July Daybook


FOR TODAY
July 1, 2013

Outside my window...

are dogs, a cat, kittens, chickens and a pig
 who never cease to entertain us :-)


I am thinking...

about the cool front that blew in last night 
and how very nice the weather has been today

I am thankful...

for food grown in our backyard


In the kitchen...

I made strawberry banana pops this afternoon


I am wearing...

an Aggie t-shirt and running shorts

I am creating...

more organized, streamlined areas of my home
in hopes that when I go back to work in the fall
homekeeping will be easier 

I am going...

to the beach in two weeks! :-)

I am reading...

"Thinking in Pictures - My Life with Autism" by Temple Grandin
and I just finished "Muscle and a Shovel" by Michael Shank
I highly recommend both! 

I am hoping...

to read several more books this summer 

I am learning...

to be better at recycling

Around the house...

I'm cleaning and organizing room by room

I am pondering...

what I want to can this summer

A favorite quote...

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have,
but rather recognizing and appreciating what we do have." ~ Frederick Keonig

One of my favorite things...

butterflies



A few plans:

to have some friends over for the 4th of July

A peek into my day... 

treating the chickens to some lettuce

your pictures add so much to your daybook. I enjoyed my visit! I am hoping the bugs leave me alone long enough to get something out of my garden to can. It has been a real fight so far, and it is early in the season.

We have a garden too and love eating our own produce! Just had some squash, zucchini, onions, and potatoes from our garden tonight! Then we dipped up a bowl of ice cream and sat outside by the garden and enjoyed this unseasonably cool (In the eighties is cool here!) July evening!
