A Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...its cloudy, 76 °F, (24 °C), but is expected to reach 91 today...I can see Finch feeding on the Thistle and lots of pretty red flowers.
Hearing...the washing machine
I am thinking...about all the chores that need to be done before I can create anything
Feeling thankful for...the phone conversations with my son(he's returning to foreign soil today after his R&R).....the fun I had with Daughter and Granddaughter on our annual trip....Honey Bear's garden(we're getting tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, onions and potatoes now)....answered prayers....and God's plan for our lives...the people who have offered to help Daughter move....members of my club who are also my friends(always there to do what is necessary to make projects run smoothly)
I am remembering...seeing the Princess model clothes she was shopping for school clothes at Justice...they were having a 40% off sale
Creating this...(sorry, no pictures) uncluttered house.....presents to send with my Sack....finishing some UFOs and starting July's TTS blocks....
I am currently reading...Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley
One year ago today...It was hot and dry....Honey Bear and I had gone on a tour with our Garden to a sister was planning to visit...we were enjoying fresh veggies from the garden....praying for rain....working on scrapbooks and Gardener's Journal
I am have the house straightened and some laundry done before the end of the hang a few pictures in the guest room and freshen the room for my sister's visit next week.
On my today seems like Monday since its my first day home this week.
Noticing that...'time changes everything, life must go on'......some of the references in this novel I'm reading about the Jacobite uprisings mirrors what I've read in the Garabaldon books.
Pondering these words...'(You) have examined my heart and  know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my every thought when far away. You chart a path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord. You both precede and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to know.' Psalm 139:..1-6
From the kitchen...fresh veggies(see feeling thankful for)....
Around the house...clutter from the weekend and my trip...wondering whether to put my bunting up on the front porch before the weekend..I didn't do it when I put out my patriotic decor earlier this summer.....thinking about what to have for a 4th of July meal..
I am praying for...the closing of Rick's refinance of the house to happen soon so Daughter can close on her house.....praying for a stress free move for her...praying for the grandchildren....praying for son's safe journey  back....
A few plans for the week...finish housekeeping chores...mail package....maybe take the Princess and Wonder Boy out for for a few groceries
One of my favorite things...Spending time with my girls
From my picture file...
This is a mug that my Daughter gave me for my Birthday in May.


  1. And life goes on, doesn't it? I just now unpacked my suitcase--after nearly 2 weeks!

    Sorry to hear that your son has to leave already...and praying that your daughter will get moved and settled soon.

    Fresh veggies are the best, aren't they?

  2. That is a sweet mug. Love your thankful list.

  3. Is the book your reading, Winter Sea, any good? I always love reading other's thoughts on books they've read.
