The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY:  May 25, 2010

Outside my window...it is a little cloudy and hazy, and it looks hot out there already. 

I am thinking...about my Mom, hoping she will be released from the hospital today. 

I am thankful for...the Holy Spirit, who is speaking to my heart today about my selfishness.  I am so thankful that God doesn't leave me as I am.

From the learning rooms...I am finishing Stepping Heavenward by Mrs. E. Prentiss.  The girls have the day off of school today!
From the kitchen...I just had my morning bowl of Banana Oats.  Apparently my breakfast rut is back.

I am wearing...PJ bottoms, t shirt, no socks.

I am creating...laundry piles.  I have four loads to fold and put away. 

I am going...to take Curlyjo to piano lessons today.  I am also getting my hair trimmed today, but I really just want to shave it all and start over.

I am reading...the book of Proverbs.  I need some wisdom (see the above statement).

I am hoping...that through this current trial, my family will be stronger, and I will be less interested in myself.

I am hearing...Curlyjo and her friend giggling upstairs.

Around the house...is the evidence that my mind has been distracted the last few days.  Things are disheveled and making me crazy.

One of my favorite things...fresh strawberries, local and in season.  One of my dearest friends gave me some, and it did just brighten my day.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Catching cuddles from my nephew (who is spending the night tonight),  keeping the garden watered, lunch at the park with friends, missing my sisters (who are traveling to Canada to see my parents).

Here is picture for thought I am sharing:
If you see these two ladies at the airport, be sure to tell them that the air in Canada is "so FREEEESH." 
It will make them smile :)


  1. I totally agree with you about the air in Canada...I am from Toronto and I miss the fresh air so much! And all the nice people!

    Thank you for your comment, I am glad I am not the only one who loves Gwyneth or I might feel like a loser. :) I bet your hair in it's "hot mess" state looks 100% better than mine right now!

  2. tell 'em to freak out the canadians and order an XL coke!!
