The week in review


Outside my's a bright sunny day. A little humid.

I am much I'm going to miss Madison this week. She is off to camp. I know how much fun she will have though. I remember how much I loved camp.

I am thankful for...Scott. He is such a great dad and husband. Hard working and loves us so much.

From the kitchen...Chocolate Cake from Father's Day.

I am creating...a new wreath for my front door. With the new paint job on the door we needed a new wreath with color.

I am where today. Just to drop Madison off. Mom is coming over to hang out and watch an old classic movie...Anastasia with me.

I'am wearing.... blue jean capris and white Old Navy tank and yes I'm barefoot.

I am reading...cook books from the library this week....finding new recipes.

I am colonoscopy goes well tomorrow...keep me in your prayers.

Around the house...well the house is clean...2 loads of laundry to do. Madison's room will be empty yet sad.....we have some weeding in the garden to do.

One of my favorite things...laying in the sun with a new People magazine.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The colonoscopy, a movie with Miller and a picnic at the park, a trip to some furniture stores for a new couch, a nail appointment and a run to the local Farmers Market.

My picture thought of the week... how refreshing this is.....yummy!

For more wonderful day books....please go check out Peggy @ The Simple Woman......she is great. Join me...I love doing this and reading about everyone's every day life.

I enjoyed reading your daybook entry. Your lemonade looks yummy. I've recently started to make mine from scratch too. The glass container is so pretty.

I'll pray that all goes well with your colonoscopy.

I'll pray for you, my favorite blue blog! I know it's sad when those bedroom's are empty. I pray your quiet week is profitable and edifying.

Blessings to you. Hope you'll be ok tomorrow.

Karen said...

I will definitely pray for you for tomorrow. I've got one scheduled next month. I'll bet Madison is going to have a great time this week! Don't you wish they had a summer camp for moms?

I put up my Daybook, too. Thanks for getting me into this. It's lotsa fun:)

Fresh lemonade does look good. We don't have the humidity but the dry heat is killer and a nice cup of lemonade goes down really well on a hot day. :)

I pray your colonoscopy goes well too.

Jennifer said...

Love the lemonade picture! Enjoyed reading your daybook and seeing your blog. Thanks for sharing!

I have a colonoscopy scheduled this month also. I will think of you as you have it done and pray for positive results. This will be my first and I am trying not to be concerned about it.
I am so happy for you that you have your Mother to spend time with.
Camp is such a great experience for children. I remember when I took my daughter there and left her. Giving them wings is sometimes hard on us Moms.

I will pray for your test to go well. I just got my pap the other day and he was like have you ever had an abnormal pap, then he said not that anything looks abnormal. Gee that sounds great. Anyway I will pray you get good results.

Thanks so much for the recipes. The oreo cookie one is one of the first I am going to try. Of course I would make a dessert first.

I hope Madison has a great time but I know how much you will miss her. She will be home, with awesome camp stories before you know it.

I so enjoy these Jen! I hope your daughter has a great time at camp, I know you guys will miss her. I want to see a picture of the new wreath too - my front door needs some inspiration!

Hope the colonoscopy goes well. I will be thinking of you and praying for you. I haven't had to have one yet, but I am sure the day is coming. My surgeon said my colon is covered with the endo that is eating me up inside. Blech. I've heard that actually drinking all of the liquid is the worst, so hang in there.

Eat some chocolate cake for me, and share some good recipes if you find them and try them!

Have a glorious week!

I'll be praying for you!

Curling up to watch an old movie sounds wonderful. I think I'll probably end up doing the same thing!


Sandra said...

Loved reading yours Jen. I didn't know about the colonoscopy, I've said a prayer for you and will continue to do so :)

Oh how I'd love some chocolate cake... and that lemonade!! Hope your appt tomorrow goes well!


Sgt and Mrs Hub said...

Blast! For some reason I just can not remember this Monday posting! I'd love to do it one of these weeks, if I EVER remember!

Glory girl! You WILL have my prayers for tomorrow. I hope it all goes quickly and smoothly.

We need to be neighbors... our boys would have so much fun together!


Susan said...

Hi! Hoping your appointment goes well. That lemonade looks so refreshing and summery!

I posted my first daybook on June 16.


gail@more than a song said...

Hope Madison has fun this week...hope your appointment goes well too! Keep us posted.

Chappyswife said...

Oh, I was going to do this and forgot! I may do it later today.

I pray your colonoscopy goes well and turns out perfectly. I pray Madison is safe, healthy, and having a great time.

Keep us posted, Jen.
