A Simple Woman's Daybook

From Mama Bear's Journal....
FOR TODAY...Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Happy Valentine's Day....
Outside my window... 41 °F,  (5 °C) cloudy and wet.....

I am thinking...I need to go get my granddaughter who is home sick....she has tonsillitis

I am thankful...for all the Valentine's Days I have spent with my Honey Bear

In the kitchen...Its his off day and we just enjoyed a breakfast of eggs, bacon and biscuits, toast for me, orange juice and coffee............there are cupcakes to frost for the tea party

I am wearing...still in my pjs but changing soon

I am creating...goodies for the Wil's tea party............and I must do the prep for the next blocks of My Favorite Things quilt.....

I am going...to bring my granddaughter over here..........to deliver cupcakes to my grandson later today...

I am wondering...why I haven't been in a creative mood

I am reading...Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati

I am hoping...the Princess feels like going to school tomorrow

I am looking forward to...Celebration Day on Saturday (when clubs are awarded for their hard work last year)..........our visit to the Opryland Hotel next week.

Around the house...there's always plenty to do

I am pondering...how much this holiday has been commercialized....did you happen to see google's little cartoon on their page.....it emphasises that love isn't materialistic....its in the simple things.... 

A favorite quote for today...   “Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”  Robert A. Heinlein 

One of my favorite things...dark chocolate

A few plans for the rest of the week: hair appointment tomorrow, lunch with friend, Celebration Day Saturday

Pay a visit to Peggy if you'd like to participate
or if you'd like to read other daybooks.


  1. Happy Valentine's Day, Mama Bear! I love your quote for the day...and yes, Valentine's Day has become entirely too materialistic!

  2. Hi Mama Bear! What a great way to spend Valentine's Day morning! I haven't been to creative lately either. Could be that I have too many other things pulling me in so many directions...? Hope your granddaughter gets to feeling better soon. I have heard that the OpryLand hotel is beautiful! Take lots of pictures!

  3. Happy Valentine's Day to you! Enjoyed reading through your daybook ... as always! Hope you are weathering our chilly temps!! :)

  4. Liked your daybook, hope your granddaughter feels much better soon.

  5. Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours, my friend!! I do hope your day was a special one.

    Oh dear, your poor granddaughter, tonsillitis is so painful. Prayers that she recovers quickly.

    Misty and Tiffany are very much looking forward to the tea party on Friday:-) xoxo
