The Simple Woman's Daybook # 1

For Today...

Outside my Window...the sky is full of puffy clouds and the sun is shining - a beautiful start to a new day.

I am thinking...I'd really like to be outside taking photographs of nature.

I am thankful family in general. Specifically today for my son's help over the weekend with some household tasks over the weekend and my daughter & son-in-law's willingness to come and join me to make more comfortable a situation out of my comfort zone.

From the kitchen...whatever Rocky's cooking! I am thinking of doing some baking this evening though.

I am favorite jeans, a light blue shirt with some beading, silver and blue jewelry and black sandals.

I am reading...The Complete C.S. Lewis - the first book in the compilation is Mere Christianity. It is very thought provoking.

I am hoping...for everything from a buyer for some tires/wheels my husband is selling, to a vacation, to a job for my husband that he enjoys, to bright, healthy, happy futures for my grandbabies.

I am hearing...the weather on the radio followed by country music.

I am creating...a plan (be afraid, be very afraid).

Around the house...the dog is pouting because she can't leave and go with me (she loves to ride in the truck), the curling iron is turned off, the cell phone is turned on and , undoubtedly, the weeds in the garden are growing.

One of my favorite chocolate - enough said.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...I hope to get the onions pulled and started drying and to get some more of the garden weeded. I also hope to get some more reading done and to help with finishing the remodeling we are doing in our basement. On Wednesday I plan to meet with some girlfriends to pray for our husbands and various other things and then go to Panera for dinner-yeah! On Thursday I will be at my least favorite place, the hospital, while hubby has some surgery.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

of some very large crows hanging out in our woods.
