Simple Woman’s Daybook

For Today…February 16, 2009

Outside my Window…The curtains are shut as it’s now evening. We’ve had a windy day which felt much colder than 40+ degrees, due to the wind being from the northeast. Still, it smells and looks like spring will soon be here.

I am thinking…that I enjoy doing my daily work more than lying in bed. I was down for a couple days with a bad back, but went grocery shopping today with daughter Rebecca’s assistance, and am now cooking a simple dinner.

From the learning rooms…I’m continuing to learn more about the Love and Logic method as it applies to special education.

I am thankful for…God, for Who He is, and for every good and perfect gift He gives.

From the kitchen…Tonight I’m preparing oven-fried chicken, steamed broccoli, and a tossed green salad. Simple fare, but we enjoy it a lot.

I am wearing…an olive green hooded sweater over a darker tie-died green T shirt, and comfy black pants.

I am reading…more about vegetarianism, because my doctor says plants don’t have any cholesterol in them. He’s giving me six months to bring it down, or take a medicine.

I am hoping…that taking such things as butter, cheese and sour cream out of my diet will also result in a slightly slimmer me. I am content with myself as I am, as long as I’m healthy. Really.

I am creating…dinner and this blog post.

I am hearing…grandchildren Carly, Diederick and their mommy (our daughter Laura) talking in the living room. OK. Carly is making baby sounds, and occasionally shrieking.

Around the house…I can see, in my mind’s eye, where I want to plant some primroses. They’re available now, and I do love them.

One of my favorite things…is being well enough to do my daily work, and by God’s blessing I usually am well enough to work.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…I’ll just mention that tonight I’ll help Laura compile a list of Necessary Kitchen and Pantry Items. This should be fun!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…


This is the kitty who sleeps on my feet, Lucy-cat.

Hostess Peggy says this about The Simple Woman’s Daybook:

Are you content to linger on the simple things of life…then join me in taking a little look into the day plans and thoughts of those of us who are focusing on simplicity…the beauty of the everyday moments around us. That is my vision for this idea!
