The Simple Womans Daybook

FOR TODAY June 22, 2009

Outside my window...The sun is shining brightly and I can tell it's gonna hit triple digits again today. Summer has arrived in all her glory. I wish however she would have kept the temps at least in the 80's.

I am thinking...that the house is quiet but not for long. I will enjoy the few moments of solitude while I have them.

I am thankful for...about how lucky I am to have the opportunity to have my grand babies here for two weeks. It might be tiring but I am loving every minute of it. Sometimes I find myself just looking at them and my eyes tearing up. They remind me so much of my babies that have grown up.

From the learning rooms...I am learning again that laughter makes you feel good all over. That your grand children remind you of your own children and no matter what they do it's never wrong. I'm learning a messy house comes with the territory when they are here. And I'm learning that it's ok to have a messy house when they are around. To enjoy them and not spend my time cleaning house and fussing about things.

From the kitchen...I smell the coffee brewing. For once my kitchen is clean, no dirty dishes in the sink and on the countertops

I am wearing...a nightshirt and flip flops.

I am creating...a fun filled home with lots of laughs. A place where my grand babies can have wonderful memories made.

I am going...outside today to play in the pool, to swing on the swing set and to gather veggies from the garden.

I am reading...the looks on my babies faces

I am hoping...that the temps give us a break soon

I am hearing...the sounds of a fan running, and the air conditioners

Around the's total messy chaos. Toys are scattered everywhere, dirt and grass are tracked in and it's pure heaven.

One of my favorite things...was hearing my grandson tell me the other day that "He loves me" and that "I am a jolly grandma to be around". LOL.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Just enjoying life

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Have a wonderful week my friends,
