The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my Window.....blue skies, bright sunlight and a breeze moving the branches of the big oak trees.

I am thankful for....safe travels for my daughter as she flew home from France. After three long months it is so good to have her home.

From the kitchen...a few jars of pickled eggplant to make our sandwiches taste delicious!

I am wearing...a green short-sleeved shirt, blue shorts and my white socks that pass for slippers these days.

I am reading..."Sarah's Quilt" by Nancy Turner

I am hoping...the businessmen who said they were interested in our house will decide to buy it!

I am creating... tiny baby blankets for the little babies in our local hospital.

I am hearing...the hum and whirr of the washing machine and dryer. I am really thankful for the work they do for me.

Around the house...it is time to do something with my sadly neglected flower garden. The lack of rain and unrelenting heat of the summer months have taken a toll on it. And I have been too lazy up until now to get out there and do something about it.

One of my favorite things...is sitting on the couch with a good book and a cup of tea.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...piano lessons tomorrow afternoon, Bible Study wednesday morning, volunteer work at church wednesday afternoon, choir practice wednesday evening, a weekend trip to visit the kids and grands in Dallas!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

This is our resident Roadrunner. I am constantly amazed at the creativity of the Father. This little guy is such fun to watch. I even caught him perched on the edge of the birdbath the other day - getting a deep drink of water.

oh wow, I haven't seen a road runner in so long!!! Thanks for the picture. I'm from Texas, but we're in Florida now.

I've never seen a roadrunner before, so I showed my husband and reminded him you're from TX. He said we have them here! Well, I didn't know that. I've only lived here my whole entire life! lol

Have a blessed and happy week, Linda!

The roadrunner is so cute! You're right about God's creativity and sense of humor.

I love this post - and should join in sometime. Your comment to me today was so apropos to your situation - I trust the businessman you mentioned in your post will work out! What a long wait you have had. Did you ever unpack??

How delightful to have roadrunners in your area...that's something I've never seen in person, only in pictures!

Enjoyed reading your Simple Woman's Daybook....glad to hear that your daughter is now home safe and sound! I'm always thankful for my washer and dryer as well...when I think of what our ancestors had to go through to do the washing makes me cringe! lol xoxo

This daybook is such a nice idea. Thanks for the picture of the roadrunner. I've never seen one in "Person."

This is a beautiful post. It speaks to my heart because of the pleasure of simple things. God bless you, Sister, and thanks for taking the time to share. Dee

This is a fun meme and perhaps I'll try it sometime. So glad to hear you daughter is home safe and sound.
Enjoyed seeing the roadrunner picture!
I know that those businessmen buying your home would be the answer to your prayers.

I've never seen a real road runner. I don't think that I knew they were real. I thought it was just in the cartoons... duh on me! Thanks for the insight.

I love sitting on my couch with a good book and a cup of tea, too! So calming... go have a cup right now and enjoy the moment! Great post!
