The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today Monday 29th June 2009:-

Outside my window the men are putting finishing touches to the electrical workings for the Endless Pool.

I am thinking about my son and his family in New York.

I am thankful for the love of a good man.

From the kitchen I can hear the washing machine telling me it’s finished its cycle.

I am wearing striped trousers, blouse in stripes of shades of blue, Nike trainers.

I am creating too many projects.

I am going to a Hog Roast on Saturday in aid of 'Help for Heroes'.

I am reading ‘The Islamist’ by Ed Husain.

I am hoping for a cool breeze.

I am hearing tennis from Wimbledon on the television.

Around the house the animals are sleeping.

One of my favourite things is the waft of scent from jasmine, honeysuckle and roses in the garden.

A few plans for the rest of the week: hopefully taking the first of regular swims in the Endless Pool; pickling shallots; making marmalade.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing - it's my first-born, Gillian, 'helping' in the garden. She is now married with three children of her own - 15, 13 and 11.

  1. Aww, what a sweet picture. Does Gillian still like to garden?

    I adore the scent of honeysuckle. How blessed you are to be able to smell it in your garden! (Scent is very important to me.)


I appreciate that some people like to give awards but for me your comments are reward enough.
