A Simple Woman's Daybook Entry

Outside My Window...

It's drippy wet.  It rained all night.  It's always cozy to crawl into bed and listen to the thunder~
if it's in the distance!

I am thinking...

It's going to be a long long week with my honey working in Kansas City. 

I am thankful for...

having my three little ones at home with me to teach and love. 

From the learning rooms...
We just finished Story of the World Middle Ages by Susan Wise Bauer.  It was a great overview of the middle ages.  I'll be looking over my shelves for the next history read aloud book.

From the kitchen...

I'll be keeping things simple.  That's always best on Mondays.  
Cereal for breakfast, PBJ for lunch, dinner to be announced.

I am wearing...

my springy peach flowered knit dress.  My feet are still in my lavendar slippers.
My hair is down.  Only my wedding ring and my promise ring for jewelry.
I am creating...

I don't have any projects going right now.  I am looking forward to starting a new patchwork apron this week.

I am going...

to stay home all week. 

I am reading...

The book of Exodus
The Story of the Bible by Larry Stone.

I am hearing...

the hum of the computer, traffic in the distance, and the clicking of my mantle clock. 

On my mind...

thoughts of how to get it all done this week. 

Around the house...

laundry and general tidying to do after the weekend.

One of my favorite things...

Zoe, my daughter's cat, loves to cuddle and nuzzle her little nose and face against me. 

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:

Begin my apron
Guests on Wednesday
Make shamrocks with my little ones
Begin a new read aloud
Special plans on Friday night. 

Small window into my life...

May I suggest?
I'd Like to...


  1. Is your grass green already? Nice post, can't wait to hear more about the patchwork apron? How's the rosemary doing?

  2. Hi fun to get to come over and visit. Now that I am off work I have a little extra time. Wish I had it all the time. I so love coming and visiting.

    Thank you for signing up for the party!
    Hugs, Linda

  3. What a sweet sweet window to peek into~

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
