Simple Woman's Daybook: 15th June

Outside My Window ... the sort of calm, light grey morning that could do anything - sun? cloud? rain? I just checked the forecast. "Showers late. Afternoon clouds. Mild." Sounds as though I should at least be able to dry my laundry.

I am thinking ... I should switch the warm winter duvets over to summer ones.

From the learning rooms ... I need to send a note to playgroup with Cherub asking for different sessions next term. This term she goes for two afternoons; next term I want her to switch to three mornings.

I am thankful ... that I am finally feeling better after struggling through last week with a nasty cold and another asthma flare-up. I think I overdid things, trying to carry on regardless, but thanks to a restful weekend and a course of steroids I'm looking forward to getting back to normal this week.

From the kitchen ... baked potatoes and chilli.

I am wearing ... black and white summer pyjamas.

I am creating ... a pair of socks, abandoned half-finished a couple of months ago. Still procrastinating over making up the cardigan.

I am going ... to ease back into things gradually today and take a long rest while Cherub is at playgroup.

I am reading ... The Catholic Revival in English Literature 1845-1961 by Ian Ker and My Life With the Saints by James Martin, swapping between the two.

I am hoping ... to do some baking in my new oven this week.

I am hearing ... the Tweenies. Yes, it's that early morning TV / blogging time again.

Around the house ... toys and clothes. Sometimes I worry we will become submerged under a mountain of toys and clothes.

One of my favorite things ... a restful weekend.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week ... as quiet a week as possible.

A Picture Thought I Am Sharing ... fairy princess Cherub

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Though steroids are not nice at the time.

What a sweet picture of Cherub.

What a sweet fairy princess - how blessed you are!

I've added a Mr. Linky at Grandmother Wren's to make it easier for the Summer Daybook ladies to find one another.
