This is a little prompt I was directed to from this site: The Simple Woman’s Daybook
For Today – July 8th, 2009
Outside my window… are grey clouds and light breezes. And the four beautiful new trees standing in the ground.
I am thinking… I’m glad to be catching up on a few projects.
From the learning rooms…the house is quiet two girls asleep and John still at work.
I am thankful for… the peace that I have back today.
From the kitchen… I think we are having something with leftover turkey for dinner.
I am wearing… Comfy dark blue cargo capris and a pink old navy shirt. i am a little bit of a slouch today but I sure am comfortable.
I am reading… nothing right now.
I am hoping… to get one more chore done today and some scrapbooking time.
I am creating… lots of pages for challenges.
I am praying… for my husband and family always.
Around the house… we are finally pulling it all together. The basement still needs some organization but without shelving it may have to wait.
One of my favorite things… in my new home is my new scrapping table.
A few plans for the rest of the week… Clean up the floors, get ready for a training on Saturday, get our bed put back together, and have many people run through to do all sorts of minor repairs.
Need I say more Miss. Sara did it! We were a little doubtful to be honest. We were not sure when we started if she would ever find her balance. Fitting her long legs for a bike just was not that easy either. But July 2nd she did it, she was flying. Now stopping safely, speed control, and starting are next on the agenda!
Today I posted my last class! It has been so much fun! I have loved the organizing, the writing and creating, and the chatter as classes came out and questions and comments were batted around. I do love to teach!
The weather here has been amazing mid to high 70’s with not too much humidity. Who knew the summer could be so sweet I think we are just getting blessed with a good summer since winter was soooo hard this year.
Get it scrapped is winding up the summer with several classes running through July and then August is off. I hope I will be teaching again in the fall, we’ll see. Color Theory and some classes for younger participants are on the list of possibilities.
Hope all of my family and friends are doing well. I know the Weaver clan and add ons are all meeting in San Diego in about two weeks woo hoo! Can’t wait! Lots of hugging and laughing to come. As mom would say better get my neck ready!
Here is my latest creation. I love how the collage of photos turned out on this one. Besides it is so fun of Sara showing off her new monkey bar skills.
We are sitting enjoying tornado like winds and rain again today. With the heat index at 105 it is a killer of a day!
Well my class is flying along with 2 lessons down and 4 to go. Here is a layout from my class #2 with hand drawn title and doodled embellishments. The photos are from a huge stack taken last summer at my brother’s beautiful wedding. I have been pleased with how the whole stack has been turning out.
Not much planned for the weekend but the week has been busy with extra fun activities with the girls. We have done a trip to the zoo, art classes Tuesday and Thursday, a water fun play day and lunch with new friends from the Y, and a bid day today with library and pool time. I have to say I was pretty proud when my baby Lori passed her swimming test to be able to go down the big slide today. She was the smallest one running up those steps to slide down! And she could have done it all day! Even a little boy asked “Hey did she get a green wrist band?” “Yep.” “Wow, that’s amazing!” I am so proud of her. She had to swim a full lap doing any stroke and tread water for a full minute. Go Lori!
