Simple Woman's Daybook: 11th August

For Monday 11th August

Outside My Window
... neatly trimmed hedges and a netball practice hoop fixed to the wall, thanks to yesterday's hard work by Tevye and my brother.

I am thinking ... how much I will miss Angel. She is leaving this morning for a Christian camp week.

I am thankful for ... family and friends.

From the kitchen ... fish to fry. I bought some premium cod fillets for less than half price, a luxury as these are normally out of my price range except for special occasions. We will eat half today, and I'll freeze the rest for Yom Kippur. Cold fried fish to break his fast is a tradition for Tevye.

I am wearing ... black jeans, black and white striped t-shirt and bare feet.

I am creating ... a Google Page with a picture book list for the liturgical year. I've been working on the list for myself and thought I may as well share it. I have various knitting projects to do, but I can't get into them. I've come to the conclusion that I am a seasonal knitter. Winter is the time for curling up and working on something warm and woolly, not summer!

I am going ... to run errands in town. Library, optician, and shoe shop. I also need to pick up a few oddments for Star's birthday and our camping trip at the end of the week, and buy a pump attachment to inflate the netball that goes with the hoop.

I am reading ... not much. I seem to be in a fallow reading period. I've started a few things over the past couple of months but never finished them.

I am hoping ... the library will find a book I think I returned that is still showing up on my ticket. Ugh!

I am hearing ... Angel humming, Star typing and Little Cherub talking to her toys.

Around the house ... bags and sleeping bags.

One of my favorite things ... nature study. I'm going to really enjoy doing the 100 Species Challenge.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week ... an ice skating trip for Star's tenth birthday and a couple of nights camping with Star, Little Cherub, K-next-door and A-next-door. Tevye and K's husband are determined non-campers, so we decided on a girls only trip. And we will be watching the Olympics.

Here is picture thought I am sharing ...

What a lovely photo!
I'm not reading much either - Emma failed to captivate me.

Oh my goodness your girls are getting so big. I hardly recognize them!

I am a seasonal knitter too. I cannot knit in the summer but in the winter yes indeed.

Thank you for sharing your daybook! Sweet photo - we just love Carousels!

I love your Tolkien quotes! (although I know this has nothing to do with the Simple Woman's Daybook!)

Yes, while I don't knit I think of it as an Autumn/winter craft.

Cod - I *love* Cod, but I don't think I'd eat it cold to break a fast! A nice steak or burger for me.

I loved the "I am hearing" one today. How sweet.
