A Simple Woman's Daybook

From Mama Bear's journal...

FOR TODAY...Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Outside my window...the sun is shinning....there are lots of clouds, though, so it doesn't stay out long....Our Maple tree is shedding the little red seed pods all over the porch and green is showing here and there on the tree...the grass is getting long but we've agreed not to mow  until after Easter so there will be more hiding places for the eggs....the Butterfly Bush looks so healthy....there's been a red bellied Woodpecker on the feeder this morning along with a Purple Finch.....We've thinned the fish population by 6 as we gave relatives some for their pond..

I am thinking...I feel so sluggish after all the sinus and asthma days recently and just seem to get so little done.

I am thankful...that I am fleeing better, not coughing as much

In the kitchen...Someone needs to buy groceries, badly.....I'm eager to get the plants, sitting in the breakfast nook, out on the porch

I am wearing...black pajama pants with a pink thread running though them and a pink T.

I am creating...

 more blocks for the SAL quilt

I am going...nowhere

I am wondering...what to make for dinner

I am reading...Leah's Wake

I am hoping...to clean both baths, dust the Master furniture, vacuum and mop today

I am looking forward to...having a day to spend with my Daughter soon...it has been too long...

I am learning...to let go of what I can't accomplish....I learned to play Mexican Train Dominoes last week and can't wait until I can play again.

Around the house...trees, bushes and vines are blooming

I am pondering...how my children can be the ages they are

A favorite quote for today... "A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words." 
- Sent by Donna Roberts 

One of my favorite things...spending time with friends....I went on retreat for a few days last week....we accomplished much but also laughed and talked a lot...we went here...

A few plans for the rest of the week: The Princess is coming after school today....Grocery shopping tomorrow...Workshop on Friday

From my photo album....

  1. Your grocery cupboard sounds like mine!! Love your blocks.. Ihave been doing mine this week too!

  2. The pictures are beautiful. Mexican train dominoes is one of our family's favorite games! Have a blessed week.

  3. Does your grandaughter go to the biscuit barrel as soon as she comes through the door?

  4. Those photos are gorgeous. I've noticed the grass is getting high enough to mow, and I am glad it's not my job. :-) I get sneezy just walking near freshly cut grass.
