A Simple Woman's Daybook




FOR TODAY
Monday May 20, 2017

Outside my window...
the temperature is a little lower than
previous weeks at 68 degrees
and it is partly cloudy...everything
is green... 

I am thinking...
actually wondering if I can
finish this before I have to
rush out the door.. 

A Bible Verse I'm sharing....
"He has made everything beautiful in
its time, He has set eternity in the 
human heart." Ecclesiastes:3:11

I am thankful...
for good health and a happy home

In the kitchen...
fresh fruit and squash from the
garden 

I am wearing...
still wearing my pajamas

I am creating...
anticipating Michelle's book
in the mail so I can start stitching...
also plan to start quilting 
Trip around the World soon...
working on clearing out 'stuff' 

I am going...
to meet friends for lunch and a movie

A Song that stays on my mind...
I am reading...
Product Details

I am hoping...
to finish soon

I am looking forward to...
celebrating Wonder Boy's
Birthday on Saturday
he'll be 19....unbelievable 

I am learning
to be happy in whatever 
time of life I am in 

Around the house...
laundry to switch over...
beds are made...I am tackling 
the studio next 

I am pondering...
how time can pass so quickly

In his Garden....
strawberries are starting to ripen
if the birds don't beat us to them
and squash are ripening 

A favorite quote for today...
"Take Life by the Lapels and 
say, I'm with you, kid. Let's go."
Maya Angelou

One of my favorite things...
 listening to music

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Dentist tomorrow morning
lunch with Daughter on Thursday

Road Trip

Honey Bear and I hit the road on Thursday. Our destination was just a little ways up into Tennessee...we took our leisurely time and drove off the beaten path, no interstate traffic at all but saw towns such as Grinder's Switch, Hohenwald, Centerville, Columbia, and Culleoka. We stayed two nights in a lovely B&B: The Inn at Bigby Creek and visited three nearby wineries:Amber Falls, Keg Springs, and Picker's Creek. We met some lovely and friendly folk who made us feel at home. We walked along the Duck River and visited historic squares where the courthouse sits in the center and streets go around it....coming home yesterday, we were blessed with some rain which was badly needed. Today? Just resting. A good weekend.

Hump Day (Wednesday)

Its been a very busy week so far. I have been working on cleaning my closet for over a month and finally finished today...so, with Honey Bear's help, I loaded up the discards and took them to a thrift store....then I washed my car and vacuumed the inside....that was today. Yesterday I worked on some scrapbook pages and finished up laundry....Monday, I went to Kohl's, Sprout's, Hobby Lobby, and picked up my grocery order at Kroger...Anyone else buying groceries on line?  I find it so convenient to buy staples this way....
Honey Bear has been putting his new green house together....I'll show you the old one and the new one when he is finished...
I have joined another Stitch along and ordered a pattern book by Michele Ridgeway...can't wait to get started....I also want to quilt my Trip around the World quilt...
Later....
