A Simple Woman's Daybook

From Mama Bear's Journal
Outside my window...Sunny, 62 °F, (17 °C), with a few clouds...expected to reach 92 this afternoon...I think it would be cool enough to walk outdoors if I wasn't so busy....the flowers all have that 'end of summer' straggly appearance....I see the feeder is empty once again (I fill it about 3 times a week)....Smokey is lying in the window seat I moved from the studio....the grass is looking so dry....we need a good rain..
Hearing...the AC still chugging along...a few clocks...
I am thinking...I probably will not get this post finished before I have to leave for Bible Study
Feeling thankful for...the time I spent in the studio yesterday...I have glued the inside cover on the journal, next is sewing in the signatures.....safe travel for Honey Bear yesterday....changing seasons---Fall come quickly...Football season starts Saturday....AC...our health...God's provision...answered prayer
I am remembering..the Board meeting yesterday and how difficult it was to take minutes, I was so stress that when I got home, I was exhausted....the time spent with Daughter going to and from the meeting....
Creating this...9 patch blocks...the Journal....finishing up some projects...
I am currently reading...To Kill a Mockingbird
One year ago today...it was beginning to cool off some...Fall was in the air....I was reading Burn by Nevada Barr...working on items for the Cultural Arts competition
I am hoping...to finish up some ufos
On my mind...the time my stove delivery will be...they asked for a window from 1-4 today.
Noticing that....we have a great group of ladies, all ages, all stages of life in our Bible Study....I'm back now.
Pondering these words..."Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart."
Psalm 37:3-5
From the kitchen...I just finished eating some leftover Ham & Spinach Quiche with a pear....
Around the house...still moving things back from before the carpet cleaning.....washing dishes and have the iron set up to press some stitches and iron two pairs of capris
I am praying for...Honey Bear, Paulie having eye surgery today, Valarie's husband, Jill's Daughter and safe travel for them tomorrow, my children and grandchildren, the prayer requests from this morning's class.
A few plans for the week...Something every day: Spend time with the Princess this afternoon, Hair appointment tomorrow, County Council meeting on Thursday, Book Club and lunch with Daughter on Friday, Grocery shopping somewhere in there and a couple of loads of laundry, cut the Okra and water the flowers.
One of my favorite things...College Football
From my picture file...


  1. Have you read To Kill a Mockingbird before? It's excellent.

    That's a pretty flower!

  2. Would never have guessed you to be a college football person...... neither me or Dennis watch football, college or pro.. We are baseball people and looking forward to the world series...

    We are going to get a nice cool down this weekend and I am sooooooooooo looking forward to fall... This summer needs to go away........ I love summer but this has been over the top.. AND AND
    YES it would be nice to be closer to you..... I am still waiting on the Lord to send me a friend.. I think HE must be waiting for just the right person..... but I am patient....

    Have a wonderful rest of the week girl.....

  3. Just stopping by to catch up. Sounds like a busy week for you!

    I hope by now, your stove has been delivered, and you've tried it out!

    I love the photo of the yellow hibiscus. They're one of my favorite flowers.

    Have a great week :)

  4. My word - you are a busy bee! Have a good week!

  5. That quiche and pear sounds great!!! Thank you so much for your prayers.
