A Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY
Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Outside my window...
58 degrees with 83% humidity, expecting
a high today of 70...a little cooler since the
weekend rain...the sun is shinning and it still
looks very green out there...the Impatiens I
planted are blooming and spreading...alas, 
the Caladiums never came up...

I am thinking...
I should get up and shower so 
I can get my day going...

I am thankful...
for my sweet Honey Bear who just
now brought in some roses from the yard
for a vase in the kitchen...

In the kitchen...
Some leftover taco meat... lettuce and 
strawberries from the garden...

I am creating
ideas for cards...want to ...make a couple
of graduation cards...

I am going...
to renew my Driver's Licence, to Publix,
and maybe a few other stops
before my appointment with the spine doctor
this afternoon...

I am wondering...
if I've recovered from the stomach virus I had
over the weekend...

A Song that stays on my mind...
Forever Young by Rod Stewart


I am reading...
The Clearing: A Strong Woman in the Middle Ages (A Medieval Tale Book 2) by [Potter, Lina J.]

I am hoping...
To have a productive day...

I am looking forward to...
Our vacation next month...

Around the house...
its cleaning day...

Outside my window...
Green, and more green! I see Squirrels
scampering, birds flitting, chickens scratching
and sun shinning...62 degrees and
expecting a high of 85

I am thinking...
about doing this and that...I've often
said that if I did all I think about, I
would accomplish a lot...

I am thankful...
for a peaceful home and a loving husband...

In the kitchen...
one slice of the Birthday cake of
which I have eaten way too much...
Strawberries from the garden and no leftovers

I am wearing...pajamas

I am creating...
trying to finish up the HHC,
needing to start some needlework

I am going...
to stay home today and wait on
the man from Precision Door..
our garage door finally called it
quits..

I am wondering...
if we'll ever have a day without pollen...

I am reading...
People of the Abyss by Jack London..
been reading some classics lately

I am hoping...
to do a couple of loads of laundry and
trace off an embroidery for daughter among
other things..

I am looking forward to...
a few days at home...some
weeks, it seems I have to go somewhere
every day, and it is nice to spend time at home
occasionally

I am learning
what 70 feels like...

Around the house...
mostly tidy, waiting for the housekeeper to
clean...

I am pondering...
the way the world has changed since I was
a teenager..

A favorite quote for today...
"We read to know we're not alone."
C.S. Lewis

One of my favorite things...
clean linens on the bed

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Women's Club meeting Thursday night
Workshop on Friday

Saturday Scribbles

Hello Everyone,
I seem to have lost the last 3 months...where does time go...seems the older I get, the quicker it goes by...
I think about you often and sometimes I lurk and read your posts without commenting.

I have been doing some sewing, some sorting and discarding....mostly back therapy has taken much of my time...

Spring has come to North Alabama and with it the pollen....Everything outside my window is green with blooms scattered here and there....

We have chickens again and they are a joy to watch...I began chatting with them when they were still little so they would get used to my voice...now whenever I go out to see them, they come running to me, chattering away...wonder what they're saying...There are 6 hens and they are 11 weeks old.

My grands have all grown up when I wasn't looking...they are 25, 23, 21, 19, and 18....The youngest graduates high school next month....3 are in college, Georgia Southern, South Carolina, and Auburn...

I've never watched Basketball but this year I've become a fan as the Auburn team has gone to the play-offs for the first time in 30 years...they're all the way to the final 4, playing Virginia today....War Eagle.
They won the SEC title as did Auburn's Equestrian team....I've followed the Gymnastics which I love watching.

Daybook

Today is the last day of the year. Weather is weird, the temperature is in the 60s and it is very windy. Storms are on the way.

Honey Bear went back to work today. First his client was in hospital and then in rehabilitation. He came home on Christmas Day and this is Honey Bear's first day to work although he visited Dennis in hospital and nursing home. We have spent a great deal of time together and this is the first morning I've had the house to myself. I'm enjoying it. I did a little tidying in the studio, put away boxes and bags and trash. But first I slept until 8:00 a.m. which is very unusual for me.

We had a guest over the past week. Wonder Boy came on Christmas Eve and stayed until Saturday afternoon. We didn't see much of him as he prefers to stay in his room, sleeping during the day and being up and on his computer during the night. He has gone back to Auburn although school is out for another week, I believe. He is living in an apartment so he has that option.

Both Honey Bear and I have been on a eating plan since the second week of October. He fasts some and usually doesn't eat until after 2:00. I still eat 3 meals most days but have cut out most carbs and sweets and do not eat except at meals. We're eating lots of veggies and protein. He has lost 22 pounds while I've only lost 11. Part of that is because I haven't been active enough. I finally had an MRI of  my spine and it is in a mess. The surgeon doesn't want to do surgery because of my breathing problems so he's trying other solutions starting with therapy.

I haven't really thought about goals or hopes for 2019. Looking back on this year, I was not in the best of health and haven't really accomplished that much. One thing I plan to do is get my studio in order so that maybe I'll have a desire to  work in there again.

Okay, I need to get up and move and Smokey is sitting here beside me, nudging my hand to try and get me to feed him lunch, so this will be it for this post. I hope to be back soon.

Outside my window...
It is cloudy and 74 degrees with 94% humidity
I can see the Hummingbird feeder
and once in a while a tiny bird flits to it and away
It will not be long now until they leave for 
warmer climates so 
they're trying to fill up on nectar for their journey
I am thinking...
I should be up and dressed and gone but yet
here I sit.
A Bible Verse I'm sharing....
For everything there is a season, a time for
every activity under heaven...Eccles 3:1
  I am thankful...
the recent CT of my lung showed the
infection has cleared up after
4 months of treatment...
In the kitchen...
I made spaghetti and slaw last night so
we'll have leftovers today
I am wearing...
pajamas and a robe
I am creating...
nothing, my creative muse has
left the building...
a song that stays on my mind...

I am reading...
Jo Nesbo's
Snowman
I am hoping...
to finish this soon so I can
go have my nails done
I am looking forward to...
Cultural Arts Day on Thursday
State Conference next week
In his Garden....
things have slowed down now, still
getting a pod of okra now and then
or a bell pepper but its getting time
to lay it by
