Good afternoon!
It's Monday again and time for My Day Book!

Outside my Window... sunshine and shadow making the leaves glimmer beautifully in the breeze. Our office is on the second floor; so, I have a tree level view. I love being able to look out the back window and see my kids playing. Right now they're swimming at the Y.

I am thinking... I have to declutter, declutter, declutter to get ready for yard sale #2. This one will be at my friend's house. I'm trying to make money for math books and a candle holder I saw that I really like. It's only $5; but, I don't have it to spend right now.

I am thankful for... getting the rent paid this month.

From the kitchen... It's pizza night.

I am creating... ideas for my first craft fair in October. See my shop for a sampling of my products.

I am going... to pick up my children at the Y after I pop the pizza in the oven in a few minutes.

I am wearing... pants! I am a dresses girl almost all the time. Every once in awhile I just want to feel comfy in my old knit pants and a t-shirt. That's today! (BLUSHING)

I am reading... Westering Women. It's about women's preconceived ideas, experiences, and such during the pioneering/frontiering days. It's interesting; but a slow read. It reminds me of a college textbook style of writing. Perhaps it was the author's dissertation!

I am hoping... to sell a lot at Friday's yard sale.

I am hearing... music from my blog playing. I just love it.

Around the house... Hubby is "on break" and is listening for the news update.

One of my favorite things... pumpkin spice candles.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... yard sale prep, lesson plan prep, laundry, baking for the yard sale, doing the sale with my friends.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
Read the best books first or you may not have time to read them at all.

Happy at Home

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.
