The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY July 20,2009...
Outside my window...It is raining.We finally have relief from the 100+degree weather.

I am thinking...of how this year has just flown by!Before we know it,it'll be Christmas!

I am thankful husbands job.So many people I know are without jobs and I'm thankful that my husband still has his.I'm also thankful for friends and the good times that we have with them.(Pictures below)

From the kitchen... Ham and turkey sandwiches and fruit and cottage cheese.

I am wearing...white t-shirt and gray pajamas

I am creating...signs for our children's prayer revival at church this week.

I am sign team practice tonight.

I am get a new bike soon!I've been wanting one for a while and I found one last night on the internet.It's not exactly what I wanted but this comes close.Look how cute it looks with a basket.

I am hearing...Girls laughing,boys making a club house and video games.The kids had some friends over for a sleep over.

Around the house...I've got laundry to catch up on.

One of my favorite things...Capturing memories on camera.

A few plans for the rest of the week:It'll be a busy one.We've got practice tonight for sign team and then for the small skits we'll do for the children's prayer revival.Tuesday night the youth ensemble will practice a new song for Sunday morning,Wednesday night is reg church service and the start of the children's prayer revival on thru friday.Saturday I hope to have a nice relaxing day with the family.

Friday night,some friends invited us to dinner to celebrate their anniversary.We went to one of my favorite restaurants,PF Changs.Here is the happy couple.And another happy couple.
And another.Ha!Don't know why my husband looks like that in this picture!

These are my favorite!Lettuce wraps.There was 10 of us and we were in a booth so space was tight but it was still fun!
Here's my other favorite,for dessert,we hadBanana spring rolls with coconut and pineapple ice cream! these are soooo good!

My friend had a strawberry cheesecake shooter and also a tiramusu.
We had a great time!Thanks Jess for inviting us to share your special day with you guys.I love y'all and wish you many more happy years of marriage!

Saturday,several of the Sunday school teachers met at the church to go over the skits for the children's revival and to work on our classrooms.It was our Sunday school director? coordinator?

They gave her this beautiful cake.
