If It's Monday . . .
FOR TODAY: It's My Simple Womans Daybook Day
I'ts been a cloudy morning but the sun has finally decided to wake up and give us some sunshine.
I am thankful...
that Dick (my ex) is doing ok. His cardiac defribrillator went off yesterday evening.
In the kitchen...
I baked bread and peeled and sliced cucumbers yesterday. I'll add sour cream to the cukes and have some with my dinner tonight. Yummy!
I am wearing...
shorts, tee shirt and barefoot
I am creating...
still working on creating my Christmas in July list.
I am going...
to change bed linens today and do a good scrub in the bathroom. Yuck!
I am wondering...
if Dorothy's Ruffled Originals is going to give me a refund for the dust ruffle I ordered but they never delivered. What a disappointment.
I am reading...
I just finished "Safe Harbor" by Nicholas Sparks and am going to start "Handyman" by Linda Nichols.
I am hoping...
that Dick has a speedy and complete recovery.
I am looking forward to...
August 10th. The movie "Hope Springs" starring Meryl Streep & Tommy Lee Jones OPENS.
I finally finished washing the vinyl windows in the Florida room. My next project will be painting the shed. It's plastic so I have to figure out if I need a special paint for plastic. Anybody know?
A favorite quote for today...
"It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else". Irma Bombeck
One of my favorite things... hot weather refreshment
This one is called "Skip & Go Naked" and I found it at Susan Branch
These are really delicious and pink like Double bubble gum.
2/3 c. cold beer
2/3 frozen pink lemonade concentrate
1/4 c. vodka
Fill blender 1/2 way with ice. Pour in beer, lemonade & vodka. Blend well & serve. 'Icy pink perfection' is what Susan calls it.' Click on the graphic to download the recipe.
Hand & Foot this evening, CardBingo on Wednesday, hair cut on Thursday & I'll leave for the farm on Friday.
