• Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ 5/10

      FOR Sunday May 10th   Outside my window…Blue skies, slight wind and a bit chilly, just around 60 degrees.  Not too bad, but feels chilly when we were in the low 70’s last week.  🙂   I am thinking…About what I want to pack for this coming weekend’s craft getaway.   I am thankful…For the ability to go to the craft weekend.  Paul and the kids are always so great at letting me go and taking care of things when I’m away.  And my mom always blesses me with the trip itself.  It’s all such fun.   In the kitchen…Pasta sauce is simmering on the stove, we’ll make pasta…

      FOR Sunday May 3rd   Outside my window…Cloudy and damp.  Not raining, but feels like it’s going to.  In the mid 60’s.  A nice, damp spring day.   I am thinking…How beautiful our lilac tree is this year.  It’s lasting a lot longer than it usually does.   I am thankful…For the nice lilac smell in our house.  Paul cut some lilacs off one of our trees and they are in a pretty vase.  It’s giving such a nice smell to the house.   In the kitchen…Ham and potato soup, burgers on the grill, macaroni salad.   I am wearing…Pink capris and a black shirt.   I am creating…Not…

      FOR Sunday April 26th   Outside my window…Cloudy, windy, wet and chilly.  It’s definitely different than the warm, clear weather we’ve been having.  But the moisture is always needed.   I am thinking…That I don’t want to have to go out in this weather to take my son to his youth group this afternoon.  I miss having Sarah around to take him for me.  But she works on Sundays.   🙂 But I’m blessed he enjoys youth group so much.   I am thankful…For a landlord that fixes things in our house quickly.  On Thursday night we realized the heating element in our water heater went out.  By Friday afternoon…

      FOR Sunday April 19th Outside my window…Beautiful blue sky, green growing on the trees and in yards and warmer weather.  I really enjoy spring time around here. I am thankful…For such a great spring break we’ve been having and Paulie’s birthday.  We have 2 extra days, Monday and Tuesday for our spring break, which is a nice bonus.  It’s been relaxing and just what we all needed.  And Paulie really enjoyed his birthday. In the kitchen…Not much this week.  Chicken and rice pasta, pot roast and mashed potatoes, homemade bread and chocolate birthday cake. I am wearing…A green skirt and a black shirt. I am creating…I’ve been coloring and…

      FOR Sunday April 12th Outside my window…Blue skies with puffy white clouds, but lots of wind and only in the 40’s.  Wind and 40’s means it probably feels in the 30’s. But I am enjoying the sun, and if the wind dies down at all, then I’ll go for a walk. I am thinking…Of what I want to accomplish today on my day off.  I’m seeing lots of crafts and audio books today.  🙂 I am thankful…That my daughter Sarah finally has found a good, full time job and is really enjoying it.  She’s been there just over 1 1/2 weeks, and so far it’s looking real good.  This…
