The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my window: The leaves are falling from the live oak trees and very soon we will see tiny new leaves take their places
I am thinking: about how I struggle with balancing all the different things in my life - never seeming to get things in the right order. I am working on listing five "must do" things in my daily journal and prioritizing them.
I am thankful for...: God's presence in our lives and answered prayer for my Dad. I'm thankful too for good doctors and the amazing technology that can provide a machine to cleanse one's blood. Amazing.
From the kitchen...a big pot of lentil soup. Our weather is warming up so I think this will be the last of the soup for a while.
I am wearing: tan shorts, blue tee shirt and white socks. We took a walk earlier this afternoon, and it was rather warm!
I am reading...: another Miss Read book - "The Year at Thrush Green" and "Why?" by Anne Graham Lotz
I am hoping... and praying that my Dad's dialysis treatment goes well tomorrow.
I am creating...: dishrags and learning to knit continental style. After so many, many years of knitting the way I was taught by my Aunt Fanny, I've discovered that this way is much faster - once you master it that is. I'm all thumbs right now but determined to learn.
I am hearing: It is absolutely quite in my house right now. I am making a deliberate effort to take the time to shut off all the other noises for a little while during the noisy day.
Around the house... : laundry day and the day to put clean sheets on the bed. How I love climbing between freshly washed sheets at night. Bliss..
One of my favorite things: listening to my Easter CD
A few plans for the rest of the week...: to get back to the normal routine -Bible Study, piano lessons, working outside. It is so nice to just spend time at home.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
My Grandmother and me. I've just been thinking a lot about family these days and how precious the days we have together really are.
