My Daybook June 1, 2015

Read other Daybooks.
FOR TODAY June 1st...

Outside My Window... 
green grass, blue sky, still air, 58°
That's unseasonably cool and wonderful in SW Missouri in June.

I am thinking...
I want to make time for sewing.

I am thankful for...
a faithful husband for 29 years and counting.

From the kitchen...
I'm going to make a batch of my Trim Healthy Mama Shrinker this morning. I also need to make another batch of sweet tea for the family. Leftovers for lunch and a salad for me.

I am wearing...
my tan skirt and a navy short sleeve knit shirt, and my black Crocs. I feel like I may need a sweater to continue sitting by this open window!

I am creating...
a plan to help my kids finish the school year.  It looks like summer school for us this year.

I am going...
to take my husband to work...
to pick my son up from work...
to pick my husband up from work...
to my Beauty by the Book class tonight.

I am reading...
 Trim Healthy Mama.

I am hoping...
that the cool weather continues.

I am hearing...
birds, a lawn mower, traffic on the highway, my daughter singing in the kitchen. Actually, by the time I finished writing this, she was quiet again. ~smile~ My children will break out in singing and Disney movie quoting at any moment.

Around the house...
it's quiet except the click of the keys as I type. My husband and son are at work, my elder daughter is sleeping in, my younger daughter is reading.

One of my favorite things...
the first M & M.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
Catching up on school paperwork... school with the kids... cleaning... sewing... cleaning... driving everyone everywhere... and decluttering. I'm having second thoughts about the sale.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
Thank you Judith!
The beautiful Lilla Rose Flexi Clip I won from Judith Knowles at Whole Hearted Home.
