The Simple Woman's Daybook
I am feeling a bit uncreative today and I haven't had a entry for
The Simple Woman's Daybook in a while so today I am going to do a entry.
Peggy is so kind to offer this and I have met so many nice ladies.
Outside my window... The humidity is finally gone and the temperature is finally dropping.
The air is cleaner and I can see the mountains again. The sky is blue again,
without the heat clouds nor are the thunderheads over the mountains.
I am thinking... I am excited for a new week. I am looking forward to new projects,
new things to do and I love the feeling of being creative. It is time to start
planning my new school year and that is always exciting. I do enjoy planning
the school year.
I am thankful... for rest. I have rested this weekend and I feel so much better
and my mind is clearer than it has been.
From the learning rooms... I have learned that even though hard times come
joy always comes in the morning. Facing fears is better than hiding from them.
In the kitchen... I have lots of food I want to cook this week. I also have some
new jam recipes I want to try making. I do enjoy making jam, but eating it is just
as much fun.
I am wearing... My favorite shorts, they are gray with pockets so I can put everything in
them and not carry anything in my hands. I am wearing a black shirt because I can
carry eggs in it from the hens and not have to grab a bucket.
I am creating...I am working on a couple of rug projects and I have a couple of counted-cross
stitch things I am doing.
I am going... To be very busy this week. The weather will be cooler so I need to work in my
garden and my back flowerbeds. I am also going to start cleaning the school room.
I am wondering... why I can't always have tons of energy. It is so much more fun. I wish
I never got tired.
I am reading... Oh lots of stuff. I got 30 book at the library. I found this lady named
Laura Childs. She is a cozy mystery lady and she writes about a tea room. I am still making
my way through the series with Beatrix Potter and so they are all very light reading.
My last bit before I knuckle down before planning school.
I am hoping... I ordered wool today. I am so excited. I have never done that before.
I can't wait to get it.
I am looking forward to... This week, have I said that before? I am really excited about
I am hearing... The sound of the air conditioning, not much else. The boys are quiet upstairs.
Two of them are gone and my husband is outside.
Around the house... I am so glad I have a house to live in.
I am pondering...to clean house tomorrow or chop weeds in the garden. Or try and do both.
That is when I wish I was superwoman.
One of my favorite things...I can't believe I am going to write this, but I am, right now,
watching Dr. Who with my husband in the evening. :)
A few plans for the rest of the week: Work on my quilt, work on my rugs.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
I wanted to see how close I could get to a sunflower without loosing
my focus. I liked this. I even got a few drops of nectar in the shot.
I hope you have a great week and I want to again thank Peggy.
