The Simple Woman's Day Book

Outside my window...It is a normal Monday morning cars passing going to school, it is cool, down to 60 this morning, the birds are singing and the cows in the pasture softly lowing. What a beautiful Day God has made.

I am thinking...How much I have to do today and how blessed I am to be able to do it..

I am thankful …..for this day God has given us, for my new flooring, now nice it is to not breath all the dust formed by the carpet and yes it had to be vacuumed everyday, still formed dust everywhere.

From the kitchen...for breakfast it’s hot coffee, and fresh strawberry turnovers. Lunch will pick something up in town. Supper, home made hamburgers with sides of homemade fries and onion rings…I know all fried fats…oh well, at my age something is going to kill me might as well die happy.

I am wearing…white shorts, maroon T and pink slippers..

I am going…start cleaning outside today, Flower beds need cleaning out to plant fall flowers.

I am coaster sets with special pictures in them as little Christmas happys.

I am reading...Still The Book of Daniel, what a great and complicated book.

I am hearing...DH watching Fox News….

Around the house...House is spotless, will start on the carport and patio today.. Clothes need washing also.

One of my favorite things...watching my little ChiChi run in the fresh fall air, she doesn’t play a lot because of hip problems cause by being hit by car…

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday…Go to Wally World, buy groceries, get started on cleaning and reorganizing car port and patio.
Tuesday…continue with cleaning yard for big Labor Day BBQ also will be Birthday party for 2 youngest sons and DH. All Aug. birthdays 8th 27th and 28th.
Weds….Bible study we are studying the book of Daniel
Thurs…No real plans except to rest..
Sat.  Play it by ear
Sunday …go to Church
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
When I took this I was just playing with my camera, I was taking a picture of the flower of a chives plant, didn't see my little visitor, click on picture to see it real clear...
Hope you have a great day. don't forget to check out the other daybooks for today.


  1. Hey Molly, I checked below at your new floors. Girl, they look wonderful. I know you are going to enjoy them.

    Like you I need to get out and work in my flower beds. We have weeds galore. But with this wonderful weather I think it will be a perfect time to do it.

    But first, like you, I have to go to Wally world for groceries and necessities.

    Have a great week!

  2. Your floors do look great. It is just the right temp to get outside and spruce up the yard and patio after a long hot summer. I'm going to do that too.

  3. I am laughing my big butt off at you today, are in fine fettle the remarks about the fried foods and "might as well die happy." LOL...

    Give ChiChi a kiss for is so cute to see the fall air perk the pets up, their little eyes look so shiny and excited when they feel that "snap" in the air...

  4. Dear Molly~I'm so thankful that I met you on the web, and consider you one of my sista's. You're sweet, honest, and just plain funny.
    God love ya'!

  5. It's always so wonderful to count our blessings... simple though they may be!

  6. Hey Molly,
    Send me some of your energy. I need it. Whew, I'm tired after reading all you've done.

  7. Dear Rooster Party Participant,

    Just a reminder that the Rooster Party is this Friday, August 28th. I am so glad you joined and I'm really looking forward to seeing your Roosters.

    Hope you have a wonderful time!


  8. You have been busy! I need to make a "to-do" list!
