A Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...it is a rainy day 44 °F(7 °C)...the birds don't seem to mind...tonight the rain is supposed to change to snow....there is a gust of wind once in a while that I hear through the fireplace.
Hearing...the heater come on although it is still set at 66 from last night..I haven't been chilly enough to turn it up yet....it is always pretty quite here at my house..I live near the end of my cul-de-sac, only the 4th house up...we don't get much traffic other than homeowners and visitors...the mail and other deliveries
I am thinking...that it is time to think about some lunch...the diet is going well, although it seems I see pictures of food everywhere: magazines and TV....this is the fourth week and I've had no chocolate or sweets of any kind...but that isn't what I long for...I want a loaded baked potato or a cheeseburger..oh well, I've promised myself a cheeseburger when I've lost 15 pounds so that is several weeks into the future, possibly Spring..
Feeling thankful for...memories: that I took the time to write in my journal all these years...I can go back and read about time spent with my precious Mother and Daddy...Sunday was Daddy's Birthday, he would have been 85 years old...
I am remembering...Last night, I picked up the Princess and Wonder Boy and we went out for dinner then came back here and played Trivial Pursuit on the Wii
Creating this...I cut the backing and batting for Gardener's Journal...organizing my plastic ware cabinet...planning a vacation with Honey Bear
I am currently reading...finished South of Broad this morning... Eve...thinking of downloading something to the Kindle
One year ago today...much the same as today: trying to get healthy (thanks for all your support)...trying to get through winter...planning for the future
I am hoping...the sun shines tomorrow but it isn't forecast to do so...I do not really want any more snow either..I live in the South where snow is supposed to be a rare thing...I'm hoping to spend some quality time with Daughter this week...its been a while since we've had time alone...
On my mind...what do you think? see what I'm thinking about.
Noticing that...January is about over.....
Just saw the Red Bellied Woodpecker on the feeder.
Pondering these words..."Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder"
From the kitchen...Left over rice, broccoli and fish for dinner tonight...the Weight Watchers Muffins I mentioned last week weren't homemade...thinking about making some vegetable soup this weekend
Around the house....laundry to sort and start...need to schedule a carpet cleaning.
I am praying for...My son, Rene's Dad, Carol's upcoming surgery, Gail's Dad, Daughter & Husband, Honey Bear, 
A few plans for the week...Not much going on with me this week...I should have gone to Memphis with Honey Bear...Spend Friday with Daughter, hopefully....groceries one day
One of my favorite things...Spending time with the "grands"
From my picture file

Here is another Bench in the snow for you, Paulie!


  1. Hello girl....... Your day book sounds a lot like mine...... I think we all need summer to get here... My house is so very quiet also as we are in the country and there is never much traffic.... I am MUCH better tonight. I was beginning to get a bit worried that they did not diagnosis me right....BUT HE is faithful and I am getting stronger...... Tomorrow I start my walking again..No more excuses... I think it is going to be in the 50's the next few days.......sooooooooo out I go...... Take care my friend ..... Life is good......

  2. What a wonderful daybook. I agree spending times with the grandkids is one of my favorite things to do too. Hugs

  3. I almost missed it! I have got to get your new link fixed on my blog so I don't forget to go. The bench is marvelous and the snow an added bonus. . . especially since we have had no snow in Vancouver this year. sigh
