Today I am linking to the Simple Woman's Daybook.
It seemed like a nice thing to do today on the Monday morning.
Outside My Window... It is going to be another beautiful spring day,
The sun is coming up, and the sky is tinted pink. The trees are lacy
with the brand new leaves. The breeze is making the leaves
shimmer in the early morning light. I am so thankful for this day.
I am thinking...That I wish I could stay outside all day. I wish that
the work in the house was all done so I could sit and watch chickens
and read a book and sew and dream. Maybe later after school...
I am thankful for...for all of the blessings the Lord has so graciously given
me and my family. My cup does overflow. I am thankful for the new day
that I have to start over with this morning.
From the learning rooms...I have learned that there are days when it
looks like not a lot got done but that in life we are told not to despise the
little things. I think that when we look back we see huge things that
happened and we don't remember each tiny thing that got us there.
From the kitchen...My husband is in the kitchen fixing his breakfast,
I need to be in there fixing his lunch. Instead of writing all of these
pithy thoughts. :)
I am wearing...My workin' clothes, sweatpants and a red and white
striped shirt with my running shoes.
I am creating...I am going to be drawing out the diagram for my
garden today. Tonight when my husband gets finished with
his day job, we are going to start putting the drip lines in the garden
and getting it ready to plant.
I am going...clean the kitchen, and all of the bathrooms and vacuum
the house and take something out for dinner, and go take care
of the chickens and take the dog for a walk.
I am reading...Inside the Revolution, by Joel C. Rosenberg, Savannah
Breeze by Mary Kay Andrews, Country Gardens, The Bible,
The 3 Investigators series by Alfred Hitchcock,
On my mind...How is my daughter doing this morning, my grand-kids,
getting school finished, taking next week off, Tomorrow is our 31st
anniversary, what am I going to do to celebrate it.
Around the house...getting ready to start living on the porches
instead of living in the house. It will be time for me to start rearranging
One of my favorite things...How beachy the day feels today. All I need
is the sound of the surf and it would be just like an early morning at the beach.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Taking a trip to a White Forest
that is a plant nursery. Going and buying some flowers I saw at Lowe's
that I can't get off my mind. Planting my garden, and being thankful.
Small window into my life... This is how big
our apricots are today. This is a early apricot tree
and even with no bees the tree is loaded. I am
so thankful for the fruit and wild orchard bees.
Thank you for stopping by to read my daybook.
It is nice to be able to get up this morning and
be thankful it is Monday.
Have a lovely day.
