The Simple Woman's Daybook today. Thank you for stopping by today.
Outside my window...The wind is blowing and the wind chimes are muttering to itself. The meadowlarks are singing in the field across the way and the song sparrows and announcing spring is here for all of the world to hear.
I am thinking...that I am glad for rain. I am looking forward to the clouds and the wind and the rain because it means I can stay inside and sew.
I am thankful...that today is Sunday, that God gives us rest. I am thankful for His provision in my life, even when I don't understand, I know that He does and He holds my hand.
In the kitchen...Cooking for 4 this week feels like nothing. I still don't know how to cook for 4 I am still cooking for an army.
I am wearing... Sweats, and a purple shirt and white tennis shoes.
I am creating...I have a rug I need to finish today. My next rug is all drawn out, but I will have to dye wool for that one. I have missed my dye pot.
I am going...to be busy next week will all kinds of life.
I am wondering...if I can be nice today. PMS is raging and R. is sick. Not a good combination. I think I should just go walk 20 miles today.
I am reading... God is an Englishman by R.L. Delderfield and Folly by Laurie R. King.
I am hoping...My kids that are at snow camp are having fun and keeping safe.
I am looking forward to... June
I am learning... I can push myself further than I think I can.
Around the house...We cleaned about 800 square feet of tile this week. I have about the same amount left to do not counting 3 bathrooms and my laundry room.
I am pondering...When can I start the flowerbeds and how long before it is warm enough.
A favorite quote for today...Time is a created thing and a gift. We can't make any more of it; we can only receive it and be faithful stewards in the use of it." (Discipline, The Glad Surrender.)
One of my favorite things...Watching the sun set in the evenings.
A few plans for the rest of the week: P. last behind the wheel with an instructor. Em's dress will be ready to pick up. Lots of other things.
A peek into my day...It will be a nice day as long as I keep a civil tongue in my head.
This picture is from last year. This year it has been all plowed.
