The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my window...
Today is beautiful and cool. The air is sweet (in the back yard.) There is a breeze
and it feels like the ocean outside. We got the garden all planted this weekend.
We got our Boysenberries put up on a third wire and expanded the rows,
now we have two rows of berries. Such a nice feeling.
I am thinking... I need to make a list of all of the things I would like to get
accomplished this summer. Right now though at the top of my list is making strawberry jam.
I am thankful for... My husband who does the hard work in the garden.
I am thankful so very much that doing this kind of work, never feels like
work, but like playing.
The learning room... This is our last week of school. There are the good
things about it and the bittersweet things too. My class room will shrink
to one, the joy though is seeing the fruit and the work of my hands be
oh so good.
From the kitchen...
I am making Chicken Pot pie for dinner tonight. I was so glad that
it was on the menu tonight. I have it almost prepared with the filling
in the freezer so all I have to do is make the pie crust.
I am wearing... Clothes and shoes as compared to sitting her buck naked
in front of the computer, I have never done that I just wanted to see
if you are paying attention. :)
I am creating...signs I need a whole bunch more signs for my garden as
I have so many different areas that I have to really think of what is planted
I am going... To the laundry room to fold a load of clothes and then upstairs
to do a tiny bit of school that we have left.
I am reading...The Bible, When I am on my knees, Keep a Quiet Heart,
Stories you wouldn't Believe by Gene Stratton Porter
Around the House... I am looking forward to summer schedule and
the fun and excitement of life every day.
One of my favorite things... New sewing patterns, and I love brand new
embroidery thread. To me they are like jewels I can hold in my hand and there
is no end to the impossibilities that they hold. All for 33 cents.
A few plans for the rest of the week... Cleaning house, playing in the garden,
going to a 2 year old birthday party for my grand daughter, getting to watch
all six babies play together, and eat birthday cake.
A small Window to my life...
I haven't done a daybook entry in awhile.
I thought I would like to thank Peggy for
hosting the Simple Woman's Daybook.
