The Simple Woman's Daybook...


July 14, 2008…

Outside my Window...I see the sky is so blue, the trees are green, and the flowers are so beautiful with all the colors there are…

I am thinking... how nice it would be to just enjoy the day with out having to accomplish anything but rest and relaxing…

I am thankful for... that I can still learn from my family and friends things that I thought could not be done, That in it self gives me hope to dream…

From the kitchen...I am cooking a casserole with chicken, carrots, celery, onions, potatoes, with a light dusting of herbs…this is all in chicken stock that I had made at the beginning of the month…

I am creating...a quilt that can be taken outside on the grass so I don’t have to worry about stains…I came upon suit fabric that my Gram had and with some denim I decided this was the purpose for these fabrics…

I am going...to the post office to mail out FQ’s for an exchange that I am in…

I am wearing...black Capri’s , Bright Floral Blouse and barefoot…

I am reading...The Cross Country Quilter by Jennifer Chiaverini along with Mary Jane’s Farm magazine…

I am hoping... and praying for a safe delivery of our new grandchild…

I am hearing...the TV and the thoughts in my head telling me we have to get going to get everything done today…

Around the house...we have hostas and yuccas growing everywhere…with flowers blooming and trees that we need to cut down…

One of my favorite things...the smell of fresh hung laundry…

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...to paint a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood for a train track…Scotty, Ellie & I have made plans to work on this all summer so it is done for Christmas…with Pappy’s help with all the wiring and setting up the control base to power the trains accessories…

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