Simple Womans Daybook for May 17, 2010:
Outside my window…there is a steady, soft rain that is making the house feel cozy – and making it hard for me the wake up my brain!
I am thinking…..about Deb (at The Way We Are) and her biopsy this morning. The waiting has been difficult and I am glad that she is finally getting the procedure done – and now praying not only for the results but also for the days of waiting for those.
I am thankful for…..all of Tyler’s classmates graduating this week – what a great moment! It is exciting to see what direction God is leading many of them…especially having watched many of them grow up from just babies in our nursery:)
I am remembering….Tyler’s 13th birthday that included several of those boys graduating on Friday. We went to laser tag, then bowling and to the always popular Cici’s Pizza! Then they all stayed the night at my house – what fun! We all laughed and then laughed some more – until I was crying! They were all really special friends…and are such good boys. (And some of them have grown incredibly tall!)
I am going….back to an antiques store I visited this past weekend. We saw a table that “really caught our eye” so we came home, measured for, thought over, talked about….and decided, yes, it would be perfect in our family room. Now, let’s just hope its still there. That’s a chance I always take but I try not to impulse buy and so I just have to take the chance. Cross your fingers:)
I am reading….about a new diet plan (ugh) but I’m not willing to quit trying. I’ll have to let you know what I think after I make a decision.
I am hoping…..to make it through this week – with all the senior activities and graduation.
On my mind….Tyler.
From the kitchen…..I was thinking about making these adorable graduation caps that I saw on Jenifer’s blog – but I haven’t made any promises and we will see how it goes:)
Around the house….the carpets are starting to look sad. The vacuum – my new vacuum – is not working well. What is it about me and vacuums?? I have way too many bum vacuums!
Plans for the week….senior banquet this evening, another meeting with the Parent Advisory Board at Children’s, graduation on Friday night and the seniors’ picnic on Saturday. Oh goodness.
One of my favorite things….just yesterday, my sweet friend, Nellie, celebrated her 84th birthday! Several of us took her (and her sweetheart of 63 years) to lunch at Olive Garden….and her face just beamed when they brought out the cake and sang Happy Birthday!! Why can I not ever remember my camera for these things?!?! Her friendship is a blessing.
