My Simple Woman’s Daybook entry for Monday, June 28, 2010….
Outside my window…..are the beginnings of another beautiful summer (HOT) day! Summer has definitely settled in but, goodness, we do flip the calendar to July this week! And, I love summer weather so I am happy as a lark:)
I am thinking….about my brother and his upcoming move – yes, move! He and has family are moving again (this week!). I have really enjoyed their being so close during this past year and now they are moving across the country and I’m not sure how often we will be seeing each other again. I suppose this will be my excuse for travelling to California:)
I am wearing…..RED – yeah, not white. Getting ready to change into work out clothes…boo. Boo for having to work out – not the clothes. How do I develop a “love” for exercising???
I am remembering….how much work it is to move – not only the packing but also the planning and all the little details to tend to that just seem to keep popping up (did you call this one or that one???) Watching my brother take care of all those details reminded me how grateful I am that we are settled in for (hopefully) a good long while. I know several who are right in the middle of moving – even some blogging friends – and I’m thinking about you guys! Hope all goes well. Also have another friend thinking about the idea of moving (changing houses). We might go look at houses together – now, that is one part of moving that I LOVE!
I am reading….the latest issue of a magazine I’ve mentioned here before – Life:Beautiful. I really enjoy this magazine.
I am hoping….our weekend plans – well, all our plans for this week, come together. I hope to see my brother and sister-in-law for a bit more before the plane takes them off. I hope to visit friends for the long weekend. And I hope my bestest friend arrives in town for a great visit with her mom – and we can find a day to visit:)
On my mind…my children.
From the kitchen…..I’m needing to make some menus for grocery shopping later this week. Right now, the cupboards are kinda bare. With my still dieting and having been out of town for quite a bit these last couple weeks, poor Hubbie has really been making due with pitiful dinner choices. He never complains but I think I need to fix the man a decent meal or two:)
Around the house…..things are dusty. Grrrr – add to my list of things to get done today…or, at least, this week.
Plans for the week….well, time with my brother and looking forward to the festivities of this weekend and it is already time for my monthly Ladies Day Out. I’m always amazed how quickly another month goes by! This month we are headed to Old Towne Alexandria, which I have mentioned several times…no doubt, I really enjoy it!
One of my favorite things…..weighing-in and seeing the scale go DOWN. (Ok, maybe that’s a bit superficial but, goodness, does it put me in a good mood! It might even motivate me to keep on exercising!)
