The Simple Woman’s Daybook — July 12, 2011

  TODAY is  July 12, 2011
Outside my window…bright sunshiny clear blue skies with a refreshing breeze, tis cooler this week.

I am thinking…about our starting the Farmer’s market this evening, before and after Bible Story Time. and on Saturday mornings.   Lots of zucchini, yellow crooked neck  squash, yellow and green scallop squash and cucumbers are ready for sale.
I am thankful for…the hard working Farmer who is married to me.

From my learning rooms…learning how to adjust to retirement life and a 24-hour husband. Someone said, ‘You marry for better or worse, but not for lunch’. At one time I thought this funny, now….well,  it can be a challenge.

From the kitchen…I’ve gathered ingredients for fresh peach scones with mock devonshire cream,

I am wearing…jean skirt and t-shirt

I am creating…a wall hanging with Kaye England fabrics

I am going…to have to shake off this summer time laziness, in the heat it is so easy just surf the blogs or read a book.

I am reading…Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case by Agatha Christie and Plain Perfect by Beth Wiseman, a Daughters of the Promise, Amish story and listening audio book The Dark Door by Kate Wilhelm. Quite a variety.

I am hoping…my friend and I can visit our friend in Washington.

I am hearing…the Farmer’s tractor working in the garden

Around the house…my desk is drowning in a sea of invoices ad receipts needing to be rescued to the file or the trash can

One of my favorite things…hearing the bird song as I awake

A few plans for the rest of the week: purchasing backing and batting for baby/lap quilt, and attending a special services this weekend, the speaker is coming from Havana, Cuba. She is the Church of God congregation’s  spokeswoman to the Communist government. She is in her 70’s and has held this position for years. Our pastors have visited Havana several times during their Conventions and our congregation has helped with the congregation’s financial needs.

Here is picture I am sharing…

Scripture:   Jeremiah 4:3  For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.
