The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, July 3, 2012...

Outside my window...the sun is setting, it's almost night.  It's hot and humid and will probably continue to be for the rest of the summer.

I am thinking...of how very blessed I am :)

I am thankful for...my children being with me, a safe move, an organized home, a pantry full of food, a roof over our heads.

I am going...to take a shower in a few minutes.

I am wearing...a black and white top, black and white skirt, and black flip-flops.  A bit monotone, I know.  It's been in the low 90s today but with the humidity it feels like 96 degrees.

I am noticing...some fireworks going off, and it isn't even the Fourth yet.

In the kitchen...I made marinara sauce for our cheese raviolis, and along with that the choice of shrimp or chicken.

I am reading...my devotions in the mornings.  I haven't gotten to reading much else.

I am wondering...when this heatwave is gonna end?  We didn't have a true winter, spring felt more like summer, and summer is turning out to be a real scorcher.  I'm hoping the weather will take a turn soon.

I am hoping...that this heat doesn't spark hurricanes.  They love warm water, and the ocean is at optimal temperatures right now.

I am looking forward to...finding fun stuff to do that isn't outdoors.  I don't know if we could stand the heat!

Around the house...I've done furniture moving, rearranging, redecorating, and it's looking pretty good!  I wasn't sure it would work, but thank God all is fitting in beautifully.

I am pondering these words..."Many of us suffer from temptations from which we have no business to suffer." - Oswald Chambers.

One of my favorite things...air conditioning!!  That is provision from God right there!

A few plans for the rest of the week...Molly needs to go in to have her yearly rabies shot.  I'm not looking forward to that :P.  We don't have any other fixed plans for this week, and that's just fine with me :)

Wanna join in the fun?  Visit Peggy at the Simple Woman's Daybook.  God bless.

Praying for a moderation in the heat all over the States right now. Yesterday was my worst day because the house hadn't cooled down overnight at all, but we had a cooling trend last night with a wee bit of rain--we're in Canada. I feel blessed, but hope the weather changes for you all soon.
