The Simple Woman's Day Book
Outside my window...It is a quite and peaceful Monday morning, it is cool and fall is in the air, we had rain all week-end and now the sun is peaking through every chance it gets.
I am thinking ..how lucky we are to live in a land where our freedoms are protected by our Constitution, may it always be so.
I am thankful …..for my family and for the good life I have had over the years, a good life, even though we are not rich, along way from it…thankful for my little house that we built 39 yrs ago, a very small home but big with memories and echoes of laughter from my three boys growing up. I am even thankful for the trials and heartache, which there are many, but each and everyone has made me a stronger person.
From the kitchen...for breakfast it’s hot coffee, and Orange cranberry scones.
Lunch green salad and chicken pasta soup
Supper, probably seafood subway for DH (it’s Wally World day)
Me I’ll play by ear. Not really hungry, think I have over done it the last couple of weeks. Feeling rather weak and tired.
I am wearing…gray Richland Baseball T-shirt..purple capris....with white socketts
I am going…to do as little as possible this week, don’t really feel like getting out of bed, much less do anything
I am creating...not much right now, but have a whole stack of to-do painting for Christmas which I must start soon..
I am reading...Still studying The Book of Daniel, what a great and complicated book.
I am hearing.... ….the soft sounds of Fox news on the living room TV, (DH went Dove hunting early before I woke up and left TV playing) with an occasional car passing on the highway.
Around the house... need to wash dishes or put them in washer and maybe a load of clothes
One of my favorite things...A cool fall morning when the ground is still damp from an over night shower, the world feels clean and renewed
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Monday…Go to Wally World, buy groceries, rest
Tuesday…will play it by ear…
Weds….Bible study we are studying the book of Daniel
Thurs…No real plans except to rest..
Fri. Taking Dear Sister out for lunch for her 68th Birthday which will be the 20th.
Sat. Going to a fish house with the Seniors from my Church.
Sunday …go to Church
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
We made this picture at the Quaker Village in KY several years ago...a true vision of the fall harvest that is soon to come...I never saw so many yellow jackets in one spot before, they didn't show up in the pictures. The Gentleman told us they came for the sweet juice of the apple cider and that they really didn't bother him...
