The Simple Woman's Daybook

Peggy hosts this meme each week. Read other Daybooks HERE.

Outside my window...dark. It's after 9:30 Sunday night!

I am thinking...of how much less stressful I feel when I walk into the kitchen after having deep cleaned & organizing it. Less visible clutter makes for a much less cluttered mind!

I am thankful...for the help I've had from the munchkins & Casinodad in cleaning the kitchen.

From the learning rooms...taking a book trip to Europe & Africa to finish up our continent study from this past school year - STILL; going to start refreshing our math skills this week, too

From the kitchen...Casinodad's sister & BIL came for dinner. I made chicken stir-fry, fried rice, & coconut crusted shrimp (I actually just opened the box for those & fried them!)

I am wearing...white T-shirt & pink shorts w/ white flowers (my jammies)

I am creating...a home of peace & simplicity - clean & uncluttered!

I am going...to continue working through the 31 Days to Clean - Having a Martha House the Mary Way. Today I started on the living room.

I am reading...The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen, Wholly Mary by Chris Padgett, & The Imitation of Christ.

I am hoping...relief from this heat wave.

I am hearing...the hum of the refrigerator & air conditioner.

Around the house...I'm still working through 31 Days to Clean - Having a Martha House the Mary Way. I love the reflections & tasks in this ebook.

One of my favorite things...time spent w/ family.

A few plans for the rest of the week...more cleaning, schoolwork, prayer group Wed. evening, library & "Mom Therapy" on Thurs., & just trying to stay cool (heat advisories are already up for tomorrow - high of 92 w/ heat index around 100)

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...This is my kitchen on Sunday afternoon, after spending about 2 1/2 weeks on the 31 Days to Clean - Having a Martha House the Mary Way. The kitchen was to take only eight days, but I took my time & cleaned out everything! I even have extra space in a few cabinets right now!
