The Simple Woman’s Daybook Monday Post

FOR June 29, 2009

Outside my window is summer, finally!

I am thinking that Michael Jackson was a great dancer!  I liked his earlier looks.
I am thankful for the time that I have to read my Globe & Mail.

From the kitchen comes my husband’s summer  barbeque suppers.

I am wearing my favourite blue Columbia skorts to be comfortable in the car trip to Montreal!

I am creating my paperbag swap partner’s project and hoping to pick up something to go with it from the big city of Montreal.

I am going crazy with worry about my son, who just broke up with his girlfriend.

I am reading many things…biography of Joyce Carol Oates, Continuity Girl by Leah McLaren…just to start.  Oh and Lisey’s Story by Stephen King (I can’t get into it and am getting ready to chuck it in)

I am hoping that my son gets through his heartache…..

I am hearing a ringing in my ears…too much thinking.

Around the house is all the baggage, waiting to be put into the car for the trip.

One of my favorite things…lately is playing Sudoku…I think that I need this much needed break from everything! And I just found out about Kenken and mathkudo…from a girl who hated math and was terrible at math.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I am heading off to Montreal today, for the next few days I will be helping my oldest son move into an apartment.  I am also going to be staying longer than planned due to his phone call last night to say that his girlfriend just broke up with him :(….I will be able to do a little shopping, maybe a fabric store and for sure a bookstore.

I can’t get any pictures off my camera :(…I can’t find the driver CD :(…so, pictures are on hold for awhile.
