only cookies every Tuesday morning though, since Leah is around I have no need to make desserts. :)

And the piano is great!!! And the Beethoven (the song I mentioned in a post a little while ago) is going just as wonderful!! I play it three or more times a day, just loving how it sounds and how it feels in my fingers.

Thank you for asking! It's nice to know that you are interested in little things that I don't mention on a regular basis. :)

Hmm...I thought I left a comment, but I guess it didn't go through.

I LOVE that shirt! It's so pretty...I think I'll have to try to make one! I wonder if I could make something like that with some sort of sleeves? I like how it looks the way you have it with a shirt over it, but I roast if I have too many layers on! :)

Ana said...

I'm sorry if it didn't go through. Please keep trying if your comment doesn't get published. I wouldn't want to miss a comment because it didn't go through. :)

Yes, you shall have to make one too, it doesn't look like it would be too hard to make. I'm sure you could do something to make it have sleeves, and go up higher in front. :) It's rather low. I don't really mind layers if I can roll up the sleeves or something to keep my arms exposed to the wind. I guess you just get used to it! :)
