The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside My Window... green grass growing tall and lush, birds hopping and singing, a clothesline full of little girl dresses, sheets, bibs, etc.

I am thinking...
about getting my house straightened, the fact that my girl needs her diaper changed and what we'll spend the evening doing as a family.

I am thankful for... long walks on a spring evening.

From the kitchen... fajitas and a green salad for dinner; I am not yet sure about supper, but I do have hamburger thawed.

I am wearing... my cornflower-blue nursing dress. ;) Also flip-flops, hair down and wavy from a braid, and my sculpey bead jewelry.

I am creating... places to organize and store girl clothes up in Greta's room--a needful thing after yesterday's baby shower at church. Thankfully among the gifts were some pretty baskets!

I am going... to go change the laundry around and kiss my Rosebud's cheeks.

I am reading... washing directions from the tags of little sunhats and pink sweaters.

I am hoping... to have the word of God become more and more the very air I breathe.

I am hearing... the sound of the washing machine spinning, birds tweeting and lawn mowers mowing.

Around the house... thank you cards to write in and send off on my table, springy-colored wooden spools of silk thread in a turquoise glass bowl, some piles of folded laundry to put away, hand-washed diaper covers drying on the backs of my dining room chairs (which are hardly dining room chairs because I don't really have a dining room but a main room in which we dine but I thought if I said dining room chairs you would better understand what I meant :)).

One of my favorite things... eating fresh sprouts--all that crunchy, juicy, green wonderfulness.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
Enjoy some sunshine, pull weeds in my flower beds, visit with my Mama and sibs tomorrow, get caught up on a bit more housework, bleach my shower curtain liner ;) ... a usual pleasantly quiet week.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
