Daybook Entry

In the great outdoors…This has been the best summer. I love sitting outside and I’ve been able to do a lot of it this summer. This morning we woke up to rain, thinder, and lightening, but then it cleared off to be a beautiful day.

Within our walls…Today I worked on our school schedule and my work schedule for the next few weeks. I think we’re ready to get back into a routine.
A heart of thanksgiving…. There was an incident at cousins camp that was much more serious than we knew at the time, and we are all very thankful that no one was hurt. While playing in the lake the kids all felt a tingling feeling in their hands, and later in their feet and legs. We thought it was weird at first and then got worried, so we got them out. Turns out, there was an electrical current in the lake where we were. It could have been a tragic situation, thankful that no one was injured.
A heart of prayer…School is starting soon, teachers are already in their rooms preparing for another year. I’m praying for them and their students.
Random observations…44 is old! And I should know.

My silly children…On the way to cousins camp we listened to an 80’s and 90’s Christian cd. It took me back in time, but the kids abruptly returned me to the present time by assaulting the lyrics. It was like Weird Al had taken over Christian music. I hope they still get to go to heaven.
Thoughts from the kitchen…Chicken and dumplings tonight! Anna rolled out the dumplings, she loves to do anything that has to do with dough.
What I’m reading…I’ve read a couple of books lately. I don’t know their titles, but they’ve held my attention.
Sounds of the moment…I’m sitting outside with a cold coke, my Kindle, IPad, and listening to the kids play in the pool. Perfect summer day.
What I’m wearing…Khaki shorts, black striped henly, flip flops (because I’m outside). My go to shoe this summer has been my zebra striped Sanuks. I wear them to work and they are so comfortable. They’re my new favorite shoe.
A favorite thing from last week…

This was pure sweetness. At the pool I was laying in a chair, and Henry came up to me wet, with floaties on and laid on my dry body. It was the sweetest few moments. He didn’t say anything, he just needed a little Juju time.

On the calendar..The calendar is getting full. I like a full calendar!
My favorite picture…

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
