The Simple Woman's Daybook - September

Last month I joined Peggy's meme "The Simple Woman's Daybook " for the first time.
I liked the way that answering the questions made me focus on life's little details.
Or as a friend, who lives Pondside, likes to call it "keeping it real".

FOR TODAY..........

Outside my window ....... cows (nothing new there!)
I am thinking.......  about a task I have to do for the next edition of the Quimper Club Journal.
I am thankful ....... that the swelling of my left arm, caused by a wasp sting three days ago, is reacting favourably to the antihistimine that I took.
In the kitchen ....... lunch today - french onion soup, made by the Senior Partner with pain au cereales, made by me.
I am wearing ....... jeans and a pink and white striped T shirt, lambswool slippers
I am creating ....... working with photographs for the above mentioned QCJ
I am wondering ....... if I'll meet the deadline for the QCJ!
I am reading ....... The Honk & Holler Opening Soon - Billie Letts
I am hoping ....... to make inroads into a huge pile of ironing, later today
I am looking forward to ....... a 9 day break in Devon & Cornwall UK. We leave next Friday
I am hearing ....... my cocker spaniel, Ben, snoring quietly as he sleeps by my feet under the desk
Around the house ....... gradually preparing for visitors who will arrive shortly after we return from the UK
I am pondering ....... what to cook for dinner tonight
One of my favorite things ....... walking our dogs through the French countryside
A few plans for the rest of the week ....... go shopping in either Bayeux or Carentan, go to the hairdressers for some pampering, work in the vegetable garden clearing out all the plants that are over, or have gone to seed
Here is a picture for thought that I am sharing .......

Green tomatoes from my garden

Sorry about your sting. This sounds like a fun meme!

Our dog often "talked" in his sleep, and paddled his legs like he was running a race; like Ben, he also sometimes snored :)

I envy you enjoying a holiday in France. As a girl I hitch-hiked round France with two girl friends. Life was less dangerous then.

Welcome to daybook! Hope your wasp sting goes away soon - sounds awful!

Loved reading your daybook, Maggie! If only my thoughts were more interesting.
For example: I'm house cleaning this week. Who wants to hear about cleaning my oven?
