A Simple Woman's Daybook

From Mama Bear's Journal...
FOR TODAY...Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Outside my window...partly sunny,  70 °F,  (21 °C) with thunder storms predicted for this afternoon....which is the forecast for much of this week it seems with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40-50s.....tornado season is upon us once again....the Bradford Pears are blooming which means my allergies and asthma are reacting...my symptoms have improved but my overall feeling is not well....Smokey sleeping in the sun on his window seat...

I am thinking...being ill makes one weak even when one does not spend the time in bed....Honey Bear says it is because the body is using all its energy to fight off the illness.

I am thankful...that I do not have to get up in the morning and go to a job.....Honey Bear was up at 3:30a.m. this morning because he couldn't rest but still went to work...he'd been off for 4 days so hopefully he'll feel better but I'm not sure he needed to go in...he has never been one to call in sick though.

In the kitchen...its clean and that is about all that can be said for it....the Poinsettia is still thriving with its red leaves....and a few of my flowers from Celebration Day are still fresh after a week.

I am wearing...not pajamas for a change...I've dressed in a pink and crimson velour pant suit...comfy

I am creating...blocks from the SKOW quilt....actually, I've only done the prep work for the next row...traced the stitchery

I am going...nowhere until Thursday and hoping to feel well enough then to go to the Christian Women's Connection luncheon

I am wondering...if I'll feel like going on retreat with my club members on Monday of next week...I'm waffling about it...we're supposed to have a couple of workshops while we're there and I need to be there

I am reading...Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs...it is our March book club pick....I finished "Into the Wilderness" which was over 800 pages and found out there are two sequels...

I am hoping...March starts off calmly...

I am looking forward to...feeling myself again

Around the house...laundry is being done....

A favorite quote for today... A word spoken in due season, how good it is! —Proverbs 15:23 

One of my favorite things...a clean house

A few plans for the rest of the week :CWC luncheon on Thursday (a fashion show).....Book Club on Friday in a nearby town

From my photo album....

just one of many photos from our little
get-away at the Opryland Hotel....
We had a wonderful time...

  1. Your photo is really nice. It is raining here as well although it is warm. Some of our trees are starting to bud out and I have itchy watery eyes as a result. I guess Spring is close at hand. Have a great day.

  2. My husband rarely calls in sick, either. But I have been very glad not to have to get up and go to work in the mornings and to be able to adjust my schedule to whatever is going on.

    Sure hope you feel better soon.

  3. I hope you start to feel better so you can enjoy the week. Allergy season is no fun. Maybe the rain will help clear the air a bit.

    God bless, have a lovely week.

  4. I do hope you feel better soon! Sickness has invaded my daughter's house, she's sick with something that may be the flu...and my granddaughter is sick as well. Sigh.

  5. Sending light and love your way that you'll feel well again very soon!

  6. Prayers continue for you, and your honey bear.
