• Starting out 2016

    As I’m looking at the start of 2016, and the ending of 2015 (ok all of 2015) I just realize more and more how truly blessed I am.  I was looking through pictures to share, going back a few months trying to find some non-snow pictures, and looking at them reminds me of my many blessings. First of course is my family.  I truly don’t know what I did to deserve the family the Lord gave me, but I am blessed He did.  My husband is truly the perfect fit for me, and my children are just such a blessing to have around.  I know in this coming year there…

      FOR Sunday November 22nd   Outside my window…Dark, but clear and nice.  Earlier today it was sunny and somewhat warm around 40.  It was very nice   I am thinking…About upcoming Thanksgiving day.  We have plans to go to my parents house, but there is a possible snow storm coming in on Wednesday into Thursday which could derail our plans.  🙁   I am thankful…For so many things, a wonderful husband who works hard to provide for us, 2 beautiful children that love the Lord and others, a mom and sister who love to spend time together having fun and just being silly sometimes.  The list could go on…

      FOR Sunday October 11th   Outside my window…Blue skies but very windy.  We are in a wind advisory right now, and we have all the windows closed so we don’t get tons of dust and dirt.  I really don’t like that, I like my windows open.  Hopefully tomorrow. I am thankful…For how blessed I am that I can go meet Paul on his lunch break any day I want.  I’m so blessed to be a stay at home, work at home mom and wife. In the kitchen…Ham and potato soup, pasta bake, pizza, tamales, apple crisp and meatball soup.   I am wearing…Purple cotton capris and a gray shirt. …

  • Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ 8/23

      FOR Sunday August 23rd Outside my window…Almost blue, clear skies, meaning the smoke is starting to clear.  We have fires all around us.  Nothing that is close enough to cause us any problems, other than the smoke.  We are in a bit of a bowl and when there are fires all around us, the smoke tends to settle around us.  It’s been pretty bad lately, but it’s looking clearer today.  For that I am thoroughly blessed. I am thinking…That I can’t believe school has already started.  We’ve had our first full week of school, and it’s gone great.  Paulie only has a couple of courses, so it makes the…

      FOR Sunday August 16   Outside my window…It would be blue skies, but it’s more like smokey blue skies.  We have fires all around us here in Idaho.  Nothing close enough to cause us any problems but the smoke is now coming around us.  And the smoke really bothers my allergies.  Yesterday, though it was a beautiful day, I had to have the windows closed and the A/C on to keep the smoke out.  Today, the smoke isn’t as intense, so that’s nice.  I can leave my windows open.   I am thinking…That I can’t believe it’s time to start up school again already.  Paulie starts this week.  And…
