Simple Woman's Daybook--June 29, 2010

FOR TODAY June 29, 2010...

Outside my window… my red geraniums are happy and blooming profusely!

I am thinking... how 20 years ago Man of the House and I were anticipating the birth of our first child any day now.

I am thankful that the car accident that almost happened last Friday on our way back from Indiana didn’t quite.

From the learning rooms...nothing in particular today. It’s summertime. :-)

From the kitchen... Man of the House is grilling today.

I am wearing...khaki capris and a denim shirt.

I am creating...nothing at the moment, but I have a couple projects percolating in my brain.

I am going...nowhere today. I ran errands yesterday.

I am reading...The Moffats by Eleanor Estes. So funny!

On my mind…Girl of the House’s acid reflux. We’ve been treating it pretty successfully, but she’s not back to 100% yet.

Noticing that…our lawn is full of magnolia leaves . . . again!

Pondering these words…Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave y…

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety Jig

We are home again and very happy to be home, too! Alas, our trip to New England had to be cancelled because Girl of the House was sick. It seems that acid reflux is her problem and has been a recurring problem for quite awhile. I think it's under control, but we have to watch her diet pretty carefully. Apple cider vinegar before meals also really helps. I'm so glad she is feeling better~she was pretty wretched for quite awhile.

Anyway, we are home from Indiana, and I will show you pictures of that and give you an update (that trip has momentous consequences!) someday, but first I must show you a stop we made on the way to Missouri a few weeks back. Maybe if I show you a landmark first you can guess where we went:

You can't guess, you say? Why, it's the World's Largest Catsup Bottle in Collinsville, IL! It's on the National Register of Historic Places! There's even a website about this unique water tower.

As thrilling as seeing the World's Larges…

Off Again

Tomorrow we are leaving for Indiana and will be gone the entire week, Lord willing. See you then!

Home Again . . . Temporarily

We were supposed to be in New England right now, but Girl of the House was ill. So we are home until Sunday when we leave for Indiana. We may make it to New England later this summer, but nothing is definite yet. We shall see. We did spend a week in Missouri visiting family. A few pictures for your viewing pleasure:

The St. Louis Science Center:

Here's Man of the House finding out how much he weighs on the Moon. No, I did NOT get on that scale!

The author of the Pippi Longstocking books has a rose named after her:
