A Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY...Thursday, January 16, 2014, 8:30 am

Outside my window...23 degrees and partly cloudy although I did see some sun when I first got up this morning....expected to reach 50.the chickens are out scratching in their pen, for a few days last week when it was so cold, they hibernated inside their A-frame, this week they've actually laid eggs...

I am thinking...about what a busy week its been and how this is my first post

I am thankful...that I can stay home today

In the kitchen...leftover chili and porkchops.......I'm not sure what I'll prepare for dinner today...........I'm thinking of baking some Pumpkin Bread, though.....hmmm, it seems like a casserole kind of day so maybe ham &vegetable casserole?

I am wearing...pajamas and a red robe, cozy socks

I am creating...this blog projects started but I saw a quilt block here that I want to make.....its the Friendship Star

I am catch up on some of my favorite blogs today

I am wondering...where some of you found your January motivation

I am reading...Command book club met last Thursday and chose books for the year...February's book is  Book of Ages.....I'm not sure I'll finish the book I'm reading in time to read this one also, both have lots of pages

I am lose a pound this week

I am looking forward to...each new day and what God holds in store for me

I am learning....always learning

Around the house...Smokey is curled up under a blanket on the sofa......natural light is coming in the windows.....

I am pondering...projects I might start

A favorite quote for today...Feeling a little blue in January is normal.
Marilu Henner 

One of my favorite things...a cup of tea on a winter afternoon

A few plans for the rest of the week:Since this is Thursday and the week is almost over, I'll say: Monday I had a planning meeting for my local Homemakers' Club......Tuesday I had a dentist appointment for a cleaning.......Wednesday I had a planning meeting for the County organization I belong to, then lunch with my and tomorrow I'm staying home and doing some household chores....we have no plans for the weekend except Honey Bear needs a hair cut.

A peek into my day...


  1. I hope you enjoy your day home. I love days home.
    Hugs Kay

  2. I've been searching for some January motivation, myself... It's not my favorite month of the year! Have a great weekend :)

  3. Enjoy your day at home. I started my new position at the church this week and I am wondering why God called me to this ministry. Suppose I will find out eventually.

    God bless.
